Day 3 is the letter C! C is for Change. See my overview post for the 2015 A-Z Blogging Challenge here.
The Good: The title is true. I like change! In fact, I like it so much that I changed my blog theme. Again. I think the last time I changed it was maybe 3 months ago? I like the thick navigation bar, although the color may change depending on my mood. Change is a good thing! My blog isn’t the only thing I like changing. I am also a redhead now (with purplish-brown on the underside) vs. blonde. I think it’ll be a little easier to maintain than the glaring contrast of blonde vs. dark brown roots threatening to choke me out every few months. Let’s face it. I cannot afford to get my roots touched up every 6-8 weeks! We bought a house. It’s pretty awesome and actually not that much more per month than we were paying for rent for a smaller apartment. It is a little farther commute, but I rather like a scenic country drive. We have a cute walkable town a few miles away and a half acre to stretch out in if we want to hang around the house. The kids and dog love it too! They have been much less crabby (the kids that is) and Juice romps from room to room with her chew toys, not sure which one she wants to settle down in for a nap. The house was a flip, so many of the appliances are new along with other additions to the little house. We still have a lot of work to do, but I am so happy with it so far. It has a lot of potential to be the perfect house. And it’s a home. Our apartment was a home because we lived there together, but it was sad and blank and cold. This house is our home and will be for awhile. So, maybe I’ll change my blog theme a few more times or color my hair blue (I can’t…I work in an office), but maybe my love of change will stop at my home. I don’t want to move. And that, my friends, is also a good thing.
The Bad: . . . Hmm. . . What is bad about change? I guess getting the poor kids used to a new setting, but we established above that they like it better. I really am having trouble fulfilling my entire theme for this post. I really like change! I like moving the furniture around, painting walls…I guess change can be a lot of work. Work isn’t necessarily bad, but it can be annoying. I hate moving. I hate packing stuff into boxes and trying to sort them by room. Everyone is cranky on moving day and the kids get super confused as to what’s happening. All of that is over for a hopefully LONG time, so we’ll forget about it!
The Katy: One of my favorite things to change is hobbies. I love trying new things, even when I don’t have much time. With a new house to play around in, there are plenty of new projects to keep me busy!
