Changes this year

I love this blog. It is really my little baby. But lately I have found that it is a lot of work trying to keep up two blogs at a time. Since my other blog actually makes me money, this blog is suffering.

The good news is that this blog will always be around. The bad news is that I am going to start moving some my personal posts to my other blog. That includes some of my travel stuff, new recipes and other nonsense. I will come and post the link to this blog so my 10 loyal readers can still find me. I won't close this blog because it has too many photos and memories. I will also continue posting my old pictures here for Throwback Thursday. And every so often, my personal rants and some personal pictures will still be posted here.

But I also don't want my loyal readers, all of whom are my family members, not to be able to read about my life any longer. I think posting the link and some photos to this blog will be easier because then they do not have to read all the sponsored stuff I do and weed through all that before getting to some personal posts.

I thought long and hard about this and it makes sense because that frees up some of my time. Again, I will still be posting some stuff here but a lot less of it! And I do hope to actually find a full time job sometime this year!

More Renovation Hell, Austin and My Birthday!

Okay, I will tell you that I loved Austin. I had a fun time although I was left to my own devices and that is not always a good thing. But it was this time. I also had a birthday and it was just okay. That is due to the fact that when we got home, our house was not even close to being finished and I am, frankly, over it.

Yeah, I am a whiny crybaby but that should not be news to anyone. I want what I want and there have been too many things during this renovation that were a little iffy. I am more disappointed than anything else. I like our contractor but some of the people he hired were not doing what they were supposed to be doing and things went pear shaped. I get mad and rage then I get over it.

I am sure Tom would say otherwise but I see the light at the end of the tunnel and I am glad about that. But anyway, we came home and the house was all in disarray and there was some shoddy work. At one point, I finally had to say something and it was not fun for the contractor. I called him out a little and then I felt better although Tom gave me look.

The Tom look is given to me when I am about to say something or have said something and he wants me to keep my big mouth shut. I usually do that when the look comes out because I respect his judgment. I did so this time because I had already said what I had to say. But I was a brat and did slam the door to my office just because I was mad.

So the rest of the day was ugly because of this. Luckily, we went to eat at the Puerto Rican restaurant close by and I had some comfort food: rice, beans and pork and felt better. The next day, we went out shopping for rugs and towels and accessories so that made me feel better.

I will try and get some Austin pics up soon but until the work is done, I am trapped in my office and it is hard to concentrate on my work.

I keep telling myself that all this is worth it and I think it will bebut there is no way I am ever touching this house again.

Throwback Thursday in Honor of My Birthday! #TBT

I was probably days when these pictures were taken. My sister looks like she is trying to upstage me, as usual. 

I have a funny story about my sister. After I was born, she would try and pull me out of the crib by pulling me through the crib bars. My mom said she would bite me because she was jealous. I forgive her because who wouldn't be jealous of me, right? 

My birthday is Saturday so I am celebrating early.
