Getting back into the swing of things is proving to be a bit overwhelming. Lots going on here. First, thanks for the kind comments and overwhelming emails about my mom. I want to write you all back….but it may take a bit. Talk about small world….yesterday my doorbell rang and standing at the door was a woman with flowers and a card. She has read my blog for a while and we’ve emailed from time to time (sharing local resources as she is a designer) but never met. Her mom has stage iv cancer and was recently diagnosed. In any case, she saw my post and decided to come over to express her sympathy. We were in the middle of a playdate and the kids were running wild in dress up clothes…..but her kindness touched me and brought tears to my eyes.
I had a frustrating call with my web designer yesterday. The budget has blown up and to say the site is nowhere near completion at this point is a major understatement. I had to practice deep breathes…and decided an afternoon playdate would be more fun than getting more angry. It is amazing how the kids having fun can brighten the mood (Maddie is obsessed with her mermaid costume that arrived last week…..hope it is still in tact by Halloween! All playdates start with princess dress-up!!!!)
Tomorrow, we have our stair runner being installed. I am excited….and a tad nervous….
And finally, I have a project in process that I want to complete this weekend. These two photos have been blown up huge and I am using them in a project for a blank wall in our playroom.
My inspiration for this project was found here (via Pinterest, of course). I hope it doesn’t turn into a DIY disaster but if so, I’ve spent next to nothing on the materials so may as well try! Right? I am feeling eager to get my house finished by the holidays!
What do you have on tap in the coming days?
