Sunday, Sunday

Hello!!! A busy weekend, but a good one...

First of all, the room is PAINTED! And I feel like doing that Tim Allen grunt here (oah, oah, OAH!) as I am a wonder woman who can move heavy desks, couches, a piano, bookshelves and computers all by herself! Isn't it an empowering feeling to be physically able? Other than finding the screwdriver to finish installing the bookshelves and moving the piano the last 6 inches (it got stuck in a dip in the carpet) I did it all. And I am totally patting myself on the back. I'd be posting pictures of it but for 2 reasons:
1. I haven't bought any of the new accessories I want to finish it off. I'm thinking Hobby Lobby in the next few days...
2. my camera still won't let me delete so I have no space on it!! Patrick promised to look into it as I still haven't the dvd into the player to watch the demo. I hate demos...

Another fun thing was meeting Christina from A Mommy Story! She brought little Mira with her, and let me tell you, that baby is every bit as adorable as her pictures! I even got to witness a few of her hard-earned baby smiles which are just precious. It was also nice to know that no matter how long Justin whined about the ice cream (McD's was soft serve only. He can't stand smooth and "melty" foods like that), or Evan bounced off of the walls (he knocked down half a rack of clothes in Hanna Anderson) or Corinne attacked people (she pinched a little boy at the Hanna Anderson's bead toy. Literally knocked him down and had her way. But the mom was so nice about it...) Christina was going to say she understood. And actually, despite the kids being less than pride-generating, it was a nice afternoon. Of course, neither of us remembered to take a picture... doh.

We are off to my niece's 2nd birthday party today! Looking forward to a party that isn't as high stress as Christmas parties can be and just hanging out with my family. Hope you all are having a relaxing weekend!

Totally jealous of your blogging superstar hook-up! That sounds like fun, even if the kids were monkeys! :)

Good job doing that painting and furniture moving by yourself!

It's nice to meet other moms ... they really do tend to understand when the kiddos are "less than pride-generating" (love that phrase, might have to borrow it sometime!!!)

Don't you hate it when you forget to take pictures? I do that all the effing time!! Must mean you were having a really good time, with no pause for pics!

Kami said...

YAY for the painting being done and for you being wonderwoman!

It's so fun to meet cyberfriends in real life :-)

Kami said...

Bwahahahahahaha!

I love your description, it's bang on.

I wish I could accept my tummy though!

I just ordered a nice tankini from Land's End!

I am notorious for forgetting the camera. I usually rely on my husband for that one!

Yay onthe mommy meet-up, I hope to meet a fellow blogger later this week, I love meeting other bloggers, what a great community!

Can't wait to see the completed painting and decor, sounds fun!

Kathryn said...

Another 5 family household! Yeah! Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I'm so glad we "met" because I love your site.
Nice to meet you!

Congrats on a good job done with the painting! I may have to hire you to come and paint my family room for me! (I will of course move all the furniture for you) :)

Your blog friend visit sounded interesting and fun, too bad no pictures. I'd have loved to see your daughter "taking down" another toddler and putting the pinch move on him! Too funny!

I have to say that I am utterly impressed with your handiness and painting skills, can't wait to see what it looks like!

Kailani said...

Isn't that always the case? The one day you want your kids to behave, they run rampant! LOL! It's so cool that you were able to meet a blogging friend in person!

Whoo-Hoo. You deserve every bit of that pride you feel in your painting accomplishment. Looking forward to the photos.

And it's so cool meeting blog friends, isn't it?

Christina said...

It was great to meet you, too! And your kids were very well-behaved considering they were in a mall filled with STUFF! I was just like them when I was younger.

And I think Corinne has a future in wrestling. That boy was twice as big as her and she took him down without breaking a sweat or making a sound. I'm impressed.

I feel ya today, sister. Not physically, of course. It's been one of those days for me too. Good observations on the paintings. On the first one, I was going to mention that I thought I spotted a turtle up in the left-hand corner. I'll have to go and look at Hailey's artwork that I hung on the fridge today and see if anything jumps out at me, besides the gobs of paint on the paper.
