Stir Crazy Summer!

Help!

Haha. No, it's fine. Really. We're surviving over here, thanks to grandparents and playgrounds. But I've been stuck at home for the last two days while our van gets one last check up before the move, and let's just say...it makes for some long days. We really wanted to get our water slide out yesterday and have a little splashing fun. So I took my pregnant self outside and lugged the thing out of the storage bin, set it up in the grass, and then we realized the blower that inflates the contraption is not working. Womp womp...no water slide for us.

My kids have been entertaining themselves in interesting ways. If you are on Facebook, then you may have seen Gracie's beautiful carrot and ketchup artwork.


After I discovered the actual mess on the computer desk where she made her creation, I literally turned around and found her giving Apple Jack a mohawk and de-tailing. She saw it on youtube.


It was Evelyn's. Ay yi yi. Poor little Apple Jack!

Needless to say, I can't wait to have the van back so we can find some...less?...creative outlets. :)

Eric was at the new house late last night while the cable guy was there hooking things up. We weren't going to get any kind of cable or satellite at all, but when we saw the price for internet alone vs. tv and internet it was kind of dumb not to, haha. But once again, that meant an even longer day for me and the kiddos as we were just stuck here without him. The good news is we have a few mid-week progress pictures!

The shower is DONE. Hallelujah! 



Complete with the RIGHT shower door.


So there's one thing to check off of the list!

The tub is also coming along...


Just waiting on some more accent tile, which I believe is being picked up this evening. Even the tub itself looks better when not surrounded by the carpet that was once here. And everyone agrees it was a good decision to take the step out.

Mario has started working on painting the doors.


Mario says he can be done with everything by next Tuesday. 
I don't believe it.
I mean, I believe him, because he's been superman so far...but...I don't believe it! He still has the entire kitchen to redo! If he pulls this one off I'm nominating him for contractor of the year.

It's amazing to me how much the little things make a big difference. Like having the inside of all of the closets painted. It was one of those "Do we really care about this?" sort of decisions, and at the end of the day, yes. Yes, we care. Because now everything looks so much cleaner...didn't realize how scuffed and dirty those walls were until they were repainted! 

Now...let's see how long it takes our crazy family to move in and mess everything up! :D 

Well, at least everything will look nice for a day or two, haha. 

We're about to enter the craziest couple of weeks of our summer..let's do this thing!
