We start school today. Boo. I’m not quite ready for summer to be over.
I finished Lisey’s room! I just need to take some photos and then I can show you what I’ve been up to.
It looks a whole lot better in there now (I kind of want to move in.), and I didn’t spend very much money at all. That’s always a lovely combo…big improvement, small price tag.
Remember the glass straws that I bought for our family? Well, there’s a Living Social deal running right now where you can get a $20 Strawesome voucher for $10.
I bought two vouchers for my family because we finally had a straw casualty here.
(Which involved a certain smallish person in the family leaving her cup on the edge of the table. Ahem.)
She was so, so sad over her broken straw, and I’m hopeful that this will help her to remember that drinks go up at the top of the plate, toward the middle of the table.
Also, when I replace her straw, I’m going to get her the shorter smoothie straw so that it’s not quite so likely to fall out of her smoothie mug (I wasn’t thinking when I ordered our original straws…I drink my smoothies out of a taller glass, but the kids usually have shorter ones.)
Actually, since I now have $40 of credit to spend at Strawesome, I’ll probably get shorter straws for all four kids (I just saw that I can get a set of four for a discounted price. Yay!)
I can’t even believe I’m saying this, but we’re buying a loft bed for Joshua, and, um, it’s gonna need to be painted. Oof.
He needs a little more space in his room, and we’ve been thinking for a while that a loft bed would be perfect. A used one popped up that fits perfectly in his space, so we’re going to buy it.
However, I am really tired of painting right now so this bed may sit, unassembled, in our laundry room for a month or so while I wait for my painting mojo to come back.
