I'm back. But I'm NOT happy about it.

Back to work, and it SUCKS!
I was home with Lincoln the beginning of the week, and it was awesome. I'm seriously jealous of stay at home moms. I know that there are people that are all "I could never not work. I would get so bored!" Not me. I can find plenty to do.
Such as, paint my kitchen cabinets. Which I did. I got this crazy idea in my head on Sunday that my kitchen needed to be remodeled. And figured, what the hell, I'm off work the next 3 days, screw relaxing, I'll demolish my house instead!
Before:
So gross. And messy. Someone should really clean this house!
This was the worst. Luckily we have an empty room in our house where I could spread everything out to paint!

After:
I love how it turned out! I even spray painted all the hardware, and actually like it now!
I'm the shit.

We still have the new floor to put down, and the walls to paint. I can't wait to see how it all looks, and will post some finished product pics when I finish up.

Even with all the manual labor I did, I still made time to hang out with the dude. We had Burger King. He got a crown. He has barely taken it off since.

I'm back to work in about a month and have mixed feelings about it. I've gotten pretty comfy with the mat leave routine.

Your time management skills and motivation exceed mine. I don't think I've ever thought "let's remodel my kitchen" when I have a few spare days ahead of me.

It looks great.
