This morning I hit the ground running, knowing we had nothing on the agenda. I had some croissants left over from when we had chicken salad the other day. I decided to cut them in half, spread nutella in the middle and close it back up. It was just as good as any chocolate croissant I’ve ever eaten at a cafe. Yum!

Since I’ve been on a roll lately with keeping the house clean, laundry folded and put away as soon as it comes out of the dryer, dishes where they belong, blah, blah, blah, I decided to pick something big on my “Deep Cleaning/Re-Organizing” to-do list. My bathroom has been half finished for over a year. The color no longer tickles my fancy and I’m ready for a change; all the way to the finish preferably. I’ve decided to repaint my bathroom the same color as my kitchen, which is just a subtle blue/gray. It is light, but not baby nursery light. I’ll definitely take before and afters. I’m doing it right this time; 100%. I took down every single thing that could be removed from the walls. I wiped the walls down with a wet cloth, spackled all holes and imperfections, pulled off a few remaining remnants of the 40 year old wallpaper that was removed when we moved in four and a half years ago. Now I’ll have to wait, likely all weekend, before I can actually paint. I may, in the meantime, paint the vanity while I wait. The vanity is small, with two small drawers and four cabinets. I think a coat of white, high gloss paint and some simple new hardware would really spruce the thing up.

I’ve also decided to let the boys help me throw around some ideas to revamp their room. As I’ve said before, I’m really tired of the sand color throughout the living room, hallway, and boys’ room, so I’m going to start changing it, a little at a time. I have no idea what I’m going to do in the boys’ room, but I’d like them to help me decide and we’ll repaint and choose new window treatments.

We’re keeping someone else’s foster children tomorrow, tomorrow night, and until after church on Sunday. My boys are spending the night with my in-laws so the sleeping arrangements for the foster children will be simplified. As a result, I won’t get anything more done on the house until next week. But thankfully, we have another wide open week, so I foresee lots of creativity and productivity!

Pictures to come!

Have a great weekend!!
