A few weeks ago I realized I was in a funk.

Which surprised me and made me feel a little guilty. I mean, we just bought a little house that I’ve been dreaming of for years. We get to redo a kitchen and I picked out pure white cabinets, we live in the country what is WRONG with me?!

Then I thought about it and there were some things I simply cannot do right now in my house. I can’t cook, which is something I always looked forward to at the end of my working day. I don’t have my own little office space yet and all of my glue guns and crafting supplies are packed away deep in a pile of boxes. I can’t stream Pandora or any online radio because we have a cap on our internet data now–that was part of my nightly ritual of going into the kitchen, turning on some music and cooking.

No wonder I was in a funk!

So I decided to to little things to help myself for the sake of me and my entire family.

1. I went and bought the ingredients to make a pot roast in my crock pot

2. I splurged and bought a new $2.99 glue gun. It killed me because I know I have no less than 3 glue guns and a bunch of glue sticks packed away in the barn somewhere. Oh and I bought glue sticks too!!!! This felt like a huge indulgence for me. I hated to buy something I already had but it gave me such freedom to be able to create a few things. Why do I make it so complimicated?!

3. I finally downloaded all of my music from that elusive cloud and allowed myself to actually purchase some music. I got Reeves new CD and remembered how enjoyable it is to listen to fresh, new music!
