Closet Cleanup

Since NavyGuy returned from deployment, our bedroom closet has steadily gone downhill.  I’m not blaming him entirely; thought he’s responsible for some of it, it’s also a question of space, hangars, and a poor layout of shelves. And then there’s also this little situation… Unacceptable.  And irritating as all get out.  But again, not entirely […]

Worth the Wait

Since the day we moved into this house almost a year and a half ago, I’ve been telling NavyGuy we need a medicine cabinet in the master bathroom.  There were a sufficient number of drawers for our other bathroom items, but just no good place for bandaids and drugs and whatnot.  So we were keeping […]

Driveway Debacle Continued

Yup – it’s still not done.  Here’s where we left off: And here’s where we are as of yesterday: A casual observer may say, “hey, that doesn’t look so bad!  What’s she whining about?” But, that’s not drive-able.  The alley entrance is sort of okay, provided I get a good running start at it, but […]

Back to Business as Usual

(Or as usual as it ever gets around here.) So my crazy-travel-to-every-corner-of-this-great-country-June-2010-adventure is over.  Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nevada, Florida, and back to Washington in between most of the trips – super awesome, but admittedly, incredibly exhausting for this old fart.  The first month of NavyGuy’s deployment flew by, but now it’s time to settle into a […]

Cheers and Jeers

Jeers… to the driveway still being a nuclear disaster area.  There seems to have been some work done while I was gone, but I’d be hard pressed to explain what the city did for three days. Jeers… to the mound of dishes that didn’t get done before I left for Wisconsin.  They’ve now been sitting […]

Deployment Beginnings Pt. 3

So first there were stray people and cats.  Then, there were more cats. And finally, the third day of deployment.  (I know – this all happened within the first three days and thank goodness it’s been somewhat less ridiculous since then.)  I had taken Mrs. Midget to the airport in Seattle at the butt-crack of […]

Art on the Walls / Etsy Find

Putting pictures and artwork up on the walls freaks me out.  I’ve been storing all of our framed photos and art under the guest bed in the hopes that somehow I’ll magically figure out how to arrange everything on our walls, looking as stylish and well-put-together as the rooms in Real Simple or Better Homes […]

Snoop Part 2: The Reveal

Check out Part 1 of the Snoop book here, or just check out the following photos that give you a “snoop” into my life: The paper hub of the house – my desk off the kitchen.  If you click on the photo you’ll be able to see The Office Page a Day Calendar, an Arizona […]

Snoop!

Recently, I finished reading a book called Snoop; What Your Stuff Says About You by Sam Gosling.  Gosling is an associate professor of psychology and has spent much of his career studying what people’s offices, bedrooms, music collections, and other personal items say about them.  The book is an unofficial guide to snooping – it […]

Reader Question, Answered

Keep your questions coming here! BeeHive asked: Do you ever miss Pensacola? Great question! The answer is yes, and no. There are tons of things I definitely don’t miss, including (but not limited to), sweet tea, Southern accents, the oppressive heat and humidity, bugs, fear of hurricanes, and more sweet tea. Yet, I’ve realized there […]
