Life has been busy. I'm working a lot more and days off are spent putting the house back together and running errands. I've been thinking a lot lately, especially today, about doing some redecorating. Our poor little kitchen is in desperate need of a face lift and I think now would be the perfect time to do it. It seems like decorating the house is usually the last thing on the list, but I'm making an executive decision and putting it higher on our list of priorities.
So, I'll start in the kitchen and work my way down through the rest of the house. The biggest thing for the kitchen would be the counter tops. I am willing to give up food and alcohol in order to get new counter tops (summer is coming up; two birds, one stone). They are a HUGE eyesore, not to mention a hazard to small people of a certain height (owen????) due to the fact that several tiles have fallen off at random points throughout our time in this house. By the way, I would like to take a minute to point out to my husband that all of these plans will be far less expensive than purchasing a new house. Therefore, in the event that the current economic situation forces us to remain in our house for the foreseeable future, I suggest we do some minor surgery, on the inside for a change, and in return I promise to make your life a lot easier.
We are not the neatest people so one thing is for certain: We need to make a commitment to being more organized and picking up after ourselves and our son. Its a joint effort and one that I will gladly spearhead into fruition. I'm off work for the next three days while Brooke takes a much needed vacation to Colorado so I plan to research exactly what I want to do for the kitchen and start making a long list for spring cleaning. Helen will be here for Owen's birthday at the end of the month and I just know she will be ready and willing to help me, regardless of whether its decorating or cleaning.
how do you feel about baseboards Nana? You and Owen can do it together .... you'll have so much fun, promise.
The boys got haircuts the other day and they look so cute. I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the wonderful job JJ did on Owen's hair. Its salon quality if you ask me.
Here's an early birthday shout out for Uncle Adam. Can't wait to celebrate when you get out here.
