Wow, so much has happened since my last post! And a new look too

The first thing I need to do is make a heartfelt apology,
to all of you who have been faithful and read my every post,
and to those who have just started. Please forgive me for my
I do kind of have a good reason...
I got the crud that was going around here, and an earache.
Right as I was getting over that... I used DG oven cleaner,
like someone suggested for a paint stripper, and did it in my
basement, no windows open... and well, I forgot... I breathed!!
Well, not a good thing to do! I had to go to doc, and in the
meantime... I lost my voice, coughed ALOT! He gave me
steroids, and antibiotics. Well, for those of you that know me...
I got pneumonia... spent a couple weeks in bed. Finally to get
back on my feet. After a day or two, I was getting my
basement cleaned up... and for some reason... not sure
why, but my right foot started swelling! Went back to doc,
x-ray, cat scan, and specialist later, still don't know what
happened, but on crutches for a week. If not better then
they want an MRI. Do I sound like a walking time bomb???
Let me tell you I sure do feel like it!!!

Because of all of this, I don't have any new things to
show all of you sweet people. So I am posting
a picture of my mailbox.... I am working on it when
I can, between the weather, and health lol. So here
is the before...

will show you all the after, when I get done.
And I will show you MY CLEAN BASEMENT!!!
I got it done!! I built shelves for the wood,
made a work bench out of two doors,
Went through tots, boxes, and stuff. The kids'
stuff is ready for them to come get...
and I am loving my nice clean work space.
Hubby moved an old sewing cabinet down
there for me, and now it is my new paint station.
I can't wait to get back down the stairs and
take some pics to show you!!

I hope you all like the new face lift here too.
I will change the header pic again later. I
have some ideas about a new one. :D

This is my new saying....
House Rules
Always be honest. Count your blessing. Bear
each other's burden. Forgive and forget. Be
kind and tender0hearted. Comfort one another
Keep your promises. Be proud of each other. Be
true to each other. Treat each other like you treat
your friends. BUT most importantly--Love one
another deeply from your heart.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
but by the moments that take your breath away.
A sense of humor can help you tolerate the unpleasant,
cope with the unexpected & smile through the day.
There is one happiness in life to love & be loved!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed day!!

Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!

Debi, I'm glad you are on the mend. It sounds like you have really been though it. Your basement project sounds so wonderful, how I'd love a space like that. Good for you. Can't wait to see it and the mailbox. Take care. Love the new house rules. I really enjoy our blog.

Hi Debi,
Oh dear it sounds like you have had a terrible time. I am glad you are on the mend! That is scary! I hate getting pneumonia! I hate having to be so sick I need to stay in bed too. I am really sorry you had all that to deal with. Take care and get that foot better! no more spraying oven cleaner in the basement!
