Happy Saturday! Grab a cup of coffee and snuggle up in your favorite seat of the house as we chat about all things home, life, and randomness.
Do you have a “handy-person”? No, not your partner or kid, but an actual handyman service that you can hire on an hourly basis to knock out small projects around your home. I consider myself to be a very handy person. I used to try to fix things for my parents even when I was young. So the thought of hiring a handyman service seemed silly to me. Why would I ever pay someone to do things I can do myself?
My mind changed after I became a self-employed entrepreneur. Now I get it. Sure, I can adjust the doors that aren’t latching all the way, and I can change a faucet or a light fixture. I can repair a small piece of flooring and I can even do basic carpentry. But I don’t have time for that. I run a tight ship around here and I’m always busy, so being able to have my go-to handyman come over for four hours and just knock out things on my list is so helpful for me.
If you don’t already have a handy-person on call, I want to encourage you to start calling around and find someone you like. They charge a lot less than you think, and they really can take so much off your plate. I guarantee all those things on your to-do list aren’t your main priorities. Instead of spending your only day off fixing things and doing small tasks, you can be outside playing with your kids or digging into that new hobby you never have time for.
What’s On My Mind This Saturday Morning
We ordered a Peloton bike and it’s coming next week! If you’re a Peloton owner, give me all the newbie advice in the comments section.
The Circle is back on Netflix and it’s my favorite guilty pleasure. Nigel and I binge the weekly episodes while eating pizza on the couch like college kids.
Quick little rant…our cat litter brand changed the box size from 28lbs to 38lbs. They promote it as “a value!”. But lifting a 38lb box of sand to dump in a small box feels more like a workout and less like a value. Bigger isn’t always better.
When I was cleaning the refrigerator this week, I kept wiping out cat hair. How does cat hair get in the refrigerator???
I jumped on the produce bin bandwagon and I’m never looking back. These produce bins really do keep our cut fruit and veggies fresher longer.

One Last Thought
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, and I just want to say happy Mother’s Day to you, your mom, your grandmother, your cat and dog’s mother, and all the momma friends you love and care about. I’m also thinking about all the women who want so badly to be a mother but their time just hasn’t come yet. I know Mother’s Day brings mixed feelings for everyone, so tomorrow I hope you take some time to yourself to sit with your emotions, good or bad, and reflect on all the things you’re grateful for.
