…dumpsters & donuts

I love you all and when you have not heard from me for a day or so it’s probably because my children have hijacked me and are forcing me to drive them from camp to pool to friend’s houses and back – all between bickering with each other. But, oh, can they look like angels at times.


We have also had some big changes in the landscape of our family with Kane going up to Doggie Heaven and Shelly-the-cat choosing to leave. I think change is a time for re-thinking and refreshing. This sometimes involves a dumpster.


We are working on a few necessary updating projects including refinishing wood floors and new carpeting. We are also doing some fun things like building out a movie room, a patio and wood floors for the master! Everything is happening in the next few weeks so I will be posting about it as we go. I will warn you now that there may be some messy photos as we go, but hey, life is messy just like home ownership & maintenance, yea? We have lived in our home for about 6 years now and serious wear & tear happen with kids, pets and life.

We are starting the projects off right today, though.

    Fun! We are renovating our master bath, exciting when it rains water down to the kitchen through the lighting! Fixed that problem, now to decide, shiplap or wainscoting for bathroom….enjoy the crazy!!!

  3. Glad to hear you are having a fun and crazy summer!

  4. Love pictures of truly happy kids!! Looking forward to following you on your updating projects.

  5. Can’t wait to see your progress! Enjoy every minute driving those babies wherever and whenever you can! They grow up fast and start to drive themselves and then go away to college. Summer is a good time to make fun memories.
