Comments: Old Houses

Most of the home improvement things that my wife and I have done in the past were done to help sell a house, so we never got to enjoy them for very long. With the current TaterBed, things we finished a few years ago are still being enjoyed. We have a few more we would like to do (doesn't everyone?) but it's difficult to finance those projects with only one paycheck.

Do you already have enough bedrooms so that your 3 "yung-uns" will have their own room, or will you have your daughters room together? Some parents like to force the issue and keep siblings together in one bedroom even if they do have the space for an extra bedroom.

We have a 3 bedroom house, so two kids will have to share. Right now the older two are sharing a room, but of course, eventually it will be the girls who room together.

Um...well...I'm more impressed by moms. I really am. As I am staring down the final count to "do we? don't we? we really want to...but is the house clean enough? are we sane enough?"...I become more and more amazed by women my age with children.

Sure. I can use a miter saw. But I can teach anyone to use a miter saw in 10 minutes flat and it is easily unplugged if you want it to be.

Motherhood. Man. That's 24/7. THAT'S hardcore. There's no unplugging there. (Well, not without a lot of Tylenol PM and tequila. And eventually you wake up.)

And funny blogging moms? SUPER HARDCORE.
