There is a TV in my bedroom, and I'm sick of it.

Since the big 'renovation' the TV has been nicely placed in our bedroom.  No big deal...in general, we don't watch much TV, so having it temporarily in our bedroom seemed like a good idea until;

*playoff games
*Superbowl (bad idea to watch the Superbowl in a tiny bedroom with a bunch of kids and food

Yes, I said it He-Man, the 80's cartoon.  We don't have cable, but there is some station out there that has decided He-Man is a good thing to air at night when people are tying to go to bed.  Josh is easily sucked in because the show must bring to life childhood memories...I don't know.  Whatever it is, "BY THE POWER OF GREYSKULL, I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL I HAVE A NORMAL LIVING ROOM AGAIN!"

At any rate, things are moving along slow but sure.  The kitchen is mostly painted.  It is red, which is shocking considering Josh pretty much only likes beige, but it looks good.  He is at the store buying 5 pantry style cabinets (almost like lockers) to install in the dining room for each of the kids belongings.  (books, coats, sports equipment, etc...I'll post pics when they are done)

Still waiting...waiting...waiting...for my couches to arrive.  They say I should have them by Valentines day.  We shall see. 

Josh has been busy with work, so I am very blessed that he has any energy to do work on the house at all.  I have been busy with the kids.  Isaac is in basketball this year, he's doing very well and loves the game.  Abigail is in cheer leading & is doing great, while Elijah has been training to run a 5k in May...oh wait.  Josh is beckoning me to help him do some HE-MAN work.  I take it he has just returned from buying the storage cabinets... be back in a minute.

Okay, it's been lots of minutes, but I'm back. 

The cabinets are in resting in my overcrowded dining room right now.  I'm looking forward to having it back.  It has become the resting place for all things. 

And because I'm running short on time, I'll leave you with a few pictures, just because...

These are my very red walls and sink, and new counter tops.  Still need another coat of paint & some other stuff.

*okay, now it is Tuesday, and I still have not completed this.  I think I started it on Saturday or Sunday, but I can't be sure.

We got all of the pantry cabinets in the dining room.  They will serve as "lockers" for the kids.  They look great. 

The kitchen walls are complete, dry, etc...and the microwave is out of the dining room. Thank goodness.

My couches are still NOT HERE.  Where shall we sit?

The TV is still in my bedroom.

I have hung a few pictures, the house is looking more normal.

(obviously taken before Josh painted the walls)
Tomorrow will mark 15 years of Josh and I being together as a couple.  We started dating on Feb. 15th 1997...time flies!  He's the love of my life.

  1. That HeMan thing is funny. I just read a HeMan book to one of the kids the other day, it must've been Joe's when he was kid.

    I hope you got your couches.
