Redecorating

We're at it again. It usually starts with just one piece of item like a bedding or a pillow case then it becomes a total make-over of the whole bedroom. It's not me surprisingly, but the other half. I'm the one that tries to put the brakes but when he makes up his mind then there's little I can do about it.

It started with the old, okay, worn out, quilt on our bed. I was the one that suggested we should probably look for a replacement already. So off we went shopping in all the nearby stores. We couldn't find the one we both like which should of course match the rest of the bedroom but we still went for it. At first we picked a quilt only. We brought it home but we didn't quite like how it goes with the rest of the room. Right there and then we, I meant he, suggested [read: decided] that we should probably think about changing the whole bedding and not just the quilt. I reluctantly agreed. It's not a big of a deal anyway. We went back to the store to return the quilt and started looking for a bedding set. We couldn't find any to our liking in any of the stores so we decided to look at home and patio décor center online. After a lot of back and forth searches, we MAY have found the one. We may have found it but still haven't ordered anything yet. Any guesses why? Well, because now someone wants to look at some bathroom stuff for the master bathroom. This is because the old bathroom décor was kind of matching with the bedroom décor because we bought them all at the same time a few years ago. This time it's up to me to decide whether I would want to do that or not. So here I am scratching my head wondering: What did I get myself into? Decisions, decisions....

Getting Back into the Groove

I've been meaning to blog for a couple of weeks now but I just didn't know how to start. Actually, I still don't know what to write. But I have to start somewhere or this site will stay dormant.

So what have I been up to lately? Not much actually. We've been planning and planning and planning 'something' but that's all there is to it. Right now it's all in limbo so to speak. If our original plan pushed through, it would have been done by now...well, maybe not. We'd be in the midst of it actually. But it's fine. It'll happen sooner or later. We just have to keep on pushing until we get it right, eh?

I'm doing well considering what happened with a dear friend. I'm still not used to 'not having' her around. I still 'visit' her account regularly just like when she was still around. The only difference now is I can no longer leave her short messages on her page just to keep in touch. I still have sleepless nights every now and then but it's getting better, I think. When it gets tough I contact a mutual friend so we can get sad together. We kind of made it a pact that we'll get through this together. That's what we've been doing.

One thing that helps me get through a tough day is my daily 'date' with my recumbent bike. Even on those days when I feel like not moving a muscle, I force myself to get up and get on it. Here's a proof of one of those days.....


Yep, that's me in my pj bottoms biking away [in place]. I was too lazy to change into my bike shorts/pants that I just put on my socks and sneakers [and changed my top because it can get hot with a fleece top on] and biked away.

The husby is very busy at work. Well, busy enough that he doesn't get stressed out. He's been in business for almost 10 years and it can get really stressful. That can go both ways...when they have a lot of work and the lack thereof. I guess that's a given when you run a small business. But he still likes what he's doing so it's all good. At least he hasn't worked on the weekend for months now. He gets to relax and unwind at least 2 days a week. Hopefully it continues this way for a long period of time.

The little one is busy [still] with her school work. She's starting to mature now. Deep in thought sometimes. Should I be worried? I don't think so. She still likes to be babied. She also likes to talk to me and dad for the most part. She has loads of questions. Most of the time I can answer them, some I have to research...haha. All in all, she's been great.

I guess that sums up my 'report'. Hopefully I can continue writing here regularly again. Tata for now....

Overhauled!

That's what happened with this blog. It seems the host for the personalized blog template I used to have expired. I checked one day and ...
