I am a 40-something year old mother, and wife of 16 years. Ralph and I have 4 boys and 1 girl. I also have 1 granddaughter. I love country living, going to church, all things domestic, and politically conservative.
Well...my sons actually painted more than I did. It came out great and will be posting pictures later this evening. I am thrilled with the outcome and am very proud of my boys. I suppose when the going gets tough, the tough paint!!! I painted some things silver to get them to match the new color. The ceiling and cabinets are to follow. I am going to pick out new flooring some time soon.
I got a bunch of stuff at Salvation Army today. I bought 6 cut glass water glasses and on depression era reproduction goblet, and old fashioned wood stove iron, an Evan Picone purse, sneakers for one of my boys, a great pair of Sunday dress shoes, and a Martha Stewart book. All that for less than $20!! I got OPPS paint a Walmart for the kitchen and livingroom. I will be painting in the morning, God willing.
I am trying to get back into the swing of things again. Since I've been homeschooling things have gotten all out of wack. I let my 11 year old take care of the animals lately and discovered rats have been stealing eggs. My 13 year old has been doing wash to help out and my husband's white t-shirts and socks are a lovly shade of a blue gray mix. It's just so easy to have the children do it, but the effects can be, well interesting!!!
Big Momma gave birth to at least 10 babies. We lost only one through the night. Momma Z is nesting and ready to give birth any minute! The entire family is so excited! Pictures will be added when I can get the camera away from my husband! We lost all our babies! I don't know why our mommas aren't taking care of them. I am going to get new mommas
