I meant to post this last week for Friday Q & A but I couldn’t get to it.
The biggest reason I couldn’t get around to it was because I was being a mother. And a wife. And everyone seemed to need me at the same time before our normal routine began on Friday morning.
But also I worried about giving out this link because I know many readers of this blog have no interest in house stuff, to the point that it makes them feel bad. To them a house blog is materialistic and nutty, and I totally understand. (here and here) The last thing I want to do on this blog is to make people feel bad! I know this is my blog and I can write whatever I want, but one of my goals here (alongside simply keeping a family record) is to create a place for mothers to feel uplifted and empowered. And sometimes building-a-home stuff doesn’t really go in sync with what I want this blog to be.
But because I’ve received myriads of questions from readers just like that one up there I know there are lots of readers who do have the interest. And being the record-keeper I am, I need to write for my own sanity.
So I’ve created a different blog. One dedicated just to this crazy house stuff. Although it is pretty sparse right now, I will keep adding posts to get caught up to keep a record of this two-year-process that has taken up so much of our every day lives. We feel so very blessed to be able to create this space for our family. It has always been a dream of Dave’s to build a house and we feel so lucky to have this opportunity. But please don’t go there if you’re not in a materialistic mood 🙂
Bottom line is that we did buy a new house (back HERE). And boy howdy have we ever learned a lot from that thing over the almost two years since then! We are on a journey I had never anticipated. And it needs to be recorded somewhere so I’ll remember to never do it again.
Here’s the work-in-progress link: http://www.71toeshome.com/
The real answer to that question up there is in the first post.
