I had two big items on my to-do list this weekend. One was to clean out the shed and the other was to put up a clothesline. Cleaning out the shed with a recently broken toe seemed like a guaranteed way to inspire cursing and tears so I gave that one a…

I’ve been slowly working my way through sewing slipcovers for the cushions of my chair. After years of rarely sewing it’s amazing how much I’ve forgotten – like much easier ways to insert zippers than how I ended up doing it! But the zippers are done, and…

I’m not going to lie, I struggle to stay motivated every damn day. My to-do list is about as long as I am tall, and trying to keep at the tasks on that list is exhausting. If I had my way I would have spent today laying on my bed reading, or better yet…

I spent most of yesterday confused over which day of the week it was. I woke up to rain this morning so at least now I know it’s Friday. Even if the weekend is a dreary one again, it’s starting to feel much brighter in my home. On Wednesday I gathered…

When you live in less than 1,000 square feet with 2 full-grown boys, 2 big ass dogs and a witch of a cat it seems strange to say the space needs more life, but it does. My house needs the type of quiet life that plants give a space. Plus I’ve never had to…

I’m really not feeling the thankful this week, which probably means I need to do this and get past my “meh” mood. Happy #1) I have a functional workspace. When Matt moved back home and into my office, we just shoved my monster desks back into my bedroom.…

I’m surprised to notice it’s been a full week since I last wrote a post but it has been that long. It was a busy weekend followed by a busy week! Happy #1 The Duck Dynasty truck is all back together and running great. We spent Saturday driving around…

Last week I found a gorgeous chair on Kijiji. It was a fantastic deal, even if it didn’t come with any cushions. No worries, I had planned on making cushions for a chair when I found it anyhow. Once the chair was mine, I started looking for the slab foam…

I won’t pretend that this week didn’t have its share of aggravation and irritation, because it did. Most of my aggravations are of either the 2 footed or the 4 footed male variety. I had a ton of stuff I wanted to get done, and it seemed as if every time…

I’m developing a Value Village/Thrift Store addiction. I’m not sure if I should blame it on some of the decorating blogs I’ve read lately, or just my need for some nice things in the midst of my cleaning binge. I usually only go to Value Village every…

So I’ve been on this quest since June 11th to get my house in order. June 11th!!!! There are lots reasons why things got so bad, but mostly it was because for about six years I was barely home and if I was home and happened to have company over I just…

When I was getting my hair cut last Friday, I was the second last appointment of the day. The last appointment of the day is a friend and neighbor of my hairdresser, so she arrived early and settled into the chair next to me to wait her turn. My…

I used to live a half-assed life, now I live life on my terms.
Introduction
Two years ago, my house was a disaster, I worried my kids were never going to be adults, my job sucked and I had a half-assed boyfriend. So I poked fun at my life and it's ironies at My Half Assed Life.

Then the half-assed boyfriend dumped me, my oldest proved that he was up for adulthood by moving out and I decided it was time to dump the half-assed image. So now I still poke fun at myself and life's ironies but I work a little harder at getting my shit together. As long as you promise to not tell my mother, you can find me at Going From Here to There.
