Its been a long week and it is only Monday. Cheers to drinking and blogging time!
I have had a LONG previous week and it shows....
Check the uniform. I only wish you could see my eyebrows up close.
So I made is through last week of one day of kids at school, Joe's tooth extraction- (round 3 was a success!) He likes waiting rooms. Takes after me, its the only time I really get to enjoy a mag too...
Any issues we were given with him have been counterbalanced with his super happy disposition.
Would you be this happy after surgery? He told me it was awesome (P.S. he was out cold for it).
So enter the weekend.
Big bro is now sick. Sick Saturday, Sunday and MONDAY. My kids have now been home for a solid week. I needed to do something, I was climbing walls.
What to do with lethargic children?
Take advantage of their couch potato state and rearrange the shit out of my house. All I had to do was pick them up off one couch and put them on another.
Listen, I was stuck in the house too long. I was hating all my unfinished stuff. I was hut happy.
So I did what any insane person would do. Rearrange for the 105th time, slipcover and make pillows. And drag an 8' long dining table through a 30" doorway because I am too impatient to wait 4 hours for my husband to get home. So Project Hot mess got hotter...
and bluer and fuschia-ier too. Dining table is back where it started. Seats are going blue...
Lets go back 2 months ago right after the last rearrangement....
Better yet lets do a montage of the past 20 months and see my madness with this space. I truly hate it. It is too big and long, & well I just can't get it right. And I also blame it on being constantly exposed to design and ADD.
5/2011 trying to make chintz cool
summer 2010- liked this, should have kept it
and now the
dining room, family room, living room looks like this currently...
(note the potato on the couch)
I have some of this to go on the walls, and I intend to spray it with a little razzle dazzle before hanging...
And instead of boring you with another montage, I will just show you what it used to look like before we bought it and I screwed with it too many times...
Starsky & Hutch.
So. Yes. I have freaking huge issues.
And the cold bug better not spread to the little one, because I REALLY need a day out of this place.
And I really need to get a hobby, besides turning my space upside down.
