Baskets, Renos and Happy Dances

Hooray, after many weeks of practice, a team committed to getting the result and lots of cheering and clapping...Alex made his first basket in Friday's game!!! Championship wins, top scoring, or any other award I received in the 10+ years I played pale in comparison in how truly elated it was to watch him score in a house league game.

Things have been hectic around the house, hence my lack of blogging. Alex's little sick event before christmas required the removal of the floor in his room which was started over the holidays, and snowballed in my absence as my DH did not stick to the plan and removed mouldings with no intention of putting them back up and doorways as well. Throw in him thinking the two 'children's' rooms should have matching flooring and me wanting to paint One room...later snowballing into him wanting the current office painted as well....well it doesn't leave alot of time for anything too exciting. We did run into a bit of downtime after Alex went back to school, we couldn't very well fire up the mitre saw in the neighboring room after 7:30, plus the pc's were offline as we weren't clogging them up with dust. Oye! Through in some major decluttering and it's a wonder I finished Alex's dragon (DD's Wish Upon A Star)

So, as for the rooms they are now primed, painted, have new laminate replacing the carpet and updated switches, thermostats and recepticles, now they just lack doors and trim...and Matt has yet to install the new heater. I think I'm almost on a first name basis with the paint desk and Home Depot and the Electrical section at Kents, lol.

I'm still trying to decide on my next stitching project, restarting In The Arms of An Angel is looking very promising for 2009 but goodness only knows ;)
