Have you been wondering where I’ve been? Have you even noticed that I haven’t posted for a couple weeks? It’s ok if you haven’t. I’m delusional about many things (like the period of time in Jr. high when I only wore stirrup pants and knock-off keds and thought I looked awesome), but I don’t think that hundreds of people are hanging on my every word. I’ve just been plain old busy with work and life and tearing apart our living room and trying to keep my child from hurting himself/everyone else on earth. I just haven’t had time to blog or really do too much crafting or even look at Pinterest [insert collective gasp]. This is the first time I have opened my laptop in 2 weeks.
Now this isn’t one of those posts where I go on about how I realize my life is full without blogging or I am quitting or blogging is so shallow and I am above it now. Not at all. I like blogging and I wish I had more time for it. I mean, my house has looked like this for a month since I went into a rage and ripped down our chair rail.
JK. I didn’t go into a rage. I just temporarily lost my mind and thought if I took down the chair rail I would have enough time/magically gain the manual labor skills to repair dry wall. Remember a couple paragraphs up when I mentioned I am slightly delusional? Proof. I am crazy. Anyway, since I have no shame and I don’t want to be fake about what my life looks like, here you go.
Oh yeah, take it in. Chair rail missing, exposed nail holes and blue stripe. Mismatched furniture because I am literally too lazy to even list anything on Craigslist. Toys, puzzle pieces, shoes. My new beautiful couch always covered by a ratty old blanket because I don’t like Sawyer to even touch it. (Note to self: look into plastic cover for couch.) Mail piles. No curtains. Just a mess.
After telling Anderson that this room is the reason for my gloomy mood and anxiety attacks (DRAMATIC), we have called in help for the wall situation. Hallelujah. As I write this a week after I took these pictures, our wall is fixed and I've painted and the anxiety attacks have stopped. I have to list a majority of the furniture on Craigslist and sort through what stuff is staying and going, then Anderson and I are going to start on the new wall unit we are building. Guess when I will have time to build a wall unit? Never, but remember I’m delusional so let me live the lie.
So if you feel like your house is a wreck, hey, here’s mine. And if you feel like you are stretched way too thin, I’m right there with you sister. And if you miss my posts (bless you), I do too. Stick around. I have stuff to share.
p.s. Google reader is going away and the world is over (so I’m told). I don’t even know what Bloglovin is so I guess I am going to work on that. I will look into it this weekend and then I will do the blogger thing and come back and tell you all to follow me on Bloglovin, facebook, twitter, Pinterest, flikr, email, etc. Just basically stalk me ok because I don’t want to lose you.
