Trick or Treat

Wade and I were prepared this year. We had tons of candy and didn’t run out till 9 pm. I still had to turn quite a few kids away, but it was much better than last year when we turned our light off at 7 pm. I am still astounded by the number of kids…

For Sale

It’s official. I now have a for sale sign in my yard. I have to admit I don’t like seeing it there. I don’t like knowing I have to leave my house. I’m excited about the move and Wade’s new job, but I want to take my house with me. Oh well, I’m holding out…

    I’m having trouble with the navagation . . . I click the arrow and don’t go anywhere. My computer has been acting up, so that could be it.

It’s Done! It’s Done!

Wade has had a lot of problems remodeling the bathroom. In his words, “It fights me every step of the way.” He had to return the sink three times to the plumbing supply store because it didn’t fit the vanity top. The first time it was because the literature gave the wrong dimensions. The second…

The Pumpkin Carving Tradition

Wade and I had our first pumpkin carving party the first year we were married and we have continued the tradition. The people sometimes change, but we always have a great time. This year we invited everyone we knew – church, work, neighbors, etc – and had a wonderful mix of people. The only person…

All The Family Comes To Town

My New Living Room Corner

Wade and I have always had my pinball machine in the living room. My mom convinced us that didn’t look quite right. We moved the pinball machine to the empty dining room and created a new nook area in the living room. I’m quite pleased with the way it turned out. Melissa has a three-legged…

Closer and Closer

If all I do is talk about the bathroom, that’s because it’s the focus of our life right now. We spent Sunday painting the walls and ceiling. Wade has spent all of today working on the trim. He is almost done with the baseboards and door frame. Then comes the caulking and painting. I can’t…
