It's NOT all roses and BHG, Currently, and March Story Problems

Just to fill you in, at the end of February I bought my first home and I have been completely consumed with making it awesome.

 And I've been dealing with the reality that, yes, Casey, your house is going to look like a garage sale for a while and not like the cover of Better Homes and Gardens. 

I think that Charlie has been trying to help me deal with this reality by doing this:

I considered putting him outside. . . . permanently. He hates it outside. In fact, he has never been brave enough to leave the front hall. . . . but then he did this:

And then he did his meow that sounds like "Mommy." 

Now we are in love again. I'm easy.

(Once again, thank you Farley for the monthly opportunity to link up and meet new people!)

And when my fiance finds the carpet, I may need to start building a dog house for Charlie. 

While you think about dog house designs for cats. . . . head on over to my TPT store to grab my latest set of Story Problem Task Cards for March.



  1. Ooh, congrats on your new house!! That is so exciting. My husband and I bought our first home at this time last year, and it was the best thing we've ever purchased. :) Good luck with all the decorating -- it's so much fun!

  7. My cat thought she needed to christen my house and it was just the one cat so after many chances they both got a new place outside and they are happier. Good luck!
