Larry's ongoing project to totally gut our house is proceeding apace. He actually waved the white flag and allowed me to pay the handyman to paint the girls' new walls, a job that Larry up until now had always insisted on doing himself. We made our usual mistake and chose a color that is so blindingly bright that I doubt anyone will be able to sleep in there. Glidden's Thai Teal, for those of you who want to know. It looks so darn innocent on that paint card. I'm telling you, it GLOWS, as though it were a radioactive substance.
|Is it bright in here, or is it me?|
Like I said, hamster-wheel busy. Let's not even talk about the 3 trips I made to Home Depot looking for closet organizers. I'm not proud of it, you know. Not proud at all.
|These? Are very complicated.|
In the middle of all this, the seasons are turning, which means children keep coming at me from all directions claiming that their clothes don't fit. I had both girls try on ALL their jeans today and we conducted lengthy discussions over fit, style, and color. This took a very long time. Then we went to Target and had Rachel try on ALL THE SIZES of jeans to determine what size we need to look for at the thrift store (where there are no dressing rooms). We did buy one pair to tide her over, so I don't feel guilty about that.
Before I did that, though, I had to run to the post office to mail back a very late standardized test before I was thrown into jail. AND I had to drive David to community college, because Larry had a work thing going on. AND I went to Home Depot AGAIN to pick something up for our handyman.
Whack-a-Mole busy, people. It's my life.
