Reading this...really loving it...the house is red brick and women seem to stumble upon it when they need to and they are allowed to stay for 99 days because that's all it should take to get your life back in order and beautiful white hired Peg is in charge and she makes creamy thick hot cocoa and there is an invisible cat named Mog whom you can feel but not see and this is Peg's last year...but to find out what this is her last year of you should read this book...whew! Oh and apparently what you need appears in your room...Alba..for example...went to bed in an empty room and woke up surrounded by books!

Springy new quilt and pillow shams...I have now totally succeeded making our room as pink and girly as it can be...Den was away so he hasn't even seen it Roxie and Lucy love it...

Dinner tonight...I need a Welcome Home dinner for Dennis...I think's a baked spaghetti from SIMPLY's sort of like a lasagna...the noodles are layered with cheeses and turkey Italian sweet I can make it this afternoon and be free to relax this evening.

After postponing our kitchen upgrade...we are actually doing it next week...perfect timing! Lucy and Roxie finally have a happy routine and there will be chaos everywhere. We have changed counter top colors no less than four times...changed our minds about the island four times...changed our minds about everything. This weekend will be our fourth time picking out sinks and faucets! Our island shelving has been in our contractor's garage for nearly two years...we move better than we redo stuff. Seriously...

Plus we will not have water or a cooktop for at least ten days...starting next Wednesday!

I have a stash of Groupons and I am overbuying throwaway plates, cups, etc. I can not even get my head around this!

Any ideas about how to make life liveable for ten days?

Happy Thursday!


  1. We move better than we redo too - that's why we rarely redo. We've lived here for 5 and a half years and I'm ready to move! lol

  2. I LOVE the pink upgrades! You go girl!

    And I'm intrigued by this book. Please please review it.

    1. I knew you would love the pink...I will let you know when I am done but you will love this it!

  3. I hope Den likes the new spring remodel. :)

    Your book sounds SO good! Have a great evening.

  4. I could never do our room in pink. It is definitely NOT Bill. We are pretty much the same on things like that: natural, neutral, and durable. The important thing is to agree...or at least tolerate well.

    1. Actually the draperies are blue...but I have a huge overstuffed pink and white ticking chair!

  5. I have never enjoyed living in a house while remodeling is happening....but I've done it. Not the kitchen, though. But there's always a way to live without a kitchen; you can microwave things in another room (I used to have a microwave upstairs in my bedroom, with a coffee pot, and a mini-fridge, so I wouldn't have to go downstairs! lol).

    A pink bedroom is lovely. I had a guest room in pink in that same house. My room usually has lots of red.

  6. I do believe I need that book and your dinner. Both look delicious!
    What a cool idea for a story. If only life were like that always.
