shopping, tired, & hungry
We went to a home improvement store today. Matt’s off, and this weekend’s “projects” revolve around finishing/working on Eli’s room conversion from baby nursery to big boy room. This weekend, the goal is to do a little painting, and perhaps start on a toy box/chest. We looked at buying them, but realized that for the cost of a cheaply made toy box, we could make a much better quality one. So, we’re goin’ for it.
First we priced everything, and then I had a coupon from a competitor store. Asked if this store would honor it, and indeed they did. That saved us a trip! Went back through the store, picked up all the items we needed, got the sheet of wood cut to sizes we needed, and picked a paint color for it.
By the time all of this was finished, the kids were both screaming, and I was starving. It was approximately 10:45am, and we had eaten a pancake breakfast. I popped open a bag of M&M’s for them (yes, I’ve become one of those people who pays later… but I do pay!) to occupy them the last few minutes to prevent a total meltdown of them, therefore me.
After paying, went to Sub.way where I had a BLT sub with pickles, banana peppers, spinach, oil & vinegar, mayo, and of course bacon/lettuce/tomato. This baby is craving some things I don’t normally eat. 🙂 I ate it, and I could have eaten another. I’m still hungry.
Anyways, hopefully everyone takes a nap today, ’cause Rachel’s no-napping policy has finally caught up to me and I feel tired to my very insides. This afternoon I hope to start on the room conversion. Will post pics as we get stuff done!
