well, it has only been a couple days since G went off to spend the summer with his dad, and though it has been quieter, i still miss him. i know he will have fun though and that is important. i hope to get working on the kids rooms soon so that they are in order by the time he returns. my plan is to get matching captains beds for the boys and a nice girly bed for M.

the bed i found for the boys room

i think that will work nicely since they will be sharing a room for a bit... the drawers underneath will take away the need for a separate dresser for a while (maybe for a long while). i haven't totally decided for M... there is a cute sleigh bed with a flower in the headboard and flower shaped knobs on the dresser at the same place... but i was also thinking we could go with a daybed and trundle in her room so when she is old enough to have a sleepover there will be a place for her little friend to sleep. this was kind of my intention with the bunk bed set that G has now... but after having to move that thing 2 times and the fact that is takes up an insane amount of room... i think i will never do the bunk bed thing again.

in doing all of this i will have to venture into the world of selling stuff either online or via garage sale in order to rid myself of their current bedroom furniture. i am sure this will be a stressful event for me as i have little patience for such things. on the other hand... i guess if i cant sell them, i can always call the folks that take donations and give them away. either way, it will be a task that i am not looking forward to.

i hope all the mother's out there had a wonderful day on sunday... i was stuck at work. boo hoo. but i did get to spend all day friday with G... we went out to lunch and skating with grandma and grandpa. M & CJ also got to skate a bit.. i think i will take them to a few classes this summer since they seemed to have fun. i also got to enjoy a lovely dinner with M & CJ after we took G to the airport on saturday.

I am bummed we won't get to see G when we come down, when is he due back? I like the bed you picked for the boys, very nice looking and the storage looks great! I am partial to the daybed for M, mostly because that is what I had (actually, I still have it) growing up. I would definately recommend craigslist for selling, because you can put a picture and set a price/ask for best offer and tell people up front that they need to haul it away. Less hastle and you should get some money for your stuff that you can then put towards the new stuff :) Anyway, we are excited to see everyone in a week and a half!

i think i will try craigslist and see how it goes. the problem is that i need to get it all ready and actually take a pic before i can do that... and that takes time & effort. G will be back the end of july, so he will be out for a while. i think i like the daybed idea also, and the one i saw at the store was really cute.
