Scenes From The Weekend

14 drawers
21 cupboard doors
52 individual pieces of 8 ft. bead-board
and a WHOLE LOT of dust

 That's how we spent our weekend.
Things are a movin' and a groovin'!
I'm pretty sure I consumed more sawdust that actual food.

 I am incredibly thankful for my hard workin' hunk-o-rama husband

 and my angel of a mother-in-law Jean.
We sanded for hours and hours!

It looked like I had a head full of gray hair.

Oh the joys of making a house your home.

 The kitchen drawers are empty and piled high in Maggie's room.

 The appliances I'll be cooking with this week.

The girls think it's fun because 
we eat quick and easy bad for us food on paper plates.

My girls are rock stars.
They did such a great job entertaining themselves 
while we dustfully neglected them.

So it was a GOOD weekend.
We got a lot done.
But I'm feeling like I need a weekend to recover from my weekend.
And I feel how this guy looks

 Cabinets get primed today.
Hip hip hooray!

Hope you have a marvelous Monday!
