I moved

M bedroom, that is. The bedroom MrH was building in the basement is finally finished and last night we moved our bed and a dresser into it. Hooray, it was so nice to finally sleep in here. Now I have my work cut out for me rearranging the kids' bedrooms and everything, I am sure I will get no "paid" work done today, which sucks because I didn't yesterday either. Or the day before. Whatever- they don't approve them right away anyways, I fear that whatever I've done over the past week will sit in limbo for months. Anyway- I took a few pictures of the finished room, I'm working on 3 different computers right now, so once I get into the one that has the before pictures, I'll post the befores and afters together.

Dust & More Remodeling.

We're ripping out more basement walls, the painting in that bedroom is finished, and the bathroom is finished- I just need grout for the floor tiles. But before we put the carpet into the bedroom, we want to have the walls in the "kid cave" finished and painted. It's going to look so nice down there- I wish I had taken a before picture. I wish I could believe that the after picture would have pretty furniture. Anyhow, the dust from ripped out walls is driving me nuts. It is absolutely disgusting. And the bottom part of the wall has mold on it, so we've been spritzing it with bleach but really, it's just so icky. What to do, what to do?

Eating Popcorn in the Living Room

Why are kids so into this? Don't they understand about greasy fingers? Crumbs?

yeah, they have no clue why it's such a big deal for us and the reason is because dammit I don't want to clean it up. So I found a solution.

Throw a picnic blanket (old King Size sheet) on the Living room floor and allow them to eat their snacks on the blanket. It will be easier to clean up the mess just by bunching up the sheet and shaking it on the back lawn. Any spilled popcorn will become bird food, or melt away whenever it gets wet.

Have fun on your Family Film Festival
