Getting ready for school

This has been a really busy month for me.I have been getting our house ready for the school year.I have decided to homeschool my fourth grader and my youngest who will just be starting kindergarten. So we had to change things around and try to get organized!!!! I painted the boys room but ran out of paint just as I was almost done with the room.(note to self: pick up more paint!!!!) I made the boys a desk.I changed around the dining room so we can put another computer in there for them to do school work.So far so good now all we have to do is finish the rest of the house!!!!!!

Bathroom plans

The bathroom didn't happen this weekend.I guess we will try to plan a different weekend.I had a very lazy Saturday.I did go to a wine tasting.That is always exciting.The big accomplishment was picking up paint for my younger boys room so sometime this weekend I will start cleaning out the room and tape off molding.

Feeding ducks

Today my dad stopped by.He lives in Chicago but never calls to tell us he is coming over.I am always surprised when he arrives.I should be used to it by now.Well "luckily"
we were home so there was not too much drama!!!!! My dad is the guy who always looks after our cars and it never fails that the day he shows up my car happens to be low on
oil,then I get the riot act!!!! Today was no exception but instead of being low on oil it was coolant so I got a lecture.To "distract" my dad the kids and I took him to the lake to fish.That always makes him happy!!!! I fed the ducks which was really fun and everyone had a great time!!!! We then went out to eat and off to Chicago he went!!!!!

Batrhroom progress

This weekend my husband's brother is coming to do some work on the downstairs bathroom.We think we will have him put in the toilet and the floors.Hopefully that will
help us to finish this project.We only have the upstairs bathroom and let me tell you ,it is not enough!!!!!!!!! I plan on taking some leisurely baths when this is all done.We are putting in a vintage claw foot tub that was my B-day present 2 years ago!!!!! (This year we went on a small vacation to North Carolina on my birthday weekend)So I have patiently waited for my bathroom!!!!!!!
