Do you miss me like leg warmers and side ponytails?

I'm exhausted. I've been such a busy bee these past few weeks. I went from being bored, and lonely and wanting people to call me, to being over booked and sleepy! Even if I'm not hanging out with friends, I've gone to Boston to wander for the past 3 weekends, and I'm actually going again this weekend... I'm impressing myself. I'm doing a nice balance of seeing people again (yay) and having Kelly time and doing what I want to no matter if it's by myself. Yay.

I'm getting my hair colored next Friday, and I can't wait!!! I'm sooo due, I'm all sorts of blah and yucky looking. I'm not sure if I'm going to cut it shorter like my original plan or wait a while. I'll figure it out that night most likely. But it'll definitely be fabulously dark and shiny again!

I'm on another new business pitch next week - which means I'll be scrambling to get some research done tomorrow and Monday... blah. But this time, I spoke up and said I can't do what I did on my second week back - I'm not coming in super early, or staying super late, because I totally burnt myself out that way. But I feel a little more comfortable about working on this presentation, since I have a lot of info already pulled together from the previous one I made... thank goodness!

I feel like I had intended to write a lot more - I was thinking about some things I needed to write on my drive home from Mandy's cookie decorating party -- yes, another friggin' cookie party - I'm totally cookied out!! But yeah, I don't remember what the things I wanted to write about were. I do feel like the old me a little more though. Like some of the things going on in my life this time last year - are very similar to this time last year, so I feel like I'm on the right track. Let's just hope I don't find out I have cancer in a few weeks, like I did last year, ha! No worries, I'm not going to the doctor's until February, so that won't rain on my holiday parade!

Anywho, I hope you're all well. I'm trying to get more organized and catch up on sleep, yada yada yada, but I might try and post some more stuff tomorrow - once I remember what it was. BTW - are any of your secret decorating fanatics? I need some help with my apartment, I want to do some painting, but I'm super indecisive on the colors I want, because I don't want to paint all the walls, because ugh, too many! Anywho, if you're local, or even if you're not, but you've got lots of ideas, lemme know!

During your wanderings in Boston I hope you are picking out places to take us when we come in June.
Glad you spoke up about not doing the longgg hours again for this next presentation. You don't want to be exhausted for the holidays.

Hey Kel - just a quickie........I'm the world's worst and crappiest decorator (I'm a Magnolia fan as that way I don't have to worry about choosing colour!!) but I was just going to suggest going with 'Fall' colours as you love 'Fall' so much - you could have a feature wall - deep red? Just a thought, and not a very good one at that..........speak soon.....xx

Picking colours used to be my thing. I seem to be on a break from that though. I'm sure it will come back to me but maybe not in time to help with your apartment.

If I have a brilliant idea, I'll let you know.

Just a thought, though, do you like warm colours or cool ones?

It's something to think about.

I miss you like the aforementioned side-ponytails, plus The Muppet Babies, Popples, and Pogo Balls, but not so much the leg warmers!

Wish I could help you with decorating- I like to paint!

Maybe you could paint most walls a neutral color and have an accent wall of a bolder color. Each room can have it's own accent color, or if your apt is smaller, carry the accent color throughout the rooms. I only suggest a splash of color because sometimes people quickly tire of bold colors even though they love them initially. Perhaps you can narrow down your color choices and post them here for the peanut gallery (that would be us!).

I am a closet decorator. I love this stuff! You wouldn't know it necessarily looking at my house, but it's more my limit of resources than imagination.

Yo yo yo. There is a new guys Jamie out of Boston who has 1A Hodge and started a blog after reading mine called

Check it out.

Anyway, long time between our last chats, but I love the direction that your blog has taken. Any thoughts of changing the name? Not that I would, but I can see someone wanting to mix it up after a while. I hope the North East winter isn't taking too much out of you and I hope you get your strength back to where it was prior to all of this.

Take care and I will keep in touch.
