still here (still during)
July 12th, 2011
I'm here. I haven't fallen off the earth, I've just been sucked into summer with three little kids and all it's sweaty, whiny, wet and happy craziness. I keep waiting for things to slow down a little so I can get some projects crossed off the list, but then yesterday I realized the crazy is not going to let up until summer's done.
So I'm going to try to take that minute here and there my kids give me and to get something accomplished. Like their room. It's still far from done and it's starting to wear on me. The overhead projector came out yesterday and I started to draw a map of our neighborhood on the big board. Nothing like a big junior high flash back in the middle of the day. If you are too young to remember the drone of the fan and the slightly burny smell of the overhead projector well then you are just too young aren't you.
If you've got a keen eye then you spotted the bumper I made in the first picture. And here is the bunting bumper (rubber baby bunting bumpers!) in all it's glory. Take a long look, because I will never be making one of these suckers again. You know when you are dreading doing a project and then you start and think, hey, this isn't so bad, kind of fun even? Well this wasn't like that at all--it sucked the whole way through. But thankfully done and off the list.
Painting the dresser is next. Any thoughts?
Here are the first few posts about the room if you need a refresher:
