Well the vanity top finally came in and will hopefully be installed by the weekend. It's been nice having a toilet downstairs again, but without a sink to wash your hands...
I'm not a fan of washing my hands over dirty dishes, hence the dishes get done after every meal. I do not use the dishwasher, since developing an aversion to emptying it while pregnant with Puddin' Pop. So I spend a lot of time washing dishes, and drying them, and putting them away.
On to phase 2 of our remodel/redecoration project. We have discussed repainting the kitchen, or actually removing the wallpaper and painting it. I just can't decide on a color. We have a huge bay window that I love, but it needs some covering. The dining room faces south and the sunlight coming in the window raises the temperature in that room and the den by at least 10 degrees. We've been looking at window treatments but I'm undecided between curtains and
bamboo blinds. I also want to finally get a 3 piece bench with a cushion in the middle to sit on. I think the kids would enjoy sitting on a booth like seat while eating dinner.
