for the builder to send me the estimate. It could take weeks so I'm trying to be patient. I've almost decided that I don't care what number he gives me - I'll tell him to start now, because that means he won't start for 6 more months anyway. I can feel myself aging by the minute, I swear.

Meanwhile, to purge my anxiety and ward off any depression I'm cruising Etsy again.
This! to go with my other turtle? What do you think? ha
Most of my art purchases for this house lean toward the absurd - I always have the 6 kids in mind when I pick something to hang by the beds. Is it something that will make them think of a story? (And yet not too obscene like Peg the Mermaid.....)

and then I got sucked into buying some more fabric that I may or may not need. So I'm back on restriction from Etsy.

EDITED: okay I broke down and bought this:
and then this:
Because my kids love Finding Nemo and I decided to scare them by hiding this in the acrylic crayon holder. muhahahhaha

I just need to wear my flip flops again, and I'll be okay...

Welcome to my three ring circus. Cake? Tequila? Pardon me while I cut this lumber and yell at my kids for the 100th time --

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!
