Days Spent

The last month has been spent waiting on the house, being sick, cleaning, de-cluttering and finding things to take up my time so I don't go crazy waiting. We did the home inspection as we let you all know and are waiting on the appraisal and in the mean time are also waiting to see if the bank will pay for any of the fixing. We are praying they will at LEAST take care of the roof. Surprisingly, the bathroom is the cheapest part and the one they are least likely to take care of. Fine by me! We have had a few estimates and I would love to make this basement bathroom awesome. Maybe even put in a full bath to up the value.

As you can see, the shower is denting on the right side. Clear sign that ripping out the wall will be in order. Like I said, it will actually be much cheaper than originally thought, especially with great friends offering to help.

This is how Emily spent last week. Poor girl had a horrible fever for 2 days and vomited the day after that. Lindsey then later got the puking part of the illness for a couple days also. Then life returned to normal.

And recently I've made some flower bows for fun and some other bows. Then I realized that Emily's Easter dress is PERFECT with one of the flower bows. I am so happy that she has something to wear that goes so well with her dress. So much fun! Lindsey has a beautiful pink dress for Easter and I have a few pink bows that will work, not as well as this one, but she will still be cute.

Ignore the nasty rental carpet. These were a lot of fun to make and I think my bow making skills are improving. The pink and polka-dot bow will match Lindsey's pink polka-dot silk dress. There you are, that is what has kept us busy.

Jessica, the bows are really pretty. I bet, if you wanted to, you could actually make money by making bows to sell.

I love the dress. It's so pretty! I hope that your fam is feeling better in time to enjoy Easter. Happy Easter!!

I don't understand why your children are always getting sick. It seams like they are always under the weather. Do you send them to play with the sick neighbor children? Those poor things
