Living Room Revival – day three

Posted by andrea in: Misc. life

Update – 9:30 p.m.
To summarize: it was fun. I am happy. Now, I am going to go collapse on the couch. Am too pooped to peep. More tomorrow.

Update – 10:30 a.m.
You have no idea all the things I found underneath the couch cushions. I am vacuuming like the possessed. Did I mention we’re dog-sitting today too? Woof!

7:00 a.m.-ish
The designers are coming at 12:30 this afternoon. Emma’s at home with a fever. The house is pretty much a disaster. I just threw my neck out in the shower.

Stay tuned!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
