Good morning and happy Monday to everyone! What a beautiful weekend it was in North Central West Virginia! It was actually in the 70’s yesterday, and that is a rarity in these parts for the middle of January. We enjoyed it! LC got to go run at the park, and Mr. 5 Yr. Old and Mr. 12 Yr. Old both played outside as much as possible. Mr. 12 Yr. old had two basketball games that his team won and he scored 13 points yesterday. I was even able to take something outside and spray paint! It was awesome (more on that coming soon)!
I have to give a little shout out to Miss 16 year old, who finally got her trigonometry grade up to a B. She has been struggling with this class and has made C’s on her first two 6 weeks report cards. She has been grounded for the past 6 weeks, and I think it would be fair to say it was one of the worst 6 weeks of her life! She worked really hard and got it up to a B, and even made a B on her final exam! I am proud of her for bringing it up, but wish she would work that hard all of the time! This is one of those classes where I know I was never going to see an A, so I gave that up long ago!
I had to leave work early on Friday because Mr. 5 year old had a stomach virus, so I had a little spare time, and I decided to do a mini laundry room makeover that cost me a total of 13 bucks. My laundry room is right at the bottom of the stairs of our split level home, and you can see it when you walk in the front door. Much of the time I leave the doors open if I am doing laundry, so I want it to look good. I have plans to do a little more work in this closet, but for now, I was working with practically no budget and just trying to make it a little more presentable.
I see so many blogs that have such adorable laundry rooms, and it makes me so jealous! I want a laundry room like that, but let’s face it, It just isn’t going to happen in this house. Maybe the next one. I gave you a peek at my laundry room a couple of weeks ago. You can find it here and here.
