We had a very busy, yet very productive weekend here. On Friday, we moved Mackenzie’s clothes into her new room, I finished washing her bedding and put that on and made a valance out of her bedskirt that she doesn’t need (she has a waterbed with a normal mattress in it). I hung her posters with Tayler’s help and just got the room ready. Mike had to fix her light switch but it is all done.
Mike set up Johnny’s bed and we were up LATE trying to figure out the best way to have both beds in the room. I went through the closet and set up Mason’s stuff in there as well as made room for Johnny. We moved Mason’s bed and the desk that will hold Johnny’s fish tank. I put some foam padding on the edge of Mason’s bed (it is a captains bed so is wood) so Johnny won’t hurt himself. I hung the posters in there and filled Mason’s drawers with his things. There is no room for a dresser but we don’t really need one. Mike put a ceiling fan up in there.
The kids were so excited to see their new rooms. Mason is, surprisingly, very excited about having Johnny as a roommate. I am glad. Mackenzie is happy to have her own room. I even got a hug from her out of it. 🙂
Today, I made some blackout curtains for the boys’ room. They are pretty expensive to buy so I saved us about $12 making them. They are bigger and look better than the ones we were looking to buy too… plus, I couldn’t find any that I didn’t have to alter from the store anyways. I also moved Johnny’s clothes into the new closet and moved his socks and jammies. I washed Joley’s diapers and put those away on the shelf and started washing her clothes that were sitting in my laundry room and then put those in the closet and drawers.
My house is a disaster and I had a meltdown last night about it. 🙁 I just can’t keep up with it all anymore and it just seems to be such a mess all the time. It isn’t even that bad, but just worse than I am used to. I am hoping to get the kids on board to do more around here to help me out. I need to clean my bedroom but they can help with other stuff.
I haven’t eaten yet today except for a bag of yogurt fruit snack things. It is after 10pm. I feel sick and I am sure that is why. I am not even sure what happened but I just didn’t eat. Mike is going right now to get me something though so I can eat before going to bed. I just wasn’t up for making anything this late… plus when I cook, I never want to eat by the time it is done.
Anyways, it was a short weekend but probably because it was so busy. We still have a few things to do upstairs in the boys’ room, like hang up the nets for their stuffed animals. Mackenzie’s fan needs to be looked at because the light won’t pull so you can’t run the fan without the light on. ugh I think Mike will look at that soon though or it might get cool enough this week to not have to worry about it. I am not moving anything else of Johnny’s until he is ready to go to his big bed and we just aren’t there yet.
Off to eat…
