A day off at the Arnold's house!!

It seems as though my kitchen sink looks like this quite often. Is this what happens when you own an old house (our's was built in 1868, so I guess it could be considered "old"). We definately have a "fixer upper". We are really loving it though. Phil and I have enjoyed remodeling our home. We very seldom have a day off at the same time. He always has Saturdays off, but I always work Saturdays. My day off is usually Thursday, which works well, because that is usually the day Jordana needs me to watch Emma. I always look forward to those times that I can spend with her. Unfortunately, I wasn't needed today, because her Daddy was going to be home. So...I managed to talk Phil into taking a vacation day (it really wasn't hard, he agreed quickly). Well, I said all that to say this.....we got up early to get to work on Becky's room. When we moved into this house (a year ago) her room was the first to get painted. It took 5 coats of white paint to cover the hideous purple that was on the walls. Becky knew how she wanted it to look and we started the process. It was a process that requires time and talent. Phil has the talent, but didn't seem to have enough time. I am so excited!! Because it is now finished!!! Phil is just touching up the touch-ups that he had to touch-up when he touched up. Uh....did that make any sense? I hope you know what I mean. I'm hoping that this afternoon I can put everything back together. I just have some washing and ironing of bedding and curtains to do. Knitting? You ask. What knitting? Give me some remodeling and decorating to do anyday!!! When it's all completely finished, I'll post some pictures! Well, back to work. Have a wonderful day!
