Well, I'm finally crossing date night off my list. I wish I could say that it was more exciting than it actually was... but...
Andy had his very first sleep over at his Uncle Jeff & Aunt Jaime's house! Thankfully, he was very well behaved, slept through the night and didn't give his Aunt Jaime any trouble (because we're really hoping that he's invited back for another sleep over!) So, this sleep over and thus, date night, happened more out of convenience than anything else. Matt had to be at work super early and I had a very early appointment in the morning, so Jaime was going to have to be over at our house at 7:45 a.m. to watch the little guy. We decided it would just be easier for Andy to stay over! You would think we would have been super excited about this... but...
I had been painting for two days straight. I was tired. (still am) I was sore. (still am) AND everything is blooming in the South! My allergies are just RIDICULOUS this year!!! I have not been able to breath through my nose for 2 straight days now, no matter what I try. So, anyway, we put forth our best effort. We tried a little Italian restaurant we had never been to. It was so so. I don't think we'll go back. As Matt said, "for what we paid, I wanted it to be a little more authentic tasting." I agreed. Although, I probably would have settled for just being able to taste anything, really. So we came home, and went to bed, and got up super early, and that was that!
It was really nice to have a dinner out just the two of us though. I'm very grateful and thankful for that!
Okay, so, the painting. T. E. D. I. O. U. S!!! I probably underestimated how big our bedroom is, until I started painting it! There is also this little hallway that leads to our bedroom that I had to paint as well. Plus, I decided to paint it the color "Milk Chocolate"... so it's definitely going to take two coats. I have done two coats of all the edging and still need to roller on the second coat on the walls. I have already gone through a gallon and three quarters! I went out to Lowe's today and bought a 3rd gallon thinking I would paint tonight... TOTALLY forgot that there is no light in there, so I will be cleaning tonight and painting tomorrow during nap time. Of course I'm not complaining that our bedroom is bigger than anything we've ever had before, but I am tired. I have a good friend who just finished sanding faux paneling in her family room, putting on two coats of primer and two coats of paint. She's going to read this and think tedious??!!! Let me tell you about TEDIOUS!!! And she's right. She wins. But I'm still really tired!
I love the color though!!! AND... I got the blinds up on the front facing two windows. Still have 4 more blinds to buy (not this month!) ... sigh... but it's coming together!
I'm just having one of those weeks. And it's only Monday. I feel like I have a ton of stuff to do. I'm super behind on cleaning and laundry. I really need to wipe every single surface of my house down to get rid of the pollen. I'm hosting Stitch n' Bitch tomorrow night and still don't know what I'm making for dinner. But mostly, all I want to do is crawl into my bed and go to sleep. I actually might have done that after I finished this post, but all of our bedding is in the wash and we only have one set of sheets for our bed. THAT needs to go on April's list. Buy second set of king size sheets!
