The Wife hijacks the blog

With permission, of course - Jay is on the road so I am posting the photos he was unable to post last night...and besides, if I do this, I am able to avoid packing the youngest son's room for a little while longer :)

Here is the before of the house - it is hard to see the landscaping, but it is a singular row of what I like to refer to as "cat pee bushes".  They are really boxwoods of some sort, but they smell like cat pee and I hate them.  And we all know, when the momma ain't happy ----

It might not look like it, but this is a pretty good sized bed.  We didn't really measure when went on our trek to get landscape fabric and of course, we ran out, so off I went to the big metropolis down the road to get more.  As the oldest son likes to say, we have moved to the middle of freaking no-where - which was the plan, but we are used to having a lot of shopping options literally just around the corner from our house.  At the end of the day, this is what the bed looks like:

And a little ode to the oldest son and his fellow Marines - Semper Fi boys!

Clearly we have lots more to do and if I can keep the Hubs away from the neighbors and their beer fridges we will be in good shape! Until next time - I will leave you with the WOF of the week shot...she isn't loving her new rural home (and we had to make a trip to the vet today to deal with her new allergy to the carpet and drywall dust - seriously, not kidding here).

Thanks for reading,
The Wife


  1. "Cat pee bushes" LOL aint it the truth? Poor puppy! It's amazing what these dogs are allergic to. My Ginny used to be on antihistimines, (that stopped working). Got a shot of cortizone which worked like magic but he'll only let her have it every 10 weeks and it wears off at 6. So now I've got her on a light dose of prednisone. Geez!

  2. Ours is on antihistimines now, they make her very sleepy and she is still doing her reverse sneeze thing, but not as much. Hopefully once we get moved in and get the house cleaned out some she will stop having issues. It is always something at our house :)
