Going Outside My Comfort Zone!!


I wasn’t around the computer much today, because I am in the middle of a major project! At least it’s major for me!! Today I started building a twin bed for my son!

I have been wanting to do this for months!! And my husband ( being the awesome guy he is!!) surprised me with a trip to Home Depot yesterday to get all the lumber, so I could finally make the bed I knew I was born to build!! Well, that may be a stretch, but I really wanted to try!

So my first day didn’t quite go as planned! I got up and out the door at 9:00 to go to Home Depot to pick up some last supplies. Only to discover that I would end up going back 2 more times, and my hubby another time (thank you!). And I would also end up making a trip to Ace Hardware before I was ready to call it a day! I did accomplish making part of both the head and foot board. Pictured above is part of the foot board. I have a few changes to make tomorrow before I can continue onward. So, hopefully that will go smoothly!! (Fingers crossed big time!!) 

I also have to say that today was a hard day to not have my beloved Dr. Pepper. It was not only hot and frustrating in the garage at times, but did I mention that I store all of my soda in the garage! It’s just sitting there, staring at me!! Uggg….but I did good!! I stuck to my water and ice tea!! And I am sure I must have dropped a pound or two today, because that carpentry is hard work!!!

I will update you with some more pictures of my progress tomorrow!! To be continued….


  1. Yeah! You and your “can do” spirit are at it again!!! I can’t wait to see the finished product. Your little man is going to love his new bed and is sure to have sweet dreams…….
