I have been thinking a lot about my time as a homemaker, lately. I’ve been feeling tired and dejected in my work. I try giving myself pep talks to get back on track, but they have not been working. I’m not as fast as I used to be when it comes to cleaning my house.…… Continue reading Purging Again.
Closet Space for Ellie
With our daughter moving back in with us we have to figure out ways to incorporate two households into one. Closets are non-existent in our basement and we don’t really want to build permanent structures when she may be moving back out on her own in 1-5 years. While perusing YouTube for DIY portable closets,…… Continue reading Closet Space for Ellie

DIY Drawer Dividers
Christine Kobzeff has a great tutorial on how to make your own fancy drawer dividers. I can’t see putting this much trouble into my husband’s drawers. I’ll just buy black foam board for him. He’s easy! But for me… I totally love the pink and black damask. This woman is super thrifty. Drawer dividers are…… Continue reading DIY Drawer Dividers

Politicians are like bathroom drains
This morning I cleaned my bathroom drains under the sinks. They were getting really sluggish. I can’t remember the last time I cleaned them out… Maybe three or four years ago. They’re gross. All that hair, soap scum, shaving cream, greasy turned gooey makeup remover. Yuck! Anyway, while taking them apart and cleaning, I realized…… Continue reading Politicians are like bathroom drains
I whined posted the other day about not being able to manage my time properly. I started a new job in June… one that actually pays me to work. My ‘free’ time has actually become quite scarce and I find myself being utterly disgusted by the fact that I MUST clean the house in my…… Continue reading Burn
