Tonight is a very quick posting... I, regrettably, do not feel very well.

As you can see, by now, I've revamped my blog setup! I absolutely love this new one... I think it features more of my sparkly personality than the green/pink one did. The red glitter hearts did me in!!!

I also added another blog to the list I maintain on this profile- and to which I'm very, very excited about! I've always had a green thumb... And while I can't grow a garden down here, since I'm in an apartment, I've settled for collecting various house plants. What does this have to do with anything, you ask?

Well, I've already created a new Etsy shop. The Grand Opening of which, I will let you know! I have to acquire supplies, and most are easily found. The theme? Well, with the mention of gardening I assume you have some inkling of an idea.... Bringing the outdoors inside... Yes, that's right. I'll be creating little Terrariums of various sizes and plantings! I'm going to wait until I get "home" to really start utilizing mosses, miniature plants, and succulents... But for now, I've got a few ideas that are easily assembled, and easy to pack when the time comes! Are you as excited as me?!

I will keep everyone posted as to the progress of this little endeavor...

Story in a nutshell as to why I don't feel so great:
I've got back issues- namely degenerative disc disease and arthritis- in my lower back, and for over a week I've been stuck in the same spasm that just doesn't seem to want to let up. But, my friends, I'm absolutely determined to work through it. I've made the necessary appointments to see doctors to get this fixed- once and for all. I've been dealing with this for 5 years already, and it just progressively gets worse. My solution- fix the problem permanently.


Because once done, I'll be able to get back to my "normal" life... And be able to go out and walk without having to worry about how my back will feel later that evening, or the next morning. I figure, once I'm fixed and recovered... I don't have to worry for a long time about back worries- provided, of course, that I be careful!

So this is my short post for the evening... I'll most likely be back online tomorrow, with better information and pictures!

Wishing everyone peaceful dreams tonight...


  1. The blog looks beautiful, as does your new one, which I've just started following! :D Glad you'll be taking care of your back. My husband broke his & is now facing a decision over whether or not to get surgery. They'll have to go in through the front [eek!], so it's a tough one. I'm sure you're making the right choice - the healing will take some time for sure, but just getting through the day w/out that awful pain will be awesome!

  2. Thank you so much Kim!!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your husband- I wish him a quick and speedy recovery if he does go ahead with the surgery. I guess my motivation is that I can't stand being in chronic pain ALL the time...
    Plus, I've had this since I was 23... I'm too young, and it's been too long without really having relief! So the decision is made... I just need a few follow up visits with the Doc to get the a-ok-go-ahead!

    I think it's better to get fixed while still young, and to heal quickly...

  3. Hi Amanda! The poor guy is just a mess. I love him to bits, but I mean before the "accident" - which had him flipping over his handlebars head-first into a rock, alone, in the middle of nowhere, going too fast down a steep, muddy trail, w/ no protective gear!

    Pain can be quite the motivator for taking a big step like surgery. I went through one very miserable year w/ my teeth. I had weak enamel, depression & no insurance to boot. When I finally got home for help from the family, even at a young age, I insisted on having every one removed from my head! I just couldn't bear the thought of any more pain or any more lost living due to it. Sorry for the book, but I'm w/ ya - in the long run I'm sure it will be best. :)

  4. Here's to a happy, and much healthier, 2010!

    Having no insurance is an absolute nightmare sometimes... I had a period I went through that when I had initially injured my back... All those tests quickly added up...

    So here's to better luck this year, no pain, and speedy recoveries!
