Since I've been away...

I have been taking a few days off and just enjoying my family.  On Monday, we were all just exhausted for some reason and decided to take a "personal day".  :)  My hubby and my two sons watched movies together and then later my sons and I played our online game, "Guild Wars".  I know I've told this story before, but it really is worth repeating.  About a year and a half ago my youngest son asked me to get the game and play with him and my other son. They had been playing about a year themselves with another one of their friends.  I was so touched and, frankly, amazed that my children would want their mother to play with them! I decided to give it a try even though I didn't think I'd like it and am I ever glad I did! It's such a fun game and it's something my sons and I do together even now. Anyway, we also made homemade pizza that day and munched on and off all day and just had a fun day.  We all really needed it and it was so nice to be able to do it!

Tuesday, I felt good enough that I did some cleaning in my bedroom.  It's been just a disaster area since I hurt my back last October. I've practically lived full time in my bedroom and it showed! I went through some of my books and got them put in a box to trade in and was able to get the rest of my books that were stacked on the floor in front of my bookshelf on the shelves! That was so nice.  I also went through magazines and got rid of the ones I had read. I donate my magazines to our local library so they can sell them and make some money for the library.  I also changed the table that is next to my chair that I not only sit in, but sleep in.  I needed something bigger that I could keep my pills on, my book, and other stuff.  I'm actually using an old typewriter stand that is on wheels and covered it with one of my old table clothes from the 40's.  It's just wonderful.  Now, lest you think I'm crazy for doing all this with my back, let me assure you that I had help.  I have also learned to sit on my desk chair and use it when I need to pick up things or work on things.  It really does save the back! Anyway, I still have more to do in my room, but just getting that much done was such a lift to my spirits!

Wednesday I did some paperwork for my hubby from  my recliner and rested from doing all that work on Tuesday.  I have to be very careful not to over-do ...which is very hard for me.  I've always over-done!

Today I've been working on putting new things in my Etsy shop.  Etsy has been having some issues loading so I don't have everything in there yet, but here's a tiny preview of things you'll be able to find. 

Be sure and come by my Etsy Shop and check things out! 

God bless you - Julie

  1. I'm glad to hear you're feeling better!
    It feels so good just to get some things actually accomplished after one has been laid up for awhile.
    Grace and I cut out a little schoolwork so we could take advantage of the absolutely gorgeous day today. It was 73 degrees. Amazing for a Colo. January! We got out and I walked while she rode her bike (in her shorts I might add!). We ended up at the park. We were able to stay out even after 5 this evening enjoying the fresh air.
    It's supposed to be nice tomorrow too and then get cold again on Sunday, so we're going to take advantage of it!
    Happy weekend to ya!
