2017: week eight

sticking with the theme,
it is now brette's turn to get sick.
i guess that's what we're doing this winter:
taking turns being sick.
brette doesn't have what we had though,
she's running a fever and not eating a thing.
she's been drinking water, gatorade and sprite and
that about covers her meals over the last few days.
poor girl.
she's been sleeping a lot too, taking
a nap everyday.
that part is nice.

also sticking with the theme:
in between bouts of sickness, we've been
working on the house.
since ronnie finished the entry way, we 
decided the next and last thing to tackle would
be the back door and bathroom.
we were looking into a new counter-top and tile for the bathroom,
but once i really thought about it, 
i decided that i wanted to rip out the whole
vanity and just have a pedestal sink. 
normally, i'm against pedestal sinks because they
have no counter and no storage, 
but i don't think either are needed in this small half bath.
there are no bedrooms downstairs so i can't see anyone
needing those things on a regular basis.
i plan on putting in a corner shelf so
when we do have a guest use our pullout couch,
they have somewhere to sit their toiletries.
but really only my parents or cale ever spend the night and
my parents monday's with the girls is
coming to an end in a few short months and
lets be honest, cale doesn't pack toiletries.
 this will give us a lot more room to clear the door and
make the bathroom feel bigger.
i'm excited about it. 
i'm sure it will be a total mess before it gets any better,
which will drive me crazy,
but it should be nice in the end.
(pictures to come)
in other news, 
ronnie decided to start by building a mud bench. 
he had cale come up today and they got most
of it hammered out. 
we still have to finish the actual bench seat, 
but the beadboard, the shelf and the trim are up.
it looks SO MUCH BETTER than that stupid desk.
i mean really,
who is going to sit at a desk by the backdoor?
it makes no sense. 
i don't have pictures of all of this and
i'm too lazy to go downstairs right now,
but i promise next week's update will include pictures
of our house projects.
in the mean time, you
can look at the picture i keep showing ronnie and cale
for inspiration.

in other news...
we took the girls to a hockey game last weekend.
it was so much fun.
they did really good and ronnie and i took turns 
running out for bathroom breaks,
beer runs and concession stands buys.
we took two friends with us so we had extra hands, 
which made the whole thing a little more relaxing
than what it could have been.
its nice to get out a do fun stuff and i
finally feel like reid is getting to the age
where more things like this are possible. 
maybe our social life will start looking up???

have a great week!
i'm back to my old work schedule so 
i'm excited to have three days off again.
ps- here's a few pictures of reid from this week,
just because she's cute.
(brette doesn't believe in sitting still or smiling for a camera.)
