About those lost screws…

Welcome to my DIY blog – a humorous catalog of the do-it-myself house adventures I will be taking on in the next few years. I am expecting I will completely lose a few those loose screws in the process of getting this house finished so that’s where the name for the blog came from. Please don’t judge me. (LOL!) We all have a screw or two loose! At least all the folks I have ever happened to meet did.

I’m also a fairly crafty chick so look out for projects completely unrelated to my house, as well.  Girl-vs-House Projects & Other DIY Adventures should be pretty entertaining. Abby-normal stuff tends to…well…happen…when I am around. (Lets just say I always travel with Murph in tow and leave it at that!)

During my adventures in home improvement I’ll have some great advice and great help, too. Dad is a carpenter of sorts, he has redone all the homes he has ever lived in. Uncle Steve is a master tile-setter (that’s the TILE MAN, to you!). My stepdad, Glenn, owns his own HVAC company, Glenn Lima Inc. As you can see, I am not completely flying blind. Not to mention I have the greatest friends you could ask for. Ever.

I have never blogged or even followed one before, and I have no idea how to do any of this home improvement stuff.  Not having a clue how to do something has never stopped me from trying so far! Fasten your seat belts, folks, this is going to be a bumpy ride…

UPDATE:  Losing Screws is two years older and wiser. It has grown to include all of the crafty adventures I find along the way. It also now includes my adventures in Finding Fitness. I am still learning to be a homeowner and, as always, my little buddy, Murph tags along. He’s kinda growin’ on me, I just expect him to come around. I don’t even bother getting upset at his antics anymore.  I hope that you’ll find the instructions helpful, the crafts inspiring and the funny stuff a welcome distraction.

  1. Roni, Where do I even begin. I just had the greatest time looking around here. Definitely one of my favorite blogs and not just because we have so much in common (way more than our Adelle theme 😛 ) I owe SusanRushton a big hug. Where are you from? I couldn’t figure that out, but I-95 and tri-state were mentioned so you must be a northeast girl. I am really going to enjoy conversing with you. Melissa Xx

    • Yes! I am in the Burbs of Philly – you must be from the area!?!?! I still have my weather app set to Ennis btw – are you near there? I’m jealous of your weather every single day anyway! And your view. Glad you liked the blog posts! I adore your site as well. Yay to Susan for the introductions!

  2. Hi Roni, stopping by for a Sunday Visit.

    Love your blog! You inspire me to do better.

    Have one question? Have you located the source of your ceiling leak yet? I ask this as an old woman who has been responsible for so many leaks.

    Wishing you the very best.

    • Thank you so much for the kind words! No leak source yet. 👎 Left the ceiling open waiting and hoping to find it! Been running laundry as the only thing up in there is the vent stack and a safty drainage system for if the water heater or washer fails. Next up is to force water in that safty system and see if that’s it. Can’t make it leak again! Stay tuned on that front!


      • You are more than welcome, I’m very pleased to give it to you! 🙂

        As I said in my post, unfortunately whilst I’m quite new to blogging and still working things out, I haven’t had much of an opportunity to explore your blog to the full extent that I would like to but I do know for sure that your blog is versatile (and cute)!!

  3. “Fasten your seat belts, folks, this is going to be a bumpy ride…” is a nice way to end this about page. It made me lool forward to what else you’ll be sharing! Your writing style is laid back and light, I like it!
