But you're in luck! I bring you: Updates About Things You Didn't Know You Cared About!
First off, night-weaning. Do you remember when that started? I sure do...'cuz it was my birthday.
How's that going? I'm glad you asked! It's going...decently. It was going great for a couple weeks. Then Little Spaghetti got sick, and I
Don't get me started on the sleeping, though. The chronicles continue...
Next up: My husband's inability to put dishes in the sink. Or the dishwasher. I know you're DYING to know if my lovely note worked. The answer is yes...for the most part. There are still bad days, but for the most part, he now gets the dishes at least into the sink.
It wasn't going that well until one day when one of "the guys" was coming over to help him do some work in the yard. He made me put the note away so as not to embarrass him, and I think it was the guilt that did him in. After that, he was much better about it.

I LOVE having my morning tea at this table.
I've got a thing for birdcages lately.
I reupholstered this chair all by myself. Not to shabby for an amateur.
I've got a couple herb gardens in the windows.
The color - soothing green tea - was feeling a little bold as we put it up on the walls, but now that all the furniture is in, I can't imagine a better color. Seriously, one of my favorite rooms in the house!
And, for the sake of full disclosure, here's the pile of crap I had to move out of that room to photograph it. I wish it looked more like a room in a decorating magazine all the time...
