So here are a few of the most recent Golding happenings
We have been crazy painting fools around here. Preston even suggested last night, as we were painting with every lamp and lantern in the house so we could see what we were doing, that we should start our own professional painting business - that's how good we've gotten. Not really. I feel like I spend as much time fixing mistakes and doing "touch ups" as I do painting the entire room. Here is the finished spare room... I still need to hang curtains and pictures which I think will make a big difference.
Ethan has fallen in love. Her name is Hayley and he walks around spelling it all the time. H-A-Y-L-E-Y...if you spell it wrong watch out!!
(dressing himself once again)
I drank urine for the first time. That last line sounded completely too happy. I didn't mean that I chose to drink urine for the first time. Let's just say that Tyler had a lot to do with that experience and that it's one I will never forget.
(the man responsible)
Quick Trip is my best friend. I am now a " diet coke- caffeine free- with a shot of vanilla" addict. I want to stop, I try to stop and yet I can't. My car just drives me there...I am going to quit someday - just not today. An addict in her finest form.
Ethan is on his second day of fall break. He is loving his freedom. No uniforms, bedtimes, alarm clocks, and homework!! He's one happy boy. Today, with the freedom to pick his own outfit, he chose ratty, five sizes too small, faded sweat pants. There's a man in the making!
(Yes that is a piece of bread he is eating...strange kid)
OK well there you go. An update. It's got a little bit of everything for you, addiction, freedom, danger( I'd call Tyler's urine dangerous), foreign lands, love, and interior design. Oh wait I didn't give you the foreign lands part. We're going to Mexico. Before you go getting all excited and envious, let me just say we live 3 hours from Mexico and we are driving and we'll be sharing a condo with some friends. Don't get me wrong it will be SPECTACULAR but...I don't want you to get the wrong idea...it would be the same as someone in my home state of Illinois going to Missouri. Doesn't sound so spectacular when you say, "I'm driving to Missouri." Just putting it in perspective for ya folks!
