the monday blogger....

I have sat down to blog several times over the last week.

Tuesday I was so sick I couldn't hold my head up long enough.

Wednesday I painted more and the day got away from me.

Thursday I had a girls day out .

Friday I painted more.

Saturday I was at the football field all day.

Sunday, more at the football field and finished painting.

Monday....... here I am.

I have been thinking about what I want to blog about today and every time I think about the 20 things I want to talk about, it is clouded by one thing. So I am going to get one thing out here, because then I can write about the other things.

I have gone thru alot of life redirection in the past couple months. I can't believe this all started about 2 months ago. Due to alot of different factors, alot of different people, and probably alot to do with life and how life goes.
I have been dealing with everything the best I can. I have really learned to take things one day at a time, deal with things as they come and I have found it is working. I had to learn to let things go. I had to learn that no matter what you do or say, it can be twisted and turned into anything. I had to learn there are just not so good people in the world. I had to learn that some people are drama driven. I had to learn so people can't let things go. I had to learn there is just some ugliness that you can do nothing about. But in all these lessons, I have also learned that there are some wonderful people in this world. That there are people that can keep your faith in people. I have learned that you can get hurt, stomped on , spit at and you can still rise above and keep your head up. I have learned that you can believe in yourself, even if no one else does.

I have also learned that no matter how much you remove yourself from the ugliness, it has a way of creeping back at you. Then being who you are, you have to just move on once more, you have to just let them bounce off. It is so sad, to watch this. To know that no matter that you have left , you have moved on....some just can't let it go. They can't survive without hurting another human being. They have to attack one through another person. They actually wake in the morning with a conscious thought to write words to hurt another. It is just amazing. It is so amazingly sad.

So I needed to get this out. I needed to release this. I now can move on once again. I have learned in the past two months, that leaving thing there to fester is not a good thing. You can't put energy into the negative and still have energy for all the positive things that you need to do. It is just too exhausting.

So today, as I move on.....

Today is my friend Kim B.'s birthday!!! Happy birthday dear one....You are the hippest 39 year old I know! Oh that still cool to be hip?

Today the painting is done! Tomorrow the subfloor gets done, and maybe Thursday the pergo gets layed! Pictures are coming....I just need to get some good pictures!

Josh has made the Varsity Wrestling team!! He has a meet on Saturday, hope it is good one for him.

Wildberry Lemonades are GOOD!

Grungeboard is fun!!

59 Days till January Scrappin Away Vacation!

36 days till Christmas!!

only 3 days till that delicious Turkey and all the fixins!


  1. there is just too much positive in this world for us to focus on the negative! You are a wonderful mother, an honest business woman, and crafty as all get out.

    Oh and might I add....CANT FRIGGING WAIT FOR JANUARY!!!!!!!

  2. it forever amazes me that there are people out there that consider themselves grownups and have nothing better to do than to try and hurt others. And to do it through others is even more unbelieveable. I think you must be missed , because on Monday, Tuesday, Wednsday, Thurdsay, Friday, Saturday and Sunday you (and us) had a full and happy life without all the drama...and by Monday...the drama queens placed themselves back in the center of things! They miss you!

    To the drama queens I say find your own happy place......PLEASE! It's time...really! :)

  3. Thanks for the bday wishes and bday martini! Yummy!!!

  4. Totally agree. Everyone, just PLEASE move on!

  5. Just wanted to tell you I love you and don't let it get you down. You are too strong and too good for it. So proud of you for what you have accomplished in these last 2 months. Be proud of yourself too.
