busy, busy

To prepare for our trip back to the U.S. in a couple of weeks, I decided to embark on a new project: Stripping the wallpaper from three bedrooms in my friend's house.

I'm happy to do this for a few reasons, the first being that I loooove re-decorating. #2 is that when I'm working on the project, my friend feeds my kids dinner, which I also looooove. #3 would be that it keeps my mind off getting ready to leave for the U.S.

Don't get me wrong, I am excited to see my house, my friends, my family, my Target. But most of the packing up can't be done until the last minute, so to keep my mind off the awaiting suitcases, I am more than happy to do a little re-decorating.

That and the fact that the weather is still not cooperating and there have been no trips to the beach since early May. Oh well, if you can't go to the beach, go to Castorama!

Your fingernails don't look like that after stripping wallpaper do they???
I'd be happy with a manicure like that at any time.

Caro, my nails have NEVER looked like that! Let's just say I have good "typing" nails!
