What’s Up?

Monday ~ We had painters come and paint the walls, trim and doors up the stair well and down the hallway upstairs in the current house.  In the ten and a half years we have lived here I have never, that I can recall, ever taken a photo in the hall upstairs because I hated that area of the house sooooo much.  The reason I never did anything up there is because I’m afraid of heights and there was no way I was climbing up a ladder to paint that wall above the stairs.  And since I wasn’t about to do that, I never painted because to paint one part of that area and not another…well, I just never did.  So, the trim and doors were always this ugly cheap-o wood.  Not even nice oak.  If you think oak is nice. Which I don’t.  But since Monday, I LOVE walking up the stairs and everything looks for fresh and clean and crisp and new.  I love it.  I keep thinking I should hang something on the walls.  But I’ll just have to take it down soon to move.  So…no…nothing.  Thanks to Jason from http://www.heritage-custompainting.com for the awesome job!

Monday was also Labor Day so the kiddos were out of school for the day.  Little Man spent the previous night with Grandma and Grandpa in the Ville and Lovely Daughter had a friend over.  We just hung out while the painters worked.  My mom came over to help me pack up the craft room. 

Tuesday ~ School was delayed because of fog.  It was SUPER foggy.  Like, foggy enough that school ended up being cancelled.  CANCELLED because of FOG.  Really.  I’m not making this stuff up.  So, it was just another chillax day.  It was good because both of the kiddos were feeling a bit under the weather with colds, so it was nice to just watch movies and lay around.  I had class in the evening and Lovely Daughter had practice.  And we heard from the people at Med One…Lovely Daughter has an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to look at her shoulder…which is another story for another day 🙂

Wednesday ~ the kids were finally back to school.  Both were feeling a bit better.  I worked at church.  My online class began that day.  I’m really struggling with the whole online class. I just don’t really get how it’s supposed to work.  I just do not feel like I’m getting anything out of it.  I’m definitely a lecture and discussion in person type of learner.

Thursday ~ I worked again.  I’m also in charge of the marching band/color guard locker decorations this year.  Basically, I have to come up with and make locker decorations for every competition.  Each of the competitions are on Saturdays from now until the first one in November {hopefully}.  The Thursday before, I will go to practice with Lovely Daughter and decorate the lockers during practice.  Like 10 other moms signed up to help but no one showed up this past Thursday.  So the Little Man and I did it all.  It wasn’t so bad.  We got them all done in like 30 minutes.  I had the decorations made before we got there so we just had to get the locker list from the band director and tape them on each locker.

Friday ~ I was miserable all day with a migraine.  I slept til about 11am and then just felt sick the whole rest of the day.  Lovely Daughter stayed after school since last night was homecoming.  Little Man came home from school and played quietly so I could continue resting with my migraine.  It ended up storming, like thunder and lightening, so the game was cancelled. 

Saturday {today} ~ This afternoon is our first of many marching band competitions.  It’s just an invitational today, but these are great practice for the official ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) competitions coming up.  The parents feed the kids a home cooked meal after each competition so they don’t have to eat so much concession stand food.  I went this morning early to Rural King and bought 3 of those big boxes of tortilla chips for the taco salad/nachos they’re having tonight.  The Hubby is driving his truck with one of the band trailers and going with the band and guard.  Little Man and I are going in a little bit.  They perform at 5:25pm.

So that’s my week.  What’s up with you this week?
