What’s Up?

What’s up with me and what’s up with you?  How are you doing?  Are you staying above water?  Are you on task, on goal and feeling accomplished?

I don’t think I am.  I think I am more or less just putting one foot in front of the other and getting by.

This has been a strange year for me. 

It’s my hope that next year will be easier emotionally.  I hope that I will be able to relax into the next 4 years. But really, I don’t think it will be relaxing.

I have an elderly mom, a teenage daughter and I am a single mom with a full time job.  The word relax just isn’t in my vocab!

So what’s a girl to do?  (Can I still call myself “girl”)? 

OMG, I still want to be able to call myself a “girl” but at 53, is that silly?  I still feel much like the same old me, only a bit more tired. 

Well, in order to make it on a daily basis I keep myself busy with work,  my blog and weird stuff around the house. 

Like putting up a Christmas Tree, two weeks before Thanksgiving!  Okay, that is weird.  But hey, whatev.


See the box that I put the tree on?


I plan on wrapping that with some gift wrap.  I think it will look cute.  I bought this wrapping paper:


I will probably do that tonight. 

I have a few other little projects to do as well.

Like these leftover Fall  pumpkins.


I plan to paint them white and add some bling.

And this branch:


I plan to paint that white and add some sparkle!

And this Eifel tower:


I don’t plan on doing anything with it.  😉  I just had to have it.

As you can see, I just keep busy doing little inexpensive things.

I like having little projects to look forward too. 

Oh I still have my home made Christmas gifts to finish! 

So that’s what I’m up to.  A lot of little things.

What are you up to girl?  Or… boy!

  1. This girl is barely upon water these days! My employer is filing bankruptcy and told me today that I needed to start looking for a job – despite telling me repeatedly that all was well. So…STRESS! I really home 2014 is better. I can’t handle a repeat of 2013!! (Love that white tree!)

  2. First time commenter here! I ehjoy reading your blog and am in a similar debt situation that seems to be taking a depressingly loooooong time to pay off! I found this cheap Christmas craft and really have enjoyed it. I thought you might like it if you decorate your cubicle for Christmas! If the link won’t work google “3d paper snowflake”. I made mine with cardstock that I had laying around from an old project. I taped each “circle” and then stapled the 6 arms together to form the snowflake. I added a light coating of glittery spray paint and hung them with fishing line. So prerry! http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-3D-Paper-Snowflake

  3. Angella I cant believe that bad news, keep us posted!
