The Stone Saga

The good news is the guys laying the stone on our house are done!

The bad news is we are going to rip it all of. 

Yep.  Crappy, huh?

The truth is, the workers did a terrible job, were under-qualified, and it’s our fault for not seeing the red flags all along.

We were just too hopeful and didn’t want to face the reality. 

It’s a frustrating and expensive mistake, but we’re almost able to laugh about it.

So for a little while longer, our house is going to look like a train wreck.  I’m just thankful we are far enough back off the road that our neighbors can’t see how we’re really trashing up the hood.  Yep, we’re those neighbors.

Project: Organize those Christmas Cards

2013-01-02 14.50.31

I don’t know what ya’ll do with Christmas cards, letters and pictures from years past, but I just found I new way to keep them together and organized.  A hole-punch, a ring, and a piece of cardstock with the year on it was all it took.  I store them with my Christmas stuff, so every year at the beginning of the season we can reminisce and see how all our friends have grown. (How the children have grown, that is.  I won’t keep track of how the adults have grown sideways if you promise to do the same for me.)
