I added a Motivation thread to the September Chat on the Wisconsin SparkPeople and you know what? It helped just to write them out. I never realized how much there was to use for motivation until I listed them.

We're supposed to take the cover off the pool, add chemicals, and cover it up again...funny, because we've been gone so much we didn't have the chance to use it. I miss that, I used to water walk in there, and it was fantastic, especially on the hot days. Of course this year had a low of hot days, we didn't open it..hopefully next year.

Anyway, the walnuts were falling from the trees when I walked past them, I'm always hoping I don't get hit on the head by one of them. that may hurt.

It's a beautiful day, today, I hope you all are able to get out there and enjoy it. Remember, always smile and think positive, WE can do this! emoticon

Ooops...brain missed a couple days..

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Been so busy lately, I'd forgotten to write my blog in here, so now it's catch-up time. Saturday was my sister's wedding reception, we were over there decorating, dancing, all the fun things. She and her husband, Todd, were married in Las Vegas (she surprised him with a trip out there and then got married. After 28 years of being together and 2 kids, she thought it was about time.) with their 2 kids and their gf's, and a woman my sister works with (who volunteered herself to be the maid of honor).

Sara and Todd's "dance":

Decorated room (a banner I'd made for them):

Head table (the pics are the wedding pictures enlarged, taken in Vegas):

Flowers I had to make on the spur of the moment (first time working with real flowers):

Then Sunday we were back over to our daughter's house helping her paint some more. The rooms are nearly done; downstairs needed a second coat on the hall yet, and 2 upstairs bedrooms needed the darker end walls done, otherwise that's it. I'm not sure about the bathroom upstairs, if they were doing that or not. They have to replace the sink and bathtub up there, so I'm thinking they just primed that one.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and an even better today.

Painting, again

Friday, September 20, 2013

Got the master bedroom done, have the kitchen and front bedroom first coated, have the living room done, have the entryway done, so we're doing very well, I think. The front bedroom and kitchen just need a second coat, then they'll be doing the hallway and the downstairs will be done. We have 3 or 4 rooms upstairs to do, and the hallway there, so hopefully it'll go quickly, the rooms upstairs are smaller than the ones downstairs. Then it's moving time. Brande figured we could paint while my husband (her dad) and Dan's Dad (both named Rick) move furniture, along with Dan. I think it looks gorgeous, so far.

So I'm going to be away quite a bit, have a wedding reception tomorrow night (my sisters), and the moving/painting to finish. Have a great weekend.

Another day of Painting

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Back off to painting yet another room, this time the kitchen/entryway. Yesterday we did the living room and it looks great, plus we puttied every hole there room had 45 holes to putty. I swear the woman who lived there put something up everywhere, it's insane.

Anyway, have a great day, one of these days I'll get back to writing longer posts. emoticon


This time painting

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

I'll be heading back over to our daughter and her boyfriend's house to finish priming and begin painting. I'm hoping we get it done today, because Thursday it's supposed to get hot out, again (before heading waaaaaayyyy low, weird weather).

Anyway, yesterday must have been some kind of workout, my body is sore. *L* I hope you all have a great day, and hopefully one of these upcoming months I'll be able to post more, everywhere. emoticon
