Patrick made a tire swing for the kids today. There is an area of the yard where they tend to hang out. There is the above hammock, a hammock with a stand and now a tire swing.

The weather is SO gorgeous that we have had the windows all open for days. Patrick and I went and sat in the hammock together this afternoon for a while... it was blissful.

This morning the dogs fell asleep like this:

Today has been a lazy day. Patrick had the day off and we stayed in bed until 11:30. Having the kids doing Epic school online is awesome, btw.

Then I finished a book by Karin Slaughter that I just couldn't put down. I like her books, her style of writing and I love the suspense and the "real" characters that I can relate to. I've never read characters that seem as real and as deep... in a way that I can relate to. I've read "deep" characters, but they were always the type that I had no frame of reference for, which is good, but this kind of makes me feel less... less, 'odd'.

Anyway, we're probably going to the cheap theater tonight to see Total Recall with the boys as the girls are at a sleepover.

Tomorrow we visit the children's hospital with Bean again.

The House.

The loan approval process has made it to the appraisal process. I have no fears about that. I'm still ASTOUNDED that we found a 1,600 sq ft house within walking distance of the Sr. High on a half an acre of land for under $110k. I'm not at all worried that it will appraise too low.

It looks like this is really happening... I am trying to NOT get too excited and keep myself on an even keel, but I have a feeling that I am going to sleep through the month of August from just the sheer exhaustion of all the adrenaline spikes from these three months!

I was really struggling to come up with a color scheme until I realized that I am finally decorating a BIG open well lit space, so for once I don't have to plan around making rooms look bigger! I'm going with more jewel tones this time and I am SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!

We have decided on our color schemes and have fabulous plans for decorating. I can barely wait to get started:) As a matter of fact, once the girls leave for Iowa, I am going to have Patrick help me build some big canvases, go buy the paint that I want for the living room, den and kitchen, and I am going to do some paintings for the entry and hallway that tie those four - five colors together!

I'm going to start gathering my definite colors to this board here if you're curious:
