{I’m back….}


Ok, i have had a nice little blog break and i am ready to get going again! My husband came home on Friday and i feel like i can now get back to what i love to do. I wore myself out – i was going a million miles an hour, i was wore out physically and mentally – but i have had some time to rejuvenate and with my hubs being home that has lifted a big weight off my shoulders :) I didn’t even go to a thrift store for about a month….what was wrong with me?!?! Think of the things that i missed out on…..sad, sad, sad….!!!
I don’t mind him being gone a few weeks here and there – actually i kind of like it (don’t tell him that!) – i can get a ton done, i don’t have to fix dinner (well, real dinner that it is, my kids still want to eat – whatever), my house can look a little “unruly” and i am cool with that – but this year being gone and then he comes home and leaves again for another 6-7 weeks, no…..not cool.
But its over and i will be back to posting again, i have a ton of small stuff i want to get done so you guys will be my motivation :)
**And, i will be doing a short little phone interview on Studio 5 tomorrow…scary!! They are going to show my laundry room redoWISH ME LUCK!!**
***And thanks everyone for all the sweet comments and emails – you guys are awesome! I still have so many emails to reply to so if you are waiting for a response its coming..i promise!***

    Okay, I don't know what Studio 5 is (though can I be forgiven cause I'm in Oz?) though that all sounds very exciting.

    Welcome Back, congrats on the Studio 5 deal and what did your husband say about all of your projects once he saw them in person??

    A break is always good and needed. I can't imagine being a single parent for weeks on end so kudos to you!! Looking forward to more of your inspiring projects.

    always a lurker, never a commenter. Happy to hear you are doing well and will be back! Good luck on Studio 5 even though you might be done by now.

    Will have to see the clip later this afternoon.

    Hey Sausha,
    I totally hear you about dinner when the hubby's gone, what's wrong with a little can of Spaghetti O's? : ) My husband is leaving for Algeria and I just gave birth to a baby boy 5 days ago and have an 18 mo. old and a 9 year old and as crazy as it may seem without a hubby, I feel like I can totally get much more projects done when he's gone. He says he's gonna come home and our house will be like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. He laughs at all my projects, but was totally oon board with the laundry room re do. He loves it! Thanks for you inspiration, you have inspired a whole gang of projects in my home. I admire your creativity and motivation. Keep it up girl, you're amazing!
