I have a few things on my to do list -
remodel the kids' bathroom
renovate an old farmhouse
write a novel
Well, actually the list is a wee bit longer. I'm finishing up my third home remodel - so the kids bathroom will get a new look soon - and I'm trying to figure out what I'll do next.
As a mother of four, I don't always have enough time in my day to get everything done. There are usually a few dirty dishes in the sink when I drag myself up to bed. But for some reason, the thought of having a completely renovated house makes me kinda...sad. I get anxious to find something to do in all my spare time (when I'm not driving kids, making dinner, running errands, attending hockey games or plays - or what ever the kids get involved in). Ok, I do have a busy life but I LOVE having a busy life.
So I decided to start this blog. I wish I had started it earlier. About 6 years earlier...when my husband and I bought this house. Oh my. It was in rough shape. A 1964 traditional with a 1989 remodel. A really bad 1970's sunroom addition. Overgrown landscaping. Well, it was ugly. But the price was right - and the street was great. So we went for it. And now we are almost finished. Yup...we're slow. But with four little ones and a demanding career, time was not on our side. Now I'm ready to go back in time and share all of the
exhausting fun times we've had making this house into a home.
