Hello Friends! Yes, I’m still alive! I have been taking a break from blogging over the past month or so because of some health issues that I have been having. I usually don’t get too personal on my blog because I don’t want to come across as a complainer so the majority of my posts are about my DIY projects, favorite products or thrifty finds. I thought that I should give you an update though just in case you may be wondering if I had stopped blogging. Nope. I am still here!
A little background about me. My health issues started a couple of years ago and I had been trying to not let them affect my life too much. Then one day last fall I woke up with Bell’s Palsy. Thankfully, my face pretty much returned to normal but since then I have been having constant tingling sensations, exhaustion and pain which seem to have worsened recently.
I’ve had many visits to my Doctors office along with numerous tests and we still have no idea what is wrong with me. Maybe a lot of it is due to stress. Who knows?
Then I hurt my back two weeks ago which I am blaming on my “never ending plate rack project”. After my Doctor’s visit today, I was told that I need to lay off my furniture painting projects for a little while until my back heals. At this point I am just doing a lot of resting so I can get back at it as soon as possible. I try to look at any obstacles that come my way in a positive light. Things could be much, much worse and I am very thankful for all that I have.
So in the meantime, my plate rack is currently sitting on my family room floor with a primer coat like it has been for the past couple of weeks waiting patiently for more paint and a finishing coat. I am determined to get this thing done as soon as my back feels a bit better!
I also plan to give this cute little table a makeover so stay tuned for the “after” as well.
Thanks again for being so patient with me!
Until next time,
Don’t miss a post on thrifty transformations, crafts, DIY projects and more!
