I actually COMPLETED a project!!!! I started and finished recovering these in 2 1/2 hours!
We have had them for about 7 months and they were stained beyond stained! So, they have been off-white and stain colors: including, but not limited to rootbeer, crayon, milk, juice, RED crystal light, PURPLE crystal light (why a mother would let her kids drink things those colors is beyond me! She must not be very bright. *sigh*), mud, etc.
Actually, the 2nd day we had them Emma ripped the plastic (on purpose) temporarily left on the cushions and spilled rootbeer precisely into the tear (on accident). Both types of actions REGULAR occurances. UGH!!
One friend made the comment to her husband, "Yeah, if you heard some of the stories about Emma, you would feel much better about the accidents that happen at our house."
And this time they have THICK plastic covering them! I guess we'll see how long they withstand Emma! But, I like them for now!
Hmm. I will look on the bright side. Emma gives me the chance to change things up at our house.
Many of you think I am just an unorganized person! But oohhh there is so much more to it than that. It takes a lot of time and effort to be so proficient at procrastination. For instance, do you think I could get the timing of my child running out late to the bus every morning if I gave just a small effort at it? No! Everyone else's kids are waiting at the bus stop up to 10 minutes before the bus is scheduled to be there. That doesn't take any effort! And it uses up valuable time. HA! It takes a great deal of timing to get my child out the door at precisely the moment the rest of the kids have finished boarding. The bus is not here at exactly the same time everyday! Duh!
I have friends who make me look bad. They are crafty, motivated, energetic and full of good ideas. They constantly have FINISHED projects-something I don't even know the definition of. I think it was a great day if I got the kids dressed! So, this blog is my attempt at reverse psychology to motivate myself - or in case that fails it is a good way to gripe at them for making me look bad!
