As in Work. In. Progress.
I think my entire life is a WIP.
My home is a WIP.
My kids are a WIP.
My health is a WIP. (Grrr! Arg! Sonofagun!)
I like to say WIP.
I also have no life.
Remember when I showed you my family room? Living room? What the heck is it really called anyway?
You probably don't. Because I have about 589 other things that always seem to come before this old hobby of mine.
(I kinda miss it. *sigh*)
Well I'm just posting for my own records.
So thanks for coming out if you even still know my name.
I'm sort of the invisible 'Visible Voice' lately...
Okay back to our regular scheduled programming!
Here's where we left off in my family room.
Oh wow...seeing the snow outside the windows in those photos almost made me throw up a bit in my mouth.
Yeah I hate winter.
Moving on... So this is what was going on back in what was the longest winter of my entire life. It was 8 months long in case you haven't heard me complain about that for a minute.
I was hoping to paint up a dresser of mine and plop it here...
So you know...I went ahead and did that.
I missed three naps.
As in my own naps.
That part wasn't pretty.
But the dresser is!
I still have yet to find the perfect handles for it.
But this dresser is going wherever I go for the rest of forever.
My Mama (and Step-dad) bought it for me.
I remember heading to the Sears bargain basement.
I remember we didn't have a lot of money.
I remember knowing it was a sacrifice.
I remember knowing that they wanted to get me something that they knew I needed but wanted to get me something of quality.
It was the only piece of furniture that was purchased for me and I was the only owner.
I don't think any of us even had that. Well maybe.
I was the youngest so I don't remember what icky boys got. That was uber boring.
That dresser goes wherever I go.
The yellow is so bright and cheery!
And my Mama gave it to me. :)
Oh and then I got a little shop happy at IKEA one day.
You know...'love your home' right?!
And now actually it's changed around again but I don't have an updated photo for you.
I'd take one right now but my kids have been in here for a mili-second so I can't pretend like its always 'picture perfect magazine worthy' if I showed you how my real life is right now.
Lego and cracker crumbs anyone?
I'll trick you with that lie another day.
On the random...
*I'm so bloody glad its summer finally! I won't tell you that I'm already dreading next winter.
*Have I mentioned in the last 82 blog posts that I miss blogging. Miss writing. Miss doing something with the photos I take. Yet hate social media half the time. I need to be medicated. ;)
*My health is pissing me off. I said piss. That's a legit swear for me.
*We caved and went against all safety reason and bought my boys a trampoline. I love to zip that thing up and lock that two year old devil in there. Its like a baby-sitter. "I'm off to the store. Don't fight!"
*I eat oatmeal like everyday. Don't act like you didn't want to know that.
*I have an inner ninja.
*I frequently sing Sweet Brown's "Ain't nobody got time for that!" auto tune in my head. And maybe out loud. And yes I sound a wee CRAY CRAY!
*My kids are having a sword fight...like right now. It's getting bad...uh....gotta go!
