Scott and I have both remarked how comfortable our house feels now that the clutter has been cleared away. Robby been playing more in the living room, leaving my bedroom vacant at least a few hours a day. All of our extra "stuff" is slowly finding its way to new homes via Craigslist and our Black Friday shopping account is growing with the proceeds.
Inspired by the simplicity of my quasi-clutter free home, I decided to do something that hasn't been done in nearly 20 years. I've avoided this drastic change for years by employing a variety of excuses. Finally, I feel as if I have the confidence to proceed forward, and I have made the change. Yes, I have taken my hair back to its natural color.
Okay, if I truly went "natural" it would be streaked with gray. I can't be expected to be that self-confident! My hair is now one shade of dark brown, and to my surprise it isn't nearly as boring and unattractive as I remembered.
Playing off the success of my house and my hair, I mustered up the courage for my next project. I have been contemplating changing the design of this blog for awhile. I am always nervous tinkering with the design because I don't really know what I am doing. I have extremely limited html knowledge and even the most minute of changes often turn into an hours long project.
Yesterday was a rainy, cool day, and I am still fighting a cold and not feeling overly energetic. Robby seemed particularly content to watch cartoons and to play by himself with his new Matchbox car garage. It was Sunday, so Scott was occupied with football. It seemed as if the stars had aligned as I was given the time I needed to revamp The Tales of An Amputee Mommy.
Although I will miss the pink color scheme, I feel that the new design is more reflective of who I am becoming. I also wanted the blog to coordinate with my website. I am notorious for hating change, but I think this is a good one. Tell me what you think--do you like the new design? Change is difficult!
