The good the bad and the ugly...



The GOOD! This is a before picture of our spare room. I painted it pale green when we built the house. I painted the entire house light neutral colours when we first built cause honestly I was afraid of experimenting with colour! This was the last room in the house to change and I love how it turned out! Between work and studying I would go in a work a little on it here and there and after 3 weeks it's finally done!




The BAD! I found this stuff all over my driveway after our snow removal guy blew our driveway out.............I looked around and realized the lower grill off my bumper was MISSING! Not to mention my salon sign was also busted up! My poor little car looks like it's missing a front tooth or something.....sooooo not impressed. We called the contractor and he is going to pay for the damage.
The UGLY......Yes!!! UGGGGG! We're having a late storm this year, 35 cm or so before it's over!!! I'm soooooooo sick of snow! School was cancelled and my guess is there won't be any tomorrow either.
LOL! We have a rural mailbox at the end of the driveway and when we hear the plow coming down the road we cringe cause we know he'll hit it and one of us has to go out and stand it back up.
I shake my head when I think Shane and I just went for a walk yesterday and I was wearing a light vest, it was beautiful!
Ok here's another GOOD so I don't end on that last note:
Shane is on vacation for a week and he is doing reno's on our basement! I'm pumped cause he's putting flooring down and we're going to put the laminate flooring that is upstairs down and put new stuff up here. YAY! It's going to be great to get the rest of the basement done.
