I'm on day 3 of a 4 day weekend. It's been divine. I've done some relaxing but am also tackling some daunting projects that have been hovering over me. Case in point:

Cole's room.

I wish I could play some really dreadful and haunting music right now to make this moment more theatrical. What IS it about boys and the mess they create? We moved Cole to the huge downstairs bedroom early this summer simply to remove his mess from the upstairs...haha. Now, it seems as though it just spreads out of his room into the family room, up the stairs, and back up into the dining room. Long story short, I made huge progress. Cleaned out the closet, got rid of a ton of outgrown clothes, set up his new bedframe, bought new bedding, and got him settled back in. We've still got some cosmetic work to do, as we tore out the moulding and closet doors when we remodeled/recarpeted. Cole still wants to paint it a "cool" color. All in good time. I've got some big painting projects on deck for winter. (kitchen, living room ceiling, Cole's room) While I was at it I cleaned out our family room, and still managed to find time to sit down with my hubby and watch "Bridesmaids". (Note: HILARIOUS, but certainly an "after the kids go to bed" flick).

Today I'm tackling the storage room. If you don't hear from me, send help.
