Sorry it's been a while!

I really didn't think I was going to take this long to post, but it's been a long month already! I feel like I've fallen so behind in so many areas, but my desire is to catch up with everything, including blogging. I'm new to this and didn't realize how quickly I could get behind! First, I want to thank Regina from Regina's Family Seasons, who was so sweet to give me two awards! Wow! I never imagined I'd get an award for this and especially so soon after starting my blog! I just want to say thank you, Regina, for making me feel so special! You are truly a blessing and I hope to get to meet you one day! Now if I can only figure out how to accept them! I have no idea how to do a link (not that advanced yet!) or get the awards from her page! Arggggggh!!!! I hate being a newbie! LOL

Second, this past weekend has been a blur at my house! We finally decided to have the boys' rooms painted so we could set up their rooms and get all four out of one room! My aunt's ex-husband (my uncle?) is an awesome handyman (can do it all!) and was able to come from Frisco, where he lives, and paint both rooms. I know a lot of you are probably great at painting, but I am so not a painter! I've given it my best shot, but it usually has to be redone or finished by a professional. I figured, why bother this time going through the motions? Just hire someone!!! We had been quoted exhorbitant prices and then I remembered he had done a lot of work for my aunts and cousin, so when I saw him a few weeks ago, I asked how much he would charge. He told me $30 a room, which was a steal (gave him a little more though for the great job)! He even said he'd come back and paint my laundry room when I get my new washer & dryer. Of course I'll be posting about that after income tax time! He just finished today (three days total) and I will post pics as soon as I get things situated.

So, that's what my month has been like! Thanks for putting up with my delays!
