When Writing Becomes Hard

Hey everyone, So I am an awful blogger.  Horrible.  I am so inconsistent.  Even after I purchased my first ever computer, I just can’t muster up things to write on paper.  My brain is fried from the summer and having all three kids at home all day long.  There’s never alone time, or quiet time to…

Built-In Bookcases & Living Room Remodel Update

Hello everyone! It’s been awhile since I have blogged.  We’ve had very slow progress on our built-in bookcases and living room remodel.  Partly because we only have the weekends to really work on them, and last weekend was a bust with church activities and The Super Bowl.  Then I came down with viral gastroenteritis on…
