InstaFriday

A recap of my week via my iPhone. Just add in a busy work week, a migraine headache, and shuttling my son back and forth to his last week of summer camp. Miracles do happen! I made ribs and mashed potatoes for dinner. The kid likes it! Ok, I outsourced the meal to Costco but […]

Galvanized Steel Magnet Board Project

Around two years ago, I bought a large wood frame from a builder’s surplus store.  I had no project in mind, but I knew that it was a good size (48 inches by 30 inches), and the price was right, around $10. We moved it around our garage several times, and eventually the frame ended […]

A garage makeover

I made an offer on our house before my husband had even seen it.  He trusts my decisions, and he was ok with it. Well, really, he didn’t have a choice.  I knew that this was “the one” when our realtor opened the garage.  Literally, the previous owner had not done anything to the house […]

Project: Simplify: Angry Kid’s Toys and Clothes

We’ve reached the end of Week 3 of Project: Simplify with Simple Mom.  Project: Simplify will be five weeks in total.  I’ve organized our master bedroom closet, paper clutter, and now Angry Kid’s room.  My husband thinks I’m nuts as usual.  I have a bad habit of going on late night cleaning sprees when I’m […]

Project: Simplify: Master Bedroom Closet

We’ve got the walls painted, the nightstands paint, and now I’m doing some cleaning in between our decorating process.  I’m joining up for Simple Mom’s: Project Simplify. Last week was the first week of project: simplify.  The task was to organize the master […]

Project Garage

In between all of that chaos and mess, is our brand new Bosch washer and dryer.  I think we bought it in July.  It is awesome.  But sigh, our garage junk is taking over once again. This picture looks like one of those in a magazine, where it gives you a list of things and […]

How To Get A Kid To Clean His Room

I have a little obsession with reality TV. I admit that. Perhaps they were having a Hoarders mini marathon on, Sunday night.  I LOVE watching that show.  I think it is appeasing to my inner OCD, and justifies my obsession with throwing things away. I know that my friend, Kim, will understand my need to […]
