Today I'm feeling a little bit overwhelmed. I keep thinking about all the things that I need to do, which leads me to think about all the things that I want to do. This can be frustrating because these two lists rarely seem to overlap for me! Plus I'm really sleepy today so a simple task that usually wouldn't seem overwhelming, well...seems overwhelming. But I did manage to think back at all the things we've done around the house since we moved over the Christmas holidays and I thought I'd share.

Here is the front of our house. We really haven't done much to the exterior except a few small landscaping touch ups. The bushes on the right side of the garage are gone and we now have a cute planter with pretty yellow flowers. The grass is also MUCH greener since it's now summer instead of winter (when the pic was taken) and we have had lots of rain lately.

This is what our bedroom used to look like.

This is what is looks like now. We still have the artwork above the bed...just hadn't put it up yet. :) Koby was exhausted after painting the ceiling in this room. Not only did it take two coats of Kilz (primer) plus two coats of white paint, but it is also vaulted so his arms, neck and shoulders were killing him. But it looks really nice now...what a man!!!
(By the way, now that I'm looking at the paint in this picture it looks pinkish peach. It's not. It is Rich Taupe to be exact.)

This same weekend we also painted the living room, dining area and entry way.

Last but not least here are our "happy face" pictures that we took. We did this project over the Memorial day weekend and it took us about 3 1/2 days. Exhausted barely begins to describe what we were. Anyway, I made Koby take my picture as proof that 1) I helped and 2) I wore a heavy duty mask to protect myself and the baby from the paint fumes!
