Okay, I have changed my mind several times about my new curtains. They are very pretty, Mom did a good job. I just can't decide whether to put them in the kitchen or the living room. Help!!! I really think they look better with the tan walls. What about sheers in the middle?

My new kitchen!!

Okay, everybody. I'm not sure about this, but here's pictures of my kitchen. The color on the sample at the store seemed perfect and then when I put it on the walls, I'm not so sure. But, as Ralph says, I'll probably change the color shortly anyways. It's soooo different. I need some honest feedback, please. We'll have our own version of Rate My Space. I still have to hang pictures and accessorize. Now, on to the living room. Mom made my new curtains and they look really nice but I have to paint in there before I hang them. I want the rooms to coordinate together.

It's 4:15 am on Monday, September 15, 2008. I am awake, so thought I would blog. I had 4 days off in a row over the weekend and ended up sick! Ugh!! What a great time to be sick, when I was hoping to get some stuff done around here. I am up because every time I lay down, I start to cough and don't want Ralph to be disturbed. I've had seepy eyes that were matted shut when I woke up yesterday, sorethroat, headache, stuffed nose, cough, you name it and I had it. I lost my voice also. Ralph enjoyed that, I think. Anyhow................I'm on the mend now hopefully. I was supposed to work tonight, but took the night off to recuperate. Now that I've bored you all with my woes, I'll move on to something else.
Mom and Dad were here on Thursday. Mom, Boof(Melanie), and I went shopping, that was fun. Just wish Chris could've been here to go too. I don't remember if I mentioned that we painted our kitchen cabinets a chocolate brown color. It's a drastic change but it's growing on me. It took me several days to decide if I like it or not. I removed all wall stuff to try and figure out how to make it all work. Any how while Mom was here, Boof and her helped me find material for new curtain panels and now I'm very excited about my new plan. I have picked out a new wall color, too. I will try to post pictures when it's done. Can't wait!!! I always get gung-ho in the fall with redecorating my house. Ralph is Thrilled!!! Ha!!!
Ralph is down to his last 8 or 9 weeks of unemployment and we're starting to get nervous. Could you remember us in your prayers about a new job for him. I don't understand why he was offered 6 jobs in North Carolina and none here. Obviously, we couldn't move without selling our house and that didn't seem to be happening. I just don't know.
The boys are already finished with 3 weeks of school. Wow!!! I can't believe I have a high-schooler and a junior high-schooler. What happened to my babies? So far, they are really enjoying their new school building.

Just another post about Bob. He got stung today by a bee or horsefly, I'm not sure what. He looks horrible. It doesn't seem to be bothering him any but man, he was already ugly and now look at him. His better eye is HUGE!!!! I've been giving him Benadryl, I'm not sure what else I can do about it.

Dane's new room!

Dane and I hung a mural in his room tonight. What do you think? I hope he doesn't have bad dreams tonight with a shark above his head. He picked it out. So we'll see.
