Long Absence

Hello everyone,

I have been absent from blogging for months now. I think the last post I wrote was either in January or February.  I haven’t felt like blogging, or writing at all in general. I have had way too much going on in my life besides blogging that it just kind of fell to the wayside.  I recently moved to a much bigger space with nearly twice the square footage of my last apartment. I am now living in a townhouse and it is the best possible thing I could have done for my anxiety right now. K and I were literally always next to one another in our last place. It was a tiny, one-bedroom square-of-an-apartment and it just wasn’t working for us. Chester did not seem happy either.  We made the sudden decision in January to move to our current location and I am so glad we did. It has two bedrooms, so not only do we have a huge master bedroom, but we have an office/craft/hobby room. The amount of storage here is amazing, so no more clutter lying around! Nothing stressed me out more than having no place to hide anything away. I hated having yarn sitting around or backpacks, or books, whatever it was. My life is finally clutter free!  This house is so bright as well. There isn’t a dark spot and that makes me really happy. Nothing better than sunshine for lifting one’s spirits. It makes me so happy to see Chester enjoying himself. He has so much room to run and just be a goofy cat.

 I have also been promoted again at work and have taken on about twice the workload that I had just in December. It’s been challenging, but very rewarding. I can honestly say I love going to work.

I have been teaching myself to cook (better) in new ways. I’ve made things that even I’m like “Wow, that was awesome!”

I’m teaching myself how to crochet and sew clothing for ball jointed dolls (BJDs), of which I have 7 at this time and one on the way. I absolutely love the beauty of them and am amazed that I’ve been able to keep a hobby this long. I’m very proud of myself.

 I’m embracing my DIY side. K and I took two weekends to redo our head and footboards and they went from outdated to gorgeously modern. I’m very proud of how it turned out.

I’m more active. Instead of coming home and just sitting on the couch and watching the TV, I feel a sense of purpose. Maybe it’s all the sunshine, but I never want to just sit when I get home. I want to end a long day’s work with more work I guess 🙂  There’s something really rewarding knowing that I’ve done all I can in a given day. You never know when the next day will be your last.

That’s what I’ve been up to the past couple of months. Hopefully I can devote more time to my blog and to sharing with all the beautiful people in the world who may stumble upon it.
