And after that ramble I am going to take a deep breath.....
I know! I know! I still haven't posted my Mom's kitchen yet... that's because, well, it's not quite done! There was a big delay with the back ordered floor, and that caused everything else to fall behind, but I promise, soon! I would not leave you all hanging like that! :)There are still just a few bits and pieces on the punch list to finish up in the next few weeks.
here are some exciting things coming up!
-Here is a peek at paint colors I am looking at for my living room.:)
-And we are going to be swapping rooms and getting bunkbeds for Oldest and Middle to share, and youngest is now getting her own room. So there's another make-over!
-And I am happy to say that we are going to be ripping out the carpets in our second floor and painting the existing wood.
-And I get to be In The Bloglight this week with Hometalk!
-And I have a new series I am starting called What would you do Wednesday? Starting next week!I have had quite a few e-mails asking me for decorating advice. I am not an expert, but many of you are and have some great ideas!! Every Wednesday, I am going to post a reader's home and YOU can give your advice on how they can achieve the look they want. This will be a place to help each other out creatively and with kindness. If you would like to have your home considered, please e-mail me above at the address on the Contact me page under my header.
-And MOST OF ALL I am happy to say my Mojo is back; and not because the kiddos are finally back in school. It has to do with that sneaky, little thing called a Thyroid.
For MONTHS I felt like I had a nursing baby at home. You know, that bone weary tired, not enough sleep, hungry all of the time feeling? It started around February/March and I thought it was because 40 was approaching. I just couldn't seem to get anything done. I am sure you noticed that my blog content was sliding too. Projects seemed like so much extra work. It seemed my normal get up and go just got up and went. I felt like I couldn't get through anything, let alone have the energy to starting something new! I would get out of bed and I felt like hadn't even slept.My poor kids watched more TV this summer than they ever have;I am sure their brains are completely rotten by now. I just didn't have the energy to do anything with them, we didn't even do their normal summer workbooks!
It was one of those things that came on so slowly, that at first I thought it was nothing.And then I thought it was because I hadn't exercized in ages, but to be honest, I couldn't even summon up the energy to get off the couch!And my wholesale accounts, I struggled just to keep up!And I kept forgetting simple things, I felt like I was 80!
Then I started having a ton of crazy tummy issues in May, and to cut long story short, after not getting the answers I needed from my own M.D., (I count my blessings that I work for a medical company) I had my own blood work done in July.
It turns out all of my tiredness, stomach issues and some other things were all related to a slow and lazy Thyroid. I've been on Meds for a month and a half now and what a difference! I am slowly starting to feel like there is a fog lifting from in front of my eyes. And even though I am on a ton of stomach medicine now, my Gastroenterologist thinks that once they get my Thyroid completely regulated I can be completely weaned off of them! Which will be a blessing, I am not a good pill taker at all!
It's crazy how your body changes!
But thanks for hanging in there with me this year. In fact, thanks for hanging in there with me for the last 5 years!!! I just passed my 5 year blogiversary. Can you believe it?
I am a blogosaurus!!! :)
I did want to share a sneak peek at the Room 363 grand opening. I am still editing pictures, but here are a few quick snaps of Mark's amazing space!
It was amazing! It was a great grand opening. The Shop is gorgeous and it was wall to wall people the entire time!
So there you are!
My Mojo's back! I am ready for another 5!
