Monday Giveaway Linky – Back After an Extended Absence Edition

Sooooooo. Haven’t done the linky in….way too long. I apologize. Seems like things this summer just got too busy. I’ve had many articles in my head, things I wanted to share with you. But life got in the way, and I just haven’t been able to be at my keyboard the way I want to. […]

Monday Giveaway Linky – Exhausted but Done Edition

Don’t worry dads, I plan to address you next month. So! Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you have a wonderful one. I already got to sleep in […]

And by “renovating” I mean: removing all fixtures, every scrap of drywall and flooring, and starting from scratch. The demo part of the job started out like gangbusters. We were making great progress. The boys really enjoyed […]
