This Is Me...

Me Today  :)
This is what 59 looks like!  Thinking back to my youth when I thought 60 was soooo old, 59 doesn't look so bad!  In fact, it looks a darn site better than 58 did! Although my hair is currently longer than it has been in quite awhile and is starting to drive me insane! Can't wait for the salons to open!

      On Reopening: 
Governor Wolf announced today that the counties in which my children and I live will all move to "yellow" phase on June 5th. My birthday gift from the government! Yellow phase means that restaurants may open for outdoor dining only and social gatherings of less than 25 are allowed.  Gyms, spas, and hair salons must remain closed. Work from home where possible is still strongly encouraged. 

Now that we have a move forward date, it's just a matter of waiting to hear when we can move to green.  Green doesn't mean "business as usual" the way we used to know it, but does mean that gyms and hairdressers can open at 50% capacity, indoor dining at 50% capacity, and gatherings of less than 250 would be allowed. We need to be in green for Becca's wedding, so fingers crossed!

On the Job Front: Jay is expecting an offer on a new position within the next week. I'm hoping the money and benefits are there, because I think this would be a great move for him.  In the interim though, his current job has called him back to work starting Monday! So either way, he's off the unemployment rolls!

What is the good news in your piece of the world?

One Little Word

Playing catch up ... here's some random pages from my One Little Word album which I managed to bring up-to-date during National Scrapbooking Day.


I'm definitely in a better frame of mind than I was last time I posted. Nothing has changed except my own mindset. I still have no income and Jay is still on furlough. 

Yet, somehow I know it is all going to be okay.

Rather than fuss about things over which I have no control, I'm putting all my effort into building the foundation of my new business. When the world starts up again, I plan to be ready to go!

If any of you have advice on building a website, creating a logo, branding, etc. I'm all ears! I'm in over my head here...
