Be Happy

I'll admit, I've been in a rotten mood lately. The Army has decided that they want to restructure our housing area, so we have to move. Technically they're going to move us, but I still hate the thought of moving, and the jumping through hoops that has to happen for us to move. I should be happy, we're getting a bigger house, although my craft area will be much smaller. This is like fitting 15 pounds of crap in a 5 pound bag for me. Clean it out? Surely you jest, I throw nothing away!! What if I need it again later? But I'll give a little for each of my kids to have their own room. However, we're moving from a stand alone house, to a duplex. We've never had much luck living in duplexes before with the Army. However, our backyard will be bigger, and we back up to some woods (Pine besides, oh goodie (can you sense the dripping sarcasm?), I can't wait until spring and sinus problems! All in all the positives far outweigh the negatives....I mean hubby agreed I could get new furniture!?! So why am I not excited? I dunno.

So today I was moping around in my basement, actually contemplating a yard sale, and I looked at my jewelry table. (I do this a lot, but lately I haven't had much oomph to create.) Anyway, this little smiley guy/gal, created by the insanely talented loribeads, was looking back at me from my bench. I swear he/she said "Be Happy!" So today I've decided, I WILL be happy! No matter what, I will be excited and happy about moving. I will be excited about having a yard sale and the prospect of unloading a ton of JUNK. (No craft supplies though...those are coming with ME!)

Awwww, what a cute face! That ring would make me happy for sure!
Wish I could be there to help you move - girlfriends make major life events sooooo much better (especially girlfriends bearing large bottles of chilled wine)!

Cheer up and hang in there!
