How ugly can sheet vinyl be?
- Published on Tuesday, 22 January 2013
Authors: GiGiOur Au Pair arrives in just over a month.
Since we have a tiny flat and one bathroom, we're building her a small bathroom of her own in the rumpus room. Photos to come. The room is so small the photos I have taken make no sense b/c I can't get a good angle.
This is not a project I'm excited about. There's hardly any...
On having two boys
- Published on Sunday, 20 January 2013
Authors: GiGiI'm going to be the mom of boys.
This is it for us - I wont do pregnancy again, and Bubbs and I are just too sensitive and enjoy adult life just a little too much to go through infancy after this round. We believe really strongly in attachment parenting, but that stuff will suck the life right out of you, so once this...
Major Fixer Upper - Lessons Learned
- Published on Friday, 11 January 2013
Authors: GiGiOur riverhouse need significant work. SIGNIFICANT.
Lemme just say, I'm super excited. Can't wait to start using it. Can't wait.
It is sort of falling down and has holes in it. It has an electrical panel that was recalled in the 70's because it blew up. It is on a hill in a forest.
There are drop ceilings that...
Our Lazy Christmas
- Published on Sunday, 30 December 2012
Authors: GiGiI'm pregnant.
And T has like two weeks off school.
Which means that I'm scrambling to find care for him while I work, get the holidays together, and figure everything out.
Plus, we got home from our vacation when half of December was over, so my usual crafting just didn't happen.
We tried to drive up to Sebastopol to cut...
I did it! I made Biscuits!
- Published on Sunday, 30 December 2012
Authors: GiGiMy husband is from the south.
His mother makes these yeast rolls that are amazing. I've tried SEVERAL times to make them and have failed miserably each time. I've given up at this point.
I kept thinking that making biscuits would be easier. There's like 4 ingredients, no steps, and all the reviews on all the sites...
Ikea Nasum Boxes - Ugh.
- Published on Friday, 21 December 2012
The baskets in this picture? Nasum baskets from Ikea.
They were amazing. Sturdy, deep, non-offensive. The "straw" sometimes came unraveled, but we really liked them. They held all of T's clothes, cloth diapers, wipes, toys, etc. When he pulled them out of the slot they were light - so it didn't hurt him...
Sunnyhouse is ours!
- Published on Friday, 14 December 2012
Authors: GiGiThere's no going back now!
We closed yesterday.
We're heading up that way tomorrow to cut down a Christmas Tree and get our keys. I'm 6 months pregnant - do you think it is wise to start ripping up carpet and tearing down acoustic tiles in my condition?
I'm so looking forward to hot summer nights at the river.
Walking away from our leaking house
- Published on Friday, 07 December 2012
Authors: GiGiAs this
(water soaking our garage)
Were happening to our house...
We were here
Completely ignoring it.
Much like the crappy paint job the previous owners put on the inside of the house before they moved, they also did a crappy exterior paint job before we bought it. The paint all around the house (2 years after we...
This __ close to total chaos
- Published on Sunday, 25 November 2012
Authors: GiGiAt this point there's only one thing standing in our way - apparently this house may not be insurable by our normal insurance agents so we have to find high risk agents. It might be due to the fact that it is over 100 years old, in the forest, and has 1/2 a foundation.
Hopefully we can find someone to insure it until we can do...
It is like groundhog day over here
- Published on Sunday, 18 November 2012
Authors: GiGiJust as life gets a little crazier, we decide to make it more crazy.
Our disaster is now almost 6 months more disastrous. We've put three DIFFERENT offers on the house, been rejected three times, become so fricken frustrated with Fannie Mae, but decided to play their game because after hunting for quite some time - this is our...
