Seven years ago, when I was still in college, my family used to tease me about the three 'C's'. What are the three 'C's'? Well, they were, in my opinion, the three things in life that I couldn't do with out. If I had to give up everything else, these were the three things that I would want to keep (speaking in a totally selfish, shallow manner here, of course). And, they all happened to start with 'C'. That first year of school, here are three things that I found necessary in my life---a Cello, a Car, and a Computer. The cello I already owned, and was taking lessons on. The car, well I bought that the summer after my freshman year. The computer---that was a necessary piece of equipment that I purchased the second semester of my freshman year (the computer that just died on me, actually).
And then, during my second year at college, I added another 'C'. Can anybody guess what it was? A Curtis!! LOL. And not just any Curtis, mind you, although they're all nice :) I had my eye set on a particular Curtis, one named Joel, specifically :)
Well, seven years later, here is where I stand on my four 'C's'---I still own my cello, although I don't play it nearly as much since I've had kids. My computer---well, you all know the fate of that! And my car?? It now belongs to a friend of ours at church--we had no need of it anymore.
So you see, the only 'C' that I really needed was Joel!! :) He is the incredibly handsome, smart, caring, spiritually mature, loving man that makes his wife so happy every day.
And what is that man doing right now? He's at Lowe's, buying 90 floor tiles. You see, ever since we moved into our house, my laundry space has been less than desireable. I don't have a laundry room, per se, just a corner in the basement where we keep the washer and dryer. But today, Joel is going to start installing a new tile floor for me around my washer, dryer, and utility sink. I am so excited!! It will be so much easier to clean, look so much nicer, and it will be almost like I have an actual laundry room :)
Who would have known seven years ago that I'd be so excited about a new floor??
