When I was redoing the playroom, I went back and forth on whether or not I needed curtains in there. The two windows in the room are large, original windows. One faces North and one faces West. The North facing window is surrounded by a line of trees and really doesn't need any window treatment on it, while the West facing window gets some sun in the afternoon/evening.
I originally thought about something really simple like wood blinds or even a nice roller shade. I wasn't crazy about…Continue
Like knock you on your butt, sick. What started out as allergies, has quickly escalated to bronchitis....Hello mucus. Needless to say, I've been very unproductive this week. The couch, a box of tissues, and I have become best friends. I high-fived myself this morning for getting two whole loads of laundry done....just five more to go!

It's a great space, but with two large windows and two large doorways, there just isn't much wall space to work with which makes laying out the furniture tricky. The other problem is that I'm asking a lot from this one room. It basically needs to serve as a gym, extra guest room,…Continue

Some women view cleaning up as a chore, but I view it as a step by step process that is organized, effective and actually relaxing (crazy I know). Allow me to explain:
Here is picture of my kitchen after dinner, which pretty much looks like a disaster. There are dishes everywhere, items to be stored and put away, dirty napkins, counter tops that are littered with cutting boards, grease and the remnants of a delicious meal.…Continue

** My kids purposely slow down to a turtle-like pace whenever I tell them to hurry up.
** When people say, "It can't get worse than this", it almost ALWAYS does.
** Listening to crap drip out of your kitchen ceiling is not a…Continue
