feeling the need to blog

I don't know what I am going to type about this morning, but everyone seems to be missing my blogs. Never thought they were particularly interesting... house progress, talking about my boring life. So here we go again.

House... we have floors. They are lovely- the laminate is such a warm knotty oak- it looks so great with the beige in the livingroom and the yellow in the kitchen and classroom. It's awesome. The boys floors are ROCKIN- that metal look with the red walls- it's so neat- better than I imagined- I can hardly wait for their rooms to be done. The tiles look good too. I am concerned about our room, but we'll see how it comes together. The carpet isn't in yet, but the paint has a much more pinky tone to it than I expected, and I'm not sure how they will go. Ah well- worst case scenario- I'll be painting in a month or two. Today they will continue- and I am hoping to get a closing date out of them today.

School... going well. We've sorted out some issues and scheduling frustrations. I'm starting to get into the fall routine- hockey has started for W, Awana starts for both of the boys tonight, and everything else is in full swing.

Hubby... not good. He threw out his back two days ago putting on his shoe of all things, and hasn't been the same since. Taking the whole rest of the week off work(the one time that it's cruddy to be self employed- no sick days).

Have a meeting this afternoon for a nation-wide conference I'm helping to organize. Feeling very inept and unqualified for that, but we'll see how it goes. How hard can it be, right?

There- that's my life right now- now everyone who misses my blog will be updated on my life. It's really not that exciting, you know.

Things I will NOT miss about our trailer

- boys rooms like a train berth
- mattress that makes E and I roll into the middle of the bed
- ugly vinyl floor with no finish left on it making it impossible to clean
- a hallway like a bowling alley
- washing dishes by hand
- backwards water hoses on the washer
- lousy insulation
- noisy furnace
- inept air conditioners that constantly trip the breakers
- a front door in my living room- and kitchen
- the only play area for the boys in my living room or kitchen
- ugly curtains
- drawers that stick
- no counter space
- no storage space
- no bookshelves
- my kitchen table doubling as a classroom desk and computer desk
- light fixtures that look like small ugly punch bowls
- kitty litter in my closet
- microfibre couch and chair that show every little rub mark and fingerprint
- making the boys beds and hitting my head on the top bunk
- having to close the bedroom door to open the closet door and drawers
- having to close the bathroom door to open the dryer all the way
- pinching my finger between the taps and the backsplash
- not being able to hang anything on the walls
- water heater and well pump in my closet

There will not be a blog entitled "things I will miss about our trailer".
