A Fresh Start
Spring isn't quite here yet, but I'm still getting ready for a fresh start. I've found myself feeling blue the past couple days - waiting for the light, warmth and airiness of spring is hard.
I'm taking Beezus and we're going to a Lenten service at church tonight to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation (or the Sacrament of Confession for some of you old skool Catholics).
I've been working with interior designers and personal organizers to get our house in shape. Yes, feel free to judge but YOU try moving across country a week before school starts and see how far you get on your own. Most delightful of all is that although Mr. Quimby may grumble at the cost he is delighted with the results.
I'm even going to re-arrange my office furniture. I desperately tried to find new office space, but never found the thing that was quite right at the right cost. I'll be working more hours preparing for a big certification exam I'm going to take in December, so a fresh look in the office will be nice. I'll be bringing in an extra easy chair and rug from home, and looking for a petite little table on craigslist to spruce it up.
I also anticipate having a little more time for blog writing here and maybe even resurrecting the blog that I used to keep of and for the girls that was more of a digital scrapbook.
While we don't see any signs of Spring here in Colorado (and I know my dear friends back East don't see any either) I know it's coming. All I have to do is put one foot in front of the other and do the next right thing to get there.
