Never a dull moment

Hi all...I know it has been awhile since I have posted and I hope this post finds all well in the blogging world. To bring you up-to-date (in a hurry) all is well here. It was kind of a lonely, but busy, Christmas this year because none of our children were home but they promise to be here next year. My son and oldest daughter are both serving in the U.S. Air Force and were unable to get leave to come home. My son has only been in the Air Force since last year and is stationed in Montana since July and did not have enough time in. My oldest daughter has been in the Air Force for 25 years and is currently stationed in Washington D.C. and did not put her request in on time. She was alittle upset about spending Christmas alone so our middle daughter ask if I would be upset if she flew up to be with her...well I told her I was upset but that her Dad and I would be fine and I did not want my oldest alone. I missed them but my hubby and I went out on actual dates Christmas weekend and spent time with my family on Christmas Eve and his family on Christmas Day so we were very busy!

The second thing that is going on is since I painted those few pieces of furniture I have become very interested in expanding my techniques! Must be the artist in me...I was going to get an art degree many years ago but got the MRS degree instead! So...I took some classes for decorative painting/faux finishes at a studio in Sugarland and I am hooked. With that, I have started another blog (to not fill this one up) for folks who might have an interest in this type of furniture. So if you get a chance, hop over to my other blog and give it a quick look if you have time. I hope you become a follower on that blog also.

Well...that's all for now.

Sounds like you and your husband created a nice Christmas without your kids.

I'm heading toward your other blog. I was just talking about painting that old credenza with my hubby. I also have four chairs to paint. I did go as far as buying spray paint for both the primer and the top coat. I really can't wait to see the end result... but I'm thinking it will be a while.

Glad to have you 'back'!!

Oh gosh, Christmas gets harder as the kids get older, sigh. The furniture project though, sounds like just the cure.

It's great that you took classes, and are expanding your art! Good way to get inspired. I'm off to check out the new blog.

Yes Leigh it is getting harder...guess I will have to get over my fear of flying and go visit them!
Thanks Aurora...I am having fun.
