Well we have FINALLY started the long and painful process of painting the little house in the hood. Since it was such a nice day, we thought we would “bite the bullet" and dress up the old girl a little bit. It is only the first coat, be we LOVE it. My shoulder aches from the work and my head hurts form the fumes, but at least the porch is looking good. If anyone is bored and wants to finish the work, let me know. :)
Since it rained the entire weekend, and the work that I would normally LOVE to do…like…mow the yard…scrape paint…power wash the garage…weed the flowerbeds…etc…were all off limits, I decided it was time to finish the great picture sort.
For almost 2 days straight, I worked and toiled to finish sorting and preserving approximately 8000 photographs, old report cards of my parents, every valentine’s card my dad ever received, hundreds of negatives, and also a few keep sakes from my childhood.
I ALMOST finished…there is a big zip lock bag full of a bunch of “unknown” people, but that will have to wait until I talk to the brain trust (my parents).
Below are a few pictures documenting the process. I will never print these two pictures, because then I would have to find a place for them.
In a perfect world, Caleb’s bedtime routine would consist of the following three easy steps: 1. Daddy giving Caleb a bath 2. Mommy giving Caleb some light refreshments 3. Caleb drifting off to sleep.
On the evening of September 5th, Caleb deviated from this routine and added an additional acrobatic step between bath time and mommy time. We have documented this step in the video below for your enjoyment.
