2017 will be a ............................. year

The break was awesome.  I actually got some stuff done.  I made progress.  And the trend continues.  We initiated some projects to get us more organized.  We would have gotten even farther if it wasn't for a bad support bar in the shelving we just bought.........have to replace that shelving unit and then we can keep going!!!

I also started a project I never expected to work on, and REALLY never expected to enjoy as much as I am.  The hubster finally had to take possession of his comic book collection.  Let's just say there are a lot of them.  He started out pretty organized, alphabetized, bagged and boarded.  But some time between 1990 and 1991 he basically just started piling them in boxes.  So, I am cataloging and organizing his collection.  It's been very fun and very relaxing to do.  Who knew????

I am loaded with anxiety as 2017 kicks off.  My coping method may not be healthy but I am basically avoiding all media at all costs.  I may have to give up Facebook sooner rather than later.  The less I see and read the better my mental health.  I am turning inward, to myself, my home, my family.  In my little bubble I am safe and happy.  And that is where I need to be.  If I look too far out I see only pending disaster and loss.  It's not a question of if, it is a question of when and how much.  If I look beyond my four walls what little hope I have for humanity diminishes.  I know there are good people out there doing great things and I applaud and cheer for them.  But I can't watch our world slide into the hell it is heading for.  I just can't.  We joke about the collective fall of the IQ but damn, now we are seeing the results first hand and it is terrifying.

So, life for me is house projects, jigsaw puzzles, books, crafts, and quality time with the hubster and furry kids.  And that, that is a great thing.  I love my inner world.  My little library is my sanctuary, my happy place.  My home is my castle.  My family is my world.  And that is how it should be how it needs to be.
