I woke up to snow this morning. It really wasn’t a lot of snow but it was enough that I was happy to see it. Not because I like snow but because I was supposed to take my mom to a Christmas Tea (craft fair at someone’s house) for the entire day and all I really wanted to do was stay home today. She won’t go anywhere if it’s snowing, even if I offer to pick her up. She’s had a few bad experiences driving in the snow so there was no way that she would go especially since the news people didn’t have anything better to report on and were making a huge deal out of it. I have a truck so if I had wanted to go, I would have.
It was great being able to stay home all day. I got a lot done and I didn’t have to rush to get anywhere. I was able to finish my plans for the entry way. I have a little more to think about yet but I think we’ll be ready to build it by next weekend if I can find time to finish painting. I was able to spend a little time on an online class that I’m taking. It’s not hard but I never have time to sit and work on it.
I even spent some time updating some of my hubs on Hubpages. They’ve been badly neglected. I was a Squidoo’er and this move to Hubpages has been awful. I loved Squidoo. I loved the little monsters, the cute themes and the fun groups. Most people were nice on the forums. I made sales on Amazon and was rewarded with useless but fun points for it. At Hubpages, the people in the forums are not nice. The themes are non existent so the whole site is drab and boring. There’s constant changes that don’t make sense. And worst of all, if you make a sale on Amazon, they unfeature your hub so you can’t make anymore. I’m sure other people have better experiences with the site but that’s how it’s been for me.
It was an awesome day but there was one thing that really made me smile. It was a feeling that I haven’t had in a long time. I was able to sit in my living room and look around and not feel overwhelmed or too miserable to be there. I was content. There’s still too much stuff in the room but it’s not too bad. It might be overly cluttered by some people’s standards but compared to how it was, it looks beautiful. I feel like all the work I’ve been doing on it is finally paying off.
