DIY Pantry


I finally decided on the size based on our need , it only took me days!! Both my husband and I hate doing drywall and we both love weed so we decided to install shiplap instead. I am going to have two drawers the length of the side with only one piece on it and then shelves on the rest. I might put drawers on the other side as well but, not sure yet .

You know the messed up part of this whole thing is, the blue print design was easy, the building part is not too bad but the actual designs, colors , drawers or shelves, lighting, that part is the most difficult!! I’m worried I won’t like the results or it won’t look right, wow! Well I guess we will see!!!

I messed up


I have a bipolar friend that I have written about a few times. She has very few friends and no family. She has 4 kids by different fathers and the only one that was good for anything died.

She works one day a week and needed a baby sitter for her 3 year old daughter. I have helped her raise all of her kids so seemed to make sense I helped her with it.

After a few Sunday’s went by her youngest boy wanted to come along so of course I said yes. The second time he was here and we were outside , she took off running to see her brother and I went to put our drinks on the deck, I turned around and she was on the ground crying. She has run up behind her and he accidentally hit her with the bat he was playing with. She had a big egg on her head next to her eyebrow, we checked for a concussion and she did not have one. I sent her mom a message and told her what happened, and she was mad at her son and I just kept telling her it was not on purpose. After we dropped them off, she didn’t say anything to me and hasn’t talked to me since. Today is Sunday, I don’t have the little girl. She still hasn’t spoken to me and didn’t call me to get the little one.

I am so devastated that I let he down. I feel as though I lost a friend.

Adult scoliosis


Years! I’m talking YEARS! I have dealt with a unbalance in my hips. I have had tests, and more testa but they never said anything about a curve in my back?? My dr confirmed it with old X-rays, old X-rays!

It started when I tried to lay on my back on my yoga mat, I put my knees up and my feet flat and it felt like I had a rock under my pelvic bone. It hurt like crazy and it was slightly on the left. After I got up it hurt so bad for the rest of that day.

So now it’s physical therapy for me, but it may help so we will see.

I don’t know anyone with scoliosis, how about you?
