Good Friday Morning!

It has been a week since I have last been here.  Lets just say the week has been interesting.  First off, my normally great marriage went awry with probably one of the bigger fights we have had in the 18 years we have been together.  Lets just say he thought it would be a good idea for my cellphone to take a dip in paint thinner!  He said "well I was mad and it was there.." Yeah, Bullshit!  Oh well all is on the mend and I have a new phone on the way tomorrow. 

Our anniversary is tomorrow and we are going to be really romantic and hang kitchen cabinets.  I have been waiting for a new kitchen since we bought this house 6 years ago,  and the day has come.  It has been a lot of work leading up to this as I got the ingenious idea that getting the cabinets you stain would be a good move.  My thought process is that we have hardwood floors throughout the upstairs except the kitchen which is tile.  We refinished them 3 summers ago so I know what stain I used so I could get red oak cabinets and stain them the same as the hardwoods and it would pull the whole house together.  BIG JOB!  I am almost finished with 1/2 of the cabinets.  I haven't brought home the rest as they wouldn't fit in my garage.  I am exhausted.  My poor 15 year old made the mistake and informed me that they learned how to stain in shop class this year.  That wasn't the smartest move on his part this week.  He has helped though. 

On the weightloss front, after a stall for what seemed like forever, I have lost 3 lbs this week!  I am not sure what is going on as I haven't changed anything!  I am not going to complain though as I really want to get to goal.  Only 7lbs to go!  I am truly believing that hormones control a lot of this and my body just said it was time to let go again. 

I need to be getting everyone up and ready for school.  Have a wonderful Friday everyone and here's to hoping that yours is sunny!

Good to hear from you Heather! Sorry about the tiff with the husband..I am ready for a new ohone myself. I wonder if I can some how get mine to make it into some paint thinner!

So when you are finished, come on over to NC and do mine! We are sitting on a brand new stove that needs to be installed..I have new hardward ready to go in and new countertops! But no time at all! Plus we are doing it all ourselves! Boo

Wow, that sounds like a project! Isn't it amazing how things like staining and painting can make your body so sore, too? Or maybe that's just me.

Congrats on the loss! The surprise ones are the best ones ;)

Only 7 lbs to goal!!! That's great! I got the bright idea few years back to pain my cabinets. I had no idea how long that was going to take. I don't envy you.

It feels so funny to read that you are at your 18th year mark and that I am not even started and yet we are the same age! Better get a wriggle on!
