The Project Is Done!

The Project Is Done!

I am happy to say that our house smells like fresh paint!  The project is done!  The textured ceilings are now a memory, the extra additions to the ceiling have been removed and repaired and it looks amazing!  What a grueling 2 weeks that was but it was so worth  and it was incredibly satisfying.… Continue Reading

I Tackled The Big One…

I Tackled The Big One…

Last week I tackled the big one.  A huge DIY home project that has been on my mind since we moved in 10 years ago.  I decided it was finally time to remove the horrible “textured” ceiling that someone put in both the living room and the kitchen.  I put textured in quotes, because it… Continue Reading

In Case You’re Wondering…

In case you wondering why I’ve been MIA some weeks lately and sending posts out way late in the day, I thought I’d show you a part of what I have been up to besides dealing with Big Bro.  Since the whole house inside seems like such a mess and me powerless to do the… Continue Reading

For God’s Glory

I have been reading so many things about new years resolutions and advice on making those resolved life changes stick.  I think two of the best pieces of advice I heard were to make it an “I will” rather than an “I won’t” and to do your resolution for God’s glory. God has showed me… Continue Reading

Perspective

Perspective and scheduling and their importance is becoming very evident to me.  Without those two components, everything seems to just fall apart here.  And both of those components require self discipline. Funny thing is that I fail miserably at all three things if left to myself! That is what I love about being in a… Continue Reading
