First of all I have to say I'm sorry I've been gone so long. I have been popping in occasionally at my other blogs, but I still feel like I've neglected all of them over the last couple of weeks, and I'm sorry for that.
We've had a lot of real life stuff that's jumped up in the way of the blogging world that had to be taken care of. There have been vehicle issues, some other personal issues I had to tend to, then I found myself down and out with the flu for about 5 days. Luckily I didn't have to fight the flu bug for two weeks this time like I did last time I had it, and today is the first day I've felt normal again. I'm just so happy to be back to myself instead of laying on the couch heaving up what little food I could cram into my system.
I know you didn't need to hear that but too late. Now that I'm feeling better I've got all this energy, so I just want to go and do. I'm tired of being stuck on the couch all week.
I'm going to start off this morning by running some errands with my sister. I think a little bit of retail therapy is in order, and I promised I'd check out some tv stands to make sure she buys the right size she needs for her new tv. Then we're going to meet up with Daddy for lunch. Lunch with Daddy is always great because he loves his girls so much he always pays. Yay for free food and having the chance to spend some time with my Dad and Sis.
Then Sis and I are heading back here to try our hands at making some soap. Yeah I know a lot of people have told me we should just stick to buying handmade soap instead of making our own because it's hard to make, but we want to do it anyway. We're not looking to make a ton of it to try to sell or anything, but it is something that interests us as a hobby. Yes I know it can be an expensive hobby, but we're going to try it anyway. We're starting the easy way though with some melt & pour, and it gives us something to do together...a way to try to reconnect and make up for all the lost time we've had when we were dealing with personal issues over the last couple of years. We really need that time to bond again, and I think this is a great way for us to do it!
Alrighty, I need to get my butt in gear! I still have to dry my hair and all that good stuff so I can get out the door!
