Those were great suggestions for the Netflix queue!
In response to Melissa, the backpack is raspberry-colored corduroy.
We have also been in the midst of painting decisions.
To tell you the truth, the living room is putting the kitchen to shame, and we need to immediately address that situation.
There has been a certain amount of waffling as to the color scheme; Yellow? Green? Yellow with Green trim? (this one looked too much like the Packers, and you may know that we are a Vikings state) Green with Green trim? White with Yellow trim?
I guess I will have to wait to find out along with all of you, faithful readers...
Along with the painting, I made a decision the other night which may change our lives as we have known them.
I organized the tool bench.
For four years we have been living out of a pile of junk, tools, dirt, sawdust, bugs, spiderwebs- you get the idea.
Anyway, when I was at the Home Depot the other day, I saw that it would cost about $11.00 to make a real change and I made that investment.
I apologize for the lack of a before picture, but it was truly a sight that I didn't want to document.
If you look closely, you can see that yes, I did label the boxed power tools on the outside of their cases.
While I was at the Home Depot I also bagged some pegs for the kids' backpacks.
I have finished the lining for the Elder's and I cut out the Younger's.
He is very excited to have a space backpack.
Even though the end of Summer unofficially came on Labor Day, Minnesota is playing along.
The weather has been decidedly chilly compared to the last few weeks.
I have taken to wearing a sweatshirt.
I may even resort to socks soon.
Ah well, that means that Sweater Weather can't be far behind.
Good luck through all of your upcoming transitions,
