Here's my main issue: I hate the town I grew up in. I'm tolerating this place while I live with my parents and the hubby and I save for our own home. I'm grateful that my parents are doing us this huge favor. I know I have it real easy right now, especially since we do not have to pay any rent. However, my parents don't understand my utter loathing of this town and my need to escape it as fast as possible. It's caused quite a few fights in the past few days and now my father and I are not even speaking. They've basically backed my husband and I into a corner and are pushing this, excuse my French, shithole house onto us. It's a great deal but you need another $150K to fix it up and make it liveable. Let's just say animals have dug through the roof and there is black mold in the upstairs. It's awful. But they keep repeating over and over, "It's a great deal. It's going for $100-200K less than other houses in the town. Blah blah blah." No matter how many times I tell them, "I hate it here and I never want to live here/raise a family here," they keep pushing. I understand the great school district (my husband works for them). I understand. I get it. It's not what I want. It's everything I don't want.
But in other news, I'm getting a lot of great feedback/comments about the giveaway! However, I wanted everyone to know that The Fairy Apothecary is not my shop! I wish it were but I cannot take credit for the wonderful work my friend Kristin does. I do help her out from time to time at craft shows but all of the work is done in her Fairy Den in Upstate New York. Also, if I could make your screens scratch and sniff I would! All of her soaps smell amazing! My personal favorite is Love Spell. I've used all of her products, so feel free to ask me about any of them. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
