My hubby is busy as a bee in the basement today.

He’s prepping the floor by laying this grey bubble plastic stuff followed by 5/8″ wood planks then he’ll be laying the cork flooring!!! Man a lot goes into the stuff underneath what you walk on!!

His dad is still on his honeymoon in the US but he’ll be back sometime next week so the pressure is on and has never been greater to get our living / kitchen space finished so that we can officially move out of Dad’s portion of this family duplex of ours!! I’m so looking forward to that day!

It’s been a long long time coming. We all moved in here back in August 2005 – sharing the kitchen, living room and dining room ever since but soon I’ll have my very own kitchen, my very own living room and my very own dining room!!!


and screaming all at the same time as I realize that finishing our space means I have to unpack this room……


I'm the Cool Mom of 4, Married to the Preacher Man, but at times I'm a little more Sass than Saint!
