How to Set Up Your Home Office to Make the Work More Enjoyable

A few months ago we had a new normal to get used to around here: my hubby started working from home full time! For us, the flexibility that offers is perfect with two little ones, but we’ve had some challenges, too. Like, keeping two little ones fairly quiet during the day so daddy can work! But one of the big things that has helped all the way around is giving him his own office space in which to function.

Prepping & Cleaning Your Home For A New Puppy

***SIGH*** You guys. We got a new dog.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here on the blog yet, but about a month ago, we lost our Taffy girl.

She’s another rescue. She’s about a year old, from what we know. She has the sweetest disposition, but still she spent her first week with us destroying the house. Cue doggy school to learn some manners. She’s doing much better now!

The Struggles of a Homeowner

What’s the hardest thing about being a homeowner?

For me, it’s the enormous amount of work that goes into keeping the property in order. From maintenance to fixing whatever appliance or home system breaks down (which they all do no matter how well you take care of them). And the worst of it all is that you need to find and contact a dozen contractors and repair shops to get the issue fixed. Today the repair industry is so huge that you pretty much need a separate contractor for every little thing.
