Commence Countdown

School starts again in 13 days, however, on Monday A1 begins daily practices for volleyball and on the 27th I have an all day training session for work. In addition to this we have two doctor’s appointments, a back to school carnival and other various activities to squeeze in. This really cuts into the remaining vacation.

We’re also in the tedious process of sorting through clothes, seeing what fits and, if needed, what can be hemmed or mended in preparation for the upcoming year. A3 presents quite a challenge because she refuses to part with anything. 

Yesterday we gutted A1’s bedroom, prepped the walls and painted. Here is a before and after shot.

She went from four shades of ultra-brights (pink, orange, lime green and turquoise) to a pale green. We purged two large garbage bags full of clothes from her dressers and closets. The endeavor took the entire day so besides from casting on yet another necessary dishrag I’ve no knitting, spinning or crafty news to share.   The weather has been glorious so I’m chasing the girls into the yard and pool at every opportunity to exploit their remaining days of freedom. Cheers!

    It looks gorgeous. And, that is quite enough for one day, girlfriend!

  2. Wow! What a change in that room. Nicely done! Good luck getting all that done.

    Wayyy more sophisticated! It’s gone from a lttle girl’s room to a young woman’s space. They grow up so fast!!

    And summer is over far too soon. Sigh.

  4. I have to say I love the before room, but the after is nice too.. I would kill for a window seat like that! Lucky girl!

  5. Great job! Enjoy the last few days of summer. Mine is rapidly disappearing, too. Kid #2 comes home tomorrow–we pick her up in Tacoma (somewhere…location TBD). Hugs all around!

  6. Well… If nothing else, she should sleep better at night. It went from wide awake to very restful.

  7. Much more sedate and grown up.
