This week is going to be all about the house. I can’t seem to stay focused much lately on this blog. It’s just my way of keeping you all guessing, right?
Last you knew I had this MONSTER of a project going at my house called filling all of the white trim where it had been put up with caulking and painting the nail holes and seams. Three floors full. Oh, and painting all of my interior doors.
MONSTER project. It was almost so overwhelming I couldn’t begin.
And then comes the saying, how do you eat an elephant? A little bit at a time, right? This elephant required an army to eat it. And the most wonderful thing happened- my friends came to my rescue. They had talked about throwing me a baby shower. But let’s face it. When it comes to baby number four, you know what you need and what you don’t. And I just don’t want a bunch of baby stuff that only new moms fall for (hello wipes warmer!).
So they decided to throw me a painting and caulking party instead. And to help remove the boulder on my back that’s been staring me in the face forever now.
This army of women is the greatest. I have lived in many places in my lifetime. And I know something special when I see it. We support each other and are there for each other better than any other friendship among a group of women I’ve ever seen. I have won the friend jackpot and I feel incredibly lucky.
I know I’m making you all jealous right now and rightly so. If you don’t great friends, I hope that a wonderful group of ladies (or at least one very special one) comes your way. I know mine are an answer to prayer.
I’ll try posting some pictures tomorrow. But for today, all I want to say is thank you to the incredible ladies who threw me the very best shower I could ever ask for.
