around here & thrifted

Thank you for all of your comments about the last post, I'm glad to hear that this weighs heavy on the hearts of others as well.

I mentioned that I was doing some painting last week and I'm happy to say that we're done, for now. Our bedroom used to be a fog grey, we wanted something a little ashy and got blue instead. Anyways, it's much better in white and the amount of light we've gained is kind of impressive. We also bought a new bed which I put together last week. I'll have to get together proper photos but for now you can see some of my recent thrift finds.
I found this, very tarnished silver lotus bowl for $.80 and have removed some of the tarnishing but not all yet. I also found the large yellow and brown vessel and album covers. Jeremiah loves bright colors and we both find these vintage album covers comical so it just seemed to fit in our room.

In other news, I tackled the 5 loads of laundry I had been putting off since Sat night. I have this love/hate relationship with laundry. I hate seeing piles of clothes in the sorter but I hate washing even more. I also hate folding but love to see the drawers and closets full of neatly stacked clothes. Also hate that if I don't take care of it, ain't nobody else will!

I'm taking Israel in to the doctor tomorrow, nothing major but just some lingering questions about his sinuses that have been bothering me for too long. It's not easy being a parent, I'm sure it's not the last time I'll say that, but not all decisions are easy to make. Finding clothes that fit him or choosing healthy meals, easy. Knowing when an issue is worth going to the doctor for, hard.
Well for me anyways.
