A little update ~

Not much crafting getting done around here as I've been busy with other things but that hasn't stopped me from  online retail therapy....a girl has to have some fun...right?!

My mom and dad's house sold in less than a week.  We have it all cleared out and are waiting to close (which hopefully will be next week).

Anxious to have the contractor start the addition on our house.  Refinancing should be complete by next week then we can give him the o.k. to begin.

We're adding one large room that will serve as their bedroom & living area with a 3/4 bath (that's a bathroom with no tub but a shower)  It's difficult for my mom and dad to get in and out of our claw foot tub so a walk in shower will be great for them.

Can't wait for another bathroom.....7 people and one bathroom make for some stressful situations...if you know what I mean!

That's all from "the hill".
