Not much to say...

I have had absolutely nothing to talk about lately. I have been sick for 3 weeks now and think I'm finally starting to get over it. It is no fun feeling like you are coughing up a lung every time you cough.

I'm still working on my Medical Transcription course and I'm almost to the end. Thank goodness! I am so past ready to be done with this course. Still doing my martial arts classes and my tai chi class. I've enjoyed my tai chi class very much. This Sword Form is very similar to the one we are doing in class. I am finding this to be a very relaxing activity. We will be doing our test on this form in a couple of weeks and then we will start a new form.

Doing lots of reading lately and my house really shows it too. Want to see what I've been reading you can it out here: Goodreads. I've read 20 books already this year. I'm currently reading Stroke of Midnight. I started reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series last year and know I have to finish the series. Unfortunately that is the way by brain works when it comes to a book series. Start at the first one and read through to the last one available.


  1. Happy to hear that your feeling somewhat better... it stinks being sick and sickness with the cough is horrible.

    I'll have to check out your books at Goodreads, I'm always looking for new books that might interest me. BTW thanks for adding me to your friends list, I had no idea that you were there. ;)

  2. Poor you, glad you are a little better, enjoy your books!
    Have a great day! Debx

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Symptoms of Menopause:

Life On An Even Keel...

On An Even Keel is an idiom that means - calm and not likely to change suddenly, balanced. This is how I want my life to be. It use to be this way 15 years ago and I'm not sure exactly what happened to change that position. Everything about my life feels completely out of balance & so crazy and I cannot take it any more! Some way, some how we have got to turn things back around and get on an even keel again!!! 

My plan for 2011 is to find that balanced and calm life again. I am working on cleaning out and getting rid of stuff. Only keeping what means something to us. I want to get started working on decorating our house and turning it into a HOME and not just a house. And I want to get our finances in a better place. As always I am open to any suggestions anyone may have to assist in this change.
