Bloggy Break

Holy Cow! It has been a short while since i posted, but i have been very busy and not a fun busy until now. I decided I wanted to paint our living room and we have a popcorn one evening hubby went to work and i trimmed out the ceiling excited to get it painted the next evening ... WRONG ... the popcorn on the part i painted fell ... so the next evening i spent 5 hours scrapping the popcorn ceiling to get it flat ... trimmed it out again ... WRONG ... the part i trimmed became all crackly ... so hubby spent that day spraying the ceiling down with water and getting all the popcorn remnants cleaned off and then put a coat Kilz on it and a coat of paint and it looks WONDERFUL! Let me just say who ever invented the spray popcorn ceilings .... what the hell were you thinking?!?

Once the ceiling was finished we put 2 coats of paint on the walls and they look so fresh! This whole fiasco started on Monday and it was Sunday morning when I finally put my living room back drove me NUTS with things such a mess for nearly a week! There was a path to the kitchen sink and a path to the refrigerator which meant no cooking for me:O)

So last night we went and ordered our FlexSteel furniture and stopped by the carpet store and brought home some samples ... I'm so excited to get it done and get life back to normal!!!

Hubby works tonight so i'm planning on doing some sewing ... i really miss it! I finished my schnibble a few weeks ago and haven't touched anything since, so tonight I'm planning on working on my Pinwheel Party quilt along that Twiddletails is having.

Have a great Wednesday everyone and hopefully I'll have something to show in the next few days :O)

I am so with you on the "popcorn" thing! We just put in a quilt studio and I tried to paint the ceiling in the winter ~ what was I thinking. So it was just a few weeks ago before I could get it finished. The room is done (6 month project) and I am moving in. I know exactly how you feel!!

Enjoy your day!
