The other day I wrote down everything that needed to be done with in the next two week and then had to sit down and compose myself.
Have you ever had those moments?
How am I suppose to get this all done?
Curse the Check List!?!
We were able to check off most of the remodel and renovation of the outside of the house.
We laid the bricks at the window sills but we need to take it off again because we are not brick masons and it shows.
My grandfather was a carpenter so I was out there telling my husband "how to do it" because I was a kid and use to help (hinder) my grandpa with brick laying. We decide to "sleep" on it and the next morning made the big decision to take them off. I think my dad will have to get involved with this one. Actually I don't think it looked to bad from a great distance but knowing that both my husband and I are perfectionists we knew we would not be able to live with it.
Now a job back on the check list.
Then the registration for my daughter to High School and my son to Middle School--all on line now!
Yes, there were (what my daughter calls) "choice USDA words" involved.
Did I mention Merit Badges yet? Swimming, Environmental Science, Wood carving, Bird Study, Space Exploration....some done, others we are working on.
Teenage driver. She is doing very well. Still happy I am already white haired.
The good news...I received a custom order and had the excuse to paint!!! Got this far and was interrupted. Hope to finish it soon!!
Betty, our humming pigeon (as my son is calling her) has flown the nest. I don't think the babies survived. I did climb up on the tramp and it looked like the babies had hatched but I couldn't tell if they were alive because the branch was still a bit to high.
Then my neighbor came out and looked a bit stunned that I was tip toeing on the tramp pulling on the tree branch...it was not pretty getting down to go make small talk.
Well with that vision in your head I will try to squeeze in some painting. Please do not have nightmares on my behalf!
