what's been goin on?

hello, hello. i have been so busy and haven't downloaded my latest pictures...they should be fun! pictures of family visiting, which was SO much fun. also snapped a picture of the BEDROOM LAMPS! that's right, the lamp topic has finally run it's course - project completed! so next time i will post that photo. no more lost sleep for you, dear reader, wondering if i would ever find lamps for the bedroom. some older pictures - rafe in the playroom! playroom post should be next after lamps post. lamp post? play room is good, though still hoping to find more cheap storage.

this bedroom photo - just one i saved. hm, might have even posted it previously!
i'm currently feeling a little overwhelmed by the fact that stella might be "one of those people" who can't have wheat/gluten - this is a huge deal for me as i'm big on CARBS. the foods kids like best seem to be full of wheat (pbj, pizza, mac/cheese)... so currently, free mental space is consumed by this topic.
happy living to you,

my current fixation: the long narrow hallway with doors to my room, "powder room," and Rafe's room. it also has 4 doors opening to closets. these doors are a real pet peeve of mine - they are forever left open, and also open of their own volition even when intentionally closed by moi. i do like the paint colors i used in this hallway, but i have ideas, honey, i have ideas....

for one thing, this hallway is pitch black all day unless you turn on a light. i would like to install solatubes (i cringe to leave out the "r" but that's how they spell it); i want to replace these louver type doors with non-louver bypass doors which will never be opening into the traffic space; i want to remove the chair rail and add crown molding, and install thicker moulding around the doors. AND, i would like to wallpaper with a blue/white vertical stripe.
mmmmm, yaaaaaaaa... definitely a very long term goal.
