Neglectful Me

Hello again to my poor neglected site. I haven't exactly forgotten that you exist, it's just that, well, I have had other things going on in my life. Funny how the title of my blog has a way of making that happen.

I received an email reminding me of my site, that I had been missed. Ooops. I am truly sorry if I have left anyone out due to Migraine, nausea, vertigo, aura, etc. But please, don't let that bother you; I wouldn't allow the monster to completely take over my life without attempting to live.

You see, I have attended a Tea Party. I am living!

Oh, and I also went to the Country, Wine country. As you can see by this incredibly colorful tray, we made sure we ate well.

The kids and I colored eggs;

We also attended a live Easter Drama. So you can see, we have been busy. And all while I have been migraining. Yes, I AM amazing. I know. It's not easy being me.

How beautiful are these kids of mine! Oh, pray for me, Cinderisa has started - UGH - Driver's Ed. Four days per week. Yes, I am busy. (and I get emailed regarding the neglect of my site) the nerve!!!

Praying you are migraine-free

Day Three

Under the spell of the monster again, barely able to either walk or wake. Tired. Sick and tired. Wanting to feel well. Lights flashing, room spinning, how it comes so fast and furious, out of nowhere. If only the weather would figure out what it would do; maybe I can feel well.

For now, back to bed.

It's that time..........

It's that wonderful time of the year; where folks everywhere get Spring fever and start hauling JUNK to the side of the road. Call me crazy, but nothing excites me more than piles of good junk!

Oh the things you can do - well rather, I do with junk! Frank has already warned me that he will not participate this year in picking up the goods. I have already started scanning the roadsides for good pieces of wood, furniture and odds and ends. I'm waiting for the neighborhood junk haul weekend, my absolute favorite.

These are the items I picked up last year - IN THE GARBAGE! YES, GARBAGE.
I have finished the desk and put it in Nicholas' room, but haven't done a pic of it. What is WRONG with me?? Oh, and that ugly plain cupboard up there, it's in my dining room. I loved working on that.

Found these shutters in my shed. They must have been on the house at some time before we owned the house. I ended up painting personalized signs for some family members. This was for my Mom.

Oh, I do love me a junkin bargain! Be sure to visit auctiongirl for more junk bargains.
