Last night Ty's swing set was delivered after two days of waiting/rescheduling with the freight company. Another story in itself. Now Sean is outside putting it together while I finish up in here. Both kids are awake right now so I'm averaging about 1 1/2 sq. feet per hour actually getting paint on the walls. We put some impossible deadlines on these few projects before our trip but we are double-dog-daring each other that we can get it all done. We're both competitive enough to make it happen. I'll literally keep you posted :)

Let Me Paint a Picture for You
Let me paint a little picture of what it's been like the last few days: Drop cloths throughout, blue tape sticking to everything from the floor to the couches three rooms away, (thanks to Ty,) countless--more than even I care to admit--episodes of Little Einsteins and Blue's Clues, grilled cheese for every meal, and white trim with green paint accents. That last part is a by-product of the way that we paint, not actually part of the decor. We'll work on that when we're done. Sean painted in his favorite shorts last night while I was at a movie and now they look like a child's art project. When he walks by them he just kinda internally kicks himself. I've never seen him care at all about his clothes so I know it's hittin' him hard for him to make any kind of facial expression in response to an article of clothing.
