1. I grew up on a farm, so mice don’t really phase me. Of course, my pantry isn’t being attacked either. Your floors are beautiful, but your hair? Your hair is gorgeous! I think your hairdresser was probably smart to ease you into the brown thing gradually. Maybe next time she will go a little darker, but I like it how it is now. Beautiful!!

    Oh, and 80 degrees and sunny? No comment.

    1. Formerly mice did not phase me either. While I didn’t WANT them in my house, I wasn’t scared of them. A few years ago we caught a few in our basement and released them in the woods. I showed them to the kids and we named them. They were cute. It was the facebook comments that got to me, along with the continued tampering with my food supply. Then I did some Mouse Research via Google and found out if I don’t exterminate them, I could have 200 mice in a month or two. So, yeah…now I’m phased.

      Thanks for the hair compliment. 🙂 Come here and see me and we’ll enjoy my weather together.

  2. Sandy,
    What a week… I’m so sorry about the mice. I thought new homes are built to prevent their entrance. I would have packed up (no, correction, I would have had someone pack me up) and moved out.
    As for the hair – stunning. Keep those blonde highlights, though. Brown is nice but the blonde will give your face a bit of a glow… no, not the pregnancy glow! 🙂
    What’s on my mind – how do I stop hearing about mice stories so that I don’t start thinking about them possibly in my house! Thank you for not taking a photo!
    Enjoy DC… it’s one of my favorite places in the states.

    1. Our home was built in 1999…apparently they implemented mice prevention in the new millennium.

      Thanks for the hair comments. I think that’s why my hair girl left the blond in. She always says, “I like you with blond around your face.”

  3. The floors and your hair look nice and not necessarily in that order. I am sure Jon will be taking care of the mice whilst you be gone. So when you get home don’t say anything about the shotgun holes in the walls and the new floor just be thankful you will have fewer mice playing tag in your house. To build a house I think it is around $120 per square foot. To remodel a house I am sure it is about $200 a square foot. Also it will cost your 20 percent more than you budgeted and 40 per cent longer than you thought. So the prevailing good advice on remodeling is: MOVE.

  4. My thoughts:
    – Your hair looks hot
    – Your floors look hot
    – Your new countertops look hot (from what I can see under the pantry contents)
    – I’m happy that #5 means I can blame you for the dust in my house….even though I live in a different country.
    – We had a mouse in our old house for awhile. We caught him, and not in the kind no-kill way. But it took several days and we found evidence of said mouse EVERYWHERE IN THE HOUSE!!!! Especially when we moved. “Evidence” EVERYWHERE! All 3 floors!!!!! But after the catching we never had any chewed boxes again. So I assumed the evidence was the work of that one mouse. After reading this I am not so sure. But if there were several mice, I guess I don’t care cause I dont live there anymore. LOL!

  5. First of all I want to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and
    clear your mind prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!
