"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Update on Laundry Room

Building an addition is not as hard as I thought. The ceiling was the hardest and then the walls, as I wanted them to be perfect.

I also wished for the floor to be the kind of floor that matched the southwest. I hope you like my new laundry room!

Here is where I began the addition.
Getting the walls perfect was somewhat tricky.
Oh and the ceiling?! Sky blue paint is not as easy to find as one would assume. And I am all for staging the room to make it feel the way I desired when I built it.

So same photo sharing all the perks of my laundry room remix. First if I feel like I need a mini workout, I have built in pull-up bars. I can also attach a toddler swing when little ones visit. My laundry table was hard to find, but once I found it, the rest of the room fell into place. The Bible verse is inspirational-and I read it every time I go to the laundry room. Note the purse. My former lovely clothespin bag was to die for on the farm...and Delilah had to have it. I left it out one night and she teethed on it. So now the clothespins are housed neatly in a purse that I kind of liked but had not used...hey what new laundry room can't use a timeless classic such as a brown handbag?

The clear divisions of my laundry room still keep up to date with the open house feel we have seen in floor~plans of the 21st century. I worked very hard to make sure that if, Mr. Farmer and I were ever to sell, the additions would be modern yet simple. Another important factor when considering the efficiency of an addition to the laundry room was how much energy was available and how much would be used? Our climate is very similar to this site, and it boast 350 days of sunshine. Energy use-pretty much nothing, except Farmer's wife, which is great because natural vitamin -excellent, and physical labor-magnificent!

So recapping the building project. I had an unfinished laundry room for a good while and decided it was time to complete the project. My laundry room makeover did not cost a single penny!

In case you are wondering what scripture is on the gate: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:14
