It's 12:23 (a.m.) and the kids and I have had a MAJOR WORK DAY, which didn't even begin till 3:20 when they got home from school.
Since then we have:
--Gone to Lowes twice to buy (way too expensive) flagstone pavers and paint
--Gone to Walmart to see if pavers were cheaper there (they didn't have any)
--Began the tedious process of removing dirt and replacing with pavers
--Began planting dwarf mondo grass in between pavers (it looks SO good!)
--Painted a TV cabinet that we found awaiting garbage pickup across the street
--Put the first coat of paint on the recently-flooded-but-now-dry basement floor
--painted two wooden chairs (previously brown wood-colored, now white)
--Painted a free-standing pantry in my kitchen a gorgeous garnet color
--Tried to (unsuccessfully) hand-feed our kittens, since the mother has a bad case of nipple infection and won't let them anywhere near her (!)
--Celebrated the above by getting pizza from Papa John's and watching the newer version of Shakespeare's As You Like It
Caveat (aka excuse) - This was not posted last night because my computer hibernated on me right as I was ready to post. Then I hibernated out of frustration and weariness.
This morning I am still having computer problems and have had to start this over twice.
And in the back of my mind I'm thinking.....ALL this for a bowl of grits? Just calll me Esau.
