8 days off

Today was the last day of our current homestand at work. Then next homestand is 10 days long, starting on a week from tomorrow. However, I have Monday, Wednesday and Saturday off. So I have 8 days off in a row.
On one hand, I am looking forward to it. On the other hand, I have a feeling that I am going to get bored out of my mind. I am going to try to use that time to get a few things straightened out here around the apartment.

~ I only have one room "finished" in the entire apartment, the guest bathroom which is also known as Trevor's "man bathroom". This is the bathroom that Trevor wanted to make a pirate bathroom but ended up turning into a Nautical themed bathroom. I like the way it turned out. Keep watching for pictures in the next couple of days.

~ I absolutely love the work of Thomas Kinkade. Seeing as how it will be a very long time, if ever, that I can actually affort one of his paintings, I have been putting together and glueing some puzzles of his paintings. I have 3 done so far and I have 5 or so left to complete. I am not sure where I am going to hang them or what I am going to do with them... But I can guarantee you that they will be used to fill up some wall space. I HATE white walls. Period. And, of course, living in an apartment we have nothing but white walls. I am sure I will put them to use somewhere. :)

~ I need to find some piece to a twin size bed frame in order to get the guest bedroom in order. My friend, Brooke, is coming in 3 weeks to stay with us and I WILL have it all in order by then. Somehow in the move, we lost two of the four brackets that connect the bed springs/frame to the head board and foot board. I am going to hunt around at some thrift stores to try and find the pieces that we need.

~ I need to make a shower curtain for the master bathroom or try an find one.I want a lovely adult bathroom. :) I want something that incorporates certain colors but I don't want a pattern that is really busy. And seeing as how the bathroom is small (way smaller than the guest bathroom, I need to find something that is going to make the room look larger... not something that will make it look smaller and "swollow" the whole room.

~ I have several Disney postcards that are replicas of some of the famous Disney paintings. I want them to go on the wall around my desk but I am not sure if I am going to frame them or find something else to do with them. I have a castle painting that is going to be hung on the wall and I want the photos to be arranged around the painting. Any suggestions?

~ I think I might go to Hobby Lobby tomorrow. I just LOVE Hobby Lobby. :)

I will be posting pictures and updates of what I get accomplished. Maybe that will motivate me to get everything done quickly. :o)

I went to Hobby Lobby today--spent way too much! You'll probably never see a Hobby Lobby "Show and Tell" on my Mommy Managing blog because I always go over budget there! LOL!

I responded to your question, too!
