While The Cat's Away... The Mice Will Play

Nathan took my camera to a paintballing tournament so I have been unable to take pictures of all that I have been doing around here.

A couple of things that have kept me busy:

1. Yardsaling-- of course.

2. Justifying the dresser that I purchased at a yard sale on Friday by beginning the slow process of stripping, sanding, and painting it and another one that I had hidden in the closet. (Bonus-- they are a coordinating pair!)

3. Going from brown-black to blonde!-- sorta.

4. Trying to figure out how to set a mouse trap and how not to find a dead mouse in it. Would you believe I actually had to watch a video on how to set a trap! Ummm remember... I'm a blonde now--hehe! (Sorry all my fair-haired friends ;p Speaking of dumb blondes, blogger keeps saying I misspelled the word, I guess you can spell blonde two ways.)

5. Dealing with a little 1 yr. old who just got his top molars and is now getting his bottom... many sleepless nights.

And all of this without the help and support of Nathan. I called him last night and told him to forget about taking anymore trips for a long, long time. It didn't go over too well and I was in no mood to debate about it. Honestly, I don't think he realizes how hard it is to deal with a teething child... and a mouse! Why doesn't he get that!????? (Can you tell I'm frustrated?)

On a brighter note, today is my sabbath and I am going to try to get Elon to fall asleep for more than a 45 minute stretch so that I can take a nap. Hope you all have a wonderful day and find sweet rest in the Lord.

Aw, so sorry to hear you're having a rough weekend. I really hope today was a much more restful, relaxed day for you! It IS hard when hubby is away, and we moms have no back-up during tough times. Hang in there!

I want to see a picture of your hair! I haven't dyed mine in years, as my last experience turned it afican violet. Someone must've switched the colors in the boxes, because what I bought was NOT warm maple like the said!
