Hello? Is Anyone Out There? Is This Thing On?

Hello World!

It has been a long while since I have visited you via this blog! I have NOT been doing anything Fancy, Fabulous, or Fantastic. Nope , I have just been doing the regular, everyday things that people generally do. You know WORK, WORK, WORK, WORK, WORK, WORK (said in my best Rihanna voice!)

I did however finally move into my own apartment back in February! (Yaaaayyyy!)

It may seem weird to you but this is the FIRST TIME I have lived TOTALLY ALONE! I mean no husband, no kids, no grandkids, no sister, no mother, JUST ME! It is a fabulous feeling. I don't have to worry about thinking about other people, such as making sure my music is not too loud, or making sure to buy the kind of food that everyone likes to eat, or making sure the babies or grand babies are not too loud, or making sure there is enough room/space for everyone. Living with others can be draining and tiring sometimes.

But one thing I DO NOT like about living alone is having to put things together myself! Uggghhhhh! I AM NOT that DIY type of chick. I bought a desk that came in what seemed to be a HUNDRED PIECES! But hey I got it together... FINALLY (and it took the ENTIRE weekend!).

Anyway, I am still decorating and buying little things here and there (when I am not drowning in rent and bills!). But all in all I am very pleased with myself! I love the peace and quiet of being alone. I LOVE being an Empty-Nester!

Oh, Hey, speaking of DIY. My daughter and I went to a junk/antique sale a few weekends ago and I found this cute little bench that I kind of liked. But being so anti-DIY I came back to look at it 2-3 times before I decided to buy it. It was a cute little piece but it needed a paint job and to be recovered. Did I already say that I DO NOT DO DIY STUFF??? So my daughter convinced me that she and her grandmother would do the project and it would not take long, so I finally gave in and bought the bench. the before and after pictures are below. SHOUT OUT TO THE DIY TWINS (that is what I call my mother and my daughter because they LOVE that stuff) they did an AWESOME JOB! I had to go with them to the fabric store (Ughhh, Shudder, Oh to shudder means to tremble convulsively, typically as a result of fear or revulsion.) 
And I even helped a little (for like 2 minutes! LOL!).



My 2 Minute Input!

So any way that is a quick update on my sooooooo exciting life! LOL! I am completely thankful, that God continues to bless me!
So... What have you guys been up to?

Peace & Love All
