I thought I'd be so creative and productive and finish a couple of my lingering projects.
But I won't have my sewing machine back until April 8th! Not like I have an Easter dress or anything to finish! Oh well. Things could be worse.
It's funny how I used to have no fear in hanging stuff up on my walls, and if I didn't like something, oh well! I'd just move it over, play around with it, and make it work. Somewhere along the way, though, the fear of messing things up grabbed hold of me, and I've been a hesitant decorator ever since. (Maybe because I know how hard it is to finally finish pairing a room with 4 kiddos underfoot!) When I say hesitant, what I really mean is I'll just learn to love those bare, empty, freshly painted walls.
Hello stuff on the walls in the home office/music room. I've missed you.
Yes, I know the spacing looks a bit off...it's part of the plan, I tell ya! There's more to come...
On Saturday morning, I had my personal little army of Swifferers, cabinet washers, vacuumers, and bathroom cleaners. Our house sparkled and shone! And of course we worked our little hineys off to some loud, fun music (love those Big Time Rush fellas, ha!). It was like a pre-mini-Spring cleaning session, sans the open windows, unfortunately. The mercury never rose above 38 all day!
We had plans for something fun on Saturday night.
But this looks way more fun, right? Poor Bill.
Just so we're clear, yes, this is what I would consider "a worse."
At least there was pizza for dinner. Yay Pizza Hut!
And yummy stuff for breakfast- the bacon was still cooking. Turkey bacon, that is, even though Dr. Oz says that real bacon is better for you. I can't get over all the grease! Turkey has virtually none, much easier to deal with. That said, today however, I got a random spatter of grease on my wrist- ouch!- and then another on my bathrobe...I'm a perpetual chef-in-a-robe, and I do my very best cleaning in my nightshirt- sorry, was that TMI?...And THEN, the cinnamon roll icing squirted out onto the front of my robe, and I sloshed orange juice all over the right sleeve! That's what I get when I abandon the apron, I guess.
Luke doesn't seem to mind the turkey alternative. :)
The message this morning at church was amazing! Don't you love it when you know God is talking directly to you through the pastor? It was all about listening to God's promptings, and having the faith and courage to say "YES" to Him, even when you have no idea how it will all work.
Ethan asked if he could watch his Toby Mac DVD after we got home. I love some of his songs, and others? I don't love them. Not at all. But he's a great Christian man, and my boys look up to him, so I will gladly wear my ear muffs for their benefit, ha!
It's freezing cold again today, and sooo windy! I can handle the cold, but the wind just plain aggravates me. Isabelle has a new cough and an extremely runny nose, so I'm afraid to even let her out today, poor baby. Maybe we'll take a nice, long nap instead! I'm sure she'll be thrilled! :)
Have a blessed Sunday!
Oh, I almost forgot....in a hasty moment of fearless wonderment, I tried on a pair of pants I've been working so hard to fit into, ie inspiration pants, and...they fit! There's no stopping me now!!!
