Changes....

So, Cole came home from work sick yesterday...he ate something that really didn't agree with him, and he was in horrible pain. He was still not feeling great this morning, so he took a sick day to take it easy. It worked out great for me, because he felt good enough to let me sleep after working. So, when I woke up, I found him getting ready to use the table saw....and now the best part....all our doors have moulding!!!! Obviously, it's not primed or painted yet...I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to paint it white (to match the doors) or stain it to match the floors. I'm leaning towards staining the moulding we put down for baseboards, but I'm undecided about what to do around the doors...any advice or opinions would be highly appreciated. I also helped with some of the nailing...and in the process learned how to use our new nail gun. Pretty cool...I like power tools. Then, I had my monthly hair appointment...cut and color and cover up my fully gray head...
I've been wearing my hair a bit shorter the last couple of times, and I really like it...there's just something about getting your haircut and styled that makes you feel beautiful and powerful.

So, when I got home, I found another great surprise....Cole had hung our new window screens that came yesterday!!!

You see, since the remodel, our sliding glass doors haven't had anything to cover them up. We had hand me down vertical blinds before, and didn't love them but at the time we put them up, they were our only option. I've been eyeing these sliding screens for a couple of years...and I'm so excited about them! www.gaiam.com, they were on clearance.
The boys were dying for me to take their pic with the new screens.....
And of course....Talia got a little "Dorothy" doll in her happy meal, and she LOVED it. So, Cole had to get her a skull to play with too...and then said (as she's happily playing with the doll and the skull) "That's much better". You know, we have 2 boys...why can't our little girl be girly? Well, she is girly, so maybe he's just trying to widen her horizons. She already likes to play with whatever toys the boys have, so WHY did he have to get out the skull?
