Home improvement with kids..

I think we've finally got this figured out .. Got a few little kids and need your house painted? Hire someone else to paint it! Tomorrow while I am wrestling 3 kids at the dentist - Marco the paint master will be transforming our living room and kitchen - very affordable I might add (especially when compared to the costs associated with the impact of major dyi projects on my mental and emotional health) - I did spend a big chunk of time today sewing new curtains for our windows up above the stairs to the basement so the painter (who claims he was "born on a ladder") can hang them for me. We also moved an amazing amount of stuff away from the walls and got down all the pictures (and a lot of dust .. A LOT - as a side note my allergy medicine is working wonders this year - its amazing how well it works when you take it)

Oh and for the record, the last thing I baked in my horrific red kitchen (sorry, I've been trying to like it for the past 4 years, it has only gotten worse) was some very healthy but not so tasty gluten and dairy free multi grain cookies - they were a big hit with Annie but I am going to have to work on them more before I post a recipe - why ever I thought it was a good idea to make up a recipe for my first attempt at gfdf cookies .. I have no idea.

  1. I wish I had your kitchen. I know to you it's to small, but it seems to have twice the storage mine does. Sigh! Someday. Excited to see how it turns out. Pictures are so easy to forget to dust aren't they. Sometimes I look up at them and realize they need a good dusting and then I think, "I wonder if any of my guests have seen these and been grossed out?" LOL.
