Spring Break Project Extravaganza

Hey all,

I apologize for being out of touch – had a bit of drama around here.  First, my daughter woke up on Friday morning (2 AM) crying that her right chest area was hurting, and was breathing like she couldn’t get a full breath.  Long story short, we ended up at Children’s Hospital and she was diagnosed with pneumonia.  I’m feeling like the mom who totally missed the boat on this one, but the only symptom she had was a bit of a cough.  That’s IT.  No fever, nothing.  But, thankfully she’s on anti-biotics and on the mend.

Then my computer followed suit and got a virus.  So, my awesome IT guy at work is completely reloading it for me, but it left me with NO computer.  At least no computer that is MY computer.  For the whole weekend.  Eeek!

I’m off all next week for my kids’ spring break, and I have big plans.  So, this whole melodrama really threw me for a loop.  But, I’m getting back on track and am hoping to knock out A LOT of projects.  

I have finally taken down all of the wallpaper in my half bathroom, and have committed to a color!  I’m going with Bird’s Egg by Benjamin Moore.

I have even decided upon a stencil for this space, but I’m going to keep that a surprise.  In my excitement to throw paint on the wall, I missed some wallpaper paste and painted over it.  What. a. mess.  To quote my husband, “What happened in the bathroom?”  So, I’m resisting the urge to step away from this project and move on to something else.  I’m pressing forward!

Here are some pics of this color in action:

As I said before, I’m off all week, and have a project list as long as my arm.  Hoping to have lots to blog about when it’s all said and done.

Happy Sunday!

    Glad to hear your daughter is feeling better, Jenny! Good luck with your projects; that paint color is gorgeous! I wish I could take a couple of days {in addition to my weekends} to get into some projects. Allergy sinus headaches have knocked me for a loop this week and weekend and I got nothing accomplished.
