I know everyone says it, and it’s so cliche, but it’s so hard to believe January is just about done! I also am recently the parent of a teenager. That one just makes my head hurt.
I have been making plans to change up my blog, and this is actually a “new” one. I have run into a small glitch, which the hosts of homeschooljournal.net (my uncle and aunt) are going to guide me through I’m sure. For them, it’s likely just flicking a switch (sort of), and for me it induces all sorts of anxiety and angst. I’m so glad there are all sorts of people in this world.
I’ve finally started making some changes to our house. We’ve been here over a year and a half, and I’ve been stuck. Haven’t felt like it was really mine to do with as I pleased, as I’ve always known this house as my in-laws’. Today, my kitchen cupboards were primed, and they will be painted tomorrow with Benjamin Moore’s “cloud white”. The walls are sitting pretty in a beautiful shade of cheery yellow, and I’m excited that we’ll soon be getting some fresh counters and a new apron-front sink. New hardware, some better lighting, and a pretty faucet, and I think I just may fall in love with my kitchen, bless it’s tiny little depression-era heart. I haven’t “hated” it per se, but I’ve been mostly annoyed with it since moving here. I think the changes we’re making are going to improve my mood when I’m in it immensely, not to mention the fact that I have found some ways to improve storage, which is my biggest peeve overall.
It’s so nice to have a fun project like this to pull me through this part of the winter. It’s just what I needed!
