Naps are hard





So, my update on Cole... he doesn't like to nap. He's a great sleeper at night- like 10-11 hours! However, during the day, he fights it and fights it. Any suggestions would be helpful. I mention this, cause he's in his room crying right now, cause he's so tired and doesn't want to sleep.
---Anyways---
onto other news. here are a few pictures of our house. Our bathroom looks awesome. You can't tell in the picture, but it looks really great. We also got a new shower head! I'm in love with taking a shower now. :)
Our sun room is totally torn up and Caleb is getting it cleaned up this weekend. The electrician and our contractor are coming on Tuesday to get things all planned out. We're getting those French doors with the blinds in them! I'm so excited!!

Fork Stuck

I'm so frustrated. It seems like every time I ask a certain person in my life for help-- or explain that I need something more from him, he turns it around on me and I become the person who can't do things on my own. He just wants to "empower" me to get things done with out help..... ARG I don't know what to do. I stuck. I need help from him and he won't help me. I get this response from him often, and sometimes I can deal with it and just become independent and do things on my own, and sometimes I freak out to get his attention (which I do). Neither is healthy. Neither is who I am or want to be. I want to need his help. How do I want to need his help when he doesn't want to help me? Is that healthy? Like I said, I'm stuck. I'm hurt. I'm frustrated. And suggestions?

Dumpster in the front yard


We have a dumpster in the front yard. It's not white trash at all.
We're finally starting our sun room remodel! :)

We have been painting and painting our bathroom for the last 2 weeks! I woke up one morning and decided that we needed to paint it-- the walls were starting to peel! So, Caleb and I went to Home Depot and picked out some really nice paint have been painting ever since... arg. It takes a long time to paint a bathroom "right" as Caleb would say and insist we do! We had to wash the walls, sand the walls, paint with primer that kills any unseen mold, paint the walls with 2 coats of paint, paint the trim with 2 coats of paint and caulk... and do all of that to the cabinet doors too. We've got almost all of that done. I'll post a picture when I've got the pictures hanging back on the walls and everything put away.

Lets just say that starting a painting project right before we left for 5 days wasn't the smartest of my plans! It's almost done though and then onto the next project! Our sun room!

have a great day all.

We went to Chicago the good old Windy City and I thought you would like to see some of the pictures from our trip. We had a great time visiting Caleb's family! Cole did great flying and is now struggling to get back onto a schedule... life is interesting and lots of fun.
