So tomorrow I am being completely irresponsible (thanks to my friend Jewelia who is helping me out) and am going skiing with a friend of mine - all day....on a school day..... leaving my 'creative' 2 year old in the care of another..... ditching out on my carpool responsibilities....leaving my house in its chaotic state.......I can't wait!!!
I went skiing Saturday with my little sister Britter and the snow was Unbelievable~! We had so much fun... It was some of The Best skiing we've ever had.......6 feet of snow in the last 4 or 5 days - Ski Utah baby! It doesn't get much better than that... I have to have more.
Just in case you get that mysterious 24 hour bug, (although it's a little hard for stay at home moms to call in sick) go to Utahskiweather.com - great site for ski conditions.
If I was really responsible I would stay home and work on my 'little project'.
The last couple of weeks we have been a little out of sorts and living with some remodeling.
My house is currently in a state of unrest and dishelvelment. We decided to get new carpet in the bedrooms, but you know what that means = You can't buy the dress without buying the shoes! So, off with the doors, off with the old brass hardware, paint all the trim, paint all the doors, paint the walls, replace the lights, live with all of your bedroom furniture in the kitchen! The whole process was going well, and then I sort of hit a wall. Just a little more painting to go, but alas, it's been sitting there in its unfinished state for a week or so.....I'm so tired of painting! But tonight I made some progress and I'll finish up this week - My hubby has been so paitient. We are living with our bathroom being the command center for all of the paint and supplies and half the toys are put away, half are out with no place to go, doors are off of their hinges in the hallway waiting to be put back up.....It is beautiful! Come on over and just enjoy this with us! The good part about all of this is that it will feel so fresh and updated.....It will definately be worth it if I can just get it finished!
My kids, on the other hand are loving it! Krispy Kremes for weekend breakfast, making forts out of the mattresses stacked against the kitchen table, playing hide and seek in the maze of furniture piled in the front room. Kids love that stuff!! These are what memories are made of!
