Remodeling… Redecorating.. Medicating?

The last few weeks have been pretty hectic.  We’ve started some big projects in the house that have, in turn, verified a few suspicions. Our kitchen was pretty closed off from the rest of the world.  Even though there’s an addition on the house, nothing was»

Dear Karma, Thank you for being a bitch!

Before Sean and I bought this house we were under contract for another one that turned out to be an absolutely horrible overpriced piece of crap that would have made for a great bon fire. The owners were very insistent that they couldn’t come down AT ALL in»

Happy New Year!!

It’s that time again… Everyone has gone out of their way to make resolutions for themselves, and those with actual will-power may make it past day #2. I made it a point to not even kid myself and have no resolutions this upcoming year.  Why? It»

Woah there!

It’s been a pretty eventful couple of weeks, some good events, some bad events. We finally got back to NY very early on Wednesday (26th), we were so busy with everything in DE that we just didn’t have the chance to come home until then. We»
