every mornin’ i see him waiting at the home depot

Actually, no renovation needs to be involved. As long as you have ventured out from living under your parent’s roof and you either rent an apartment or own a house, you have most likely frequented one of these stores. I know that we often do.

Home Depot is a favourite of mine. I prefer its size and overall layout compared to other stores. I love that it has aisles upon aisles of lumber, paint, lights, flooring, and more. I like to go there and dream about all the possibilities that we can do to Little Green. It is our go-to store for appliances. Its plant section is also where I end up buying most of my succulents. This is not because they have the best options, though it is not horrible by any means. It is because most of their plants are $5 and under, a price that is unheard of at our local greenhouses. Yes, Home Depot, I will always treat entering your structure like an exciting date with my husband. Merely because you always seem to have what we want, and we never leave disappointed.

    That guy looks like one of my contractors. Not kidding. He hitches a ride every morning out here with his boss. So he’s not as aimless as he looks. Ha!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
