X is for X-tremely Busy Week

I'm bailing on you all this week.
I had an idea for "X."
Let's just say that birds were involved.
But, alas life has taken priority over blogging.
You are probably thinking "thank goodness she's not sharing."

I am going to have to force myself not to blog this week.
I may not even keep up with my blog reading.
This week is going to be nuts.

I will be in a training Mon-Fri from 7:30-4:40
My whole family will be working at or participating in Vacation Bible School this week.
(Our VBS is at night from 6-8:30)
I have a 10 page paper to write (due Wednesday)
and a final to take (due Wednesday)
neither of which I have started on.

Okay enough of the pity party.
I just don't want those of you who DO read my stuff to stop coming.
(That is a whole 'nother story, I won't share with you all those issues.)
So here is what you have to look forward to when I come back after my week-long hiatus:

Cutifying the bathroom
More shutters
Outdoor spaces
More paint issues

Now, just to show you what I was up to last night...

I have whined and pouted about my fireplace:

It's too dark!
Maybe I should paint it?
Should I paint it?
What color should I paint it?
What to do?
Well, I did something.
I decided to glaze some of the bricks with white paint to try to give the bricks more interest. It seemed like a good compromise to painting the whole thing.
Here is the result:
Yeah, I thought so too. Not so much a good compromise.
Kind of makes me throw up in my mouth.

Look like I am going to be painting the whole thing.
What is the issue anyway? I think it is the black grout. The orange colored bricks don't really help. I'm just skeerd.

Oh, and here is the other project I have going on this week:

This is Marley.
This was a total impulse buy.
We already have two dogs (remember Millie and Toto?)

I don't know what is wrong with me. I'm just a sucker for cute face.
Just promise me you'll be back next week.

  1. Promise.

    And I agree about the bricks. Sorry. Plan B?
