Well thank goodness for the long weekend because I totally wouldn’t have finished this post today. Also, I thought I had finished my Easter shopping on Thursday but I forgot to figure out what we are having for Easter dinner. Blah. I hate cooking meals like this, I hate cooking in general but big meals extra suck.

Does anyone have any recommendations for vacuums? We bought ours last year and it seems to be not working already. I totally should have read the reviews before buying it because the issue seems to be a common complaint. I don’t want one that breaks the bank, but one that will work for both carpets and hardwood. It’s only 650 sqft in here so we don’t need something huge because there is no place to put it. Bagless preferably since finding replacement bags can be a pain in the ass. Thanks 🙂


Weekly Reads (and maybe videos):

  • Internet work spaces are a psychopathic pit of lies. This made me laugh. You should see my workspace….or maybe not because it’s bad. Really bad.
  • What is the Devils’ Corkscrew? This is an interesting watch.
  • After I finished the newest book from the Fever Series I was going through withdrawal. Do you ever feel like that after reading a good book? Like no other book seems to compare at that moment? Anyway, this series was recommended to me and I love it. It’s another suck me in until 3 am series. If you like fantasy novels (fairies and such) this is a good one.
  • I think that I may try this 2 week clean eating “challenge” just to see how I feel after and if I can do it (minus the tuna because I hate fish). I already switched my peanut butter to almond butter and I survived so it might be worth the effort 😉
  • This isn’t really a read or find but it does pertain to reading. My 13-year-old is a night owl and we are contasntly battling bedtime with her. She has the tendency to try to sneak on to her iPad or gaming system to stay up so I have implemented a new rule. She can stay up as late as she wants as long as she is reading. Sleeping-in accommodations won’t be made the next morning if she stays up too late though. She’ll have to suffer like the rest of us who stay up too late reading. Good rule or bad rule?

  1. Hi Sara!
    I have been enjoying your packing lists and your blog posts. In this post you mention that your place is small – how do you manage to fit your wardrobe and your family into a small space – that is something I struggle with!

    • Hi! My wardrobe isn’t really that big. It all fits on a standard bar in a smallish closet. My closet is the biggest in the apartment though but it doubles and triples as the linen closet, and the storage closet so my poor clothes get crammed 😉 Aside from that it’s pretty crowded in here. No one is a minimalist no matter how hard I try, but the girls share a room and all of the furniture in the house pretty much all touch around every space. The only bonus is that since it is so small it doesn’t leave room for us to hoard things too badly. We are due for a huge purge though.
