    Voting David Yassky Out

    I love that NYC voted David Yassky out of office. As a politician in NYC, he became too detatched from the people and what mattered. Instead of supporting home owners in his area, Yassky sided with developers. When the vote for term limits came up, Yassky voted to extend term limits even though he knew […]

    Build a Room from something you love

    Decorating tip: I find it easy to choose paint colors and furniture after I have an idea for the room. Usually, my ideas come from something I love. I purchased this large plate from Pier 1 because I loved the colors that were in it. I then built our dining room around those colors.

    Life is moving fast!

    It’s October! I can’t believe I have been a home owner for a month now. It’s exciting, a bit overwhelming and fun! The new house is beautiful, comfortable and just so right. It’s also a lot of work and I go to bed tired almost every night. Last night, I laid on the bed and […]

    Sweet Sixteen Venues in Bay Ridge or Nearby – Catering Halls 11209

      We went to a Sweet sixteen for our friends daughter last night. It was held at the Rex Manor and I was so surprised at how much the Rex Manor had changed. It was beautiful and the buffet food was actually good. I hadn’t been to the Rex in more than 20 years and […]

    We primed and painted after covering the wood floors well. The house is coming along nicely. We put wainscoting upstairs. I am totally in love with the wainscoting (pics soon when I get some furniture in). A friend came over to the place tonight. This friend has INCREDIBLE taste. She told me that my place was GORGEOUS! It was just what I […]

    The Night Before the First Day of School

    This is my 15th “first day of school” as a teacher. I’m sure many veteran teachers think I should be used to it by now, but I’m not. I am excited and nervous for the first day and I’m still up at 2:00 a. m. While we spent the day setting up a classroom, the […]

    Labor Day

    Labor Day means the start of school is here. I am excited to begin a new year. This will be my 15th year teaching and I smile when I think about meeting a whole new set of excited 6th graders. Many people like to think of January 1st as a time for a new year. […]

    National Grid I Love You

    We have an old house and it has an old gas burner/furnance . We were going to have it checked out by a plumber, but they are pretty expensive for a basic check/cleaning. I mean nothing is wrong with my burner, the heat works, but I remember family members getting theirs cleaned/checked every year. I […]

    Death in Life

    For the past few days, I’ve  found myself crying at the new house. I’m a bit overwhelmed by it all. If you know me, you know this is all I’ve ever wanted for YEARS. And now actually having it is amazing, but also overwhelmind. It’s an incredible house and it only needs paint because the former […]
