What's new?

Hi all - I've been wallowing in my own issues and also working like a dog, so haven't had much time to visit your blogs and comment very meaningfully. Sorry! The work will continue for a little while, but I'm trying to stop the wallowing.

My 'big' news:
- my medication was increased yesterday - the one that can cause the deadly rash. I think part of my problem for the last week was that I was headed into a little depressive episode (like yesterday, I slept for 12 hours - not normal for me). I think it will be good. Though this morning after I scratched a small itch on my arm, I jumped out of bed to look in the mirror and make sure it wasn't a rash...
- I've hired a highly recommended contractor/handyman to make a big leap in my kitchen. He'll install the ductwork, make the exit to the outside, install my cabinets back on my wall, and rip up the rest of the kitchen floor. Tomorrow! O, so worth the money, which isn't very much in the grand scheme.
- I also decided I needed to make a few more steps to make my place a home. So I bought expensive blinds for my windows in my bedroom. (top down bottom up cordless honeycomb levelor). Obviously I'm doing my part to help the economy. I have some savings so I'm not going into debt for it - just getting more house poor as they say (which freaks me out a bit, but I'll deal).

So, I hope everyone is well. Work calls...

How nice to just have someone come in and take care of the icky stuff. I'm sure it's well worth the money.

I hope everything goes well with your meds.

Oh, I dream about those top down honeycomb levelors. And I'm NOT being sarcastic. Congratulations, I"m sure you'll LOVE them.

Also, congratulations on hiring the contractor to do some of the heavy lifting. Does that mean you're doing the rest yourself??? and can I come and learn? Because I"m seriously tempted by this bathroom this year....

(also, good luck with the med issues. yikes. lots going on.)

Making your house into your home is a huge job and it seems to me that you are moving forward on it very efficiently! I'm impressed.

Here's to good medicine.

Churlita - it's all kinda icky, but really really interesting. I just need a jump start. And thanks.
Not-I'll take a photo so you can see if you'd really like them. I'm doing everglade linen - which is kinda a neutral green if that at all makes sense.
Laura-doing renovations is not the same as making it nice, oddly enough. I haven't hung anything yet, etc. But am working on it. Oh, I did put up a shelf in the bathroom finally - it's stuff like that that I need to do.

First and foremost, best of luck with the meds.

And thank you for helping with the economy too!

Deadly rash?? Now I'm going to worry.

Good luck with the medication - I've read about that one. Aside from the rash, the side-effects seem a little more bearable than many of the others so I hope that is your experience of it.
