Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

From Burma

As most of you know we have a family of Burmese refugees coming tomorrow to live in my old house.

I am taking a tiny little bloggy break to help get things set up. I have collected more toys for the kids and clothes than I think my own children have. I have been so fortunate to have wonderful friends who are bringing them clothes, blankets, toiletries, toys, and shoes.

There are seven people who will be living in my "single girl" home. It is a three bedroom single family home that I owned pre-husband. One that I feel so guilty thinking was to small for my family of four. It is amazing the things that we take for granted, like a home, the safety of our family, and the ability to do things such as shop at Goodwill to bargain hunt when we want to.

Here is a great link for everyone to check out about the Karen people in Burma and one refugees story about arriving in America.

Thank you so much for your understanding and I will see you all on Monday!
