And more.


I do have to say the last week has been a pain. But we are almost there. Exhausted and sore we are resting today as it is supposed to rain.
We have gotten almost everything done. Paint wise that is 
Now as we paint I’m seeing all the other things we must do to make our storybook home what we want it to be.
I’ve also realized that all this work has kick started in me a.level of activity my body isn’t used to. And probably shouldn’t continue for too much longer.
I’m exhausted. I’m sore. I hurt in places I didn’t even know I had.
But it’s almost there.



The painting


OK let get something straight. I’m a big girl. Quite strong. But scraping before painting ones house is a pain in the ass.
I had hired some one to do it but Alas they never showed up.
So hubby  and I have been scraping an 80 year old garage for 2 days.

At the moment it is 102 degrees here. No humidity. The paint is drying on the brush .

So it is going to take a week to paint instead of someone else doing it in 2 days.

Moral of my story.

If and when you buy a house, please find a good, honest, reliable , and affordable handyman  or woman.
Believe me ,the little expense in the long run will be worth it.

We begin again.


So I started this blog over a year ago to bitch about life and so on. 

I decided to reinvent myself and my blog to show a happy content small town life , and all that crap. 

I do have a content life. It’s great living somewhere I know almost everyone. I’m sure in a couple more years I will know everyone. 


We are still working on the house we bought in November.  Who knew how much remodeling would take? Yes yes , I’m sure you all did. Well we have never owned a house we could remodel. So here we are. .

So today I sit here waiting for the guys to come scrape and paint my house. And I’m waiting. 

I also have a water heater to pick up. 

But the real reason behind this blog is my dishwasher. 

I’m sure some of you know you must clean your dishwasher. That thing gets disgustingly dirty. I mean think what you put into it. 

Now I cleaned mine yesterday and I have to say it looks and smells better. 

So I decided to do this blog so I can wade in and do the things you  all don’t want to or don’t know how to. That way I break my stuff figuring it out for you. 

So let me know if there’s something you need to know. I’m sure I can figure it out. Or break something trying.
