I was spoiled this morning because the girls slept in until 9am. The renovations have been tough on everyone. Yesterday Vanessa had her first nap since a couple of weeks. It was a great surprise during her quiet time. We had gone to the JazzFest to meet Julie and Laura for lunch. We watched a fun Jazz class performance. We would have liked to check the outdoor stuff but it was cold and wet and the only one with a raincoat was Vanessa soooo next time. We had lots of fun with lunch but I think the girls liked the fountain the best.
On the renovation front, we moved back into our bedroom and slept in our bed for the first time in over two week. It was heavenly. The bedroom is not done and the closet needs a little more work but we'll focus on the bathroom and finish the bedroom later. The closet is Huge! Lots of extra storage and maybe Eric can get dressed in there in the morning. It’s still got a lot of tools and some of our clothing is still in Vanessa’s room but one day it will be done!
Last night my mom, dad and Eric grouted the tiles around the bathtub. It cleaned it up nicely. Any possible imperfections disappeared with the white grout on the white tile. The blue glass stripes stand out beautifully. Eric is very proud and grateful at the same time. Next we’ll be plaster, sanding and painting. Oh and some caulking. We should be able to use it by the end of the summer… hehehe.
Potty training is still in progress. We have good days and bad days. The most dramatic accident was Vanessa peeing in the stairs creating a waterfall. I asked her to stop but she said she didn’t know how. Sigh. She’s getting there. It’s nice to be able to hop in the pool without changing diapers.
We’re all out of time so I’ll see you later.
