My painting duties are almost complete. Kitchen, computer room, bedroom, dining room ceiling all done. I know I'll have to touch some up at another time. Our kitchen is now a shade of green: Olive Fringes. I'm sure it will really look sharp come Monday when our cabinets start getting installed.
Onto Mother's Day~Today I tried starting my lawnmower with little success. I've had problems with it in the past and decided it was time to break down and by a new one. Thus, the first Mother's Day present: Lawnmower. After I brought it home, she reminded me that it was exactly 8 years ago on Mother's Day that I had purchased our first lawnmower. Guess it's just a good Mother's Day gift. After lunch, my wife decided to go shopping. This is something she normally does not do, but she had received a gift card from Kohl's that was only good through Tuesday. What did she buy? Nothing for herself, instead a new coffee maker thinking that I would probably be buying one anyway since every time I go to pour coffee, I spill half of the coffee all over the table. My last gift for Mother's Day will be to go upstairs and exercise and leave my wife in peace to read a book. 7:30pm and all the kids are already asleep.
Today's challenges: Staying out of the snacks. I know I'm not hungry, but I am exhausted from all the painting I've done the last two days and am finding myself grabbing, graham crackers, nilla wafers, pudding. I have eaten plenty of fruit too as we have some bananas that are close to being "too ripe."
Happy Mother's Day!
