I had to count to see how old I'm going to be!

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good :)

The bookshelves are in the house!! They are only partially screwed into the wall, but I'll take it! We spent all day Saturday painting them with my paint sprayer!!! Remember when I bought that thing, oh, I don't know...like 6 months ago?! Well this weekend was my first time to use it and it worked like a dream!! I don't even want to think about how long those things would have taken to paint if I hadn't had that! The only thing is, well, I'm kind of kicking myself for using plywood. When we were looking, I was like, Oh, here's MDF, they use that stuff all the time on HGTV :) But for some reason we decided to use plywood and just face it with 1x2's. I figured that all of the knots and imperfections would either 1) sand out or 2) be camouflaged by the paint. WRONG-O!! The paint actually accentuates the flaws!! Lovely. Ultra white semi-gloss, I should have known. But you know, there's really nothing we can do about it now. So, once they are secured to the wall, my meticulous filling and touching up will commence. Perhaps I will be able to show you a finished product in about 6 months :)

Oh, I wanted to tell you that Zoe started her 'roids last week and within about 24 hours of the first dose, she was cured!! One million times better! Lee thinks she's put on some muscle ;) And Isabelle took her last dose of this de-worming medicine. Now we're supposed to take her off of all of her medicine and if she still continues vomiting, then she has to have a scope put down her stomach and the (new) doc thinks that they will either 1) find a foreign object in there and be able to remove it, or 2) take a biopsy, which is the very last thing to do. I'm pretty sure we'll wind up doing to scope thing, but we'll just wait and see.

I think I'm cutting my hair. Only like 2 inches, but still, I never though that I would cut it once I had finally been able to grow it out! It's currently halfway down my back, which is the longest it has been since high school! But I want to be able to curl it and do fun stuff with it, and right now I just feel like it is flat and stringy! I'm going on Friday.

My birthday is in 16 days :)
