What is going on with me and this blog? Are we even friends any more? I think it’s one of those common situations where time has just gotten away from us and each of us keeps waiting for the other one to reach one … So, I decided today that I’d be the one to do so. And here I am. Hello, old friend. How have you been?

Although I swear I saw flurries in the backyard this morning as Phoebe barked incessantly to be let back in, I’ve decided that it is, indeed, spring and that I must get cracking on my spring to-do list. What does that list have on it? I’m so glad you asked. And so is Aaron.

  • Hanging the sewing room chandelier
  • Painting the guest room
  • Installing some cool board and batten in that same room
  • Hanging another roman shade in that very same room (that guest room is going to be ready for all of our summer guests)*
  • Figuring out what the he%$ is going on with the attic**
  • Wallpapering something (even if it’s self-adhesive wallpaper and the subject is a vase)

And that’s just the indoors! And just the house! Well, what else is there, right? Jk. It’s almost festival season! Oy vey. I just need this weather to start to show some signs of life and we’ll be all set.


*At press time, I’m not aware of us hosting any guests this summer. I anticipate that changing once pics of the guest room go viral.

**More on this later.

    Sounds like a great list. I’d like to be a Summer guest?

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera
The answer when I Googled why I couldn’t see as well. I’m no doctor, but this seems to check out. #googledoc #visionprobs #over40
Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
