That's the excuse I'm giving for my current blog abandonment. School is really hard this year and I'm buried to my eyeballs in homework! I have an average of 2-3 hours of homework a night on top of all the normal stuff (like making dinner, laundry, cleaning) so there just hasn't been any time to do anything to the house. Which means nothing to blog about. The only thing I've done is pick a paint color for the bedroom, but I won't be able to actually paint until maybe Thanksgiving.
We do have some things planned though for when I can finally catch a break from school. We're going to be getting a new washer and dryer, tearing out some walls to insulate, and of course painting the bedroom. I decided on Valspar Silver Fox for the walls and Rising Tide for the ceiling. Silver Fox is a pretty blue-gray color (think blue sky with a storm coming in) and Rising tide is a really light grayish blue color that looks great with the main color. We have to get a new washer and dryer because our 15 year old set is quickly dying...3 hours to do one load of laundry is a bit ridiculous! It's taking that long because the washer is having a hard time spinning the water out and the dryer isn't getting hot (high is now almost the same as low). And we are NOT tearing out plaster walls to insulate, we're tearing out the plywood walls in the laundry room.
And I haven't forgotten to post the pictures of the closet transformation...just haven't had time, but I still plan to put them up sometime, probably Thanksgiving break.
