How I Avoid My Regular Life

Ever feel like you are continuously doing the same things over and over? Some days I feel like I just might jump out the window if I have to bend over and pick up one. more. thing. If you're a mom, you know what I'm sayin'.

To break up my regular life madness, I work on projects. I created these wood blocks for the playroom wall. I bought pre-cut wood from Hobby Lobby and painted them. I printed my letters on scrapbook paper and then modge podged them together.
Years ago Addie started saying, 'love you lots so many'. She would say it so fast that it all kind of mushed together into one word. It sounded more like 'loveyoulotssomany'. Now we all say it. Mostly Addie, but we all blurt it out here and there. Again, I bought the wood at Hobby Lobby, painted it with leftover paint from another project, antiqued the edges and then used my stamps I found on clearance. I'm lovin' it so lots and so many.
I'm not quite sure what I'll tackle next. I've got a few project ideas running through my head, I just need it to be quiet around here long enough for me to pull them together. According to my calculations, that should happen in exactly 1 week. When school and heaven begin.
