We have heat again thank you to our wonderful neighbor! The temperature didn't get terribly low in the house until Wednesday and then it was down right cold! Our house always felt "cold" before the furnace went out and now I think we know why....we were headed for a breakdown. Not having and then having something as simple as heat really makes a person appreciate the simple joys of life.
The boys went back to school yesterday after having two snow days off plus a few 2 hour delays. I think they were ready to go back and I'm sure Carl was ready for them to go back also (Carl works from home so he has been "stuck" with the boys for those days).
I haven't been blogging much lately - feel "wordless"; tired when I get home from work and then trying to get things finished at home equals writers block.
Here is what I've been working on this week. If you've read my previous post, you've seen the picture that I painted for the bathroom. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I also finished the window that I've been working on for a while. I decided to just paint it black, sand a little bit, then put a darker stain on it. As you can see in the picture, I put a red wreath on it and I'll change it out with the holidays/seasons.
And, I finished the bookcase - finally!! Kyle and Ryan's trophies are on there plus Ryan's books. Ryan wanted to be in the picture and he's such a sweetie that I couldn't say no - just don't ask about his outfit - it's something with the boys in his class this year. Pure silliness.
