current state of our mad house...

We have about a million house projects started, and no time it seems to finish them. With us being out of town so much recently, I feel like i am playing cleanup/catch-up all week  instead of getting anything finished...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As of right now the area above our stove looks like this...been looking like this for a couple weeks now...Mr H is installing an over the range microwave and the vent is not cooperating as much as we would like.  I have faith in him though.  


thats his "i want to punch you in the face" face

the room formerly known as an office is being transtioned into a playroom...sort of. It still needs new paint on the walls (something a little lighter and brighter), some more shelves, a desk, etc...but right now its just an unfinished room.  and it currently looks like a tiny toy bomb went off in there. 

the guest room is now housing the bookshelf from the office, sans the books.  I am just having a hard time filling in each cube...and deciding where i am going to put a couple hundred books...


there are about 15 different color paint samples in various rooms in our home right now...i have FINALLY come to a decision on what color to paint.  now we just have to paint. and what started out as just painting the kitchen has now turned into painting the whole downstairs of the house...Mr H is thrilled.


We really need to free up some weekends now so we can actually finish something we have started....
