Home Improvement

First on the list is the bathroom. We need a whole new shower, new flooring and we wanted to enlarge our closet. Jason’s dad came down (yay!) from NC to do most of the work. He totally rocks.

Jason and I picked out the tub and walls along with a new fixture and as soon as Charley got here he started tearing out the old shower. Thankfully. we have a second bathroom which we have been sharing with the kids for a few days now. Little by little the bedroom is getting dirtier and dirtier while the bathroom is getting better and better. I can’t wait to use our new shower!

One of my favorite things to do is to peruse Lowe’s and HD. We have been there a few times over the past few days. I would love to someday refurbish a house. I know Jason wants to build, but I really enjoy improving things. Charley and I just got back from HD with the new flooring, which we had to go to the North side of town to get, and are almost ready to lay it down. Jason and I painted the bathroom about a year ago, but since we moved the closet it’s going to need to be painted again.

I also have plans to paint the kids bathroom. The walls have a beach theme (gag) and I recently found monster-themed accessories. I plan to paint a tree to complete Nora’s room, but I can’t decide yet what I’m gonna do for Noah. He doesn’t really love anything in particular and he isn’t a baby anymore. When I ask him what he would like to do he shows me about 5 different colors and asks for two or three different themes that do not go together at all. I also need to think about something that will be easy to paint over in case we sell this place. I’d love to do a neutral color and then put the peel and stick shapes, but what I have been able to find has been too girly or childish. I’m sure I will think of something.

Right now I am listening to planes fly over head every few minutes…oh Sun ‘n Fun.

We’ve run into a leaky pipe problem and Jason had to cut a big hole in a perfectly fine wall. Meanwhile I’ve decided to cook chili for dinner even though it is not even remotely cold outside. What I would love to do is take a nap or play some Mario. :o) What I need to do is Accounting homework. As they say, variety is the spice of life!
