Good morning Ladies!! How has your week been ? We have had some lovely spring weather this week. There was sunshine everyday except for yesterday where it was overcast and rainy, but we need them days also!
On Saturday early there was a bunch of chores that I attended to at home. Then in the afternoon we started a back burner project , ceiling painting !! There was prep to do before any paint was applied , the walls had to be protected with plastic and the floor somewhat. We are getting new carpet on the floors so they don’t need too much covering. We used a roller with a long handle , it is harder than I thought painting over your head ! We got one room completed and are going to tackle more today. Wish me luck!
For early Mothers day there was breakfast in bed and a new sterling silver heart chain gifted!! Then we went to church for 10:30 am , it is good to be back in person! In the afternoon we surprised the kids with a waterpark stay Sunday into Monday! We found a discounted coupon for a family of 6 and jumped at the chance! It is the great wolf lodge waterpark, we have been there a few times previously. They were so excited and there was some hurried packing done ! When we got there it was a relaxed atmosphere with a smaller capacity of people. We ordered pizza for dinner and they slept soundly that night! On Monday morning they did a little more swimming, tubing, watersliding before it was time to check out .
Tuesday was back to normal With school, and evening sports. The younger kids had pajama day at school Wednesday which was fun !
New house update : I told you were are due to move into a new house in August, September. Last week we got the permit approved . Then on Monday evening we received information that the builder is backing out of the contract to build. Long story short is they cannot afford to build the house at the agreed price we reached a few months back. The building trade costs are at an all time high, 300% higher than a year ago due to the pandemic. There were a range of emotions when we got the news ( as you can imagine !) But we are getting used to the fact that we most likely will not be building now. The only chance we have is when they come back with a revised price , and we will see if its worth it to pay that extra. Otherwise we will be looking at existing homes to purchase.
Last night just for fun the two of us did actually take a look at a few existing home through our realtor friend Mike. They were nice but did not fully meet our needs. Afterwards we had a little date night at a local bar restaurant called the crooked pint . It was nice to get couple time, the joys of having a teenage babysitter!
Today we will tackle some more house projects !

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend, Terri xo.

Hi Terri! I’m glad you enjoyed Mother’s Day and received a new sterling silver heart chain, and had a fun family time at the Great Wolf Lodge Waterpark. That’s disappointing news about the new house, but I hope you will find an existing house to suit your needs, in case it doesn’t work out. Date night is awlways great, especially when you have a built-in baby-sitter. 🙂
The floral dress is very pretty. 10
It was a nice Mothers day Carmen! The chain is beautiful, and there was a lot of fun at the Great wolf lodge! Yes we officially have piulled the plug on the new house but i have new updates in my blog this weekend !! Getting the chance to dress up is nice for a date night! It is nice having the babysitter advantage, but the kids are all pretty good. Usually good I must stress! It is a pretty dress for summer, I will see if its in the budget! Thanks for visiting Carmen , happy Thursday, Terri xo.
