crash & burn

Well, I guess it was to be expected... I have officially crashed & burned and had a bit of a breakdown yesterday to prove it. Doing trim is for the birds. Especially, when you're going from dark natural wood to white. I've gotten so far into the project, but I LITERALLY can't think about doing another ounce of it... trim that is. So, I've called in a painter to quote to finish my project! ;-) I feel so ashamed, b/c I was so proud of what I was accomplishing and what we were saving in my doing it, but I've overdone it... physically & mentally. Luckily, my husband is one of the best and is holding my hand in the process without uttering a word of 'failure' or 'cost' or 'I told you so'.... He sat & listened & that's all I needed.

Hopefully, once the trim is done, I can get on with it and start painting the walls. No pressure, one by one and if nothing else gets done before Amelia gets here, then so be it. (I keep telling myself that, but any of you that know me, know that it's going to be a hard feat!;-))

On the bright side, it's looking AWESOME! I'm so excited to see what the final outcome is going to be. It's fun personalizing your home. exhausting, but fun!

In other news. I cut Cyd's bangs! AHHH! Next time, I'm going to let my sister who's a beautician do them! Way shorter than I was hoping, but they'll grow out, right!? ;-) I'll post a picture later. I don't have my camera down here to do it. Sorry!

Well, I hope you had a great Monday and enjoy the rest of the week!

Much Love!

It's Matt...I can't remember my login. We've already made some drastic changes to the house. I'm excited to see what it looks like when it's "done" even though it never will be. Lots of memories to be had!
