First, I MUST give a big thanks to my friend Kate for the title of this blog! You would think that with all of those "Mouse" and "Pig" and "Dog" books laying around my house and all those hammers laying around my house, too, I would have been able to come up with the title on my own.
I have four kids, we're moving, trying to sell our home, working full time and going to grad school for my MBA.
MY BRAIN NO WORKIE!
So, thanks Kate! And know that when you give Mommy's friend a hammer, she's gonna do some work, too!
Here we are. We're moving. To a Nu to Us house. And we are so freaking excited that I feel like it's better than Christmas Eve at 2am when you KNOW Santa came and you just can't go and look yet.
And we're broke.
Like just about everyone else.
Not to get all political and all but we ARE the 99%.
Moving on....and closer to civilization.
Right now, until around mid-February, we live just next to the border of Canada.
Heh. No we don't. We live in Sussex NJ and if you know anything about NJ you know that Sussex might as well be just next to the border of Canada.
I don't need to regale you with the story of how we got here, just know that we had hoped it would end differently and it's not and now we're moving and that's a REALLY GOOD THING.
We're moving to a house that's a bit smaller than what we're in now but it has a HUGE basement and a big backyard and HOA fees that ACTUALLY get us something good. We're moving out of something that was brand new when we bought it to something that is more than 30 years old and needs to be updated.
And I am SUPER DUPER excited about that. For serious.
So, here's what we're going to cover....any aspect of home redesign and remodel and living that I feel like covering!
I have ideas. I have Pinterest. I have paint brushes and most importantly, I have my hammer.
And we're going to get moving!
