I can’t tell you what a difference it makes to have the security bars taken off our windows.
Before moving into this house, we never lived anywhere that had them. So for me, it was really a depressing experience looking out the windows everyday and seeing bars.

Each time I looked at them, it tugged at my spirit just a little.

Some people like security bars, and maybe if we lived in a crime prone area I would be grateful for them, but that’s not the case.

After the guys removed the bars, I literally felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.

I guess its because I already have been tied to the house due to Simone’s special needs. We can’t just jump up and take her places with us and there are times where I won’t be able to get out of the house for two weeks or more….no exaggeration!

So you can imagine what that can do to my psyche right? Having bars on the windows just exacerbated the whole situation. Well, the bars are gone, and every day I’m thankful for that!

We have been working on the master bathroom and bedroom over the last few weeks and its coming along very nicely. We wrapping things up in there, and as soon as we are done we’ll take pictures and post them, talking a little about the process.

I haven’t been online much at all, and since we shifted gears in the house to kick it up a notch pushing to get more done quickly, I need to sacrifice my blogging time for a little while.

I’ll be back soon though, taking a break in a little over a week from now.
