I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not… I haven’t been around!!! No new posts, no nothing from me for about a week.
Where have I been? On VACATION!!! We headed up to my parents in Ontario Canada and spent a week there. We had a blast! Lots of fun things to do, lots of time spent with friends and family. While there, the girls have their own room, in my old room in fact and me and hubby rule the basement while were there.
The great thing about the basement is that it’s got not only a huge TV (like 50” or so) but we’ve also got a great bar downstairs that my brother built. The only thing, is it needs some stocking up and some new things to be added to it. I’m thinking that for a next gift for my brother, I’ll help him update that bar just a little.
He’s got a great bar, but it needs some better stools to go with it. I’d like to look around here and maybe for a Christmas gift find some cheap bar stools with backs considering the backs on his current bar stools are mid size and not too comfortable, higher backs would be better plus my girls do sit on the stools a lot when they are downstairs and they always freak me out thinking they’re going to fall!
Considering I’m so short, I do have to jump up quite a bit to get into his current stools. I guess along looking for new ones with higher backs, I’m also going to look into finding some bar stools with adjustable height. Yea, yea, I know, not my bar but come on, I have to sit in those chairs too, so do my parents, and I’m sure my brother has short friends too considering he’s not too tall himselfeither!
I do have to find something a bit more ‘fun’ for that bar too, he needs some lights, photos, and some more alcohol! I think his Christmas present this year is pretty set to stock up that bar to the fullest, including a really good pub set!
But enough about that. I’m home, I’m back from vacation, and now I have unpacking and laundry to do as well as sorting through the hundreds of emails. So bare with me, this will probably be the only post for today as I get situated and back on track with ‘life’ back home. You know how it is getting out of ‘vacation’ mode and back to ‘real life’, it doesn’t happen as soon as you step into the door.
