alone...day 2

Well, it's Day 2 of my Week Alone... Todd has been working on the basement since last week, (though it's only able to get done a couple hours here, a couple hours there, since the poor man still has to go to work) and yesterday I ripped apart the boys' bedroom and began painting. I'm really excited to surprise them with a 'room makeover' when they get home...although, it will really be Seth & Luke's room, as Bryce will be moving out, once Kate has vacated her room to move to the new basement room. As you can see, it's all a big chain-of-events, pretty much dependent on the basement. So, in addition to painting in the boys room today, and trying to find them some new bedding, I will also be painting drylock on the cement block walls in the basement. My house looks like a construction zone at present. I have a toddler bed and a taken-apart bunk bed sitting in the living room (hopefully the biggest surprise for Seth...he had said he would be content to not switch rooms if he could just have a 'regular' bed, as opposed to a bunk bed. Told him I wasn't sure it was possible to fit 2 'regular' beds in their room, but low and behold, I made it work! I hope he will be excited.) In the meantime, I 'created' a trundle bed for Luke...called shoving his little mattress under Seth's bed and pulling it out each night til Bryce moves on! It'll do.

Anyway, enough talk about my projects, time to get busy. I woke up with a headache today, so I gotta try to get rid of that so I can keep charging on. (I think it actually came from staying in bed too long...that'll teach me!! At least it was nice to have the option to do so!!)

It sounds like you have a very full schedule to keep you busy in your alone time. It is funny that we anticipate that aloness, is that word, but then we dread it only to have it fly by before we know it even happened. We to are in the process of finishing our basement.I feel your pain for the construction!
