Thoughts on a Thursday

I haven't blurted out random thoughts in a while, so here goes...

-It's my first week of completely working at home (I used to be able to every now and then at my old job) and I'm amazed at the amount of work I get done (both personal and professional) when I'm all by myself.  This week alone I've done all of my regular work, had 3 contractors out to look at our kitchen, deep cleaned a different room every day, kept up with laundry, and had dinner done by the time KB got home.  It's been pretty glorious.  I'm sure once I get up to speed with actual work though lots of the personal stuff will have to go away.

-KB has decided that he wants to go to law school (why I have no idea).  This would involve us moving at least 3 hours away from where we are now.  I'm not sold on the idea.....and he knows it.  I'm hoping that it will just go away.  He says he's tired of his job and he's bored with what he's doing.  I'm hoping he gets a new job soon and the law school idea dies a quick death.

-I"m in the process of decorating my office/closet room (pictures to come).  KB and his grandpa built me this huge corner desk.  We decided to stain it in the basement and then move it upstairs to my office.  Needless to say this desk weighs a million pounds and I was pretty sure I was going to die last night moving it.  We also had a slight issue fitting it through the door, but made it (after scratching the door and walls which will now have to be repainted).

-I got to spend some quality time with some lovely lady hens yesterday.  A friend of ours is going out of town for a few weeks and just moved close to us, so we're watching her chickens for her.  I get to keep all of the eggs and hopefully it will be good practice for when we get our own chickens (hopefully this spring).  We've got plans to build a log cabin coop like this one from Backyard Chickens that will use up a bunch of tress that KB has cut down.


  1. Cute coop! Can't wait to see your office!

  2. I am so envious that you work from home.

  3. My mom wants to have chickens when she retires. I'm looking forward to fresh eggs!
