Out of the Blue

I haven’t posted in ions. My life has taken a different path once again. A good positive path.

I went in halves on a house with my ex-husband. The house is for my boys and I. I guess I can say it is definitely my dream home with a lot of work ahead of me but so worth it.

From time to time I am going post before and after pics of the reno.


The picture with the fake red brick was the kitchen before it was totally gutted. The cabinet doors are what my son and I stained to a darker color. No more drop ceiling yay! All these are basically of the kitchen. More to come!


What is in the air?

I don’t know how to explain the feelings I have been having over the past couple of days/weeks but it’s a kind of nervous, weird, anxious, odd feeling? The really weird part about it is that there are some other people around me that said they are feeling the same way. Even my doctor said that over the past two days almost all of her patients has had high blood pressure. Including the ones that don’t normally have high blood pressure. What is that all about?

I though it was just me. I can’t put a finger on it. So weird.

I hope it goes away soon.

Anybody else feeling odd lately?

I didn’t get the job

But you know what, I’m not upset like I was the first time I interviewed for it. It just wasn’t meant to be. It’s that plain and simple.

I have to move my mom and dad up from Florida in a couple of months and there is no way I would have gotten my vacation time before then.

I was offered a temporary subbing job the last two months in my son’s school. Which will be his last two months of 6th grade! How can I pass up that once in a lifetime opportunity? I get to go to school with my son for his last two months of elementary school.

This is life and sometimes you just have to roll with it. There is nothing you can do to change it and what is meant to be will truly be.

I love my life. I have no major complaints. What more could I ask for.


Good Morning everyone

Hey everyone good morning! Well it’s the day after my 45th bday and I have to say the chemicals in my body or maybe it’s the position of the moon but I’m feeling pretty damn good.

I’m running off now to take the rugrats to school and then to Mikes. Working a little bit today in the garage but off to Motor’s Diner first (our fav breakfast place). How can anyone not recognize that the simple pleasures in life are sometimes the most rewarding?

Boys are crying because they wanted another snow day lol. Fat chance boys off to school you go!

Anyway take time for yourself today to get yourself together and regroup if you are having a not so good morning in your mind. Take care of you. Sometimes all it takes is 5 or 10 mins to sit, relax, drink your coffee or tea, and put on your favorite tunes. Do it!!!

Okay, I have to go clean the snow off my car and do some shoveling. Brrrr…. love it though and I wouldn’t trade upstate NY for anything. I gotta have my change of seasons.

Have a great day everyone!
