The Never Ending Project

My goal before our furniture was delivered was to complete painting in the living room and dining room. I had planned to paint the walls, the ceilings, and the trim. The trim turned into a nightmare. I thought a good sealer coat would be enough to cover the stained trim and I would still be…

    $27,000??? I hope that’s a typo! WOW!

    That’s not a typo! Insane isn’t it?

Painting and Hanging

Wade and I have most of our pictures back on the walls. I wasn’t sure what to do with the stars Jamie gave me for my birthday last year. The stars are red and blue which I didn’t think would look right on my red walls. Wade pointed out the obvious – paint the stars….

    I love the paint job on the walls and the stars. They look fantastic.

Sad News

I got some sad news today. Melissa and Chris had to have Taylor put to sleep. Shortly after adopting her they discovered some heart problems. Over the last year the problems have gotten worse. Taylor was having trouble breathing and the vet tried a few things, but couldn’t decrease the fluid around her heart.

Let’s Make Some Money

Our house in Milwaukee is slightly smaller than our house in Anderson. More importantly, there is radiant heat which leads to less wall space. We also lost a walk-in attic. All of this has motivated Wade and I to sell, donate, and throw out. We decided to keep a running tally of everything we sell…

Johnny, Cash, and Tango

Wade and I have one room 90% done. The kitchen only needs the track lighting removed and can lights installed, but that is a later project. For now it is done – painting, decorating, etc. In celebration – we now have three fish in our tank. They were named for some of my current favorite…

We’ve Been Pepplered

Wade and I only met the Peppler family a couple of times during the house buying process. It probably isn’t a fair evaluation, but we decided we don’t like them. The more and more issues we find with the house (all little things) only cements our feelings. To this end we have created a new…

Painting Peanut Butter

Wade and I woke up before everyone else and went to early church. We came home to find the girls playing in the tree house and “building campfires”. We puttered around the house and then the girls wanted to help Wade paint his office. He had bought paint with the name “Peanut Butter”. They had…

Family Time

The girls got up around 7:45 am so we all got up then. We made chocolate chip muffins for breakfast and then set up to decorate the sugar cookies we made last night. We were almost done when Anthony returned from Madison. The five of us piled into the car for a trip to the…
