No working car

Both our cars do not work and I feel totally trapped inside my house.Why is it instead of enjoying my day and watching my favorite house shows ,I am a nervous wreck and now my stomach hurts!!!!!!!Half the day we waited for my dad to come over with his mechanic friend from Chicago.They have been trying to fix my husbands car and the part they need cannot be found here in Kenosha.They moved on to my car and my husband is trying to buy some part at the auto store. I really have been feeling too stressed out lately!!!!On the bright side,my oldest son is going to grandpa's house for a week!!!! One less teenager to have to deal with!!!!! I hope everyone's weekend is going better than mine!!!! I should have at least one working car by tonight!!!!!!!( I am keeping my fingers crossed)

I can't believe we put all our xmas stuff away!!! I normally wait until after New Year's but some how the house felt really cluttered.My husband has finally agreed that we have outgrown our house.Even with redoing the kitchen ,it seems we have too much STUFF!!!!! I have really stopped all my collecting.I have been cleaning nonstop hoping to Feng Shui our house.I am starting to think about my new goals for 2008 and hoping a clean house will jump start a new life.Clearing the clutter = a clear mind!!!!!!!

This year Xmas was very stressful!!!!! We usually start the Xmas rounds the weekend before Xmas.This year we went to my husbands dad's house on Sunday.On our way to the gas station which is about 15 minutes away ,our minivan over heated and steam started coming out of the hood.Sunday was our very first below zero wind chill day.I was freaking out because of how cold it was.Luckily we were able to drive home and switch cars.We took my husbands car (which we barely fit in)and off we went.It took us three hours from our house to dad's.The weather conditions were not ideal ,besides being dangerously cold it was unusually windy and hard to drive.My husband and I drove through a snow blizzard last weekend to pick up a massage chair from Craigslist and he thought the Sunday drive was way worse.Fast forward to Xmas Eve.We woke up to drive my daughter to work and now our second car would not start.Trent was trying to jump start the car for three hours.After pushing it into our garage and placing a space heater by the engine it finally started.The only place we went was the grocery store and to pick up wood.We were supposed to go to Chicago to visit friends and to see my dad but we did not want to get stuck there if our car decided not to start again. Xmas was nice for the little kids but my two teenagers got on my nerves!!!!!
It was probably everything else but I felt really stressed out.WE finally had a nice dinner.Trent and I went to a Chinese restaruant (the only one open)without the kids and I finally felt better!!!!The kids wanted to stay and play with all their stuff so thay were happy as well.I am so glad Xmas is over!!!Hopefully it will be better next year!!!!!1

Inspiration photos

I love collecting photos from magazines of the things that I would like to have. If anyone has seen the movie"The Secret",it is like a vision board.I mostly put mine in notebooks and look them frequently.I love putting a "star" by the things that have materialized.Alot of times I notice I cut out different versions of the same item.I found these photos from the country home website.I love collecting religious art even though I am not a religious person.I like to think of myself as spiritual and somewhat mystical.These are interesting photos from a cool loft .

New Look

Yesterday I decided to cut off all my hair!!!!! I've been feeling like I needed a new look for a while.My husband is a superstar stylist and I wanted him to cut my hair in a trendy short style. I was feeling like I was in a rut.I had been growing out my hair for the last 5 years and I was bored with it.WHEN I styled it ,it looked good but lately I just put it up in a ponytail .I felt very soccer mom-ish!!!! Here are photos -What do you think???? I am training my son Tristan to color my hair since Trent hates coloring it!!! I am a stylist also but I mostly color hair.
