This has been the past seven days for me:
Or each other.
I am not quite sure yet.
I do know that as I type this, I can hear my youngest coughing in her sleep from the monitor.
And that I have to wake up my oldest in a half hour to give her eye drops for the second batch of pink eye she has had in two weeks.
But first, I have to give myself eye drops.
Because I have pink eye for the first time ever in my 42 years.
My oldest has missed three days of school so far and we aren’t even in October yet.
And for a neat freak like me, this is a nightmare.
Maybe it is happening to me because I am too clean.
Sorry for the rant.
It has been a long week here and I am taking you down with me.By the way, the below post was created way before all of the above.
I have had no time to do anything other than wipe noses and eyes since September 21st.
Maybe you remember it?
It was so easy to create.
You can read the tutorial here.
One day I noticed it just hanging there all sad like.
A reminder of what we had done this summer with almost all of the boxes checked off.
We never did get to camp out in a tent in the backyard.
But everything else we did do and it was a fun reminder of what a cool summer we had around here.
I can reuse this for every single season which I totally didn’t even think about when I created it.
I guess I was so happy that summer was finally here that I totally didn’t even think about the possibilities!
I was actually on the phone with Rebecca when I came up with the fall checklist idea.
I was on my way out the door to run errands when she called and I decided to sit down and chat.
Had I just run my errands, I might not have thought of this idea.
Sometimes it’s good to slow and down and take the phone call, you know?
First I had to erase the summer to-do’s.
I just used Windex.
Rebecca asked me if that is the correct way to remove this type of chalk and I honestly don’t know.
That is what I had on hand and that is what I used.
I am sure it is the worst thing possible to use.
Because that is how I roll.
Here it is all done!
I think I love it!
Well before you start a “save the kitchen paint color” campaign, I already have a color picked out.
UPDATE- I chose the Revere Pewter and Upbeat Green as an accent. Click here to see the new colors!
