My To-Do List
I am a stay at home wife and a mother of 4. Three active boys: 16, 11, and 11 (twins) and one even more active toddler of a girl: 2. Buying furniture for all of our changing storage needs often proves to be more than I care for. So much of the stuff available is cheap and made in China, or made domestically but way too expensive for our budget...or just not exactly what I have in mind. As a result, I have turned to building to suit our needs.
My husband is a little more than just handy. He is great at building and fixing and doing all of the things around the house that you would imagine the perfect husband would do. The only catch is that he works in the oil field, so he doesn't spend too much time around the house to do them. He's usually in another state. So I get to have all of the fun making our home into exactly what we want it to be! Truth be told, I think I prefer it that way, anyway. Building things is my "Me Time." Transforming planks and plywood into something beautiful and functional is my own little bit of bliss.
