Still Painting

If you are wondering why I'm not blogging much (not that anyone out there is), we are still working on the room redo for Katie, and we are about 3 weeks or so from moving two teenage boys out of rooms they've occupied since 2000, and down to new rooms in the basement. Lily will move into Andrew's old room. Everyone is getting a total cleanout and a new coat of paint. THIS IS NOT AN EASY THING. Katie wants, desperately, to keep EVERYTHING. You can't GET her to throw a thing away...not a note, not a sticker...nothing. Andrew WANTS to throw EVERYTHING away...yearbooks, artwork, photos... His idea of cleaning his closet out is to put it all in the trash. Zachary, so far, has just "taken to the hills" and won't deal with it. So I am prying things out of Katie's clutches, sifting through Andrew's trash for things I paid a lot of money for, and I can't find Zach anywhere. This has been my week. Plus laundry. Plus Bible Study. Plus Football and basketball and another broken dishwasher and light fixtures and rugs. So maybe someday, I'll get back to blogging, but for now...not so much.

I'm out here...and it sounds like you are super busy. You never look that way when I see you in person! :)

I love this peek into Lindquist life. Wish I were there to paint with you!
