Final Plans


Since we are not working on the sun porch or changing windows downstairs, they did not add them to the plans, I actually do have windows!!!!
What it comes down to is, taking the whole second floor off and building a new one, adding a full bathroom upstairs, moving the second story stairs and putting on a small addition to square it off . Then we change the downstairs bathroom , laundry room and added kitchen space where the addition is. The house is 30 x32 finished.

This is the side that faces the fields and will be the new view for our new master bedroom and bath!
Love this new back to my house!!!
We may put the deck from end to end so we can have a covered section.

Help the kids with postcards!!


My beautiful little niece lives in Avon Connecticut and her class is doing a project to see if they can collect postcards from around the world!! Anyone willing to send a postcard from home would be majorly appreciated and shared on my page. Used ones can just be written on or new is good as well. Apparently this has been a month going and they have only a few from other states so I’m calling for help!!!

Send the to Tracey Bernier

One small thing will help a child and classmates accomplish a great project!!!!

Thank you 🙏

Step one Done!


We bought our house March 2017 and since then we have redone all the floors, took out a wall separating the living room and dining room, put an 6 foot bay window in, reinsulated most of the outside walls with new windows all well, made the porch into a sun porch, tore out the whole kitchen and started it over. We had to cut out ceilings in the stairways for my 6 foot son to not hit his head, lol, and bunch of other things. The main problem besides the plaster is the ceiling upstairs starts at 4 feet on one wall and gets to 7 at the other, both sides of the house, very bad for my back!!! , so we said we had to fix it.

We finally started the process,

We drew up the first set of plans yesterday and decided besides tearing off the whole roof we are also putting in a small addition to make it a completed straight four walls.

The finished house will be 30 x 32 and it will all be usable space!!!

Gifted and talented!

This is for my 11 year old step son, the one out of two that doesn’t totally hate me, he is gifted and talented in school, above average smarts of course, but, is made fun of and teased for things. Target for bullies, mom favors his brother, he has had it rough for awhile now, this is his you tube channel and even if you don’t ever watch videos, can you please subscribe??? Please? He started a gamer channel two years ago and even thou he knows it won’t go huge or get famous, he still hopes for more than what he has. His self esteem is very low right now and you don’t have to watch them, I have the notifications turned off for all my you tube stuff so when I want to look for stuff I don’t have a bunch of notifications I have to clear first. It would be your good deed for the day!! Lol it has been months since he has had a new subscriber so he is getting a little doubtful. Please help me bring up his faith again. Thank you

Blessed Be.

This I do have right! I know with every part of me that my husband is my soul mate, loving him is the easiest thing in the world!

He moved some things, scraping sounds came up through the floors, then I heard some clicks and noises I did not recognize. Then came sounds I love to hear, and to my surprise my hubby had made himself a little music studio in our ever so small basement. Hearing him sings makes my heart sing along. I love his voice. He told me I had better not post this up since you can see how horrible the basement is but, it’s a basement!!! Lol

New light


In the past eight months exactly sept 1, there have been so many drastic changes in my life. All for the better in one way or another.

I met my soul mate, again.

We bought a house

We moved in together which means a new town and new school, all new streets and neighbors.

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer to add to my list of health issues.

They removed all the cervical cancer!

Learning to DIY everything from windows to floors to lights and faucets!

I have never had my own yard nevermind an acre! !

Getting married in one month and 14 days, doing almost all of it ourselves.

My life hasn’t been the worst but I have seen my share of horror and evil in this world and believe everything in my life has been preparing me for this, my happy ending.

I struggled to be a disabled mom and dad to my son’s who I wanted to grow to be healthy and happy young men going out to live full lives as adults and not feeling the need to compensate for what they didn’t have as boys. A father, money, a home and a mother who wasn’t sickly. My focus has been on myself and my family mentally and emotionally for so long that once my older son left home for school, I felt a little lost. My other boy is 14, 6 feet tall and full of confidence as to who he is. That’s when David came into my life after 25 years. I realized he was gods way of saying,” it’s ok to find love and let go, be happy, let all that work pay off,” and that’s exactly what it has been like for 8 months.

I’m still here


I have had so many different things some good and some not so good going on and instead of sharing with you all I was keeping it inside. That’s not such a good idea. My update to

Back, Forward and Back Again

I have been able to get rid of probably half the stuff cramped into my hallway. That was the first major area that has to be done so I can use the space to clutter up with other things. Lol. No, my crafting supplies are going there. As most of you know, supplies are always everywere! !! I had wanted it all done before my 18 year old came home for the holidays. Nope. But, it’s progress.

Then of course dealing with xmas and not letting my kids down was a huge stressed to me until they both told me to stop. I am blessed twice with these two boys. At 14 and 18 they get it. They don’t want me robbing Peter to pay Paul . They are such good kids. I sometimes wonder how I got so lucky.
