A blank slate…

I wish I had something profound to write about but seriously, my mind is void of really anything meaningful or well, just about anything for that matter.  Do you ever have a day like that?  Ok, maybe a week or two like that?  I’m trying to take life slow and breathe slowly, take everything in, think before reacting, just trying to find more simplicity in my life.  But I have to tell ya, it’s kind of exhausting to be so slow.  I’m sure you can relate.  When you are running on mach 5 and super speed, it’s almost hard to be tired because you dont’ even have time to think about sleep or rest.  But when you rest more, you actually get more tired.  And…our wonderful, gray skies, 30′ temperatures and brisk breezes surely don’t help me to motivate.

Here’s what I did do today however…I rearranged my furniture in my family room.  I keep doing these home parties and walk into these homes that are wonderfully decorated.  It makes me wish I had that kind of eye for decorating.  We were given a huge amount of family pieces when we were married.  I have no clue how to put them all together.  I cut out photos from one of my favorite magazines, Country Home or Country Living, all the time and try to copy what they do.  I just need a “home decorating for idiots” handbook I think.

Last week, the girls and I went to see High School Musical 3 and then I bought the soundtrack for my ipod…for them, of course.  Although, I find myself singing it all day long.  Completely corny but I have to admit, I like it, a lot. 

Got a few things done yesterday including this cute little Ava bag.  Love the colors that were chosen by Mary – she hosted a party last night.  (Thanks Mary!)  I have a few other things and when I get somewhere with REAL internet connection (yes, I’m doing this from my dial up connection! ahhhh!!!) I’ll load those photos.

Make it a great week everybody!
