In the Candy Store

I’m like a kid in a candy store this week, or just a grownup getting to stay home until after the first of the year, hanging out in my jammies, drinking hot chocolate, and getting some long neglected house projects out of the way.

There have been several phone calls back and forth with a local homeless shelter regarding the donation of the bed in my spare room. Once it goes to a family in need I’ll have that room clear to transform it into what I’ve been wanting for years – a writing/art room. A studio. A room of one's own. Then I’ll have no excuse to avoid writing, and my creative messes will be limited to one room instead of spread around the rest of the house.

This post is being written on my new toy; my husband gave me a new laptop for Christmas. I’ve wanted one for years, and now that I’ll have a room just for me it’s the perfect gift at the perfect time. Yep, I’m like a kid in a candy store. And it’s only going to get better.

I've joined you in the "hanging out in my jammies" department. I'm off this week, also. Don't you just love it?!
Enjoy your new toy!

Oh, how I wish my employer would allow vacation time in December! Enjoy your last few days as you explore your new laptop and envision the experiences you'll have in your new writing/art room in the year ahead. Happy New Year!

I'm still in my jammies, and I don't care if I ever get out of them again!

Happy New Year, Cara. I wish the very best for you and your husband this year.
