Well as you can see I have not made it here in forever. I have also taken down my files. Rapid share deleted the majority of them and I didn't want to have to go through and figure out what was on rapid share and what was on mediafire. So this was the easiest way. We are quickly moving into winter here in southern IL. Supposed to flurry tonight but not stick. I have a feeling this is going to be a bad winter. Today has been kind of laid back. Over the past 2 days I have been able to release a lot of my past to my mom and I feel like I have lost 20lbs of weight off my shoulders. Today I made ham, brown beans, fried tators and cornbread for dinner. It tasted so good! The kids have been really good today. The boys went out trying to hunt. My dad showed them his guns on Thanksgiving and that's all I have heard about since then! Glad they were excited and felt really special spending time with him. I have to say I am glad tomorrow is Monday. back to normal. Rea goes back to preschool and the boys and I pick up homeschooling again tomorrow. We found a community club for the boys and they love it! Always a good feeling to see your kids get excited about something positive. I have been giving thought to some remodeling/decorating. My home was built in the 50's. I would like to convert the house back to that time period but in fun ways. I want to turn my kitchen into a 1950's diner. There are a few examples I found that I just love. oddly my husband likes them too! SCORE here is one we both really like.
I found this somewhere on the net wish i could remember where to give credit. Of course it wont be exact. I have found some other pictures and I would like to mix and match the ideas. I would love to find a restaurant booth and cover it and use it for a kitchen table. I would be THRILLED if i could find one of those kitchen tables with the metal rims and chairs like in the picture above. When the time comes I will for sure be looking for either. I am not sure if I will be able to do many files anymore. Life is just so hectic. Sometimes its hard to slow down and when i do I just want to vege. My craft room did get done but honestly I have not been down there crafting in a while. My husband has started making candles and soap so the room is being used ;o) About the only other exciting things here in life is we are waiting on the birth of our grandson. Any day now. I tell him to get out of there all the time. You can already tell hes going to be a stubborn male! Well everyone I do hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and that you all have a great time preparing for the Lords birth on Christmas.

So sorry I have not blogged in forever. Ever just been in a life slump? I was ready for warmer weather but this is just as bad as winter. Still can not get outside. I am not much of a outside person anyhow but it would be nice to go out when i get in the mood. I just dont know whats going on or why I am even writing it all down here. I have felt kind of trapped lately. I am sure other moms out there can relate. I feel I have lost myself and often find the question who am I? I am Pauls wife and the kids mother. But who AM I? I really dont know anymore. I have gotten to the point I dont even want to be around anyone. I know most are thinking depression but i really dont think so. I just feel a need to have a place of myown to go to let loose and no one else in my area. I have a unfinished basement. It honestly is a tornado area where everything is thrown. I want a pretty girly creative space. Where if i want to read a book i can, watch tv i can, listen to music i can or creat what ever i want i can. As much as i love them I want a area for me! I dont want to share this space! My wonderful son Alexander says mom I understand you need this. This 11 year old boy i feel gets me more then anyone! For 2 days now he has been down there cleaning things out, chipping paint and last night went online with me to find room ideas. He tells me mama dont worry I will take care of this and give you what you want. I tell ya he keeps me strong! God has blessed me so much. While going through this slump I have even considered packing everyone up with in the next year and a half and moving from IL to TX. I dont see it happening but wouldn't it be nice sometimes to just walk away from everything? A family member recently had surgery and I went into walgreens to find a book. The man working there asked me if i was looking for anything perticular. Nope just something to keep me busy. He suggested the book "The Walk" by Richard Paul Evens. I know this man who made the suggestion used to be a preacher and once he told me abit about the book it felt ironic and i felt God was talking to me. If you have not read this and are looking for a good read i suggest it ;o) So for now and until I can get back into a creative spirit I hang in here waiting for myspecial space made for me by my special boy. Thanks for reading my ramblings!
