"Homemaker" takes on more depth...

It's a juggeling act to get folded laundry, hot meals, cleaned rooms and happy kids on a regular basis.  Throw in some more work on our house projects and you get MADNESS!  Ignore any mess you see in the pictures, it's only there semi-permanently as we get things ripped up, torn out, painted over, and reworked.  THEN life can calm down and I can complain about hum-drum laundry and meals :) 
In spite of Joe being sick pretty much all week (he took TWO sick days! Unheard of!) we still made lots of progress. Carpet in Caroline's room and our bedroom removed, starting to paint the trim.

Ripped-out wood paneling got a new layer of drywall.  One sheet of drywall gave in to headwinds on the ride home and broke in half in front of the tie-down straps!  These projects continue to be an adventure...

Now it needs to be textured and painted.  Old wood paneling got a coat (or three) of white paint.

Like the color we're considering for the top half?  We'll do the same thing on the other side of the fireplace, plus pull the blue onto the other wall, which is currently a much darker blue.  Ain't no thang.

New smoke detectors installed.

New light fixture up in the hall.

You know, other than that we're not too busy :)

Looking great! I love the painted paneling and I think the blue paint would look great. Blue is supposed to be a great color for kitchens. Can't wait to see it all in person once it's done! :)
