I have been busy around the house but just have not completed anything! This week we have been busy preparing for a graduation ceremony that will take place next month. My middle child will be finishing her high school career. It seems like not too long ago that I sat with her on her first school bus ride. She was going to kindergarten and she was excited for it.
|1st day of school.|
The year was long and short. Here, kindergartners attended school half the day except one day a week when they were there the full day. I hated her being away all day! I will never forget the day that I completely forgot what time the bus came and I was not home when she was to be dropped off. I had to pick her up at the school. She looked so sad. This was surely the most unforgivable mistake ever and I felt awful. Since then it has been a constant stream of goofs and bumbles by mom. I have often said that I think I have learned more from them than they have learned from me. When kindergarten was done we brought her home and have homeschooled ever since. We are not finished yet but we are working on it.
New entryway color and wood floors!
And, because I am a loon, I decided that I was tired of looking at my sad attempt of a gallery wall in the living room. I took everything off the wall and laid it all out on the floor, editing and adding, rearranging and questioning my sanity. It is almost done but not quite so I don't want to post pictures yet. There are two spots that are driving me a little loopy and I haven't figured them out yet.
So, this post is full of un-finished projects and great expectations (at least for me) of what the future will bring.
I don't think I am the only diy-er out there has four or five pans on the fire, at least I hope I am not the only one. Most women I know have at least five projects of some sort going on in their lives. I want to encourage you to press on and change it if it is not working for you. If you're like me and the projects are your homes-take as much time as you need to get it the way you want it. By design, God has made us keepers of the home and it is only natural for us to want to make them beautiful and comfortable. It is where we serve in our most important ministry, our family.
I hope you will continue to be patient with me. I will be sure to write individual posts as the projects get done. There are literally thousands of other blogs you could be reading right now with pretty pictures of finished projects so thank you for spending time with me.
