Palo Verdes are starting to bloom here; not the greatest pics but they are beautiful!
I would have kids to care for and my husband was dealing with some issues at work that kept him there 12 or so hours a day so having workers in and out of the house during the week seemed to be the straw that would break the camels back. Some how I managed the week here taking care of the kids and juggling other work?responsibilities?with furniture piled up in my craft room/office, and in the kitchen and dining room. I have extension cords running all over the place! Let me tell you, it was a week destined to prove exactly what I am made of - and I am not all that proud of how I handled a few things.?
I did learn two new things though; I am NOT as super of a Super Granny as I had thought. I have my limitations and sometimes Gramma needs a time out and a nap! I also learned that we have 250 square feet of floor space more than I thought and we had to get more carpet. With carpet in only a couple of rooms and all the walls empty I had time to look around and think about my decor and lay out of my furniture. Don't?worry! I am in love with my new carpet color and still LOVE my wall color (even more now that it is not fighting with dark blue carpet!) but I have had a chance to see that I can make some?improvements?with furniture arrangement and yet another de-cluttering! The poor man of the house has been walking on eggs shells fearful of any new ideas I might have and what that may mean in terms of more DIY projects for him! Ha! Only a couple of things my dear! Only a couple!?
All is well that ends well! I will give you an update next week hopefully with pics ;) I did spend a couple of hours last Saturday with my kids and grand kids and it was a nice break.?I do hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend and I would love to hear about it! Want to leave a comment and tell us about it??
