Plugging right along
Dad got the closets done in the basement room.
I think they look amazing!!!! Hub and I are both VERY happy with them.
Thanks again Dad!!!
Got the mudding done – hate that job!! – and the primmer is complete.
We headed to Rona (shocker we are always there – LOL ) and spent 97 bucks on paint, rollers and a small donation to Rona's Haiti fund they have in conjunction with Red Cross. Sad but I cant afford to give more than that. I can probably come up with clothing that Lill'Miss has grown out off that I can drop off somewhere. Hmm Have to look into that.
I picked up the sheet of info on the home reno tax. I have been keeping track of every penny we spent and was a little depressed to discover that our fancy new freezer is not exempt. Sigh. Oh well I will not complain – we love that freezer big time!!
I spent tons on the organization of that freezer. Hehehe. I have a basket container fetish I will admit. Lol. I wonder if I could write those containers off as part of the basement reno. Hmmm Will have to look into that. Hehee. Ya I am sure I cant.
So yesterday Lill'Miss and I headed out to Staples to grab some paper and a calendar for her bedroom. Well that turned into an interesting parenting moment!
Staples had a display of those dang Olympic mascot stuffies up. WELL AUGH! She desperately wanted Miga.
She said PLEASE mommy PLEASE.
I said no, it is too expensive ($20 for a little one!) and your birthday is coming up so maybe you can ask grandma or grandpa for it but I am not going to get it for you right now.
You would have thought the world was about to come to an end because of this stupid bearish looking thing. I continued to go ahead and pay for what we went there for while she had a full blown 4 year old melt down. The teller looked to be about 17 years old and I think I definitely put a halt to her biological clock for a while as she witnessed Lill' Devil Miss's temper tantrum. I just kept saying, No ask grandma or grandpa nicely. She kept yelling back at me STOP SAYING THAT I want it now.
Too bad kid!!
After strapping her into her car seat and her kicking the crap out of the back of my seat for a few seconds she went into silent mode.
She has started to figure out when she has lost and just gives up.
