    I can't believe how many forums and sub forums and sub sub forums, or whatever they're called, are here! I wonder if I'll ever get to all of them to look around. Right now I get lost but hopefully that won't be so some day. :jar:
  2. Home Environment
    Who has one and how do you keep it neat and organized? We have a walkout basement, the door is at the end of the rec room. I'm thinking of using it as a mudroom, but it has to be attractive because it is open to the rest of the room. Here is a picture if anyone has any advice of how I can...
  3. Home Decorating
    Since we've talked about boy's rooms already, how have you decorated your girls' rooms? Pink & frilly, special theme, country, modern? My daughter's room is sage green, a fairly neutral colour, with a flowered quilt on the bed and embroidered sheers on the window to make it look girly (or old...
  4. Home Decorating
    I was out yesterday looking for bedding for my son's room and could not get over the huge discrepancy between what is available for girls and what is available for boys. Every store was row after row of frilly, girly bedding and nothing for the boys. Nothing! I was in 6 different stores, I...
  5. Home Environment
    I am home decorating challenged and mostly home organizationally challenged as well. I'm really hoping I can glean some ideas from y'all. We are going to be moving soon. We have 2 kids, boy and a girl, so a 3 bedroom house would be ideal. But, one of the houses we are looking at is a 2...
  6. General Chat
    Well, my husband lost his job on Friday and currently looking for another one. Until then we've decided to rent out a room or two (if two we'll just live in the living room) to help out with bills. My question is, has anyone rented out a room and has it been a good or bad experience? I really...
  7. Family
    I would like some input, especially from those with larger families. We have four children, three girls in a row (almost 9, 6 and almost 4) and a son who just turned two. We live in a three bedroom house and have plans to either add on a fourth bedroom or convert the garage to a fourth bedroom...

  10. Question and Answer
    It is sheer utter agony to get my kids to clean their rooms... The routine includes: bribing, threatening, yelling, and stalking in with a garbage bag. Yes, I know, not mother of the year material! DD12 has actually taken in boxes to declutter and seems pretty into it this time. DD7 is just...
  11. Family
    We found out we are expecting #4 in Jan. Not planned, but a blessing none the less. :) We have a DD (7), a DS (5) and a DD (2, almost 3). Right now, our DS and youngest DD share a room and our older DD has her own room. We are moving to a larger house, but still only 3 bedrooms. I'm not...
  12. Frugal Living
    I was just reading in a one income family thread and you had mentioned about a cold room. I have a cold room but everything seems to freeze in there in the winter. I do have my freezer in there and some wooden bins and wooden shelves. Is there anything which I could do so that I can keep my...

    Nope, not at all.

    ...............DH finally agreed that my idea to put the girls in bunk beds was a good one. He found a set of fairly cute beds on sale at RTGK, so he took DD#1 there yesterday. Gets there and calls me to tell me that they aren't available until 5/17. Okay, well, we've waited this long, what's...
  15. Home and family challenges
    Okay, if you have any extra rooms in your home, (other than the office), like a craft room, guest room, reading room, exercise room, junk room, etc., it's time to focus our energies there. I have such a room in my house. It is the exercise room, soon to be sewing room, and storage room. There...
  16. Home Environment
    We have 2 kids rooms. One for dd and one for both boys. The boy's room is always disorganized and dd's is a bit better. What are some ways you've found to organize children's rooms that make it easy for both kids and moms to keep it that way.
  17. Sewing
    What's everybody having fun with right now in their sewing. Karen's got a cute idea making nighties out of old Tshirts, cutting them down for her dd. I've got to finish some more fitted sheets. Homemade fits better and doesn't shrink off the bed, and actually stays tucked in my thicker...

    Have any of you seem this movie... Four Rooms? We went to some friends' house last night and they were all excited to have bought this movie because they loved it and it was sooooo funny. I didn't laugh once. :P It is one of those comedies that are so twisted and far from reality that some...

    We have 4 bedrooms, a large living room and a fair size kitchen. We have a very small half basement which is only used for storing food. How about you?
