I Don’t Hate Painting Furniture Anymore

On Painting Bedrooms and Dying Hamsters

I wrote this post two days after our hamster died. I preface this post with that statement because I don't want you all to worry about me. Sobbing about a dead hamster two weeks later.

Family Cave Makeover

  When Ella was born, my mom came from central Illinois to spend two weeks helping me adjust to baby-hood again. At the time, it was a survival technique. It was January, really cold in these here parts. It was dreary, and dark at four in the afternoon in these here parts. Mike was working… Continue reading Family Cave Makeover
