The past week was busy. I have been taking extra jobs whenever available. Friday was a meeting after the morning runs, then I needed to have a meeting with the operations manager, then the afternoon runs. When I returned I said I would help get my bus and another ready for a charter trip over the weekend. Everyone who was taking a bus was supposed to bring it up to help get them ready. Let's just say that no one came to help, and by the time I got all 5 buses prepared it was almost 9pm.
Saturday DH started mixing up the primer to prime the ceiling. Something did not seem right. We discovered we bought enamel/oil based primer, instead of the regular latex primer. I cut into the corners and DH did the rolling or the ceiling so it was all primed after we had removed the popcorn texture and fixed some problems with the ceiling. After we were finished we cleaned up and were out the door. Feed store, Joann's to pick up some fabric and ribbon, to Toys R Us to find a toy for Finn for his birthday, and to the home improvement store for a new angled brush to cut in the ceiling paint, and finish painting the wall. Let's just say not much sewing was accomplished and the house smelled horrendous because of the oil based primer, and it was too cold to open up the windows to air the house out. Oh and DH and I are too old to go to Toys R Us without a minor in tow! It was overwhelming so we actually ended up leaving and going to a different store because there was too much that we actually felt like we had sensory overload.
Sunday morning I had a charter at 5 am. I was home by 9 am which was nice. DH had already finished painting the ceiling so it was my turn to paint the final wall in the dining room. I cut in along the moulding around the windows and floor and the ceiling. He rolled. We are a great team.
Sunday afternoon was Finn's birthday party. Yes we did find a gift for him, which he absolutely adored. Not long after we left his house my daughter called that Finn had fallen. Now about 2 weeks ago he had tumbled off of the bunk beds and sprained his ankle. He wouldn't walk for over a week, and he was still limping.
The youngest daughter took him to emergency and poor little guy! He broke his leg.
Monday- We do not have flooring in the family room, so we are going to move everything out and at least get OSB down so that the levels match, and we will then move the dining room table, and my quilting machine in here so that I can use it easier than when it is in the sun room.
A bit of embroidery and learning how to use the couching stitch on my sewing machine. I was surprised at how much I accomplished in just a couple of hours. My only problem was that I lost my Roxanne's glue baste, and Joann's didn't have any. I keep hearing how if you use a bottle with a fine tip and some Elmer's school glue it works the same way, so I purchased it.
How was your weekend? Did it seem crazy busy too?
