Within the first 24 hours of Phil being gone the boys and I finished our wallpaper project in their bathroom. They both helped a lot, actually!
With how this bathroom looks now (think cheap, yucky hotel) as it waits for the next steps in it's transformation, I decided to put off taking down the wallpaper in the master bath. I couldn't handle the thought of not having any nice looking bathroom to shower in. For now the wallpaper is off in it's entirety and it's good enough for the boys to bathe in. We're waiting to be able to replace the vanity, redo the floors and paint. Maybe I'll paint soon. We'll have to see if I can find our painting tape!
So that's us lately. The days seem to be passing very slowly. I need to be more grateful for this slow time of life. 6 months ago I would have really appreciated having this kind of time with the boys. I'm sure given enough time our schedule will be full and bustling again.
