Here comes the rain, again...


All of you Illinois residents can blame Patrick for your bad weather tonight. It only ever storms this badly when he leaves for the week. Although, I loved walking to school today in just our shirts and feeling the warm breezes in JANUARY for cripe's sake, I would have rather had icy weather and no potential tornadoes in the freakin winter, thankyouverymuch.

(ah yes. There's the hail outside... lovely.)

I have begun painting!! There is a whole section that I managed to paint the border of during Corinne's nap today. It's a warm brown that will blend in with the other painted walls. I had thought of a different color, but when I actually put the samples on my wall? I just couldn't picture an entire room in that color. So! Brown it is. Should hide the dirt from 3 kids better, anyway, right?


And just so you all can know that I am NOT a neatnick, perfect person (cuz I know you were ALL thinking that. I exude that in my personality, I know...) here are some pictures of my house (if the lightning doesn't zap my computer first. Type faster! No fancy stuff!!) as they really are...


This IS a cleanish boys' room... Trust me....



Yes, my blinds are a bit broken, and there is laundry on the floor. But the walls! See the walls? That's what I did the LAST time Patrick was out of town!And my baby daughter's room... Ok, so the border slightly curves up in the corner... Your point?



At least she gets to wake up to butterflies and fairies over her every morning...

Come on. Show me your messes, if you dare!

I LOVE the color in your little girl's room!!! That is the same color that we had when we had a home in Oregon... sigh... I miss that room. Purple trim and beautiful green... sigh...

You did a great job on all of that painting! Can't wait to see what you do next! :0)

And, yes, that is an IMMACULATELY clean room . . . for a couple of boys.

Oh Tracey, it's great to see your house! Mine looks similiar. There is just no point in trying to keep it perfect, it's simply futile.

Love the colours of all your rooms and you are so like me to point out the little imperfection in Corrine's border! I seriously never would have noticed!

:-)

Totally looks like a house with kids! You should see my house since I have been sick the past 3 weeks, oy! I can tell you are enjoying your new camera.

did you see my post about the dog-urine stained carpet? Talk about GROSS! My husband is the clean freak in our relationship -- so, our house tends to be a bit uncluttered -- but, we only have 1 child too!

Thanks for visiting my blog. Your house does not look as bad as you think. I will have to work on getting some pictures together of my messes to share. It is very nice to meet you. You have adorable children. Take care over there in Illinois...

You are far more ambitious than I ever have been in the painting department, and you're doing a great job. And the mess? Show me the home of a mom with three kids that doesn't look exactly like yours and I'll eat my shoe. ;)

Your daughter's room is beautiful. Messes are messes and lately Messes is all my house is too. What? Share? yeah, uh, maybe. ;)
