My name is Jamie, and once upon a time, I was a blogger here at Medium Sized Family.
Life in our medium sized family has been c-r-a-z-y for the past year. So much so that I had to let a ball drop. Unfortunately, that ball turned out to be the blog.
You know, sometimes I look around and see other rock star women who manage to homeschool their children, do a home makeover, and run an amazing blog, all while giving birth and keeping a well stocked freezer. And it turns out, I am not that woman.
(No, I did not give birth again in the past year. But the homeschooling and home renovation stuff, yeah. We did that. I also ran for a political office in our small town. And now we have 3 high schoolers, all in different high schools.)
But for now, let’s focus on that whole home renovation part, shall we?
We Have a Second Bathroom!
A dream that we’ve had for the 13.5 years we’ve lived in this house is to have a second bathroom.
Having 8 people in a house with only one bathroom goes EXACTLY like you would think it would go.
There’s always a line. Always.
(Really? It’s 2 a.m. and someone is in the bathroom? Uh huh.)
The room smells like 5 boys use it all the time.
It’s not pretty, no matter how many ways I try to paint it.
That was life for 13 years and 6 months (almost exactly) (but who’s counting?).
But finally, my dreams have come true! I have my own bathroom in my own master bedroom!
We live in southern Ohio, where we tend to get either a lot of snow, or hardly any at all. Our winters are unpredictable anymore.
This year, we’re getting lots of snow!
It makes me happy that we always prepare as though it will be one of those cold, snowy winters. It’s nice having plenty of food in the house and a backup plan in case the power goes out (which always happens at the worst time!).
I'm Jamie, and I believe that you can build your savings, even when life is frustrating. Learn more.
