So this week has been hectic!
It was Teacher Appreciation Week sponsored by the PTO.
Guess who is PTO President?!
The principal is also retiring (sniffsniff). He is such a wonderful man to have as a role model for your children. He knows every kids name. And remembers them!
I laid down in his office and told him I wasn't moving til I spied that damn candy bar in the corner....
Let's say my sit in/lay down did not last long.
I managed a few hours to squeak in some cleaning around the house.
As I was giddily cleaning the girls room cause they have done an awesome job, really they did, keeping it clean. I realized something.
It was off.
It was not what I had envisioned.
I think it is the wall color.
Then I went into the boys room. He has also been superb at keeping his room clean too. I guess bitching and whining does work on men under 18!
Yeah, it wasn't working for me here either.
Now a quick clean in the living room and foyer cause these are projects waiting to happen.
Then onto the kitchen....
The kitchen I just painted in August last year.
I don't like that color either....
Do you see a trend here?
I need to repaint!
The whole frigging house!
Well.... except for my bedroom cause I can live with that....
So I got out some paint and painted some "samples".
The color I like in the kitchen I don't like in the living room and foyer.
The girls room I am thinking a really light grey for the walls.
An old vintage iron bed in white....
Maybe some quilts?
Gotta have a puddled bedskirt!
The boy likes his curtains.
What color in the kitchen would make ironstone pop?!
I still need a clock too....
Now after a trip to the helpful SW store I am armed with a new paint deck.
A paint deck they just gave me I believe they gave me out of desperation.
To get me out of their store.
When did they make so many colors of white?
Now I am left with a paint deck, a stack of options and two kids who "iduncare"!
I also have an award that I got.
The very ubercool Lori @ Wildflowers gave me!
If you don't know already I just LOVE Lori!
Aunt Flo (wink wink) is visiting and I will address this as soon as she leaves!
Sean Connery did pop up though.
Happy Mothers Day to all!
Kiss your bitty ones and the ones that are "too old" to be kissed!
Just think of it as a drunken Irish holiday!
Erin Go Bragh!
