Turn Back the Clocks

It is time to change to clocks back an hour. I am happy and sad at the same time. I wish I had another hour to sleep and get things done but I am happy at the same time. I am able to get things done around the house since there is another hour of light. I keep thinking of the posivites: I can use natural light for my photos, I will be able to work in the yard, walk the boys every night, etc etc. 

Last week we finally hung my chalkboard in the kitchen. I am super excited about it. I always wanted a big chalkboard in the kitchen to hang photos and write my menu each week or just to write my to do list for the week. Glad that project is finally done. I had made another little chalkboard for Jon to hang in the garage but we just ended up painting the wall instead. I think that was a much better idea to paint the wall instead of the tiny little board that he would of had. He had more room to write his to do lists for the bikes that he is working on.  

Also last week I ended up making a BIG change. I dyed my hair dark. I know in time for summer??? but I wanted to go more natural instead of the half bleach blonde and dark underneath. I like it but hard to get use to. I do not even remember the last time I was a single color... But so far I really like it. My hair looks more healthy than it did before so that is a good thing. I just hope when it grows in that there is not a big difference between my natural hair and my dyed hair. 

I am really excited since next month I will have some of my art work up at a local coffee shop. I have only really had my art work up once or twice at a local place. I am super excited and nervous at the same time. Thank you Michelle for thinking of me and letting your friend know about my work. I feel like for once things are headed in the right direction. We have taken some roads in the wrong direction or had some bumps along the road but I think for once that Jon and I are headed in the right way. I know it will be a long road ahead of us or just me but I am in for whatever the road has in front of us. We have been through a lot this past year but we have over come everything and have become stronger as a person and a couple. I do not know what I would do with out Jon and our boys. They have been there for me from thick and thin and I am so thankful for them. I am also so thankful for our friends that have been there as well. You truly find out who your friends are when times are tough. Thank you Dan, Michelle, Christina and Jeff for always being there for Jon and I at a moment notice. You guys mean so much to Jon, I, and the boys and things would never be the same with out you in our lives. Since I am on a roll I  do want to thank our families as well. I think this past year had brought all of us closer than we could ever be. Which I am happy and sad at the same time wishing my Dad could be here with us to experience all of this together but I know things happen for a reason and I am just still waiting for the reason to show. I love you Dad and miss you so much... 

Till next week...
