No, I’m not dead…

Hello everyone!

I know, I disappeared after my steroid injection post, but they didn’t kill me or anything! (I’m actually going to get the second one today. Yikes!)

I am sorry for the radio silence over the last few weeks, we’ve just had a lot going on! Some was just personal stuff, but on top of that we started getting the house ready for a sibling group we thought we were going to get from foster care, but that fell through, and now we have a completely different placement…

So a lot of transitioning going on in my home! Which means a lot of randomness and sporadic posting here.

I do hope to at least get caught up on reviews and my other planned posts over the next couple weeks and then hopefully get back to normal and fully open up to review requests again soon!

In the meantime, I just wanted to pop in quickly to say hi! I’ve missed all my blogging world peeps! Hope all is well with you!!

When we moved into our house two years ago, almost every room upstairs was covered in wallpaper. I’m not a wallpaper person…. Seeing it makes me cringe.
So naturally, the first thing we did before moving in was remove wallpaper. We managed to get every room except for the bathroom and kitchen done.
Yes, that right… two years later it’s still there! We have done absolutely nothing to either of those rooms! (Which is odd because, at the time, they were the two I felt needed addressed immediately.)
Apparently enough time had past since my previous wallpaper removal project that, yesterday, I had this brilliant thought…

Why am I living with this stuff? The bathroom, it’s so small…I can get the wallpaper down today and paint tomorrow.  Oh look, Lowe’s has tile on sale for cheap.  I’ll have this whole bathroom done by Wednesday…

Note to Self: Must watch more TV in order to understand your life.

I think I’ve mentioned it before, but we don’t have cable… we also don’t have a whole lot of time.
Our evenings are filled with a lot of running around like chickens with their heads off cut, homework, headless chicken mimicking,  me pretending I’m a taxi driver, and sometimes…  headless chicken mimicking (no offense intended to headless chickens).
