We took this picture about a week after my son was born, well after 9/11 as you can see. However, it is very different than I remember it. I was born in NJ, but raised in GA from 3rd grade through college. I moved back to Jersey in 1988, but... Continue reading

I'm so sorry that I have been absent for a while! I have been doing a lot of soul searching lately. I love re-doing furniture but need to find a purpose as my house was pretty much set for furniture and was becoming an addiction that I needed to stop... Continue reading

I am so glad you posted this. I really needed to know it is ok to lose our patience. I have always felt it is best to apologize to our kids when we mess up to let them know we are human too. Everyone messes up and we still love them for it. However, this week, I did it at work. I was on a conf. call and a group of people stood next to my area having a meeting...a very loud meeting. I got up and walked over there and loudly informed them that I was on a conf call if they could quiet down. Later, I felt horrible for my actions and had to go and apologize to the group of people that I had spoken to like that. Most people don't apologize for their actions and I think it is so important to apologize. Thank you so much for sharing!

OK, so it has been a while since I posted last. It is so hard to fit projects into work, family, t-ball, and life. You know? Well, some time ago, I bought a beautiful desk off Craigslist thinking it would make the perfect vanity for my bedroom. However, I got... Continue reading

Yes, I said it...FREE!!! A while ago, while my husband was still active duty, the Post Office advertised to Military wives that we could get shipping boxes delivered to our homes for free. I ordered a lot, as my goal was to ship to my husband every week while he... Continue reading

Let me ask you a question.... When you get someone to finally come to read your blog and you post something that you found on another blog (i.e., a link) do you want that person to leave your blog permanently or temporarily? Personally, I would only want them to leave... Continue reading

Today, I went on a Craigslist excursion. I found a gentleman on Craigslist who was willing to GIVE me something like 20 antique windows that he took out of a building on his property. It actually ended up being closer to 30 windows. Boy do I have my work cut... Continue reading

I have to tell you all about my misfortune and how it turned out to be amazing! I am a huge Craigslist fan and shop for everything imaginable on there. Recently, I found a Sizzix Big Shot with about 20 texture plates for $55. Well, I jumped at the chance... Continue reading

My daughter turned 21 yesterday. Originally, she wanted to have 3 friends over and have an evening of making sushi at home while listening to Japanese music and then to watch horror movies on the big screen TV. Her friends bailed! So, instead, I got some family friends over and... Continue reading
