Decorating with Cubbies...I luvvv this so!

Good Morning, I know I have been badddd again at blogging, not because I don't care but because I have so much I want to say and share and just not enough time in the day to do it all, I am sure everyone out there can relate to this!! Anyways I want to share this pic of what my next hearts desire is, this beautiful cubbie storage, yes I realize it is from PB and that it is ridicouslessly overpriced, but do I care, absolutely not, I can dream can't I or I can send it to the husband and say I really like this can you build it for me. This is exactly what I did and he said, why yes I can....Yayyy for me!While I hope you are having a wonderful day, I will still be drooling over this cubbie!

The Start of Something New...

Good Morning Friends!!!! I know I seem really chipper this morning....well I am, I am so excited, not only because of the the weather starting to change, anyone that knows me knows my favorite time of year is just around the corner..so much has been going on this summer, oh where to start.
I finished my class I was taking in college with a great grade, our 22 year old daughter moved to Ohio, our grandbaby Eli turned 1 year old....school started, our 17 year old received her license and bought her first car all on her own....AND I have decided to start a sign shop on Etsy, this will be up and running shortly, all kinds of signs, my husband and I are both artist, he by profession and me just because I feel artistic!!!! Actually I have always been into the arts, I luv pottery, textiles, paint, wood, you name it...so I have decided to keep myself busy, such an understatement...I am so excited...for years my life has been wife, mother, everyone and everything else first and me last...now I will take time to really focus on the me, and I can say I have had it all, I luv being a wife, a mom and a friend, but I really luv ME to.....I am closer to 50 then I am to 40...now life has rewarded me with time for me, and my family is very willing to let me have this opportunity, and the husband is more than willing to do his part in helping me with my new business venture...I am so lucky...all this and no coffee yet!!!

Luv and Hugs Everyone, Have a Wonderful Day....Diana

Done...for now

Good morning everyone, I am done with college for the summer, I took my final exam on Tuesday, I was somewhat anxious but I was trying to be on the positive side, believing that I would get an A....and yes I must of believed really hard because I got and A+ on my final. So for the class I received an A, out of a possible 1300 pnts. for the class I received 1245!!! I know it is not nice to pat myself on the back, but I feel that this is quite an accomplishment for myself, afterall, it has been 30 some years since I have been in a formal classroom. Just want to share with everyone out there. I am hoping that all will have a wonderful day today and keep positive.

Hugs, Diana

Just a Rant.....

Good Morning Everyone,
So here I am once again falling behind in my blogging to be truthful I got caught up in this facebook thingy for awhile like most other people, but alas I have come back to my true love and that is blogging about lots of things and really nothing at all...
So here is my rant, I have just recently returned to college and I am loving it, my daughter had one of the books I needed for the class I am taking but not the other, so I went to the school bookstore and lo and behold I just about had a heartattack when I saw the price of the book, I thought they must of mismarked this baby, so I took it to the front and asked them if this was correct and they said yes, this book was a 150.00 for a paperback book.... are you getting where I am going with this, so I look at the book and think to myself it must have gold in it somewhere or silver in it, something is up with the book for it to be this costly..Still looking, and looking and looking...
Nope, nada, nothing just a plain simple paperback book with white pages and black letters in it that was it, I forgot it was NEW... I put it down and said this is crazy, I left the school bookstore quick and came home jumped on amazon and bought the same exact book for 8.95, and this included shipping to...did I mention that this was THE SAME EXACT BOOK!!!
I am sorry but to me this is crazy, crazy, one I don't get financial aid for school it comes straight out of my hubby's wallet into my wallet and into the school's wallet, what the heck schools not everyone is eligible for assistance, I think that this is a big rip off for the school bookstore to do this to students or anyone else for that matter, how the heck can anyone who has to pay for school and books out of their own pocketbook ever afford any type of education!!!! Ok I am done, I hope everyone has a wonderful day.... : )

Mind and Body..

The Secret of Health for both mind and body is not to mourn the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.
