The good news......my bedroom has been re-created (which almost didn't happen) and is done. The living room is painted, and the kids room is partly painted. It still needs the detail stripe.
The bad news.....the walls of our new house are evil, as in EVILE, FRU-ITS of the Dev-ILL. I have NEVER seen walls SUCK paint into them as much or as fast before. I needed 3 gallons for the lving room, and it still has issues. 2 gallons for the kids room. And countless re-coats. Good HELL! I don't EVER want to paint again. And I'm pretty sure noone will come help me. Oh, and also, two of the walls in my room, and 2 in the living room are BLOCK! As in plaster. As in IMPOSSIBLE to hang pictures on without a production. I'm DYING! Clearly they didn't get the memo that MY style of hanging pics is, eyeball, slam a nail in and hang. No forethought, no measuring, just hang. How am I s'posed to deal with crap like block walls? Sadness.
On the upside, I found two totally fabulous and adorable trash pieces that i turned to treasure. So excited about that. Oh, and I painted my front door yellow. That's fun, right?
My feet are throbbing.
I've started moving stuff into the house.
My back is ZINGING!
Our new shower is really small. Bummer!
My neck hurts.
The kitchen is huge and fabulous. I can finally house all my random appliances.
Tomorrow will truly be a day of rest. NO thoughts of the house. Just thoughts about workshop. And creating a final word sheet, and maybe learning a song or something.
OH MY GOSH, workshop starts on MONDAY! Me = scared!
And with that, I'm off to dreamland.
Here is a pic of the fantabulous play house I "stole" for 50 bucks! Try not to be jealous. (by the way, this is sitting next to the pool fence that I found for a whopping $110.00 and it fits literally perfectly in the space we needed. Someone is a lookin out for us)
Maggie likes to say...."You get a new house Mommy, so WE got a new house." That's right kid, one for you, one for ME!
