I have great news, I finished Christmas decorating in my house! This year I got the Christmas spirit very early on; I wanted to start decorating on November 1st, but I decided to wait a little, at least till the middle of the month. On Wednesday I just could't take it anymore and I took … Continue reading I decided Christmas starts now
I think we all have that one thing in our house that we need to do, but we just never get around to doing it. For some it's fixing a window or a door, for others it's fixing a fan or changing a door handle. It's always something that we know we have to do … Continue reading More housework
This weekend I had a new project for my apartment. I didn't think anyone would be in the mood to help me set it up on Saturday night when I brought the kitchen island home, but my stepdad, who I won't name because he doesn't want me to talk about him on my blog, was … Continue reading My new kitchen island
It has officially been one year since I moved into my own apartment. Well, owned by my parents right next to their house, but it's mine. This is the first time I have a kitchen all to myself and no, I haven't set anything on fire, at least not yet. I think that's a very … Continue reading One year in my apartment
I didn't think about it, but writing this brings a lot of old feelings back. I can't help but look back at the last seven years of my life, at least what I can remember of them and the worst moments come to mind. From that very first memory that always makes me sad and … Continue reading Seven years later…
Last weekend I found one of the missing pieces for my apartment, the entertainment center. I wasn't really looking for it so desperately because I didn't know what I wanted and my TV was already hanging on the wall, but I did need somewhere to put the DVD and the cable connection. So I found … Continue reading Finally got my entertainment center!
This morning I woke up earlier than usual, even though I had a long day at work because today I had an appointment with my neurologist. It was just a routine checkup, to let him know how everything is going and of course I was very proud to tell him that, if everything keeps going … Continue reading Almost there!
I'm not much of a flowery girl and no flower we ever had in my house could ever survive more than a week, so I never even tried to plant anything or try to keep it alive. Now that we have a backyard, my stepdad took care of the gardening in the planter we have … Continue reading I think I’m going to try gardening
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a safe New Years Eve. I started the new year on the right foot doing small things like updating my calendar from December to January and changing my sheets. It's the little things that we do that make it all better. I haven't made any resolutions this year … Continue reading Happy 2019!
As we wait anxiously for the end of 2018 and celebrate the beginning of 2019, I was feeling positive and excited for this new beginning. I was baking brownies for everyone when I couldn't answer what I was being asked. I understood the question, it was how long We had to bake the brownies but … Continue reading Last post of 2018
Last night, after four months, I finally had a proper house warming party in my apartment. It wasn't a lot of people but it was a great excuse to see and get my friends from high school together again, at least some of them. We were so happy to see each other and started trying … Continue reading Housewarming
Happy belated Thanksgiving everybody! I hope you all had a nice day with your family, friends and/or loved ones. As I had mentioned in a previous post, my parents were hosting Thanksgiving, which meant I would have to host too and officially welcome people into my new apartment. I did everything I could to keep … Continue reading Our first Thanksgiving
A few weeks ago, during a trip to Home Depot, we bought the kitchen cabinet handles for my kitchen. Between our busy life during the week and one thing or another during weekends, we really didn't have time to put them on the doors. I did have time to unscrew a door and screw it … Continue reading We’re still decorating
Since I last told you about my apartment, I had just painted my bathroom door. I'm not sure but I think that was the last big thing I had done, besides cleaning. It was the last thing until yesterday when I finally got a dining room table! It's not that big, which is perfect because … Continue reading My dining room table!
Having an apartment all to myself is a lot of work, more work than I thought. I knew that after all the work we did this summer it wouldn't be over yet, I still needed to do somethings to finish, like painting my bathroom door. I had been avoiding that for days because something always … Continue reading Painting and cooking
