Oh! The dreaming, and magazine clipping and pinterest looking...it's all been fun.
Sadly, as the school year wound into full gear around here, the home improvement/decorating/organizing has slowed to a near halt. Sure there is the occassional weekend project that actually gets started AND completed. For the most part, however, Paul and I are back to the planning and saving mode.
Though not the most dramatic, it's a good stage to be found. A fun time to actually LIVE in this house without thinking something needs to be fixed immediately. Sure enough, you stop noticing that awkardly hung towel rack, or peeling kitchen paper border and just live your life!
In the meantime, the list changes (and invariably grows)!
And at the end of a very full day: the school room (above) IS picked up, the children ARE loved, cared for, and sweetly sleeping, the puppy WILL sleep in the kennel without trouble and the two homeowners crawling into bed...well, they ARE the most satisfied with their lives they have ever been. Praise be to God!
