Hello everyone and welcome

Welcome to all of the new members. I am so glad you decided to spend a little of your time here. It feels like I have been away forever. While many of you have been shoveling out from under the snow I have been trying to get hold of a mold problem. It rained here steadily for a couple of weeks and created more mold on, in and around everything than I have ever seen. We have cleaned out just about everything we own and decided to downsize a few of our belongings along the way (No miniatures included). My desktop computer decided to go kaput as well. Pretty bad timing right after Christmas. Isn't it funny how things just happen that make you get your business in order.....see you soon!

No resolutions for me... I will reevaluate and create another Dream Board.

Like many people as 2010 moved into place I thought long and hard on what my resolutions for the year would be. If you look up the meaning of the word you will find that while not really negative, they bring to mind a sense of  forcefulness, something that must get done or else. The word comes with a heavy weight and feels like an inhibition of my creative side. So this is what I did, I created my Dream Board. It is so much fun and you can put anything on it your heart desires. A Dream Board is a more creative way to keep a reminder of what you want to accomplish. Nothing has to have a timeframe. This one item on mine was a big deal AND I wanted it complete by the end of 2010. If I had to think and record every step that it would take for me to accomplish this dream I would have felt overextended.  A simple rendiditon did the trick. Want to see what was on my dream board?

Now let me introduce you to SW 3rd St.

This means much more to me than just owning a house. Its roots, a place where my family can come to stay without saving for a lifetime. I will be able to hop on a plane a get to them in a couple of hours. It is a quality of life that will allow me to do the things I really enjoy, the things that fill my soul and make me happiest.

Google maps puts me and SW 3rd St 6,017 miles apart and in order to live here it will take some major changes in every area of our lives. Looks like I have a lot of new choices for this year. Would you like to join me in creating a dream board?
