1. The ceilings in our basement are done and I’ve cleaned up most of the dust. Now comes the part I really suck at: picking paint colors. I spent a ridiculous amount of time at the local Benjamin Moore paint store and came home with a color I hated LOL. Yesterday, I took Jones back and let him pick two colors for me to try. Guess what? They rock. One color we’ll use for the big, light filled room, the other we’ll use for the small bedroom and the hallway that gets very little natural light. Note to self: take the artist in the family for color related decisions. (Now comes the next part I hate: the actual painting, sigh.)
2. I know I’ve mentioned lately that I have a lot on my plate. Much of it is winding down, but sometimes just getting through the last few days is killer. I’ve been staying up until midnight most nights and back up at 6 am most mornings. I could survive like that, except for, you guessed it, insomnia. I fall asleep fine, but if anything wakes me up, I can.not. go back to sleep. I really need a brain with an on/off switch or a mute button or something! On the bright side, preschool council meetings are over, there’s only one more PTA meeting and then I’m done with my gig as secretary, I only have two more articles to write for the neighborhood newsletters before the summer hiatus, and one half of the big project I’m working on will go live today or tomorrow and the other half will be done Sunday! Light at the end of the tunnel, baby!
3. Yesterday was Shoo’s last singalong at preschool. It’s hard to believe that in 1.5 weeks, he’ll be done. My baby is heading to kindergarten. It seems like just yesterday that I was fighting postpartum depression with Jones and suddenly I have a 9 year old and a 5 year old. In less than four months, they’ll both be at the same school. I’m excited and sad at the same time.
Where did my baby go?
Rock on, my friends. It’s Thursday, which means it’s the day before Friday. Woot!
