Sometimes people make “cute” look so effortless! Jeeze…

Well peeps, it’s -40c here and ice fog is surrounding my work place so thickly, you can’t see anything. Why we are still open is beyond me. Seriously. What farmer in his right mind is going to be needing tractor parts in weather like this??

I should have phoned in and said my truck wouldn’t start. Dangit. Why didn’t I think of this earlier?

I’ll have new pictures of the kitchen this evening. You wouldn’t believe what we (aka: Hubby) has accomplished! I just about pee my pants every time I walk into the kitchen. I can’t believe it’s really mine, really just about finished and really so amazing. Wow. I seriously feel SO blessed!

So this is where we’re at with the house now! It’s really coming along, and we’re so excited! It’s all closed in, which is the most important part at this point. The cold Canadian winter is coming soon. And by ‘soon’ I mean it snowed last night….

Soon we’ll be doing the electrical, insulation, drywalling….and the list continues.

It’s getting really stressful because the kitchen is torn up, there’s dust and dirt everywhere. Half my kitchen drawers and other storage are in the other room, stacked on top of each other. It’s making things challenging. But we’re trying to keep the end result in mind, the wonderful kitchen full of storage. And it’ll be here soon!

My hubby is doing so good, working so hard every night and hardly even taking weekends off. He’s amazing and I’m so lucky to be married to someone so hard working!

I’m a two-timin’ blogger! I have two blogs going now…as if I don’t have enough to fill my time 😀

I love to write though, and I started this little ditty of a blog for a fictional character, Kitty. I thought it would be a cool way to write a story.

See what you think!

Other than that, life has been busy with Arbonne…my business is growing like I didn’t think was possible! I’m SO excited to see it expanding and  growing into my goals. It’s really cool to know that soon I’ll be able to quit my day job (or at least replace my income)!

The house is coming along too, windows and doors are in, sub floor is layed, roof is fully finished. We’re working on the electrical now and then we’ll be on to insulation (which is important, considering we’ve already had a snowfall!) and drywalling. Woo!! Pictures to come, I promise!!

House Renos

Well, it turns out that nagging your husband works….and then you suffer because of it, haha.

We’re finally getting going on our new kitchen! I’d been constantly presenting Hubby with ideas on a new kitchen, pictures, floor plans, color combos…the threat to never have children. Haha, just joking with that one. But the truth is, we wouldn’t have been able to have more than one child in this house if we didn’t do something about the kitchen.

So finally Hubby sees the light and we start demolishing our kitchen and boot room. Now, our bootroom is gone and our kitchen has shrunk, there’s mud and dust everywhere. There’s also been a few thunderstorms since we took the roof off, which means we’ve been getting up at 2:30am to make sure the tarp is secured. Fun times!

But if we keep focused on the end result, it’s all down hill from here!

The foundation is being poured this afternoon (it’s more advanced than this picture…), cabinets and counter-tops will be ordered this next week, as soon as I can make sure the drawers and cupboards are where I will find them handy.

I’ll be posting pictures of the cupboards, counter-tops and paint chips as soon as I can!

We’re on our way!
