Mmmmmm… coffee.

Right now my son is chasing one of our dogs. He’s screaming at the top of his lungs “OOOOGA BOOOGA BOOOGA!” and they’re both having a ball. My two year old daughter is standing next to me, crying because she can’t find Woody’s hat. My husband, freshly home from his business trip, seems to be hiding upstairs.

It’s 7:56am.

I have already changed a diaper, doled out juice and some food, cleaned dog pee off the floor, emptied two garbage cans, put on a load of laundry, bickered with my husband about a house he’s in love with that I do NOT want to pursue, and poured a cup of coffee that remains untouched.

Did I mention it’s 7:56am?

My coffee is now cold.

In a few moments I will get the kids dressed, pack my son’s school bag and race them out the door. My coffee will likely still be right where it is now, untouched. I never get to drink my coffee! It drives me nuts! Every time I sit down there is a crisis… an injury, a complaint, a spill, an injustice… something that forces me to pop back up and referee/clean/kiss or fix the problem.

Anyway, in honour of my love of coffee, and in light of how rarely I get to actually ENJOY it, I have a giveaway today for you, my lovely readers. Yes, that’s right! My first giveaway! I’m so excited, and I hope you’ll come check it out.

Summertime!

So, apparently I’m taking the summer off from blogging. Whoops! That wasn’t planned… I’m just so busy with three kids at home. There is soccer (a total of five times a week between two of the kids!), trips, family events and LOTS of work around the house. We are only about three weeks into summer […]

Furniture Makeovers – a year in review

Happy Saturday, everyone! I have a fun post for you today… I had a recent request that I thought was pretty fun… someone commented asking if I could please do a post that highlighted all the furniture that I made over while on my year-long blogging hiatus! Cool idea, right? In the year that passed […]

Old House

Hello again…

Remember me? If not, that’s okay… I understand.  It’s been about a year, after all! When we left off last October, I was taking a break from blogging to work on my furniture refinishing business, which has been amazing. I love painting so much, and even though it was nearly impossible to make it work […]
