Clinical depression

I was diagnosed with depression about seven years ago and have lived with it fairly well with as long as my meds are right. Every now and then when the meds stop working  I turn into a weepy pile of hot mess. That happened Friday and hopefully the doctor can get me back on the right track Monday. This has been provided as a public service announcement. If you wake up weeping and feeling like hot pile of mess go to the doctor!

What's old is new again!

Old picture frame, just enough left over spray paint to paint 5x7 frame, wire mesh leftover frame scrapbook page. Now a brand new earring holder!

My scrappy letters holder

 Looks tons better than the black club!
I got this really cheap at hobby lobby clearance and finally decided to make it look good in my craft room!

School desk

Love this!  Even though it was a lot of work!

I bought this old school desk for $10. Someone had spray painted it pepto bismal pink, gross!!!  They even sprayed over the gum stuck under the desk, more gross!  I stripped and scraped and finally found the original color. I also found a math test rolled up and stuck in one of the metal pipes under the desk dated 1976. Here's some pics before and after. I painted the desk top with chalkboard paint and tried to restore the rest to its original colors.

The Grinch

Yesterday was Dr. Seuss day at school, also Hayes was star of the week. I took him lunch from the Sonic and ate at the special table. Then I went back to his room and read his favorite book to the class. He was happy to his CC come to school and I enjoyed it too.

Stories that would bore my daughter!

 My Dad is 72 years old tomorrow and I love to hear him talk about his childhood now.  Of course, there were times when they would bore me to death.  But I cherish them now.  I am from a small town known for its gravel and we have a lot of gravel pits.  Dad and I were trying to out do each other with gravel pit stories from our childhood  the other day.  Swimming in the deep blue water the pits created, the pits were the town's lover's lane and playground!  He finally told a story I'd never heard about finding dynomite and him and his best friend would light and through in the "blue swimming hole".  At that point I said okay you WIN!!!
