Too Many Projects. Not Enough Time. But I'm Not Complaining. Oh and a Cover Reveal!

What's that saying? If it's not one thing it's another.

That's how it feels around my neck of the woods lately. Let's see we can start with how our refrigerator began leaking a couple weeks ago. We thought nothing of it or maybe we had spilled some water in the floor. No biggie, right? So we cleaned it up and went on our merry way. A few days later more water was in the floor slipping all the way down the bottom of our cabinets. (May I add that this is almost brand new flooring) Anyway, sure enough it was our refrigerator. What's funny is we were just looking at new refrigerators and thought "we'll just wait," yeah we see how fate laughed at that one. So we ordered a new Whirlpool refrigerator and lucky ran into no issues getting it installed. It's beautiful. I love it. I wish it would have waited but oh well. Now the hubby wants to get a new stove and a new microwave so pretty much everything matches. Go figure. 

Next, hubby has decided to have some paint work done to the house. We are having the kitchen painted along with both girls rooms and all the cabinets. Since we got new flooring in the kitchen everything looks more yellow than anything so we are having the kitchen pained in light gray around the top and dark around the bottom. My girls room is going to be pink on two walls and brown on the other two and the teenager picked a light sky blue for her room. I still think the light blue is a bad idea but hey, it's not my room. All the kids got new bedding recently too so now it looks more their age. 

We're having the painting done while we go on vacation. Finally, we are headed back to the beach and I could not be more ready for some sun, sand, and the ocean! I never feel more at peace than I do at the beach. I'd love to live there if it wasn't for hurricanes and the sand gets old after awhile. lol. 

Lastly, I decided since the rooms were being painted that I would completely clean out my girls room. That was an all day process and they don't have a huge bedroom by any means! I cleaned under their beds and omg at the crap underneath there. I'm surprised I didn't find a raccoon had set up shop under there between all the lost toys and paper under there. Geez. That didn't even compare to what was under their dressers when we moved them! Tons of lost little toys, earrings, backs of earrings, paper, tape, crayons, I mean you name it and we found it. And omg at all the lost socks I found! The dryer didn't eat them all, they were all hiding underneath the beds and the dressers! Mystery solved! So now the girls room has been completely cleaned out and we'll probably put the bunk beds back together soon to give them more room but for now here is the finished product.....



And since yesterday was Mother's Day my little minions decided to match for me for the day. (They don't care to do that much.)


I hope all the mom's out there had a fantastic Mother's Day yesterday!

OH and last but not least! I've got a new cover for my upcoming contemporary romance Scarlet Beginnings! I wanted to share it with you all first!

Pretty isn't it?!

I can't wait to share this story with everyone! It's been a story in the making for almost a year now and I'm so close to the finish line!

So that's what has been going on around here. On top of trying to write, publish, and oh yeah the day job. lol.

Thanks for reading and catching up with me!
