The Longest Project of All Time

I have decided that my desk/vanity project may be the longest. project. ever. I have also decided that it's just part of being a mom. Every single thing seems to take a little longer when you know that you have very limited periods of time to work on something and you are almost guaranteed to be interrupted.

So...I had this idea and somewhere in my mind I knew that it wouldn't work out, but I think I really hoped that it would in my heart. I finally had a few minutes free yesterday (after I had folded three loads of laundry and cleaned the ENTIRE house) while Ellie napped and tried it. Epic fail. I fixed the part I had messed up and decided to distress the desk a little and then I'll apply a coat of something that I'm supposed to use now that it's all painted. I have never been afraid of messing it up or having to start all over. I am afraid of wasting the precious time and then trying to find the time to fix it.

With the way things are going, I'm not setting a completion date.

Big Daddy was away on a business trip and as soon as he parked in the garage I started distressing (and de-stressing) with my sandpaper. I'm going to try and finish that today.

In other news, I am feeling much better, but did wake up with ear/neck/head pain this morning. I took my beloved migraine medicine and feel much better. Ellie and I both have a cough and runny nose. She'll be staying with Daddy tonight while Maggie & I go to Awana.

Today is my mom's birthday. Maggie is determined that there is a surprise party planned at Nana's house today. She really doesn't believe me when I tell her that we're celebrating it on another day. Should be fun when reality comes crashing down on her.

This is exactly why I LOVE my Saturday DIY projects around home. I don't have time during the week to do all the things that I want done, so I think and plan all week and then work my hiney off on Saturdays! Don't you feel sooo accomplished when you finally finish a special project!! Good Luck! Hope it all comes together they way you want it to!

I feel like I'm trudging in concrete lately. I have a million things to do and never seem to have time to do it all. I have an iron clicking off and on above my head right now as I take a quick break to comment (while sitting on the floor). My head is splitting but that big basket of laundry isn't ironing itself.
