house renovations, Asst stuff and taking time for myself :)..




We finally got our extra bathroom put together (purchased everything in May/June 2015). When you have free help things get done when they cane.


It's been a week and we LOVE having the extra bathroom. It makes mornings quieter so the kids sleep in til 6:30/7 half the time now :) most days it was 6am!!


The basement family room painted up great as well. Dh put a ton of hours in down there (20 hours painting paneling over the course of a week).


We have a ceiling to paint and the floor again in the bathroom before the trim can get put up.


I've picked up some hours for my Virt Asst gig. (6 hours last week) and probably another 12-15 by the end of the month!! It def comes in waves :)


We got a deck for the back of the house for the labor of taking it down and $100 in deck screws and a few new boards. it's great 11x13 or so (over the concrete patio that was already there) DH did that in Nov and Dec because our weather was so great!!


Lack of overtime for DH has slowed down the extra being send to the truck loan (i mean like $10k less over the last 13 months). But i happily sent an extra $102 extra to principle today! I expect to send $200-300 extra a month from here on out!! And if there is a tax refund (doubtful it's pretty even now with so much less OT). that should head to the truck too!


Just trucking along. The kids are good :) DS has gotten his anxiety under control for the most part :) School is much less of a stress for him as of now.


I'm doing more for ME i was in a major funk Nov-early Jan! I am back to zumba twice a week and love it! I need to get back at the Y and want to check the dates on some 5ks for spring!!!

WE LOVE the extra bathroom!!  It's awesome!!!   Worth the wait!!


DH jokes he wants to move into the basement!, we could turn it into a bedroom if we wanted too at some point for us :)  But i doubt we would :)


It's nice usable space for when guests are over for dinners and stuff :0
