Over the weekend, we found out quite unexpectedly that our digital camera was working again after replacing the batteries -- and yes, we've tried that before, but it didn't work then, but it suddenly worked, but I think it's still a little glitchy because it's starting not to work again.
Anyway, in the "quick take a bunch of pictures in a row and see how they turn out" phase of our testing, I snapped about 40 photos. I won't bore you to death with all of them, I promise. I'll only share enough to make you see that life around our house really is a circus.
One of the many many projects Hubby is working on is the playroom for the kids. When we bought the house, the basement was unfinished. Last year, he added an office for himself. After he finishes the kids' playroom, he'll work on the rest of the basement.
Here is a picture of the kids' current playroom in the basement. What kid wouldn't want to play here, eh?
This is a picture of the kids' future playroom. My favorite part of this playroom? The DOOR that we'll be able to SHUT and not look at the mess (see above picture).
This is one of the other current projects Hubby is working on, our cedar deck. The deck we used to have was made of a vinyl or plastic and it was so light gray it was white. This deck isn't done yet, but it will be completed with benches and stairs very soon.
One of the future (far in the future) projects we're working on is painting. Here is a picture of a collection of paint colors we have taped to the wall in the kitchen. So far, the color that wins with me is the middle "beige-ish" one. Hubby isn't really sold on any of the colors, though. I plan to go back to Home Depot for more colors soon. I like watching him get all worked up when I tell him I want to paint the kitchen red.
Do you ever wonder where I post all these thrilling blog entries from? Huh? Do ya? (No... not from work!) Well, I'm gonna tell ya. From right here. (Look at the picture) See? My desk away from work. Ta-da!
As I sorted through all the pictures I had taken with the "maybe it's broken, maybe it's not" digital camera, I think I found the picture that may have broken it again. Look if you must, but not for very long. Mothers, shield your child's eyes. It's me flashing you.
