Hi! I’m Lisa. You probably knew that already.
I would like to fancy myself a world-class chef, accomplished seamstress, interior decorator, photographer, and perfect mother and housewife. In reality, I’m really just a pretty decent copy-cat. I would never refer to myself as “talented;” it’s more like “creative.” Mostly, I’m just good at learning from my mistakes. Which is good; ’cause I make a LOT of them.
In January 2013, we made our latest move out to Colorado Springs, and after living in Washington, Chicago and Ohio over the last four years, it finally feels like we’re home. Leaving Ohio meant waving goodbye to two years worth of gutted bathroom remodels and kitchen renovations; and although it was a painful parting, we get to start all over again with our new house. Even the smallest task is a pain in the ba-donk-i-donk; we have two little humans and two companions of the four-legged variety constantly underfoot. It seems like we always bite off just a tiny bit more than we can chew.
Things I’m Pretty Good At:
- Proper usage of the F-Bomb
- Making an ass of myself in public
- Staying creative on a teeny budget
- Using a staple gun
- Passenger-seat driving
Things I Have to Work On:
- Maintaining a level head under the mutiny of two small children
- Cooking “vegan”
- Lowering my reliance on caffeine
- Using tact when dealing with the general population
- Reconciling my feminist ideals with real life
- Miraculously winning the lottery – though I have never actually bought a ticket
We love to travel (and usually do it in our tiny little “House With Wheels,” a 14′ Aliner Camper). The Hubs is an avid outdoorsman, and I do my best to fool him into believing that I am, too. (I ‘spose that is a bit of a misnomer, since I DO enjoy the outdoors; I’m more of an innocent bystander – he builds a mean campfire and I roast a mean marshmallow.) Personally, I’d rather spend every day at Disney World, eating ice cream and riding Space Mountain all day.
Our life is a work in progress… But isn’t it always?
