As you know, I recently had new kitchen flooring installed. (I should add that I was the assistant - not that I could do it by myself though!) I have been too busy to craft the last week...the MOPS pancake dinner was a success in many ways. We had lots of members there to help cook, serve, and clean up, plus over 130 people came out for dinner. The first MOPS meeting of the year was not as well attended as in the past but we still had a good meeting with several new faces.
We had friends over Sunday afternoon/evening for an early Labor Day celebration. Miss M enjoyed playing dress up with one of the boys who came. We cooked brats and hot dogs, played on the swingset, laughed, and just relaxed.
Monday morning we decided that the ugly kitchen wallpaper had to go. It came off pretty easily, but we quickly learned why there was wallpaper...the walls are in really bad shape in several areas. After reading and talking to folks, it seems that skim coating is the way to go. Cupcake Daddy is working lots of overtime lately, so the plan is to hire a neighbor with construction experience to get it finished and ready for us to paint. I never seem to have both money and time at the SAME time, do you?
In other news, we are considering adopting a dog. Our Murray died in January 2007 and we really are a dog family. He was a puppy when we first got him and Bailey is about four years old. She is a rescue dog and came to be with her present family about 2 years ago. Her owner has been out of work for several months and decided it is time to find a new home for Bailey. We may go meet her today or tomorrow, but I am afraid we will fall in love and can't turn away if we see her in person...especially Miss M.
I will keep you posted about our decision....
