IMNH: Kitchen Desk/Office Space

I know when I first started this IMNH thread, I said that I would do them once a month or maybe more... I've obviously gotten away from that and I'm trying to get back into it... So, onward...

In our current house we have an island, that is sort of serving as an office space.  We collect the mail there, we have scrap paper there, pens, batteries, staplers, tape, sewing kit, etc...  We also have a MacBook that currently sits on a laptop table in our living room so that it's within reach whenever we want to use it.  It's not a bad set up as that its the only two places for those sorts of things.... SO, In My Next Home, I would like to have a different set up.  I would like an actual desk area that is still in the mix of everything but has all sorts of compartments and is more of a reliable desk type area.

See below for a few examples.

My last thought on this one, well two thoughts.  First, I'd like it to have as much storage as possible so that I could tuck away things that are always out on on our island.  And two, there's just something about a log cabin that I love... Maybe one day, my next home will be a log cabin.

In your next home, get the desk built in in the kitchen. We opted against this, thinking we could just buy a stand alone piece that would fit and look great. Sounds easy...but it's not! I've been looking for over a year and can't find exactly what I want. Your 2nd pic is close...but black desk with cherry top and no hutch.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
