School started this week, my 2nd and 4th graders started on Monday and my 7th, 10th, and 12th graders started on Tuesday. I had really thought I would homeschool this year, but I chickened out in the end. We will see how this year goes and go from there.
We squeezed in a quick trip to LL Bean to get new back packs this weekend and then ran around getting other errands done, all the while still working on my youngest daughter's room that got flooded by the washing machine. We painted the room, then tore up the carpet. Hubby and my 16 yr old son put down the new floor on Saturday. They were frustrated, tired, and complained a bit, but they did a good job and got it done. (THANK YOU Dear!!) Hubby then put in the trim work on Sunday. Now we just need to do some caulking and touch up paint and it will be done. Of course, we still need to finish painting her bed and cupboard white, but that will wait until this weekend.
Here is a look at her new wild floor. Ya, not so prim, huh? That's ok, it's her room and she has to like it for the 5 years or so. Plus, it's just a floating laminate, so it will be easy to replace when the time comes.
It will be a bit before I can show the complete "after" shots of the room, as there is still so much to do. And I am still working on and maintaining other parts of the house, and the little prince(aka Mason) has major mommyitis still :) And don't get me started on the outside of the house, I have so much yard work to do, but I'm waiting for the cool weather before I tackle that. Ok, enough whining.
Have a terrific day,
