Basement Bathroom : Week 10

Heya! Oh my geezus (Gus' latest catch phrase)! Here we are at week 10! It's been so long since the last update, I feel so guilty. The holidays threw a wrench in my plans so we will just ignore them, and not even count them as part of my timeline. We'll just skip right over Christmastime and begin week 7 right after the New Year. Can I just say again that I am soooooo looking forward to wrapping this up! At the start of week 7, I was still waiting for the floor tiles to be delivered from READ MORE

Decking Out the Bathroom

Yes, I'm still working on the bathroom. It was hard to get back into the swing of things after the holidays, but I'm getting there. Just yesterday the dark blue cement floor tiles arrived, and they are amazing! I'm letting them acclimate for a few days before I go ahead with the install, in the mean time I'll be watching every youtube vid I can find until I feel totally confident that I'm not going to screw this up. Computer time has been rare these days. Our hot water heater and boiler READ MORE

As part of the refresh I wanted to actually buy a permanent piece of furniture for the space. By permanent, I mean that a corner of the living room had been sitting vacant ever since the basement READ MORE

Stuff that happened in 2016

We all need to reset from time-to-time, and for us there is no better way then to take a good hunk of time over the holidays to do so. Not to get too into feeling sharing, but I'm pretty stoked for this new year, last year was a dud in a lot of ways for a lot of reasons, and in hind-sight (and for my mental health), I'm choosing READ MORE

Winter House

Guys. As it always seems to happen, it's mid-December and the boys and I have come down with somer sort of nasty cold where all you can do all day is lay in bed, and no one is around to take out the garbage out for you or bring you Ludens. It was bound to happen, and if it had to happen, I'm glad that it's happening this week and not over our Christmas break. I'm a little late on sharing the wintery exterior of my house this year. I braved the freezing temps and went outside to snap some READ MORE
