Oh the maddness

Well, still in this construction hell.  We are currently remodeling our home.  Adding a fourth bedroom/office and enclosing our screened patio and turning it into an air conditioned dining room.  After that, they will be adding a swimming pool to the back yard.  The drywall dust has been driving my allergies insane and overall I am just over the mess in the house.  I want my house back together so bad.  We are now at the point of having to paint. That is probably my least favorite job but its a sign that its almost over.  Of course there will be all of the little things to do, but I can handle that.  Here are some photos of the process or progress.  Picture heavy!

Haha... See how well I did with that?

I was just reading someone else's blog and it occurred to me that I also have a blog that I started.  Of course, I have always known about it but funny how easy it is to say your going to do something and never get around to doing it.  My intentions are wonderful but man I just wish that I could fulfill them.  

Things are same ole same ole in my life... always struggling to find time to work on my glass and jewelry.  Always struggling to loose this damn weight and always saying that I am going to finish what I start.  Hmmmm.. see a pattern?

Well, since January I HAVE been working my little bootie off to loose this weight.  I joined a gym, took some nutrition classes and really stuck to it for the most part.  I even lost about 25 pounds.  Since then I have joined a new gym, found a new trainer to keep me motivated and am still struggling to eat the right foods and stay within my calories.  Overall, I am actually pretty darn proud of myself!

I may actually finish something that I start with the weight loss.  You know, its really not just about the weight loss though.  It's all about over all health and its something that in my life I have never really paid that much attention to.  Now that I am coming up on my middle ages I need to stay focused and try to make my body my temple.  I only have it for so much longer and quite honestly, I really want it to last as long as it can.  

Now I just need to see if I can find someway to finish all the other many things that I start!

Hmmmm... this seems to be my middle name as of late.  I have a show in Tampa this coming weekend and I keep telling myself that I am going to not only get on the torch to make some new items to present and sell, but that I am also going to get organized and get everything ready to take so I do not have to do it all in the last minute.  YEAH RIGHT!  How do I break this horrible habit?
Well, guess I will TRY and get out to the studio and get my act together.  Lets see how this works out!

So I got sucked in

Everyone keeps telling me that blogging is a great way to get your name out there and "known".  That its a great way to increase your sales but also can be a rewarding way to just show your art.  Well, here goes... I am going to take the plunge and do it.
I can not guarantee how often I can post, but I am going to really make an effort to try and do it as much as I can.  My problem is that I am not a writer.  I have tried to journal so many times and what I am trying to put down on paper just doesn't come out the way that I really want it to.  I have no problems speaking what I feel, I just can not put it down on paper.  Also, my grammar SUCKS!  Thank goodness for spell check because my spelling sucks too!
Well, this will either work or it won't.  I hope it works!
