Here’s to new beginnings


Well, it’s been a while since I posted last, and so much has happened in that time.

Between then and now I managed to get a brand new job, which is a marked improvement over the last one. I have good people to work with, and good and interesting work to do.  I’m working in a hospital now, and it’s interesting work.

Needless to say life is much less stressful, and I’m grateful for it.

I’ve fallen into a strange rut for the last several months, and I’m just now feeling like a human being again. Too much sleeping, too much eating, and too much playing games… Avoiding everything. All good anesthesia, but not good for living.

Today, I decided to take the plunge and get something going that is long overdue. Nothing so energizing as a good project!

My bedroom is painted two different, terribly awful, colors of brown. Ugh… So awful! Today that is getting fixed. If my bedroom feels so gross, and it’s supposed to be the most serene place in the house, that’s a problem easily rectified with new curtains and paint!

Progress will be documented and posted later. For now, I’m diving in head first and see how much I can get done this week.

Here’s wishing for you a creative outlet to help get you out of whatever rut you may be in. Blessings all!

Ahh….the joys of a nice hot bath!


I finally finished painting the bathroom today and we got the new shower curtain up. It’s not completely done as it still needs to have the new light fixture put in and the

mirror and towel bars hung up, etc., but it’s usable for now. The boys have been teasing me that the paint looks pink, though it is a light mocha, so light it’s almost white. I hate pink, and can’t see it myself, but if that’s all they have to tease me about then life’s not so bad.

The boys went out to the YMCA with their father for a few hours, so I took the opportunity to try out the new tub. Ah! It was so nice to soak in hot water again! I laid my head back down into the water and just let it float there for a while and closed my eyes. I thought about all the stuff that’s happened in the last two weeks with this bathroom remodeling project, and reveled in how grateful I am that it’s almost done.  I must have laid there for about 15 minutes just meditating on the joys of a nice, quite bath in my new bathroom.

Then I opened my eyes…and the paint wasn’t pink. Life is good!
