The Best Laid Plans

This is how I spent most of my weekend.
Ok, admit it. How many of you with children laughed at me when I said I was going to redo my living room this weekend? As you suspected, I accomplished pretty much nothing. I'm still learning that when you have a child it takes about two hundred times as long to do one teensy tiny project. Considering that I can't find time to shower on a daily basis I'm not exactly sure why I thought it would be possible to paint seven frames, put pictures inside of them, hang them properly, sew pillow covers for my couch, paint a coffee table, and put together a new bookshelf. Oh, and still do all the other stuff I have to accomplish on a daily basis such as four loads of dishes and six of laundry.

The thing is that I used to be able to do all those things and then go out for a hot night on the town. I probably could've gotten more accomplished than I did if I hadn't been so exhausted on Saturday that I chose a nap over home design, but when your kiddo wakes you up at 6AM (after three night feedings), an hour in bed is so much more appealing than a beautiful living room. I'll get it all finished eventually; probably right around the time we decide it's time to move.
