The high for today is going to be 65 and the sun is shining. I sat out on the balcony with Liqueur today for about 15 minutes and soaked up the glorious sunshine. I should be getting ready for work, but I feel so good I wanted to share it with you all.
I have been very neglectful here and I apologize for that. Again. I realized that my spare time is better spent with SO and the inevitable housework that I've been neglecting. I truly try to read a few blogs each day and will be devoting more time to reading and writing within the next month. There are a couple of reasons for that.
I will be getting laid off from my job in mid-April. This is not a surprise and frankly, I'm glad to see it end. I won't be job hunting any time soon since my expenses now are minimal...the up-side to having a "personal" relationship with my landlord ;-) I have enough money to get by without touching my savings until at least mid-summer when I can open a new unemployment claim. Car payment, car and life insurance and cell phones for the kids and me pretty much covers my debt. (I pay for their expenses during the school year; they cover their own during the summer.) I paid off my Kohl's charge with some of my tax refund. (Yea!) So, I'm sitting pretty good. I do the grocery shopping and that is all SO will allow me to contribute. No complaints here.
So that's a reason I'll have more time for blogging and blogs in general. That, plus SO going to China AGAIN will leave me to wallow in my pain and thus share will all y'all. Aren't you thrilled??!!
I do have many projects here that I want to tackle once I'm done working. Painting of pretty much the whole downstairs including the kitchen cabinets.
Pretty ugly, huh? Seriously, look at the glare from the window reflecting on the cabinet door. EW! They are a shiny mauve and the flowered wallpaper has to go too. I haven't decided what I want yet, but there is much sanding and scraping to be done before I have to decide. Someday, we will get new cabinets, but for now, I'm looking forward to tackling these bad boys myself.
So the bottom line is this: Look out, 'cause Hazel is gonna be turned loose on April 18th....mark your calendars!
