Spring tweaking

Hi Blogbuds,
First, I wanted to just make a quick comment and thank you to Leslie over at She explained why it is that sometimes we just can't get back to the very nice people who are kind enough to leave a comment on a blog posting. I do feel pretty awful when I can't do that myself. Understand that I work like 12 hours a day and between a demanding job and my ADLs (activities of daily living (i.e. shopping, laundry, mom-care, etc etc etc) I don't always have an opportunity to get back to you kind bloggers. I do read your posts nearly every day, even if I don't leave a comment. So please don't be angry! :>)
I am just sick about the Natasha Richardson news. What a terrible thing to happen, and I can't imagine what happend in that fall that would have led to this tragedy. The news made it sound as if she had a light fall, but something happened that caused a brain bleed. Terrible. Makes you think, and reprioritize -- how fragile our lives really are. What a wake-up call to let the dumb stuff just go and be thankful for what we do have.
I've started my spring cleaning and made some minor adjustments. I took the shelf from the bathroom and moved it to the dining room.
Took the black shelf and moved it to the living room...
And that's as far as I got!! I should be able to get to more next weekend. Just so busy that I don't feel like doing stuff after dinner. But -- I FINALLY bought a new vacuum -- Wally's had a great sale and I picked it up for a steal. Finally! Got a bit tiring shlepping the one from my mom's back and forth, so out goes the old one in the trash bin. They don't seem to last as long as they used to!
I do have some new ideas, so stay tuned!

I got my CS yesterday, an what a beautiful layout they did for Karen at Really gorgeous, and it was so nice to see her entire home and how fabulous she and Doug have made it!! Congrats, Karen!! Thanks for the eye candy! It is a really good issue all the way around. I'm going thru it nice and s-l-o-w-l-y so I can savor it!

Well, I must get my tushy in gear -- I have calls to make, so I must dash! Hope everyone has a great day -- maybe I'll get lucky when I pass GW in my way to my first client. (fingers crossed.) I have found nothing at all for the last few weeks, which makes me VERY SAD!!! LOL. Till next time!!


  1. Terry~I was so sad to hear of Natasha too! I loved her in the movie "Parent Trap".
    Gee, I don't even know how you find time to blog with your busy schedule...You are a wonder woman...but don't forget to comment on my posts! Or else I will OD on DDP...Oh, I already do that, don't I?! LOL
    Here is hoping that you find some fantastic goodies today!

  2. I always enjoy your blog, it is so refreshing.
    At one time I had a injury that made my brain bleed and the Dr.s told my family I would not make it. But, I guess it just wasn't my time. I am sorry for that girls family.

  3. Terry,
    Like the changes that you have made with your shelves. I know what you mean about being busy & I have cut down on my computer time as well. I'm sure as warmer weather gets here we will all be outside a little more & won't get to post & comment as much, but like you said we have to prioritize. Good luck at the TS.

  4. I feel the same way - I just can comment on all my favs so I try to spread it around!

    Love your tweaking and I jealous you got your C already. Mine is always lateer than everyone else. I can't wait to see Karen's home!!

  5. Hi Terry!
    Love when you post but no pressure:) Great job on the shelves and no, sweepers don't last long anymore!
    Have a great evening and tomorrow I'm going to JoAnn's to see if CS is in:)


Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to visit my blog and leave a comment. I love hearing from you!
