Hello friends. It's been a while, and I apologize for that. I'm afraid that I've been a bit blue lately and haven't had the urge to write.

Things are going fine around here...hubby's laid off so we have been working on our usual remodel project. This winter we've decided to do 2 projects: Lindsey's room, and a major cleaning and destashing of our kitchen cupboards!

Linds hasn't had a redo since she was a small girl, so her room was looking a little juvenile for a soon-to-be 16 yo! We just finished the painting --she chose a very bright lime green for the walls, which scared me a bit at first, but really looks good once it's up! lol I just finished making her some cute curtains...we picked out some white fabric with lime green, pink, aqua, and brown dots--so crisp and fun! We also bought her a new mattress set (which she badly needed) . Now we are currently adding the fun stuff--shelves and artwork, etc. I'll post some pics when we get it done.
Next up are the kitchen cupboards...it's gonna be a tough one to get motivated for , but HAS to be done! lol It's to the point where things will actually fall out onto you when you open a door!

I'm writing this from work so I don't have access to all my pictures, but here are a couple thing that I've listed lately that are also in my Flickr photostream.

Well, one last thing. I'd ask you all to keep on praying for my brother Paul. That damn cancer is really giving him a run. I just spoke with him last night and he is feeling pretty sick from the constant treatments, can't eat, and is losing a lot of weight. All prayers are appreciated.
