Going home tomorrow!

It has been a long week, I am looking forward to going home tomorrow. My lovely daughter will be there waiting for me! We are spending the weekend together and going down to the Ann Arbor Art Fair. When I lived IN Ann Arbor, I dreaded the week of the art fair! Now, I will head to the mall and take the shuttle, no wasting time trying to find parking or driving around that insane town!

I am in West Branch and the office has mold in it and the hotel has the most uncomfortable beds. I end up so tired and get sciatica pain by the end of the week. I hope the drive home won't be too bad. I will have to stop and stretch. that was a negative post....where is your lifting positive thought for the day?

How about this......................................

Take care of the vessel that your soul resides in and feed your soul!

Triple Creek

My hometown of Three Rivers, which we loving call Triple Creek is where I am headed today. 25 years ago my last child was born so I am heading over to have lunch with him. 5 days after he was born, my brother Gary married his wife Dianne and today they are celebrating their 25th anniversary.  It will be a fun day seeing family. I do need time at home, however it is more important that I honor these milestones in the lives of people that I love.

Back to the Grind

Just finished a little vacation. Getting Hubby through his second hand surgery in 3 weeks. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked to, however I only will be working 2 days before the weekend arrives again! If I didn't need to sleep, I think I could accomplish so much!

Your inspirational thought for today.

Breathe. Just breathe. Be present with every single moment, because every single moment of your life counts, no matter how difficult it may seem, it is teaching you something.

I love this photo and in particular what the words say. There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way! >3 Happiness is the way............and that isn't to say that we need to be "Happy" with insincerity. It really is about living with sincerity, gratefulness, JOY in life.

Long Awaited Update

I should update you! It became official on May 1, 2012, we are home owners! We have had a "welcome to being a homeowner" experience very quickly after closing. Things that really were supposed to have to have been taken care of prior to closing, were not taken care of as they should have been, due to a few reasons. The video shows you a peek into what we uncovered. We put a bandaid on it and are in a holding pattern. Not sure what to do next. We also have major concerns about the electrical work that was completed in our home. So we do have a few worries about ants eating our house from under us, or our house burning down.....not such a great feeling.  The sellers also dug out 15 large/tall evergreens that ran along our property line, leaving 15 large holes and totally ruined the grading and the view to the entrance of our home! For all of my glass friends, the area in the garage that was invaded by ants is supposed to be my glass studio, that is certainly on hold until we can afford the finsihing of this disaster! However, I have hope that  we will find solutions and all will be well.

Also since I last wrote to you my father and I celebrated our 3rd year since one of my kidneys was given to him so that he could be with me a little while longer. 3 years later and he is doing very well as far as his kidney is concerned, his heart is another issue. We recently discovered that he needs a new valve and are waiting to find out if that can be accomplished. He is a vibrant man, not your typical 73 year old for certain!

Lastly, we celebrated our 2nd year anniversary yesterday. Our neighbors took us on a boat ride up the river to the chain of lakes. The view was incredible!
