I haven't been feeling well lately. I think I've had the flu. I probably still have it but I'm feeling better a little bit at a time. It sucks, but I'll live. I haven't been posting any thing new, all my recent posts have been drafts that I had saved back for an occasion just like getting sick. I hate being sick- but it doesn't happen often.
I've been trying to rehabilitate our bathroom... but it doesn't seem to be working too well. I can't knock down any walls or afford to change the tub sink or toilet (which are blue by the way) so there's not a lot I really can do. All I know is that my saving efforts are failing and I feel like it's time to just put the whole thing out of it's misery. Not to mention I've seen closets bigger than this bathroom! Seriously, we have a black rug for the toilet and a squarish one for the floor, they don't both fit without overlapping. I painted the ugly plastic and MDF vanity (just imagine that...) black. I obviously can't sand and stain and I don't like brown paint. I don 't like anything that pretends to be wood ha ha. I also managed to take out the shower door rails. The previous renters had taken out the shower doors but the rails they had been on were still there... the doors had frosted swans on them so I'm so glad they're gone). Let me just say that if you have shower doors you should take them out. I'll be sure to post pictures later when I'm closer to finishing this business. The side bars came out easily, with no damage or anything, the bottom bar that the door sat on was a little harder but when I got it up I was shocked. It was revolting how much nasty stuff was under these shower doors. It's not like I don't clean them- they looked fine from the outside- and they seemed well caulked. Somehow though, water had gotten trapped beneath them (the caulk was helping hold it in too!?) and had all kinds of nastiness. Yes, I'll be posting pictures of that too! I'll never have shower doors again.
I'm also excited about spring coming up. I can't wait to get my garden beds made. Since this is a new place I'm not sure what I'm going to make them out of either. Normally when I plant things I either use planters or just straight in the ground. I've never done raised beds but I'm really considering one this year for the veggies so I can incorporate my beautiful compost easily.
I'm determined that this year is going to be a good year. I've been thinking about making a lot of changes in my life recently. There's going to be another post on that later. It's not just a New Years resolution kind of thing or a birthday kind of thing (was the 14th). I just am so tired of how my life has been going. There are a lot of things that really need to change for me to get what I want done. I'm just sick of it. I'm not angry, I'm just tired. I guess that's the only way to put it. I'll have to do some more thinking first on what I want to change. I don't like saying I'm going to do something and not do it. So, when I've decided what needs to change I'll let everyone else know. Also, keep checking back for a big secret announcement soon. OH! Also, Monday (tomorrow) I'll finally find out whether or not I got the management type position for the company I work for! I'm so excited. I hope I get it but you never know, a lot of people applied.
