Great House Cleanup 2013

house cleaning schedule

What you see here is literally and figuratively a clean slate.

Except it’s not a slate, but more of a dry erase board. And its’ on my pantry door in a terrible purple colored kitchen that still hasn’t been painted after 3 years of residency. I’ve become so immune to it

How to advertise a garage sale for free


I used to hate garage sales. I couldn’t fathom why anyone would want the old junk I was throwing out. That is, until I decided thrifting is a way of life. Despite the insistance during my last yard sale two years ago that I would never, EVER have another, that I’d just

Letters of our history

When my husband and I got married, we lived at my Mom and Dad’s house in West Virginia while they were living in Northern Kentucky. All the stuff we had was theirs, essentially. Like all newly married couples, we had a few odds and ends of our own — Fiestaware plates and red handled

10 things that could make me quit blogging


There’s been lots of talk around the blogosphere about a general malaise (salute!) about blogging. Many bloggers suddenly have a “I don’t want to do this anymore” attitude and annoyance with the ins-and-outs of blogging. I totally get it. I, too, am drained by the constant commenting, following, tweeting and stumbling.

Lots of you

Dear Santa: I believe

Have you linked up for Holiday Movie Mania? Linkup is open until December 26!

Fact: I’ve never once admitted that I don’t believe in Santa Claus.

As far as I remember, I never had a conversation with my parents that included the phrase, “Listen, I don’t believe in Santa” or “Honey, Santa isn’t real.”

VlogTalk: My Bathroom Makeover

As you can see, I had an awesome intro I thought I recorded Sunday. I put makeup on and everything. I sat down Monday night to edit and lo and behold, I had recorded 15 minutes of me typing on my computer, then trying to plug in the USB cord, then getting up (then

Wordless Wednesday: Laundry Mountain

I often joke about conquering laundry mountain on the weekends. I didn’t realize how close we really are to having a mountain made exclusively of laundry.


This, my friends, is laundry mountain. Population, the one cat who likes to lay on clean laundry.

And for those of you who complain about husbands

Murphy’s Law

Murphy’s Law is in full effect at my house, as all my fun weekend plans went up in smoke as I was leaning over my toilet from 2 to 6 am last night. What is it with this year and my family? Today I’m posting a note that my Dad wrote about his little

At first, I mistook the sound of running water for the white noise machine in the nursery. Maybe the neighbor was running water. At 8 am? Stranger things have happened. 

I shook it off and rushed to work.

Hubby called at four Thursday afternoon and asked if I’d heard water running. He heard the

Trash or Not Trash

We had our house cleaned a few weeks ago by some professional cleaners.

It looked super fab and beautiful and shiny. I could see my reflection in the floors. I could drink out of the toilets (ew, just kidding, ain’t nothing that clean). They worked their fingers to the bone, sweeping the bunnies out
