Our toilet has been acting up for years... it doesn't want to flush, it takes a ton of water, and it's aggravating all around. Clogs on literally NOTHING, takes three or four tries to flush, overflows, runs continuously until you jiggle the handle... the works. No amount of additives or plunging has helped. My husband … Continue reading Behold! A Toilet at Last!
This was another of my Christmas presents, from Sustainable Seed Company, although I got them through Amazon. This is the set I got. (Spoiler: affiliate link!) It was kiiiiind of one I picked out for myself... I did all of the Christmas shopping, so this is what my husband gave me. But I love that … Continue reading Herbs for my Grow Light!
I received a grow light for Christmas from my mother-in-law and it's WONDERFUL. I've wanted grow lights for years, and so this was super happy making! This was the sole reason we cleaned the basement! Here's what it looks like assembled: It was moderately easy to put together, but I wasn't able to push all … Continue reading Grow Light Huzzah!
My husband got this set of Mario magnets for Christmas! It's pretty obvious they're not officially licensed, but they are cute and kind of fun!

I spent last night wrapping … Continue reading Wrapped and Ready To Go!
I asked for curtains this year for Christmas. Our house has many windows, and most of them have makeshift curtains or no curtain at all. Our kitchen window has a towel hanging in it! Mom and I picked out fabric, and the first one is done! I asked that the one to our front door … Continue reading My Curtains are SO SHINY
You knew we wouldn't be able to make it through the holidays without triggering a mood swing, right? Stress, both good and bad, is a huge trigger for my swings, so of course I swing faster than normal during the holidays. So I'm taking the last few days of break to take care of myself … Continue reading Holiday Mood Swings
