Backyard Makeover

So as every pool owner knows, they don’t last forever, and they are basically a giant ass money pit. Well, the time came this summer to resurface our pool. If you have not yet lived through this take my word for it, one of the biggest hassles ever. Not to mention expensive. Ok, enough of my first world woes. Point being, our pool rehab sucked our entire outdoor budget right down the tubes.

Pre-School Basics – Part 2

Just a little follow up to yesterday’s post, where I was ranting and raving about enrolling my daughter in college, I mean pre-school. So what I didn’t tell you guys is that yesterday I got to stay in the classroom and observe. Today was our first drop off day.

Pre-School Basics

So even as I type that I laugh. Why? Because there is nothing “BASIC” about pre-school. My plan was to keep our 3-year old home with me for one more year. Her birthday is late October, so next year pre-school and then on to Kindergarten.

Hey Ya’ll

So school has started or is starting in the next day or two. Just a friendly PSA to brush up on your school bus rules. OK, first of all let’s remember when we were kids on the school bus. Yes, that’s right, I didn’t have one of those booshie ass childhoods. I rode the school bus. Yes, kids picked on me and I am semi -traumatized from the school bus, but that is not the point. The point is;

Ugly Office Makeover

Hey guys,

This has got to be my favorite summer project. Mostly because it means I don’t have to write these blogs from the chaos of the kitchen anymore. So this really weird room was an add on to our house from the previous owner. He wanted a “workshop” so he butchered our 2 ½ car garage and created this space. I am only grateful for it now that I have been kicked out of two home offices spaces in the last two years. That’s what happens when you have kids. They take all your space, and your sanity. Anyways, we used this little box room for tools, crafts, storage, junk, and finally I got tossed in here as well.
