Pinterest Party Friday #98


Happy Friday everyone!!! It's been beautiful here this week! I am so in love with Spring! All of the flowers are blooming and everything is green again. This weekend I plan on finishing-up a secretary I have been working on forever, and Topher will be spraying some bookshelves that we have had in hoard storage for eons ... if the weather cooperates. The unnamed child is getting last minute things ready for prom next weekend, and next week I will be running around picking-up her dress from … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!!! It has been one long week! I spent most of mine in the hospital this week, still trying to resolve this whole kidney thing. 8,000 IV sticks, and probably a million hospital bills later, we still have no true diagnosis. I'm trying to figure out who to go to next. I'm running a fever, burning up so much I soak through my PJ's, massive fatigue, and pain right where my kidney is.  2 weeks ago, the CAT Scans showed swelling and that my kidney was a little misshapen but now … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone! If you have been wondering where I have disappeared to this week, it's been the hospital. I was in and out of the ER Fri-Sunday with the most horrendous kidney pain. I was finally admitted on Monday and ended-up having surgery where they put in a stent. Now it turns out I am having more pain with the stent in and am meeting with my surgeon this afternoon to decide if we are going to remove it, and if so what to do next. So while I've been writhing with pain for the … [Read more...]

Happy Friday guys! We had a couple of nice days over Spring Break this week, but the rest have been cold and rainy. At least this year it didn't snow! We are going prom dress shopping this weekend, and I can already hear my bank account screaming for mercy, but since she will be graduating early next year, this will be her only prom, so at least we will only have to go through this once. Honestly, though, I am excited to help her pick something glitzy out. We are also going to visit my … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #93


Happy Friday everybody!! I have been such a happy person this week with temps in the low 70's. The pups have been taken on multiple walks, I've had a spray paint assembly line going on, and the unnamed child even whipped out the ol' bikini and laid outside in the sun with Charlie. The kiddo has been on the internet non-stop since she was asked to prom on Wednesday. I'm really happy that she's going, but this isn't going to be cheap my friends. Some of these dresses online cost more than my … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #92


Happy Friday everyone!!! I'm pretty proud to say that for the last 2 weeks, I have been working out 5 days a week. For Lent, instead of giving something up (since I couldn't think of any certain thing that would be a sacrifice to give up) I decided to force myself to work out 5 days a week. You would think after two weeks of working out religiously that I wouldn't hate doing it anymore. Unfortunately that is not the case. Every single day, I dread it as much as the day before, and I have … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everybody!!! I don't know what the weather is like where you're at, but here it is freaking cold! Saturday it is supposed to snow, which will be replaced Sunday with freezing rain. The unnamed child is praying for a snow day Monday. I can't believe we have yet to have one this year! We are having a sleepover here with my 18 month old niece tonight. I am busy today going around baby-proofing the house and dragging out all of the toys we store for her here. I will also be … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #89


Happy Friday everyone!! The unnamed child is off from school today, so my day will be half spent painting and half spent hanging out watching movies with her. I'm guessing she will spend the first half of the day with me since her friends don't wake up until 1:00PM, and then I'm ushered out the door. It's so difficult raising them to be self-sufficient, and going from the center of their universe to just a small part of it once they are "grown" and have gained some independence -- although … [Read more...]

Happy Friday everyone!!! As we speak I am having new carpet installed! Yay!!! You have no idea how badly it was needed. For the last week, we have been moving all of the furniture in the basement to the upper floor, ripping up carpet, and finding new homes for all of my "to do" pieces of furniture. Not so fun. I am working like crazy finishing up a desk for a client, and then I'm starting on a ginormous china cabinet that I don't want to have to haul back down the stairs again. It … [Read more...]

Pinterest Party Friday #87


Happy Friday everyone!!! My New Year's resolution was to get back to eating healthy and start hauling my butt back to the gym ... just like everyone else in America.  Unfortunately, a couple of days after Christmas I came down with the worst case of strep throat ever, which lasted for over two freaking weeks -- during which I thought I was going to die. Now that I am finally well again, I decided this would be the week I would start on my goal. This week has been full of time logged at … [Read more...]
