***NOTE: This post was written and ready to go Monday morning.  It is being posted a day late due to extra unforeseen chaos in our household yesterday morning.  I will let you in on that story tonight.

———————————————————————-

As you know, my husband has been working on new twin beds for our boys.

Of course, in my world, when one project gets started, it just leads to another and another and another. With the new beds, I decided that we really needed to paint the room as well, which called for repair of the wainscoting, which called for changing out the light switch and outlets, and which now calls for new bedding and decor. It’s a never ending cycle.

But it’s okay, that is my happy place…the world of DIY. I can’t think of a better way to spend my time.

And since I spent nearly my entire weekend painting, I don’t have much for you today. Except a peek into our lives.  This is what happens when a carpenter and painting fanatic collide. (You should see the list of Pinterest projects I have lined up for my husband.)

Saturday, after a t-ball game and playing at the park, we got to work.

We finished painting around 2 in the morning.

Maybe it will trick the boys into thinking they are sleeping with us, and they will stay in their own beds all night long. One can hope.)

 

 

 

 

 

Here is where we stand now.

Hopefully, this week we can get the bedroom back in order and begin a new (more successful) sleeping routine.

Our first SodieDooDotch Challenge is coming on Thursday! Be sure to check back then!
