Right now Tommy is singing "Old MacDonald Had a farm" in a terrible British accent and Mary is laughing hysterically.
When I first thought about starting to write this, he was bottling his most recent batch of beer and little-bit was sleeping off the teething terriblness that has made her a cranky whiny-pants for the last three days. We even had to cancel going to my cousin's baby's baptism because poor thing had such bad diarrhea yesterday...
I'm so sorry. I'll stop. Why am I going on about this? You do not want to hear about her diaper rash and about the things we aren't doing. *self-face-slap* Get it together, dweej.
Okay, so Tommy was bottling and I was doing this:
Okay fine, I wasn't...whatever one imagines when one sees our pictures of a bashed up dining room table top. I was cleaning and sanding and priming it so I can finally PAINT it so that the laundry room can be finally, finally totally finished. Woo hoo! Almost done!
Except for the peg board. I still need that.
Oh, and the window treatments, too.
See, as I was telling Jenna (Jenna came over again! Woo hoo!) last night, I suffer from the unfortunate combination of perfectionism and tight-wadness. Finishing any project to my liking takes a really, really, really long time because everything I find is either ugly (I'm looking at you every single curtain for sale at Meijer) or insanely expensive (custom contertops and matching backsplash anyone?).
ANYWAY!!!! Where the heck am I going with this? The never ending renovation project, teething baby....oh! And this cute photo of my three biggest kids with two of their best friends from Friday afternoon. Paul can finally be one of the "big kids" sometimes and I am so excited for him. His job was to carry cans from one location to another and man, he felt extremely grown-up shouldering that awesome responsibility. Even though he tried to act non-plussed when he got home, mama could tell. Mama can always tell.
Alright, come back Monday if you voted "yes" to the curriculum run-down. Even if you didn't vote, come back anyway.
