After two very hectic weeks I think I've found some time to post. Thanksgiving was a nice break from the regular responsibilities of life, but for some reason I found myself unreasonably productive. On Christmas Eve last year we purchased a beautiful wood island for our kitchen on an amazing deal from the Home Depot. The one catch was that it needed to be finished, but we were in such a hurry to put it together before our company arrived on Christmas Day that we never bothered to finish it. Now, 10 months later, we'd finally had enough.
On yet another wandering trip to the Home Depot we passed through the paint and stain aisle and found our perfect colour for the island! So, on Sunday afternoon and moved al our furniture out of the way in the living room, covered the floors with cardboard and started finishing our island. Somehow I managed to get it done between Sunday evening and the next morning, and even got the house put back together so we could have some friends over for "Anti-Thanksgiving". Basically, pizza, beer and tv instead of a turkey. Waaay less work. Lots of fun!
I also worked 20 extra hours this week. I was asked to work tech at a Promise Keepers rally our church was hosting. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about Promise Keepers and working for them, but it turned out to be pretty fun. I met some great people, and I certainly got paid well to run the computer all weekend.
Needless to say, I'm now exhausted.
By the way, the picture above is Hubby getting geared up for the Montreal - Boston game. He's so cute in his jersey, and so excited to see his Habs lay the smack down the on the Bruins. He's holding the mug I made him at FireEscape in the summer too. Think he's much of a fan? He even bought me some awesome Montreal socks! Isn't he adorable? I do love him so.
