Back to Work Day

Yes, it was back to the ol’ grind for Harry and me today. Ok, enough said about that!! In love

I may have mentioned a couple weeks ago that we got a coupon from Home Depot for 12 months with no interest for a purchase over $299 (yeah, like that number is hard to reach Thinking smile). So yesterday, we headed over to pick up the rest of the items we need for the improvements that we want to finish up in the house over the winter months.

This isn’t a great picture – I had to turn the light off in order to take it, but I think you will get the idea…

You may remember our kitchen remodel back in February (9 months ago already!) – well, the only piece not redone was the light fixture, which is just a little, ummm, shall we say, outdated?





This is the replacement…






We are also replacing the flooring in the two bathrooms,


and the faucet and shower fixtures in the downstairs bathroom…


That is the last, yes LAST, of the purchases we need to make for the house for our planned improvements. (Other than a few gallons of paint which I don’t count, since we will buy them as we need them.)

I can see it – the light at the end of the tunnel – it’s just a little brighter!!! Open-mouthed smile


  1. glad your light is getting brighter!!..ours is still pretty dim!

  2. We replaced most all of the 'bulb' fixtures in our RV with florescent lights. Wish we'd had a coupon like that! :)

  3. I have a similar fixture in the hallway. We were going to make a family photo wall - never happened.
    We are now working through cosmetic improvement at the request of our Realtor. Every room will be the same color. She said this makes the house look like a neutral palette. I think it makes the house BORING. At the same time, we are working on RV Mods to make our new home like we want it. I'll be happy when I have only one home to work on. If you find an extra coupon, please send it my way. They know my name in that store.

  4. That post brought back memories (not so fond). Hang in there, you'll get it all done!
