Okay so I missed last week’s new “friday recap” feature. One for two – not such a great track record so far, huh? Well, I’m back at it this week!
The house? It’s getting close, you guys. From the outside, it’s really looking like a house. The garage door is being installed today, and then we just have the porch to finish, plus the whole site to clean up (I’m looking at you, dumpster). Oh, and lighting. Those dangling cords need to tie into lights.
Things are also moving quickly inside. Everything on the main and upper floors is done being primed, the furnace is now on (heat!), trim around windows has happened, some tiling is complete, the doors are being hung right now, and hardwood floors will be installed next week.
Yesterday I spent the better part of the afternoon there just cleaning up. So. Much. Dust.
In other life news, our little munchkin is fab. Look at how out of control her “fountain pony” had gotten in the pic below. So long! But the problem was the hair was always covering her eyes when it was down, and the girl just won’t have anything to do with a barrette or headband. I’ll put it in and distract her, but inevitably she’ll remember it’s in there a few minutes later and pull it out.
So I got the nerve up and cut her bangs ever so slightly. But now I have the old mullet problem. I don’t really feel like paying to take her in for an actual haircut yet, but am nervous to cut the back myself. Plus, I love putting in little pigtails. #hairproblems. Anyone have any advice on cutting baby girl hair?
And although temporarily living in the country is a pain in my butt right now with the long commute every day, there are some perks. Like the CP holiday train that came through town last Friday night! It’s a big train that is all lit up, and travels across Canada, stopping in towns along the way. One of the cars open up, and a band comes on and plays Christmas tunes. You bring canned food to donate to your local food bank. All in all, a fun, feel-good, event! It was chilly, but we bundled and danced to the songs. Maya loved the lights.
Hope you guys have a great weekend! Anything on the agenda?
