since we last talked…

since we last talked, it has been full-on crazy town at our house. my mom and brother were/are in town and as fun as it is to see family {no, really, i actually like mine}, it’s also total chaos. add to that the general holiday hubbub and the fact that the hubby and i hemorrhaged so much money it was like suze orman performing surgery, and you get the picture.

lucky sliced his foot good and needed some very expensive stitches. our car got new tires and a load of other stuff. {and as much as i complained about the cost? it’s like driving a new car.} molly got pancreatitis. on new year’s eve.

at one point, we had six adults, one baby, and three dogs in our two bedroom, one bathroom house. inflatable mattresses everywhere! and yes, you heard me, we survived despite having just one toilet {though i spent some anxious moments holding it}. it’s a good thing we all liked each other.

on new year’s day we emptied out our entire messy garage and painted the walls and reorganized. we re-hung the sliding garage doors that were dragging on the ground. it’s as much fun as you’re imagining, but with the satisfaction that comes from doing a job you’ve been putting off since you moved in.

also? i took my laptop back to apple for repairs {yes, again} and they gave me a brand spanking new one. just. like. that. i had my first sale at {not so sweet} sadie. my brother is still here, using his amazing cooking skills to feed us very, very well.

after all the excitement, i could use a little down time. and hopefully soon i’ll be getting more stuff in the shop{s}!
