A little help from my friend

We have 3 different families looking at our house for sale tomorrow morning. I stayed home from the work site to clean. A very good friend came over to help. I could not thank her enough! So I'm pretty tired. I keep asking the same questions. Juergen tells me the schedule at the work site, and a few minutes later I ask him again. I just am tired! Today Juergen is painting Jessica's bedroom. The wall between the kitchen and living room is being built, and the floor in Thomas' bedroom is being leveled out. Hopefully the tile will be installed tomorrow in the upstairs hall. We ordered a Terracotta tile, but didn't like it when it came. So I went to another store today and bought something for the hallway. I'm hoping I can get Juergen to give me the handmade French terracotta for the main hall on the ground floor. He doesn't like it, but I love it. It is classic! Nicole agrees with me. She comes home from camp in 2 days. Perhaps she can help me convince Juergen to buy the handmade terracotta? Either way, we need to buy something for that floor. We canceled the order we had.

Today Nicole is 18 years old. I miss her! She is at camp. I'm sure she had a great time doing what she loves. I gave her a card on Sunday to open today. I have gifts for her when she gets home. It's hard to believe she is all grown up. I try very hard not to think about it. I'm just grateful she is such a great person. I am extreamly blessed to have such a gift of a daughter! I'm also very glad she will live with us at least a little while. I know it won't be long until she moves out on her own...but I'm gratful for now.
