What a POTS Crash Day Looks Like

Big Medical Words / Deep Thoughts About POTS / Oxygen-y Stuff / Uncategorized

Sometimes people ask me what causes a ‘bad day’ or what that even looks like.  Occasionally it’s hard to explain why I can’t go somewhere or do something.  I thought I’d go through a little explanation of how this all goes down. I slept pretty well last night.  Drank at least 6 glasses of water through the night.  We stayed up late-ish so I woke up around 11:30 or noon. I got up, went to […]

Sunday Scattergories: Jobs

As in occupations, not Steve Jobs. Today’s theme is all about jobs.  That thing I sure miss a lot.  WORK. For the first letter to use, use the first letter of the name of your current or most recent employer.  For me that would be “I”.  Use the last letter of each answer as the first letter for the next. Here we go! 1. A job little kids dream of having: Ice cream maker 2. […]

I feel like I have a lot of fun things to share today! Is Costco Slipper Time of Year Your Favorite Too? Every year I buy a new pair of Dearfoam women’s slippers from Costco.  There is just something fun about a new pair of soft and warm slippers.  They are $9.99 and I feel ok with making that investment each year.  They come in solid colors and this fun pattern.  Oh, and the men’s […]

Well, we are out of town this weekend and for some reason I thought I could get away with skipping my Sunday Scattergories post.  Now, don’t get me wrong.  I enjoy the challenge of putting these together, but we were focused on family things and I kind of thought no one would notice a week off. How wrong I was.  By 8:43 this morning I had a scathing email waiting for me. So, welcome to Monday […]

The Great $150 Guestroom Makeover

I recently decided that our guest room needed to transition from a sad and boring little room to a beautiful guest room.  Like most people, I didn’t happen to have a few thousand dollars laying around to hit up the Pottery Barn or Crate and Barrel.  A few thousand is probably a little on the low side of that estimate anyways. I thought it would be a fun challenge to see just how little I […]

Welcome!  I absolutely love this project.  It was fun, fairly simple and I love the end product. Supplies sheet metal (I bought two 9.99 sheets from Hobby Lobby- don’t forget to use a 40% off coupon on one of them, but really any thin metal will work.  I have since picked up some free scrap metal off of Craigslist, so keep an eye out there too!) 3 small wooden dowels (I bought these at Hobby Lobby […]

DIY $7 Tri-Color Flower Wall Hanging

Welcome to a fun tutorial that gives you plenty of freedom to customize this décor piece any way you desire. Pricing is hard, so please understand that I did a Great $150 Guestroom Makeover and included spray paint for the color scheme into that project, rather than trying to calculate a percentage of a can for each project, etc.  So for this estimate of $7 I’m assuming that you have some spray paint, as well […]

Chronic-Girl Crafts / Uncategorized

As part of my Great Guestroom $150 Makeover, I put together this cute little cotton boll wreath piece. Using a few odds and ends that I had around the house, I only had to pay two dollars for additional supplies. This is easy, versatile, and super simple to customize with what you have on hand. Now, if we assume you have an empty craft cupboard and an empty junk drawer, you’re obviously going to have […]

Happy Tuesday friends!  It’s a very rainy day here today.  So rainy that the goats got up to say hi and then promptly went back to bed. I Know What Ben Bishop Wants for Christmas I just want to make it so very clear that hockey players are tough.  I gathered this video to show you that all Ben Bishop wants is his two front teeth this year.  This particular clip doesn’t show it, but […]
