Are we having fun, yet?

I don't know how many of you gals
have done this sorta thing before



but


It is a LOT of work!


What were we thinking?

It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the
complete overhaul of the garage.
How come it is soo hard to get that paint color

from your mind to the paint chip to the wall?



Honey, please can we try again?




It is a time of challenge,
of setting prioities,

of letting my ideals go.


of remembering what is really important.



In the middle of this maddness, my youngest, Abigail (who does NOT get all the pressure) decides she wants to build a "kitty hospital" for the upcoming arrival of kittens. So, after Daddy takes time to help her with that, she must now paint it! I can NOT imagine! Then not any paint , or the paint that is in the paint gun but a color she likes and one that will not offend the boy kittens (her way of not being too girly!)



Just who's daughter is this anyway?!!!



Only 6 days left...I'm telling my vendors it is like Christmas, you plan, you work, and you work some more (like all night), you really are not ready but here it is so you stop, you enjoy and you celebrate!



So keep on going, remember that God is love, and all is good.




Whatever you do ,
work at it with all of your heart,
as working for the LORD...
Col. 3:23

Wow, that looks like so much work!
It will be awesome when you are all done...do you have paint colors all picked out? I loved the Kitty Hospital that is so sweet of your daughter to want to build that! I always enjoy your blog so much, thanks for visiting me too!
