Yuckiness and Inspiration

I have been suffering from either a nasty cold or my sinusitus has reared it's ugly head again. For those of you who don't know, I have surgery scheduled for this Thursday to correct this sinus problem. I have been on antibiotics for months and it as been keeping the yuckiness at bay.

While I've been in bed resting, I have been spending a lot of time on the internet being captivated by blogs from some marvelous women. I feel like my new best friend is Merideth at Like Merchant Ships, although we've never met or even conversed online! I have gone back in her archives and learned so much! I consider myself a fairly frugal gal, but she really has taught me so much! This blog thing is so I knew there was some cool stuff on the Internet, but really...I had no idea that some blogs were so fun. I also followed links to a ton of other blogs from her site that she likes to frequent.

I'm going to start sharing decorating and deal-finding adventures that I regularly have. Maybe someone will find some enjoyment from it. It will at least give me some incentive to get more projects done around the house, since I tend to procrastinate. I'll post some pictures of some vignettes I put together downstairs after I took my Christmas decorations down. I wanted to jazz up the surfaces in my home. And I found that it is helpful to take pictures and see things from a "distance" through the finished photo. It helps me to see what needs to be changed or added.

During the next few days before the surgery, I will be cleaning up my room (why is it that the master bedroom is always the last one I get to?). I don't want to be embarrassed if friends come up to my room while I'm recooperating. I'll post a picture of my new-to-me comforter set soon.

1 love notes to me!:

How fun!

Thanks for the lovely compliment.

Here's hoping that your new comforter--and your newfound blogs--give you lots to enjoy after surgery.
