It is so nice to have a surprise like this after all the weird stuff that has been happening lately. From my poor chicken to our orphaned squirrel to me being sick for almost a week straight...it gives me something to smile about :)
I am trying to rest and get better but my boys are making it hard for me to do so. It's like they know Mamma doesn't feel good. I discovered a chunk of random hair on my bathroom floor...yes, my youngest found some scissors and decided that he needed a hair cut. Thankfully I can make it look "blended" but goodness. The things these boys will do to keep me wired so I can't rest. I guess moms don't get sick days...should have read that part over more carefully before I signed up.
So what am I doing to get better? Lots of fluids, lots of medication and cough drops and finally, lots of movies. I finally gave in and let the TV babysit for a bit. My kiddos don't get to watch alot of TV because I think they should use their imagination and play...that's what I did as a kid. So, I don't feel so bad doing this so I can rest and get better.
I haven't forgotten about my children's studio stuff. In fact I have a funny story about that...funny now...I was irate then:
I went to the Antique mall to look for a chair. It's so frustrating to me that I can find the same chair down in GA that I would here but it would be 100 bucks less. All their chairs are like 165 dollars...and they aren't even in that good of shape. So, I ended up purchasing a 1940's vanity bench...someone had covered it in this cool orangy-red material and I couldn't resist. So excited, I got home and immediately set up some of my material and plopped the bench in front. I told the boys to take their shirts off and they were gonna be my guinea's again. Now, I don't have a backdrop stand yet, so I was using some paint buckets....
Do you see where this is going?
Moral of the story...Ali needs to buy a backdrop stand...I spent about an hour scooping up paint with a Pampered Chef Spatula...I was able to recover almost the full gallon, but it's a little dirty. I don't know know if I'm gonna still use it for my living room or not. I dunno...
Parker looks so pitiful doesn't he? Well, I laugh about it now. Ok...gotta get some sleep so I can get better. Take care!!! And Thanks again if you voted for my photo! Ya'll are AWESOME!!!
