The house I grew up in had two and a half baths all of which where what we called The Pink Bathroom, The Yellow Bathroom and The Blue Bathroom. We helped renovate my parent’s house while hubby was out of work, and we were able to do just about all of it. Today we are gong to show you how we transformed The Blue Bathroom into this with a very limited budget.
This is what the picture looked like before we did anything.

Do you paint?
Do you want to?
I have been painting for 30 years. We have owned and painted four houses we lived in (multiple times), three we flipped, two we renovated and helped others paint. I am always learning new tricks, and would like to share with you some tips I have learned along way.
One of the hardest parts of painting is getting a straight edge to give it that professional look.
When I started to paint I used painters tape all the time. It makes a nice straight edge, but it definitely has its disadvantages.
- It takes a lot longer to prepare to paint.
- It costs more than if you didn’t have to use it.

- If you don’t take the tape off while the paint is still wet, it is harder to remove.
Look how nice the edges look!

Last Sunday I spent the day coaching 3 baseball games for our sons U11 (Under 11) baseball team. We went 1-2 on the day but the kids played really well for the first time getting outside.

How Can You Help Your Young Athletes Deal with Failure?
One of the ways we save money is by looking for sales on food and making meals with what we have in the house. One of the things I like to do is when I go to the grocery store is to check if they sell meat ends. That is the ends of the meat they sell in the deli section. There are several smaller markets that I know of that sell the meat ends for much cheaper than the regular price. Unfortunately none of these stores are close by. So when I am able to stop at the market, I will usually check to see if they have any meat ends.
Practice is an essential ingredient for any successful team. But not just any kind of practice, but productive practices with everyone on the team working hard and concentrating on doing things correctly, from coaches, to players, to parents. Remember, practice does not make perfect, practice makes actions permanent. Only perfect practices makes perfect.
It has been proven that for every time you do something wrong or incorrect, you have to do it right seventeen (17) times to get your brain oriented to doing it right or correctly.
With that said, here are 5 guidelines for players (and parents) to follow:
