Lisa's Logbook - April 10

Current Mood: Mellow
Outside: 81 degrees??? Breezy and sunny! Crocuses!
Wearing: Black yoga pants, blue tee, bare feet
Tunes: Just Wives and Daughters
Kids Are: 2 are painting their bedrooms, 2 are chatting in the living room.
Hubby Is: Cleaning up the yard.
Made Me Laugh:  Sitting with my good friend
Made Me Sad: Bob's aunt passed away. Also seeing Suzy's tonsils was pretty sad.
Made Me Drool:  walking down the Easter candy aisle - so many kinds of JELLYBEANS! lol
Blessings: Walking into the urgent care with Suzy and there being NO OTHER PATIENTS there. How often does THAT happen? No waiting!
Reading: Just finished Wives and Daughters for book club and Cinderella Ate My Daughter. Started listening to Voyager by Diana Gabaldon and reading a book about a waitress' life experiences.
Watching: Psych and Life on Mars
Considering: Going to a movie. Anyone want to see Source Code or Soul Surfer?
Working On: soccer registration fliers, also the bedroom rearranging project

Lessons: Worked on David's transcript with a cool transcript generator my friend Maryann told me about:

Agenda: Working 4 hours M-F, karate, soccer practices and games, book club, homeschool rollerskating
Pic: First pic is Em and Suzy's room - half spring green and half lilac.

Second pic is David's end of the boys' room - partially painted regal purple. He even painted the ceiling. LOL And the trim is going to be onyx black.

Third pic shows James' end of the boys' room. His is light blue on top (sky) and dark blue on bottom (waves) and he is painting waves on the walls. He wants shark decals and fishes too. Ignore the huge messy pile in the middle that no one even covered with a sheet while painting. LOL He did his ceiling too, I believe, and the trim will likely be white.

I've been meaning to tell you that I love the idea of the half and half colors on the rooms. Riley and Reece share a room and I promised them (meaning Riley) they could do new colors next year. But they can't agree on a color. Maybe this would be an option. Besides there are really only 2 walls that get paint because of the big window on one wall and the closet on the other. It might work if I can get my brain to accept a multicolored room! LOL
