Big Mothers House

Happy New Year everybody! It is snowing here today and I have been cleaning out in my little office area.  It is amazing how much crap you can accumulate over a year. I have to do this every January after Christmas.  If I didn't our little house would be bulging notepads out the basement windows and Pyrex out the front door.

Chad and I went home to Alabama for Christmas.  Stressful?  Absolutely.  We  have to split time between two families and make sure that we enjoy we time away from work.  It is a lot of juggling and makes me really wonder if it's worth using my vacation and my hard earned money to go.  Everyone is ready for a vacation after a vacation yes?

When we were home we helped Chads family go through his great grandmothers home and pull out things that we think we may want if we ever decide to build a home somewhere.  The house has been taken over with termites, roaches, water damage ect.  They don't know what they are going to do with it but will probably end up donating it to a local volunteer fire department for practice.

The two ends of the house were added on late 50's early 60's.  The original home was only as wide as the porch.
