Hi Friends!
How have you been?  I've been doing well; really well.  :)

My new found freedom is awesome.  I know things will change when the weather warms up and I have to wear less clothes ;-) but for now I am enjoying not having that black cloud over me at all times.

I'm wondering if I have mono or something?? I am so.tired.  Like, all the time.  Last night Josh put me in bed at 7:15 and I instantly conked out.  I woke up for an hour and a half with Nora at 4, then fell back asleep and could barely drag myself out of bed at 8:30.  That's not normal, right?  I don't know, maybe all the sleep deprivation is catching up with me. ;-) 

I saw this quote on Pinterest and I really like it.
I know it's not the case for all situations, but it's a good reminder.

How do you like my new background? I felt like it was time for a change. :)  I also made lots of little changes around my house.  I am no interior decorator, that's for sure. ;-) But the other night I was waiting up for Josh to get home from one of his fundraising events, and I got the itch to DO something.

I added strips of burlap to the tops of my window frames, because it looked so incomplete/unfinished before.  
I also made this little arrangement over the desk where we keep all our art supplies and games.
The sign says:
Help Each Other
Be Thankful
Know You Are Loved
Pay With Hugs and Kisses
Try New Things
Be Happy
Show Compassion
Be Grateful
Dream Big
Respect One Another
Laugh Out Loud

I love, love, love, LOVE it. :)  

Then I bought some material because I was going to make a valance for over my kitchen window.  But I am a complete sewing novice and I had them cut it the wrong direction; so all the birds were going sideways and upside down. :-P  So I put on my creative hat and came up with this, instead:

Ugh, sorry it's blurry.  You can't even tell what it is, LOL. Oh well, I'm leaving it in there. ;-)

Anyway, that's what I've been up to around here.  I will leave you with this; I am not sure why, but I find it HILARIOUS!!
Poor drunk flamingo, LOL! 

Happy Thursday!


  1. so glad to hear your doing well even if tired

  2. Smart idea to change things up to help with your mood/state of emotions. It might seem like it's not normal to be that tired, but you do have a house full of young children! That takes so much energy and effort. I'm back...I've missed you.

  3. Sorry long time, my mom was in the hospital for 10 days, ugh, now she is back her with me so I have no time. I don't know how you do everything with kids.
    Hope you realize you will get where you need to be through happiness not deprivation. Plus the journey is so much better.
    Miss you, I read everything as soon as I can so keep it coming. xo, MB
