My New Little Guilty Pleasure
It was only a 4 day week and I am still saying TGIF!!
Getting the girls out of the house in the mornings is about as much fun as a root canal these days. By the time I drop them at school I am in need of a valium-laced tequila shot...or 3!
All of life's daily hassles are one of many reasons why we all need a few guilty pleasures. HGTV shows are one of mine.
The House Hunters shows have long been a favorite, however, while I continue to watch and love International House Hunters, the U.S. version has gotten old for me. Too many of the folks featured are materialistic idiots with an overblown sense of entitlement. Why a single person or couple needs 2,500 square feet of living space I will never know. Why those with almost no money refuse to settle for anything less than granite counter tops and hardwood floors is beyond me. And my favorite is people who want to live in urban centres but are appalled by the idea of having neighbours within site, or those so lazy, the idea of having to climb a staircase is unfathomable. Get a grip folks!
Fortunately, I have found a new focus of my obsession: Tiny House Hunters!
Its about people looking for homes that are like 600 square feet or less, often with the goal of being eco-friendly and minimizing their footprint on the earth. Love it! I also love the cosy quarters and amazingly efficient uses of space. Its so cool!
This weekend is a busy mix of work (at least I work from home doing sessions by Skype and phone!), the kids' activities, errands and social engagements! If there is time, I hope to catch an episode of Tiny House Hunters ;)
Have a good one.
