Where we live

Welcome to The Claymore! We are on the 6th floor........high enough for a great view without making me feel like I'm going to vomit when I walk onto the balcony.



Let me just clarify that this does not clearly represent the entire apartment. As much as I would like to say that everything is in it's perfect spot, that is absolutely not the truth. I can not lie.......I staged this picture. Behind the sofa, on the window ledge, are dozens of picture frames and books that have yet to find a home and behind me is a big pile of stuff I have no idea what to do with. It's the perfect pile for a spare bedroom, garage, attic, or even walk in closet but since we don't have any of those things I will be forced to deal with it.

And yes, those are white floors. And yes, those floors will be the bane of my existence.

Part of my kitchen. Behind me are floor to ceiling cabinets that are bright blue. It helps to distract from all the white on the walls and counter tops. White + 3 boys = an excercise in patience like nothing I've experienced before. Well, except for this:

This would be my "laundry room". It is outside from the main house and completely open with no air conditioning. I can look over that ledge and see the kids playing below.......or find the pair of underwear that flew out during a rainstorm. I lucked out and got an enourmous washer and dryer by Singapore standards since a normal washer and dryer here would hold one pair of pants and a sock.

What I have loved most about the last 4 weeks with no other kids and very little to no TV or XBox or Wii........it has forced the boys to rediscover each other and how much fun some of their toys are. In a lot of ways, I will miss this when life picks up its pace.


  1. It is beautiful! They will need each other like never before now. Bonding time for sure!

  2. Thanks for your honesty! Miss you. Praying for you. Can't wait to set a date for our dinner/lunch skype!

  3. Prayed for you and your boys (the small ones and the big one) just now, friend!

  4. It's wonderful. The place is starting to look like home...love and miss ya!

  5. Can you explain to me why seeing your kitchen made me cry?
