Little milestones..........the hallway, hall bathroom and all the outsides of the doors in the hallway have been painted!  Yeah for me!!!  All of the trim (minus 2 walls, the tv wall and the couch wall, only want to have to move these once) are prepped for paint.  Tonight I got 1 coat on about 60% of the prepped trim.  Today I stumbled upon the best painting tool ever! XIM Latex X-Tender, it's an additive that is supposed to help with brush marks and make the paint self-level better and I am in love!

My plan is to take Monday off of work (and no it's technically not vacation, it's my leave day for being on-call), send the girls to day care and finish all of the trim in the living room!  And something even better, I have someone coming on Saturday to give me a bid to paint the walls (I know this is lazy and not my style but I just want to be done) and what could be better than going to work in the morning and coming home to a painted house?  I do have a backup plan in case I can't afford it (I have some money, but not a ton set aside) I called Gramma to ask for money for my birthday (only 1 month early)......And yes this is what I want to my birthday!!!!

I had a nice surprise waiting for me when I got home today too!  My new cartridge for my Cricut came today!  Yeah!!  I just need to find the time to start the birthday banner for Kie's birthday, the only saving grace, I already designed it with the CDS so now I can just load paper and hit the cut button and everything is ready to go!  And now it's 11:45 so I am headed to bed, 5:30 comes early!  Good night, Sweet Dreams, Sleep Tight!!
