Hello y’all!

Have been back at work for a week now. Gosh, I forgot how much FUN it is!! Getting up early, working all day, coming home exhausted, flopping into bed early. And then best of all, I get to do it all over again the next day! Woohoo!!!

I’m in rather hot water with my hubby, whom I left at home with the flooring project to complete. Actually, all he had to do was WATCH the installers and of course, move around some of the furniture. Okay, okay, sweetie … I know the piano is heavy!!

By the time I came home each afternoon, the guys were wrapping up their day of installing and all I had to do was figure out where I wanted my furniture (something I’m still working on!).

I took some pics for y’all, but because I’m so tired (or lazy) there are no clever captions under them. You’re big girls (and boys) and can probably figure out what you’re looking at.

One disclaimer as a preface: The house was/is still a mess in parts (you’ll notice the vacuum sitting pretty like a piece of furniture, dust on the floors from the installation, books stacked on the hearth, etc.).

Please disregard and simply rejoice with me in how lovely the new flooring is! 🙂

Love and hugs to all.

Till next time! 🙂

Hey y’all!

Lots happening in my world lately. Had a great 5 week checkup (post hysterectomy) and was cleared to do “all the shopping” I wanted. Or at least that’s what the doctor said … ask my hubby and you’ll probably get a different response.

Sooooo, while in Temple for my doctor’s appt, I barnstormed the GW bargain barn. Woohoo! Spent a grand total of $10 and got lots o’ loot! Pictures below.

Am in the process of getting new flooring in my house and it seems we’re hitting speed bumps at every corner. I’m reserving judgment on Home Depot until the project is complete. Stay tuned for my verdict.

With that said, I am supposed to be clearing things out of the house and garage, instead of buying more stuff. Yikes. Hubby thinks I’ve gone off the deep end with my junk shopping, but I’m growing weary of discussing his issues. 😉

ANYways, in an effort to clear out the garage so we’ll have some storage space for the furniture during the flooring installation (got all that?), I had an impromptu mini-yard sale Saturday morning (yes, I obtained the obligatory city permit … thanks, City of Killeen for the $5 charge). I missed the copy deadline for the classified ad, but sweet-talked a young man named Rodney into accepting my order anyway.

The upshot is, we cleared out/sold a lot of old junk (which hubby was kind enough to remind me that I had bought at other yard sales) … and so now we have some breathing room in our garage.

We’ll see how long that lasts …

Okay, enough drivel. Enjoy the pics!
