Personal Post 1

I started back at school last week at Metro State and so far so good. Its nice to have time out of the house on my own. Doing something for myself that isn’t related to the house, child or hubby. Funny thing is the night before classes start I finally received my Associates Diploma from CNM.

One of the added benefits of going to school is the access to a pool and gym. Since Omar is able to be homes on Friday w the LO while I’m at school I am able to spend time working out. Something I really need.

One of the things I have found w being back in a regular classroom is I no longet have any trepidation speaking up in a classroom. I mean I don’t have full confidence in my intelligence but I’m not really concerned about what I say. So different then years ago doing everything I can to sit in the back of the class hoping I won’t be noticed by anyone let aline the teacher.

So here is to a good year of learning and opening not just my mind but myself to whats out there.

Kitchen Sweat Equity

Well… we are almost done with the kitchen. Recently DH and Bf have framed out one of the arches. We have molding partially done. Still needs to be painted.

Right now its the details that we are working on. Getting the plugs put back in place. All the cabinet knobs on. Finishing the backsplash. Trims. Touch up painting. Etc.

We have some other things that are going to put the kitchen on hold. Due to a very curious child we have to renovate our family room. Not much just moving the tv and building an entertainment center that’s inserted in our wall so that wires, electrical equipment et al are out of reach.

We have some other things to do down there. Recently found out that the previous owner had fixed the basement right before the sale because their tenants had left the water on outside the house and there was damage. So we are going to do a mold test because somethings are happening to the walls that now make sense.

Will post pics soon of everything else.
