It's the hard knock life

*Warning* Mom's vent....

Oh how I love Saturday chores......My boys were asked to do 2 simple chores today

1. Clean their bedrooms
2. Clean their playroom

Both chores should have taken them an hour at the most. Well they have now been at it for 3 hours and still going. All I have heard all morning is "I can't do it!", "It's too messy!" "It's too hard!", "Austin isn't helping", "This is going to take forever!", "Cameron threw Lumpy into the fan", "Cameron isn't helping", "Ethan's making messes" get the point. So from the mother who is feeling a little like Miss Hannigan to the boys who've got it so rough, I dedicate this to you....Oh and by the way, I did clean their bathrooms for them which would have been chore #3 (Mean Mom)

"What are you just standing around here for? You're supposed to clean the bathroom and the kitchen before lunch, my little pig droppings, and if you skip the corners, there will be no lunch. And we're not having hot mush today...We're having cold mush!" --Miss Hannigan

A true story....

Once upon a time there was a dated, sad, old light that was in need of a makeover

Then a new family found her for sale through the classifieds, forked over $5 dollars for her and brought her home. With a vision, a tutorial, a can of Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint, and one hard working husband, she was transformed....

And now she is a happy Pottery Barn knock-off hanging happily where once lived some lovely track lights over our stairway. And she lived happily ever after.



The End!

Disaster zone....

My house is a disaster at the moment and I am really happy about that, because it means the we are finally getting these:

Hooray for railings!

a little helper

and I can finally say goodbye to my lovely sub floor as the wood is finally going in:

Thank you Jed and Brett. I know that everything that you have been doing is A LOT of work!

More pictures soon to come!

Straight No Chaser - I'm Yours/Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Sorry about all the videos lately, but I was just cleaning away and listening to Pandora, when this song came on and I had to look it up on youtube to see who these guys were. They are amazing! I love them! Enjoy!
