i've been busy

Painted my living room.
Painted my bathroom.
Hung up lots of pictures.
Got new curtains for the living room.
It's really starting to look like we live here.
Cool-io.

And my shaw digital phone isn't working.
As in we have no phone.
The internet works fine.... but no dial tone.
And I've checked all the plug ins already about four times.
I was going to call my mom tonight.... but I can't.
I was going to return the message from yesterday... but I can't.
I was going to call shaw to get my phone working.... but I can't.

As for the blog....
I wanna know who is reading this thing.
Let me know.
Someone asked me and I have no idea.
Pretty please.
Even just leave your name.

Even those cousins or brother in laws who I know read it.

Come on, you can do it.

**Edited to add some pictures.**
The kitchen.
It used to be orange. Like HELLO orange. Pumpkin orange.
Which Alden told me was "beautiful"
I didn't agree.












This is my new fruit bowl I got. It's made in Italy. Doesn't that make me sound fancy. Even though I'm not at all. :)


















I did the whole backsplash in these tile thingies. It was orange too. Blech.













In the short hallway between the LR and kitchen is my fav picture my sister Kelly did.












The living room. It is robin's egg blue.































Hopefully we will be getting the new-to-us couches soon.
They are dark blue leather. coolio.













The colors are off, but my momma got me this cool sign I love.
And it totally matches my living room. :)












The bathroom. This picture has the closest color.
But really all of them are off! It's brighter!





























My light house I love.

As fate would have it I tried to call you tonight to see what was going on with the blog. The one time I was going to call you in 6 years your phone is broken. What are the chance?

No wonder I couldn't get ahold of you. So funny that probably everyone you know was trying to call you. I can't wait to see your place all painted and decorated. I know I say I'll come soon, but one of these days I really will and then it will be a nice shocking suprise.

I read your stuff faithfully, my dear! Yes - I want to see pictures of your place too. And too bad about the phone - good luck with the "fixing the problem" thing.

I love the brown you painted and so nice to have a peice of Nova Scotia with you in your bathroom (the lighthouse).

Glad your phone is fixed now.

I read your blog...stumbled across it...hmmm...can't even remember how! I *think* I remember you from a few years ago...did you participate on the Gilded Lilee message boards? I think so and I remember because your son is around the same age as my little guy Max. At that time I lived in Ontario but have since relocated to the westcoast. I enjoy reading your blog and seeing the cute pics of your kiddo's! Awesome choices on your paint colours...love them especially your kitchen! ...Patti
