house anxiety

I would love to say this bathroom remodel is going smoothly, but it isn't. Of course. The cabinets look great; the panel in front of the tub looks great. The mirror... Not so great. We had it removed and cut down a little. In the meantime, Guy spent two nights building a frame for it. They came to install it this morning, and our frame isn't as thick as the mirror. That think is thick! So, it wasn't proper support. They had to install it on a "J ledge," which sticks up out of our pretty frame. I'm hoping Guy will come up with an easy fix for it tonight when he sees it. Mostly because I want him spending time with me and the kids at night and not with his tools.

I think I'm mostly just nervous about this weekend's project. We are planning on using the 3 day weekend to tile our shower and around the tub. I'm very excited and nervous to get that going.

Also keeping me on edge is the fact that we haven't shown our house in TWO months. I'm having a hard time keeping my spirits up. Three other houses in the neighborhood recently got contracts. What's wrong with ours?

Maybe you should have those 2 women on HGTV come and look at your house and give you a reason. They come, survey the scene, give you a report...and then a team fixes up stuff that needs help.

I actually went on the HGTV site to see if any of those programs would come to the ATL area. So far, none were. Still, they can't get people to come in the door, so what good is it?

We got the "go" to move to Raleigh, NC and soon. So, we'll be doing the house hunting thing soon. I have no idea why your house isn't selling! It's absolutely beautiful based on the photos you showed. I seriously have no idea on this one.

Well, you'll get a good deal, I bet. I've heard that area is great. I'm happy for your move. Gotta have better house prices than D.C.

Johnna, I am Kate...the other mother raising three boys! I went to your site and found that you and I are living very similar lives! We both have three under five! I LOVE meeting mother's of three or more boys...I look into their eyes and think, "We are kindred spirits and we share something that no other women have or will ever know!" There is definitely something special about boys and having ALL boys. They are physical, active, have endless energy, don't stop asking questions, and they are so loving of their mothers. I wanted a girl so badly, but now I realize what a blessing these little bear cubs really are! Thank you for commenting, I am happy to have found another cute mom to little fellas! Your blog is great, you have a wonderful writing style...I love it. Kate
