Currently...sitting...watching...and waiting...


- I'm on my second cup of coffee of the morning.
- My mind is a storm of emotions circling around Boston and all the horrific events unfolding there.
- I cannot for the life of me fathom why people choose to hurt another person. I get the whole mental illness side of that coin flip...but be a coward and not use words or conversation but instead simple destruction. I can't grasp it.
- I have a long list of things to do sitting beside me and honestly, I can't bring myself to start with one.
- I'm kinda glued to what is unfolding in Boston. I hate this aspect of the media.  Spiting out wrong information, making assumptions and just plain outright dirty journalism  But I do part take in this dance and watch on.  Just like any other American...I want to see justice and I want to see the completion of this heinous crime come to an end.
- Thinking about what to post and drawing a blank. How can I honestly and happily talk about all my craft projects, my vacation plans or trivial life happenings when in true actuality my mind is with Boston...glued to the tube waiting and watching for some sort of peace.

Sending my love and prayers to Boston right now!

To Tell the Truth....

I'm unforgettably a brutally honest person. I won't hurt your feeling, but I will tell you your ass looks fat in those jeans.  I'd don't beat around the bush.  One thing I cannot and will not tolerate is a liar.  I only surround myself with people I can trust and tell me the truth. Even if it hurts.  Why live in lies, when the world knows the truth is beyond me. Daily rant for the day.

To tell the are a few truths for me today:

- I've gained weight. I hate it. I kinda denied it for the longest time and only wore yoga pants. You know the drill ladies. But, I finally admitted it and went to my doctor for help. It's my stupid thyroid or PCOS. I went to the doctor yesterday and I was given Metformin.  I'm terrified of medicine. But, I'll give it a whirl.  I'm tired of having no energy, and my hormones going insane lately.

- My house is mess. A mess as in I would not be surprised if an episode of cops were filmed here last night. Somewhere between a meth house or a frat house. I need to clean, but somehow I have no desire to : (

- My life. It's pretty awesome and chaotic right now. Honestly, when is it not?

- I plan on going back to school for graphic design. I'm terrified of this.  The actual part of sitting in a class, doing homework while trying to balance home life and kids blows my mind.  But I want, need and desire to. Now to figure out when.

- I have a long list of things I want done to this house and asap. But I also have a low energy level to make this list actually happen. Hummm...quite the conundrum.

- I have this kickass idea for a coffee table book.  Again, finding said energy for this task is something I don't have.

-  I really like inspirational quotes. Yes, I'm one of those kooks who enjoys a positive affirmation in the morning.

Ok, off to fix lunch, clean a house that is ruled by boys and possibly throw a quick shopping trip into my day.  Wishing everyone an honest and wonderful day!

I've lost the love...

For blogging. I work daily on 5-8 clients facebook accounts and pinterest accounts. Forming words and putting them onto a computer doesn't seem very exciting to me anymore. I have started so many blog entries only to never finish them.  They are sitting in the abyss of unfinished projects.  Since, I've been MIA for a second let me update on useless information...

- Spen started and finished his comic book art classes. He liked them...but now he's leaning toward skateboard lessons.***Slaps forehead*** I thought I could prolong this phase for a bit longer. I'm not looking forward to ER trips with broken bones :(  Boys and their need to be cool...psshhhh.

- Cedric will soon start wee-soccer. Excited about this adventure. I was Spencer's coach for his team, and I thought about doing this for Cedric. But different boys and different needs. Ceddy is way more active, and I highly suspect I will have to dedicate a lot of attention on keeping him merely on the field. He marches to the beat of his own drum ; )

- The hubs and I....Things are good. Eric is hard at work for the Retro Gaming Expo this weekend and I've been doing a lot of graphic design work for my job lately.  I'm leaning towards going back to school for this.  I talked with a friend who is a graphic designer and he said I'm not charging enough for my work. This I know, but I have no degree which kinda voids a lot of the pay factoring. The hubs supports me in going back. Now it just becomes a question of when.

We have been busy just living life and enjoying the boys lately.  I can't wait for warmer weather!!! I need sunshine and a bike ride!!!

After this week I am super excited to start a new house project!!! My new kitchen floors!!!  I have to go order the supplies this week.  I can't wait!!!

I did fill the ugly void wall with pretty mirrors from Target in my dining room. Once that room is complete I will update with photos.  Until then, here is a teaser:

I also have an art project I'm throwing around in my old brain for spring.  Perhaps, a coffee table book...hummmm....

Ok, sending everyone a hug and a wish for a wonderful week ahead. Off to make coffee.  Orange juice doesn't cut it for me ; )
