Houses like this...

Used to be run by a small army of servants (butler, housekeeper, cook, other staff, etc.). I got a cleaning lady that comes once every 2 weeks and a nanny that works 40 hours a week. I also have a husband and 2 children that need to eat, drink, clean clothes, comfortable environment, and a happy matriarch to provide all this for them. I spent a total of 4 hours shopping for food today in different supermarkets. And most of it will be gone by the weekend... Then there is that company that I'm trying to get off the ground, leaky roof, facade that needs to be restored, rosettes and plates for the new/old door knobs, landscaping, architectural drawings...

No sign of contractors.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Award from Montclair Historic Preservation Commission

Our lovely porch restoration has won an award from the Montclair Historic Preservation Commission for Brick and Mortar Preservation project in the residential category.

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.

The awards ceremony is on Thursday, November 19. We hope to see you all there.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
