pring has finally arrived! Now's the time to make home improvements, that we'll enjoy for the rest of the year and many years to come. I know I can't wait to jump head-first into those projects I've been dreaming about all winter! I want to re-do my deck, removing all the weather-worn and loose planks and give it a nice coat of paint.

        I want to create a walk through garden, with little paths that lead to hidden nooks on the property. Where there's lots of shade and a nice comfy bench to sit on. Maybe even have a nice little Koi pond. Arbors, draped with grapes and flowers, scattered here and there.

   A play area for the children would also be nice. A place for their swings and sandbox. Only partially shaded, so they can pick out the spot most comfortable to them.

    Out on the other deck, I would love to erect an outdoor kitchen for barbecues and entertaining friends. Plus, it would be perfect for hot summer days, when cooking inside is a misery.

     What sort of renovation plans have all of you dreamed up, during this cold winter? I'd love to have you share them in my comments section.

  I've just been visiting my friends over at BuildDirect.com .That's where I can find everything I need for my latest home renovation project, at prices that just can't be beat. They have an amazing variety of beautiful laminate flooring. You can request a sample and see exactly what you'll be ordering. But it doesn't stop there! BuildDirect also offers an array of tile, pavers, decking, railings, roofing, siding, countertops, sinks, patio furniture, and so much more.

         Don't just take my word for it, plenty others are singing praise, over at BuildDirect reviews There is even a BuildDirect Wikipedia page, where you can learn about this great company's journey from 1999 to present day. It's a very interesting read!

Isn't This Illegal?

* Something has been on my mind for a while now and it's driving me bananas... I know of three businesses in my area, a bar, a swimming pool, and a fancy restaurant, that require people to apply for a membership and for it to be approved, before they can go there.


 A relative helped build the bar and Hub's and I were there a lot, checking on progress and chit chatting. We were given a "membership" before the place even had doors. One day, I heard the owner talking to a friend and telling him that the membership was a way of keeping the place free of "Blacks and Mexicans". He said he just never approved their membership applications.

 The restaurant is a fancy place with a catchy name and is relatively new as well. A friend of ours took his wife there and she was positively beaming as she told me about it. The food was amazing, the staff was so nice, and then she said it, "... and the best part is, there wasn't a single colored person there. You have to be a member and they don't let them in." Needless to say, my opinion of her dropped to zero and I don't talk to her anymore.

 The pool is a favorite spot for all the kids and it has just always been common knowledge that they require a membership in order to weed out anyone but white folks. I've never taken my kids there and never will.

Racism is alive and well in my area. The ones that are racist just assume that everyone else is too. It makes me crazy. Anyway, my question is... isn't what these places are doing illegal? I'm thinking it would have to be.

Now Listen Up, You Little Whipper Snappers!

My advice to younger people would be that they commit to love and accept themselves just as they are right now. I have never felt pretty. But, whenever I look back at photos of myself, from the times that I felt my absolute ugliest, I catch myself thinking, "Wow! I wasn't that bad at all!" 

Had I realized this then and not fallen victim to my own self loathing, I would have been more social, went more places, introduced myself to more people. I had low self esteem that was exacerbated by a history of bullies, boyfriends, husbands, jealous relatives, telling me that I was fat, my teeth were crooked, I talked too much, I talked too loud, I was dumb, etc... I did my best to be invisible. To this day, I am shocked when I am out and see someone from my past and they remember me. If they don't approach me, I usually don't approach them, for fear they will ask, "Who the heck are you?" But when they do approach me, call me by name, and say they remember me from school or whatever, it truly blows my mind. Somebody actually thought I was worth remembering.

A spirit crushed is a long time healing and I may never feel good about myself, but it's not too late for those of you that are right where I was years ago. don't let a handful of assholes ruin your life. Love yourself. Know you are beautiful.
