I *thought* I had a half finished blog post draft saved, but when I went to find it, it was gone.
It’s been SO BUSY around here that I have had barely enough time to think, much less write.
I am NOT going to post more pics of the back room til I get more decorating done- most people are shocked currently by the incredibly orange walls LOL! It has to be entirely finished to understand… I am doing a hippie dippy music theme melange in there. I feng shui’d the CRAP outta that room, to boot.
Here is a rundown of what happened:
~Finished the back room drywalling and painted the walls/ceiling.
~Added an area rug that the neighbors didn’t want anymore
~Moved the sofa bed from the front porch(!!) to the back room
~Assembled and set up the desk
~They took away the dumpster(and I miss it already)
We still have to:
~Finish decorating back room
~Move the rest of our clothes from the back room closet to the master bedroom walk in closet
~Get all of Sam’s crap that’s piled to the ceiling out of the dining room
~Hang the Ikea Kirp shelves for his video games and books
~Wait for the art to arrive from Thailand
What else I did (mostly purchases for back room):
~Ordered curtain panels from India
ordered 4 panels of these ganesha elephant curtains
~Ordered white wooden plantation blinds for the windows
~Ordered some awesome throw pillows for the sofa
I admit, I ordered this one because it appealed more to me than it would to my son
this album isn’t his fave, but I love the quirky cover art
The dumpster was taken away last Friday… I must admit, I am really sad to see it go.
View from my porch… it was almost TOO full by the time they came to get it
bye bye dumpster…
We will probably be renting another one in a month when we start the downstairs bathroom renovations. This thing was almost TOO full by the time they took it back. R and the rest of the guys spent the last day filling it with refuse and junk from the basement and garage. They didn’t even bother telling me what they were tossing out- I told them not to.
Sam leaves tomorrow for the Pax Prime convention in Seattle and will be gone for a week. My dad has cataract surgery tomorrow morning and will be spending the night here because it’s closer to his doctor’s. Connor and Maisie’s birthdays (and my dad’s) are coming up in the next 2 weeks- and school starts on the 8th!
I have to devote my time to finding birthday presents, planning parties, getting back-to-school supplies, AND CLEANING THIS F*CKING HOUSE UP! I am toying with the idea of hiring some of the cleaning out at this point.
2 of our Dyson vacuum cleaners decided to die within a week of each other. The last one started going out 2 days ago. This is not good when you have 3 giant, perpetually shedding Newfoundland dogs.
Also, last but not least, Maisie is finally starting to walk!
