I just wanted to spend my week reading For the Love under a blanket, laughing at how very real Jen Hatmaker is. Her description of being 40 and also spicy families were so completely true for me, as well.
Instead I had to help do this. Leaking toilets and soggy floors can not wait.
How's that for being real? But rest assured, we have a toilet again and a strong floor under it, just no floor covering yet. For the record, my husband and I are not natural DIY'ers. We do it ourselves to save money, but it takes us probably 3 times as long as a professional would. (Maybe more.)
In the midst of that, my 9 year old daughter just HAD to have fall decorations hung up and set out. The house is a mess, my roof is still unfinished, the bathroom was torn up, but we decorated.
After all that, and some rough attempts at homeschooling (not hitting all our subjects very well) I got this reward.
That was one week down. Now to just finish the roof and get the house looking clean and pretty enough to fit in with the fall decorations.
I hope you're enjoying your fall!
