I Need Me X 4...and a helmet

I am having one of those days.
Actually I am having many of them.
You know.....
things and info shooting at you for every direction.???
Ever have that happen?
I would love to wear a 'life helmet',
just to hold my brains in place.

back to planning....
and negotiating with my wonderful partner.
And he is is just that we are very much alike.
So....use your imagination.
As I compromise on things I do not want to,
the inside of my head feels just like a pinball machine on 'TILT'  

This to shall pass and I will adjust.
And remain grateful for the opportunity.

I am just staying close to G.O.D.
'good orderly direction'

And as many of you know,
 my mom has lost her companion of 16 years.
Thor, her beloved dalmation.
We all loved him.
So ...I will be going up to Maine
 to do some hand holding and other nice things.

  6. I'm sure there are plenty of days you feel like your mind will explode but the end result will be many..great things, experiences and success. Just take yourself back to the very worst day with dragon lady and you'll know you are doing what you are meant to do. Give your mom a huge hug from me. I feel horrible for her loss.

    Best to you both xo xo

  9. oh deb....
    i think the stress pulling this place together,
    has compounded by my worries by my concern for mom,
    and her certain heartbreak. xx

  10. spending time with my mom always makes things better... even if I go to help her with something, her words and wisdom always end up helping me with something... even if I am not aware that I need it.. Hope you get some good "mom time"!
    sorry to hear about Thor... :(

    ((hugs ))

  11. I am doing the happy dance come on send me the dates, I am excited. awaiting an email with a conformation of date

    Mama xxx
    We will go to the boats and get Lobsta

  12. All your hard work will pay off, it always does! And your mom will find happiness again, she needs time. (And who knows, in time, there might be another wonderful beast that needs rescuing out there...)

  13. I so know that feeling. Sometimes I fear I add to the short circuiting by ingesting TOO MUCH CAFFEINE.

    Breath, have a good laugh an enjoy every moment of your visit,

    xo Jane

  14. Have a lovely time with your Mom. Love the 'Get Centered' pic on your sidebar, it really cracked me up!

    All will be OK on the day!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
