Morning all…. I’m sitting here in my living room looking out at the dreary gray of the day. I can’t even begin to complain about the weather. We have been BLESSED in Fairhope, AL. It seems that spring decided to move in last month, and it’s been fabulous.
I’ve been thinking about blogging lately. I even had a long email convo with my buddy Donna from Funky Junk about it. It’s always a struggle for me. Sometimes I get TOO into it and other times I totally back away and go MIA for months. I’m not very consistent to say the least. :) Part of it is my health….This nasty dysautonomia that is always clinging to my tailcoat. It never ever never goes away, and it limits my life in SO many ways. I had a very bad episode from mid January when we got back from NYC until just a couple of weeks ago. That episode FLOORED me. I have changed some meds up, and so far that seems to be helping a lot. It’s amazing. As SOON as I’m well projects start calling my name. I have had the opportunity to work on several things over the past couple of months. When I have a good day I usually will sew or paint SOMETHING… and plan…. I love to plan plan plan plan plan all my upcoming projects.
SO. Today I am committing to myself that I will share my projects starting Monday. I want to share the things I’ve done and my feelings about them. I want to share the things I want to do and WHY I want to do them. I want to share me. This blog will be evolving again. I want to show all sides of Loulou….the woman who loves to paint a piece of furniture, the one who loves to sew for girls, the one who loves to create, AND the one who is sometimes trapped in the bed just WANTING to do all these things. This blog is NOT going to become a diary of the whining woman. I do want to share some about my condition. Many people don’t even know what dysautonomia is, and I want to educate those who want to know. You probably have someone in your family who has it and doesn’t know it, or you have. Your great Aunt Alice who always sat around and had a “weak constitution” probably had it too. :)
I have so many fun things to share! I’ve reupholstered and slipcovered chairs. I’ve redone 2 tables and completed several projects. I’ve had such fun getting this house the way I envision it. Of course that vision changes constantly. Case in point: the mommy den I JUST completed. I hate it. Yep. I do. The color doesn’t make me happy, and I don’t like the way it’s accessorized. I’ve already bought the paint and supplies for a surprise element…. All this will be coming soon. I can’t promise that I’ll be here all the time. I just can’t. I am shooting for 3 posts a week. Blogging is good for me. It gives me a place to “get it all out”. I really appreciate those of you who have stuck with me through all these ups and downs. It means the world. Thanks for all the love, patience, and inspiration you guys constantly give.
love and hugs.
