A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Mom Ramblings #24

Mom Ramblings #24

1. Wednesday we had a snow day. We had a ton of snow. That is all. It reminded me of the blizzards we had when we were growing up. The snow piles are amazing!

Tom, the saint that he is, along with many of the neighbors, helped each other get the snow out of driveways and sidewalks and in front of the hydrants and mail boxes.  It was really windy, so every once in awhile I got a nice shot of his tush in his carharts. That's okay.

2. We spent the day lining up cars.

And puzzle pieces...

I have no idea where they would pick that up....

3. The other day Gus wanted to go to school so he wore his backpack around for the day.

4. I got to spray paint a few things the other day when it was 33 whole degrees out. I ran quickly out to the garage, sprayed and came back in. Worked great! I found a new color that I just love. Rustoleum "lagoon". It is so great!

I painted this lamp....and added the red velvet trim to the shade. (You saw this one yesterday.)

I did this lamp too....

Then I did this little side table. It's got a chalkboard top. Love it!

(All of these items are available over at www.whitebutterflyfurniture.blogspot.com, just in case you are wondering!)

5. I woke up at 1:50 am on Thursday morning to get this:

I know. I KNOW. I know I'm a freak. I'm okay with it. I am. I almost didn't wake up. I set my alarm, but didn't turn it on. I woke up at exactly 1:50 am. Luck. Pure luck. So, my contract was up, I've been patiently waiting. I didn't want to miss out.  It seems there are plenty for us Verizon customers and I could have waited until today, but, I felt like I was young and carefree getting up in the middle of the night for a cool new gadget. Had I needed to sit outside and wait in line there is no way I would have gotten it. But, I didn't. I ordered it from my cozy bed. I'm good with that. Now, what apps do I need?

6. Tom took Porter (5) skiing for the first time and it was so fun to watch the video. Porter is just like his father. He picks up sports quickly and is good immediately. Love that about them.

7. Monday I will show you the new "Beulah".
