Guys, life got the best of me. I had a killer idea for a post today but I just couldn’t do it. I could blame Photoshop (because man I can’t figure it out) but that wouldn’t be fair. I just have too much going on and I’m feeling overwhelmed and distracted and mediocre at lots of things as a result. It’s that quicksand feeling. The To Do list is getting longer by the minute, and the more I get through, the faster things pile up. And then I realize that these sweet children of mine are having first days of school and accomplishments and moments and I’m too preoccupied with photo edits or the project deadline or the right way to embed a video onto a site. The Catch-22 is that I LOVE all of those things. I could spend all day designing the web site. Or editing the pictures. Or writing the posts. Or playing with my kids. Or doing the projects. (Incidentally, I could NOT spend all day dealing with our pile of laundry, but that’s something else I have on my To Do list.)
I’m sorry today’s one of those days. I know you understand and I know everyone’s been there, but I just ran out of hours and energy and stamina. And that’s an aggravating feeling. But… I’m working on some fun stuff which is the good part! Want a sneak peak?
Here’s another hint about the big powder room reveal. Still waiting on a little magic regarding a new door. And I have to caulk and fill nail holes. Does ANYone enjoy the finishing touches? Ugh.
I have another segment coming up on WTNH Good Morning, CT this weekend so I’ve been prepping for that. Think fall. Think apples. Think Emmy-Award-Winning. Probably.
I’m SOOOOOOOOO fired up to be working with the Home Depot blog on an upcoming style challenge so I’ve been putting the kids to work with that also.
Oliver had his first day of school yesterday. And Martha STARTS TODAY! What… she just learned to walk, right? She only goes for an hour at first which barely counts but she doesn’t care. She’ll be bragging about it all day to Louisa. Such an ego.
I think I’ve reached a decision for our new master bedroom fabric… I think. I posted on Instagram and Facebook about it got some great feedback… The one on the left matches the room pretty well, but I worry it will seem a little dark… the one on the right is neutral enough that I think I could tie it in to existing colors and bedding. What do YOU guys think?
I have some fun posts coming up over at Classy Clutter and Vrai Magazine.
Oh, and did I mention we’re having 60 people over for Mark’s belated 40th birthday party in two weeks! Gulp. We’re having a local taco joint catering so I won’t have to deal with food, but still… the cleaning. Do you guys lose your mind with the cleaning when it comes time to entertain or is it just me? Any words of wisdom?
Do you think you all could just come over so we can all hang out and I can just pick your brain about ALL OF THESE THINGS without going through the nonsense of commenting on a silly ol’ blog? Let’s just to that, mkay? Until then… here’s a picture I shared over on Instagram that makes me smile.
