Yes, that is my deck. And yes, we are out of school again because of "snow" and possible dangerous driving conditions. The teachers are really happy, I know, but Mama ain't happy! What I really want to do is curl up in my pjs with my book and a fire and some more coffee. But what my kids want to do is not watch me read a book in my jammies. They want to be run here and there. ugh!
While we're looking at this photo, don't forget to admire the BARN that's almost the size of my house that my neighbor plopped in his back yard two feet from MY fence! GRRRRRRRRRRRRR! That'll be great for resale!
To add insult to injury on the no snow front, Brian is out of town for the night. He had a business meeting in Atlanta. Returning from Atlanta requires him to traverse "Mont Eagle", the one place in our state that probably WILL get some snow and ice today. Great!
And making it even WORSE is that my dear sweet friend/neighbor (who is the mother to my boys daily cohorts in crime) is out of town. And she had the NERVE to take her kids with her. People, this is NOT a good combination. Not only is my confidante and fellow-commiserator gone, my boys entertainment is gone too. And adding further insult, she's gone somewhere sunny and warm. And she's gone somewhere fabulous for a very fun reason. Did I mention that I hate her! :) Not really! I love you, and you know it.... but right now I'm not speaking to you!
So... since I don't have any fun snow pics to show you, I'll show you something really cuter... look at this new dress I got for Meg from my friend.... she made it!
And, I might as well show you a little of what else has been happening around here....
This is my steps last week...
And my banister
And not exactly the "after" shot, but the "in progress" shot is behind Meg....
Ooooh, I'm so excited to have gotten rid of that carpet.... and check out my new spindles. :) Yay! I'm so glad my friend (the builder) talked me into the iron. I'm totally in LOVE! I can't wait to show you the finished product, but it will probably be a few weeks. I have lots of other before and after for you too!
