Cabinetry Sneak Peak

You guys! This kitchen is moving right along. There are a couple of things that can’t be done until that one nice, still day before the rains come. That one week in Oklahoma where you can spray paint things before summer. Not too cold, not too windy, not yet April showers or May tornadoes. I’d …

The End of An Era?

My baby turned six yesterday. SIX!! When I started this blog, I was affectionately referring to him as “the three-year old.” How has it been that long? That’s like 62 in blog years. Like, retiring age nearly. (Seriously. Google it. Most are dead and in the grave before their third year.) Anyway, I made him …

My Madness Explained

I’m sure it seems absurd that I started on the other two bathrooms in this house before the master bathroom was finished. But the thing is, it really does make sense. I really do have a madness method. The hubs and I each have different areas where we excel, or types of projects that we …

Three Bathrooms

So we have three bathrooms at least partially under construction around here, remember? The master would be *this close* to completion if we’d just go ahead and commit to a shower door already. The other two are nearing completion as well. In fact, it looks like they’ll probably all be ready for a reveal at …

Whatever

I’m way behind on blogging. I’m like the worst blogger ever. But my husband and kids think I’m a pretty good wife and mom and we’ve been having a great summer, so whatever. No regrets. “But what about the bathroom?” you say. “Are they EVER going to finish?” you ask. Nope. We never are. We …

I Stole That Thing!

I Know I’m Failing

Look…here’s the deal…I’m in the middle of a mid-life crisis. In like a dozen areas of my life. I’m just going to be honest here and tell you guys that I feel like I’m failing all over the place. If you’ve been reading very long, you know that the hubs and I used to renovate …

Mold!

I considered titling this “Eviction Woes (part 5,842),” but I’m trying to get a handle on my tendency to exaggerate numbers. 🙂 Plus, this is not really an issue directly related to eviction. But first, the good news. We showed E1 a few times this weekend and probably have it rented, pending our decision today …

Eviction Woes (part 952)

I told you yesterday that we had court last Thursday for E2 (the tenant didn’t show) and were finally able to access our house on Saturday, 48 hours later. We were greeted by fleas and the smell of dogs and rotten food. There were also cigarette butts all over the garage and back porch, as …
