Back home...

I have returned from my 2 weeks away from home and have been thrown immediately into the reality of home the last few days! :-) I have lots of blog material and will have more with Thanksgiving already among us. Bear with me another few days and I will be back to my daily posts! Thanks for your support and may your family have a fantastic turkey day.....

Well it is complete and it only took five trips to the dump. No more white tile. Cannot wait to see the new tile down, you all are going to love it.

Well time for the next step in the mudroom remodel. Ripping up the tiles. I definitely have to say these come up much easier than they went down. Oh and BOOMER SOONER!!!!

Project Picture #4.....

Oh I wonder. Honey did you say to wash off the wallpaper or rip it off the wall? Well you can see what I did.

All finished, nice messy no wallpaper walls. I wonder what color these will end up being?

Project Picture #3....

And there it goes. I bet it came down a lot easier than it went up.

Project Picture #2....

Back to the mudroom remodeling project. Stripping wallpaper now. Of course a 1 day job turns into a multi-day affair when you remember that the wallpaper your stipping was put down over the original wallpaper that is ATTACHED DIRECTLY TO THE WALLBOARD!!!!!

Why me????

Here is a post just for the Mommy dog, pics of the little Ellen.

This is a standard sleeping position.

Who couldn't love a face like this?

This is what we do around our house when Mommy is not home. Slave driver Daddy makes the little girl do her homework.

And then he takes her to dance practice. Quite the bunch of rump shakers!!!

Every 4 years...

I get the privilege as a citizen of the USA to vote. Today was that day! It will be a historical election for lots of reasons but it was probably the first time in the 7 Presidential elections that I have had the honor to cast my vote in that I was less then pleased with my choices. I hope that whoever is the new President tomorrow when I wake will do a good job and prove my doubts wrong.
