For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough.

DIY: Chalkboard Bottles

I love easy DIY's and this one certainly qualifies. All you need is a bottle and some spray on chalkboard paint and you're done. I would recommend using Krylon chalkboard paint as I have had good results with this brand (this is not a sponsored post but simply my own observation).

How to:

Choose a bottle.
Remove the label from the bottle using hot water (if there is one).
Dry the bottle and make sure it is completely dry before spray painting.
Spray the chalkboard paint onto the bottle following the directions on the can.
Let dry 24 hours.
Use chalk to draw or write what you like on the bottle.
