For the first time, all of the kids went to church camp. I know they're having lots of fun but home just isn't home with their silliness, needs and crises. I'm not good at relaxing without them around. (And, yes, I'm aware that I need to work on that in the next few years!)
To beat feelings of aimlesness, I decided to take on the most daunting house project I could think of -- painting the kitchen cabinets. It's exactly as much fun as I thought it would be. Which is to say...none. But I've wanted them painted for a long time so, this week, my mantra is 'good things come to those who do.'
Hopefully, by the time the kids get home, the living room won't look like the kitchen threw up in it and I can share some pics!
