Dustin stayed home with the girls while I did some shopping today. That is a rare treat. Usually I am dragging two reluctant girls who are trying to escape me at every turn. Needless to say I never get to brouse and I usually only end up with half of what i came for. Plus I am thoroughly frustrated and determined to never shop with my two little angels turned monsters again. Today that was not the case.
A quick stop at Michales turned up a treasure of fall decorations that were 70% off. I found this wreath and a little candle one, as well. Something that has been on my wish list as my old one is faded and cracking.
My silly and consuming health is so much better than last week as is evidenced by the fact that my bathroom not only got cleaned last night, (and let me tell you it was gross!) but I shopped, cleaned, AND decorated a little today. It is SO nice to feel like my home is coming together again. I keep saying I will put pictures up, but I haven't painted my door yet, and it really does look terrible. Priming has pretty much been ruled out as the paint that I already put on seems to be sticking just fine. That might be a bad move, but at this point all I really care about is that it is finished. :-) Sad, but all too true.
When Karis saw my new purchases she declared the jewel like beads beautiful and told me, "Mommy, I love you, you are the best decorationist." You know, I had no idea the approval of a four year old would mean so much to me, but it made my day. It is fun to be able and share these things with her. We seem to be entering a new phase in our lives.
