Just a touch of busy going on here.

I'm alive.  I swear that I am.  I hadn't realized it had been so long since I had blogged.

PTA is up and running and we're busy!  We've had the summer meeting, two open houses-- one for the new school opening and one for just our school.  Oh my.

I have the PTA newsletter to do, which is fine but time consuming.  I also have that whole PTA president thing.

And work.

And my people like to live in a house that isn't squalor, they love to have food in the fridge and gosh darn it!  The people expect clean clothes!

Needless to say, sleep has been not as plentiful.

I also had a birthday.  K wrote on my cake.

My people had a birthday party for me.  

They decorated and wrote on the back door.  They also took me for a two-day surprise trip away.  We went to see Flight of the Butterflies at COSI (we cried and cried,) to Cox Arboretum to their butterfly house and on to King's Island where we rode all we wanted and left at 4:15 PM to drive back home.  Since school was in, there were no lines!  You Tube video is at the end of the Diamondback that I won't ride again. 

I stepped on this nest of bunnies while I was re-painting the bathroom medicine cabinet.

K wanted to mow the lawn and with Hubs right there, we decided that since the child is just shy of 5' tall, we could let her go with it.  She did a great job!  

The bathroom is finished!  Okay, there are just a few wonky spots on paint I need to touch up but it seriously got to a point that I couldn't do it anymore.  

The shower surround that Hubs thought was going to kill him.  In the replacement, it revealed rot of the outer wall, gave me that big hole in the wall . . .  Yes, this is a just-used-shower photo, but at least now you see what I've been talking about all this time.

I'm stuck with this blue counter top, so I always have to do something to make it work.  I repainted the vanity, the light and the medicine cabinet.  We reused as much as humanly possible.  

See?  I told you that I was busy!

I think we painted our bathrooms the same color :) It looks great!

I knew you were busy so I didn't worry. :o)

I do so love the bathroom color! K did a super job writing on your cake, and I have to say, if either of my girls were big enough, going into a big grade and wanted to mow, I'd sure as shootin' let 'em. ;o)
