Home From Work

Am I a terrible person because I am already making plans for my son’s vacated bedroom?  Setting boundaries and telling him to work or get out is one of the hardest things I have ever done as a parent; I will not continue to enable him. But… I have not had a space of my own since I was a teenager. I have always shared space with someone. Perhaps a sewing room with a chair or a day bed so I can read. Fairy lights and soft gauzy fabric. Paint in soft purple and grays. Be still my introvert heart.

5sIt is a day of “should’s” but I can’t make myself to get off the couch. I was awoken from a deep sleep this morning (soaked in sweat) at 6:30 by my rude alarm telling me to get up and get to work. I went through the five stages of waking up then got out of bed but only because I had to use the bathroom. I love my job but the majority of the people I see at 7:00 a.m. go right back to sleep as soon as I leave. They get up mostly because they are bored. Why get up just to go back to sleep? Anyway, I got up and got a coffee at 7-11 (not bad coffee of a dollar) and went on my way.

Today I went into a home of a mother of an author. She showed me all the books her daughter had written and it took all my willpower to not sit down with a cup of tea and curl up with one of her books. Obviously I can’t give out any information but this author has written many books about nature and sharing and womanhood and spirituality and loving. I came home and immediately went online to get some of the books at the library. Something tells me I am going to love this author.


I coloured my hair last night just in case you are interested. It actually looks very similar to the colour on the box.Gawd, I need to get a life.

  1. A sewing/reading room sounds nice, and the way you describe it sounds peaceful. It must be something you’ve wanted for awhile… maybe you didn’t even know it. You could read one of ‘her’ books and do a review on it sometime.
    I use Loreal – ginger spice. I’m satisfied with it. My hair grows slowly now, so I don’t have to do it often, and I always get the $5 coupon sent to my email from CVS, so it’s pretty inexpensive.

  2. Yea for a space of your own!!!! My space is the only thing that keeps me sane, and I highly recommend it to all the women I know (usually the men already have space, but not the women). I think you’ll love it. Be sure you take the time to make it just right and find things you love…it took me about 3 months to do mine room.

    I’ve tried my hair red several times, but I always find it fades so fast. Let me know if you feel like this one sticks around for 6 weeks, instead of washing down the drain. I also did a purple shade lately but it faded even faster…it’s brightness was gone in a week.

    I think your blog is look very nice these days with your new theme.

  3. As far as I’m concerned, you need that space. So go ahead and make that room for yourself. I know I would do the same. OOOOOOoooo sexay red!

  4. Um, you have more of a life than I do. I didn’t even go out of the house today. The biggest thing I did was laundry and I didn’t even finish it all. My hair is too grey to dye red anymore. It would just go pink so I’d have to dye it brown first and then add in the red highlights. Have fun decorating your new space.

  5. I’m with everyone else, you need your own space! I think it’s perfectly normal to redecorate your sons’ room and make it your own. Do it quickly before he boomerangs back! LOL!
    I’m voting for yellow with some lavender accents. It’s impossible to be sad in a yellow room! 🙂
