Here is the best picture I could find in my archives of the project before me today–paint the dresser in the girl’s room.
I am actually undecided if I am going to paint the whole thing, or just the inside of the drawers. (Which is, incidentally, the reason I am painting it in the first place. While I love the smell of an antique–I do NOT like that smell on baby clothes!)
I also have a bit of repair work to do, notice the third drawer down. I was super mad at myself when I did that, but thankfully I saved the piece that broke off. Last time I checked it fit perfectly back on. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that during the move I didn’t mess it up:) Now if I can just find the glue…..
I just might drag Holly’s bookcase outside too. (no picture of that–sorry) That needs painting even worse, and I mean really–what else am I going to do on a 75 degree March day?! We are looking at a whole weekend of weather like that so I am really hoping to bust through some projects that have been sitting around here for far too long.
The girls spent their second whole night together last night. Holly apparently can sleep through anything, as she didn’t wake up at all, and Marie had me up THREE times. Not even when Marie was a newborn did she get up that much at night…..I seriously don’t even want to put her in her room if that’s what it is going to mean! When she sleeps in the bassinet next to me she doesn’t get up at all. (Thursday night she slept 730-530am without waking, no kidding!) She doesn’t even go down easy for the night in her room, often carrying on for 30-40 minutes. (Again, in the bassinet she just goes to sleep.) Let’s keep our fingers crossed that she soon figures out that the crib is her home now for the next few years, it’s so hard to see her upset. Seriously, I have the happiest baby who NEVER cries–and now, well I am just stressing her out with all of this self-soothing stuff!
I have been working on my project list (the one I mentioned in an earlier post that is inspired by the awesome Elise Blaha) and so far I have came up with the name (Forty before Forty) and a list of MORE than forty things I want to get done before I turn forty. Need. To. Edit. And seriously need to find a lot of energy.
It appears Marie has finally given up the fight and is down for her morning nap. That means I have about thirty minutes (when will they get longer?!?!) to mop the kitchen floor, get my painting station set up, and do laundry.
Have a great weekend. Project Life is going to be really full this week–just might be an insert! I can hardly believe it’s the eleventh week of the year already!
*****oh and if you are wondering the puzzles are still not hung. However, the paper templates are no longer on the wall. Baby steps is all we can muster around this crazy house right now!
