well hello there....

my long lost friends! I got sick last Friday with a sinus infection and an ear infection. Can we say YUCK! I felt tired last Friday but by the time I woke up Saturday I felt like I had been run over by a mac truck! Through out the day I wondered if that truck would come back and just put me out of my misery.... but no luck. I laid on the couch in between helping Eric get the last of the carpet up.... and eventually I fell asleep. I slept most of the afternoon and that night I had to get myself up and put just enough makeup on and brush my hair so I didn't look like death before going to our Church's Trunk-or-Treat. When I got their I realized that I was in charge of the BIG inflatable jumpy thing (and no I was not contagious for those of you who had kids that stuck by my side most of the night waiting their turn in the jumpy thing). I had fun but by the time it was over and we helped clean up.... I was ready for bed once again! On Sunday Eric parents were at church and we had fun visiting with them at lunch. This week has been a little bit of a blur..... we have taken Halloween decorations down, moved furniture, cleaned a house, cleaned our own house, I cooked soup for a ladies night, and my cough is still around, oh and we are remodeling our counter tops in our kitchen (a simple and very inexpensive project that makes a world of difference until we can save up for new ones), and I painted 4 kitchen cabinet doors (2 of the doors have been feeling left out for some time now, when Eric painted our cabinets several months back he completely forgot about the ones over the stove. They now feel like part of the family and they are happy with their new look. The other 2 cabinets- well lets just say they were a make over gone wrong... kinda like a really bad hair cut. I tried to put some glaze on them and make them look antique..... well oil base glaze is goopy and it just doesn't look right.... so those poor things were the center of the funny looks and I finally covered up the goopy glaze with some plain white..... ) and this weekend we are going to a pancake breakfast for one of the teens and we are having company over for the football game. I'm also planning a PARTYLITE OPEN HOUSE! Check out the next post for details.
