Since I haven't posted on my blog in forever I decided to stop in and just chat a little. I have been busy with my new job and making sure the kids are in a routine that works for all of us since they are going to school a lot later in the morning than normal.

We have started some major home improvement jobs around the house. Nothing major like tearing out anything and replacing it (although that is what I plan on doing to this ugly carpet soon), but I have painted our master bedroom finally and immediately after completing one wall Vele says this room feels better and seems bigger and brighter. It is strange how beige/tan can almost make a room seem much smaller than it is to us. Our bedroom is 27x22 so it always felt big but for some reason it started to feel smaller than it is. I plan on getting us some very nice seating in there, maybe a small loveseat or something? I haven't really figured that out. But I did replace the old beige sectional that was in our family room this weekend. I love love love the new leather sectional. It is so the style that I'm looking for as the base piece of the living room. And that thing is huge. But I also need to paint the family room and then I'll upload photos of the space.

I'm still without my laptop. I have come to the conclusion that it really is going to be going to laptop heaven. And despite the fact that we went computer shopping a couple of weekends ago I didn't get a new one. Although somehow hubby talked me into getting a new family computer. And so I got an all-in-one. I love that there is no longer a computer box and the monitor is huge compared to what we had before. But I'm still trying to learn how to use windows 8. That has been an adjustment. But I'm going to get it eventually I hope. I'm also going this weekend to look at laptops again. It is so crazy that we new have 2 family computers, and a laptop but I still need my own personal one. Hopefully I get one this weekend instead of something else.

Well I'm off to bed and I hope that everyone has a great week.
