{Rock Paper Scissors at the vet with Jack} Painting… two of our three bathrooms on Saturday while Josh had the kids at the land with his parents and brother.  I started with the downstairs bathroom which had been a color called pumpkin marshmallow.  I painted it a soothing green-ish color called Breezeway by Behr, and I love the result.  When we paint the trim, it’s going to look really sharp in there. Then I moved on to our master bedroom,…

“Mornings” by Carly Reading… Searching for Sylvie Lee on audio and finishing Maybe You Should Talk to Someone.  Searching for Sylvie Lee had me listening every minute I got the chance.

Squeezing… the last bit of fun out of Spring Break by renting Bumblebee for the kids for movie night and letting Wyatt have his friend over for pizza & cookies with us,…

Watching… Christopher Robin with Logan, Wyatt & Carly on movie night. It was such a cute movie, I didn’t want to miss a minute. Pooh said so many quotable things!!

Undecorating… for the holidays.  I did this slowly, over the course of several days, which is very unlike me, but the boys’ school schedule was weird this year…
