This week I got a wild hair. Now when most people get a wild hair they go get a milkshake or something. Not me. Nope. I get a wild hair and decide to give our house an extreme home makeover.
This is something I've been wanting to do for a while, and I figured there is no time like the present!
So here you go...
Looks way better doesn't it?!?!
It was exhausting work to say the least, but I was able to do it in 3 days. Since Bren was working I did 90% of the work ALL BY MYSELF!
I still can't believe it. I love it. I am proud of myself for putting my mind to something and finishing it!
I am also so grateful for Bren. He is such a trooper! He came home from work one day with his children running around like a bunch of orphans and his house half painted. He just gave me a thumbs up and jumped in to help. I think at this point nothing I do surprises him! When I was completely spent after laying a stone front porch ( yes, I did that too! ) he stepped in after a long day at work and helped finished the job.
He is the ultimate team mate and helper... for that I am grateful!
The boys... oh yes... my little orphans. They ran around for days, dirty, covered in paint and cement, and completely off schedule.
Collins had to put himself down for a nap.
Jack was more than eager to get messy with me.
My boys are going to think that our crazy life is normal. Maybe one day I'll explain that they have a crazy mother and this is not normal :)
Other than that it has been life as normal...
Sorry for the long post. I wanted to throw everything in because who knows when I will post again :)
