You may have noticed that I didn't post anything the end of last week. Don't worry, I'm not dead. Or missing. Or sick. I'm just suffering from a case of MTGB. or "Multi-tasking gone bad". Yep, I tried to do a few too many things at once.
Dutch Boy sent me some of their new Refresh paint line to try out. Our kitchen and family room are in total need of a makeover, so I was thrilled. Thursday morning I decided to prep my kitchen for said new paint job. When I started, my kitchen looked like this:
All I wanted to do was pull down the old wallpaper border. The first two strips pulled off without a hitch. Nice and easy. Then I got to the back piece. No such luck. I pulled out the ladder and attempted to pull it off, but could only get pieces the size of a quarter at a time. Frustrating! I showered, got ready, and drove the two younger boys to school to watch the Halloween parade. Neither one of them had a totally completed costume, but they looked good enough. After that, I:
-run to the music store to pick up son #1's piano book
-run to the plumbing supply store to return the kitchen faucet
-stop at Shopko to pick up the last few pieces of son #4's ghost costume
-stop at the grocery store to pick up groceries, soup ingredients and candy for son #3's school party
-stop at the fabric store to pick up fabric for son #3's ninja costume because he wanted a red belt and all we had was blue
I came home, unloaded the groceries, had a quick lunch, and started chopping veggies for soup.
After that, I headed to the elementary school to help with Halloween party in classroom of boy #3.
Then I came home to work on the Chicken Noodle soup that I was taking to the school for SEP dinners for the teachers at the elementary school.
Found out son #1 didn't have a ride to basketball practice after all. Drove carpool into town, leaving son #2 in charge of soup.
Came back and started printing off paperwork for scout rechartering. Made noodles for soup and added them to the pot.
Grabbed the soup and two youngest boys and rushed down to the school for our SEP appointments, and to drop off the soup. Met with both of their teachers.
Rushed home to finish entering info and printing off scout rechartering paperwork. Ate dinner. Made frosting for totally laborious cake from the night before. It was just as much of a pain as the cake, and had to be put in the fridge to chill.
Sat down to add the final touches to ghost costume for son #4. At this point my hubbie walked in, started laughing, and said, "Look how many things you have going on here! This is crazy! I'm taking a picture because you have to blog this." I rolled my eyes at him, but then looked around and realized he was right. I'm pretty sure I have lost my mind.
Then I met with scout leader and handed him all the rechartering paperwork for his 7:30 meeting with the district.
Ran back down to the school to pick up my empty crock pot.
Found out that someone else had already taken it for me. Saw a couple of my neighbors' dishes still there, so decided to return them so my trip wouldn't be a total waste. Drove to two neighbor's houses.
Came home and frosted cake.
Met with scout leader for second time because he realized I had forgotten to add one of the new scout leaders to the roster. Tried to fix it but couldn't.
Ate a piece of cake and collapsed on the sofa.
Wow, that was a lot of rambling. If you're still reading this, you are a true blog friend!
I promise I will be back later with something fun.
