Because Random Feels Good Today

* I may well be just a few short days away from being done painting. That day cannot get here soon enough.

* This has been one of those gruesome weeks: My brother broke his leg (and is in a wheelchair because he cannot seem to figure out how to work crutches), my sister had all four wisdom teeth yanked today, and my mother has warned me that I canNOT have any drama this week, because she just CAN’T take anymore of it. On top of the sibling ailments, my builder messed up on a project (You know that adage: “Measure twice, cut once”? Yeah. He didn’t. He measured once. Guess who had to tear out the shelving and rebuild. Did you guess the builder? If so, ding ding ding!).

* I am so so glad that we didn’t decide to build a WHOLE HOUSE from the ground up. I am so overwhelmed with decision making, it’s not even funny. I had to pick a design for the tilework on the deck of the tub, as well as the back splash. Now I need to pick tile. Tile that won’t put me in the poor house. My to do list grows exponentially each day, and it doesn’t seem that I’m able to cross anything OFF the list.

* The Princess came home with a Barbie from preschool that a friend “gave” her. Oy. Will have to be sure to send that back. (WHY do kids give their stuff away willy-nilly?).

* We have to volunteer at Stepson’s school carnival tonight. I’m sure it will be fun, but man, does that school love their fundraisers. They are always doing something. It could either be a fun time, or I’ll wish I could rewind to the day I volunteered and take it back!

* It’s been over a week since I’ve gotten to sleep past 6 a.m. I’m really not happy about that development.

*Pumpkin is getting teeth. Molars, it looks like. I didn’t say I had no idea why I wasn’t sleeping. Goldarn teeth.

* My ability to compose sentences is greatly compromised this week due to the massive amount of information concerning my house floating in my head. I feel like a space cadet much of the time. Better luck next week, I guess.

    I am so glad the light is twinkling at the end of your construction tunnel! Have I mentioned how jealous I am of the playroom?! Paint me green…but I cannot say I am jealous of the chaos it takes to get there.

    Have you ever given your girls Hyland’s Homeopathic Teething Tablets? I’d never heard of them until B.B. was about 6 months old. Husband’s cousin gave me 2 (B.B. was cutting teeth and horribly cranky at a family gathering), and within 10 minutes he was a new kid. Love-Love-Love these things.

    Here’s a link to those tablets.

    Hope all is well in your world soon!
