Heyyyoooooo

This is a bloggy-fail kind of day. But I make up for it with pretty pictures of the work so far!

My Uncle is so wonderful and he has done a lot of work on the bathroom and the front flowerbed already. Unfortunately, working with him and managing babies has left me barely any time to breathe, let alone write. So here we are with a mini-post and a promise for Quiet Thoughts on Friday, though don’t ask me what they are gonna be about… uh… uh oh, I just realized that Friday is gonna be crappy for writing.

*sigh*

Okay okay okay… focus. We can do this.

(Who’s “we”? I’m losing my mind.)

PICTURES, GO!

 

The pictures never come out well, but basically the walls have been prepped and primed and ready for paint. The bathtub, same thing! Dust has been cleared, bad paint, disappeared!

Close-up on the tub. No peeling or chipping paint!!

Work has started on the outside flowerbed. My Uncle cleared out all of the milkweed and other crap that was growing there. He's going to plant pretty white azalea bushes there.

My Uncle is kinda  hobby horticulturalist and has a million plants at his house. He brought me this one and plopped it outside and it started blooming this morning! So pretty! Don't ask me what it is.

So, to reiterate: Blogging = fail. Home improvement = win. Friday = Mission Impossible.

I’ve totally read a bunch of comments from Wednesday and I will reply to everyone because I want to and it makes me happy (and because some old friends stopped by and I got really excited when I saw some familiar screen names!). It’s just another week of nonsense around here and I’m having a rare moment of not having it all together…

So see you Friday for screaming at the top of my lungs hysterically  Quiet Thoughts.

    1. I find the blog to be really helpful to get all of my thoughts out of my head. It’s like meditation, really. So I try to carve out the scheduled time to do it. And I sincerely feel bad when I don’t do it because I know that there are people who regularly tune in. It’s good motivation, you know?

      How is the college thing going!?!? Are you…uh… close to a decision?

      1. My exams are done – I find out in August whether I did well enough to get in. 🙂

        That’s kind of why I keep a journal. Whereas I blog in the hope that somebody in the world actually cares, ha ha.
