How do you start that first sentence? What do you want to say, really? It’s been some time since I’ve done any writing, personal or other wise. SO… guess I’d better get back at it.

Where have I been? Right here….really!! Just kinda fogged out. Things have improved so much over the years but I still have tough periods with my depression. OKAY! Stop what you’re thinking! (if your asking ,”What is she depressed about?”) You obviously aren’t aware of what clinical depression is and how it affects it’s victims. Do this world a favor and educate yourself about depression. Especially if you have kids!

Kids during puberty are at risk. Kids that have experienced trauma and major life changes are at risk. If depression goes undiagnosed and untreated, it can cause so many behavioral issues and a life-time of unhappiness. Been there! Done that! Got the t-shirt! I can’t tell you how many kids I’ve met and spent time with that are truly suffering and need us to know!!! Really, who are the adults here anyway??

Okay, new subject. GRIN I’ve been working on my kitchen. A large room with dingy white walls and beautiful old woodwork that has been re-molded by many layers of paint. I’d say it has cost about $40 all together. I bought most of a bolt of beautiful red material from Value Village. ($29)

$10 on a can of mistinted red paint. (I love how the doors turned out!)

A good friend gave me this Tiffany-type light for over the table:

And, from FreeCycleLondon three cute little wooden cabinets that I painted:

When I can afford paint the walls are my next project but it’s a start. The curtains are simple but look quite nice and help cover sins. LOL!

My sweet hubby is helping me create some funky lights for over the sink. More too follow…eventually.
