Later that afternoon, she and I worked on finishing a project we started, oh, when we were moving in LAST year - the downstairs floor.
It's concrete. We ripped out the carpet as it was nasty in color (blue) and condition (water damage). We knew we didn't want to put carpet down as it's right off the laundry area and with a daylight basement...well, we felt like doing that would be begging for some kind of flood. (We've already had a few so we were right!) Enter concrete stain! GREAT idea and fun...although when we moved in there was a list 5,987,564 items long, I was hugely pregnant, and Alan was leaving for a two week trip to China. Needless to say, we did the essentials and not much more. We almost finished the floor.
Enter a couple of sick big kids, no one available to help me rip out the soffit in the kitchen, Charlotte taking a really long nap, and Natalie and I available to GET IT DONE.
As we were working away, those words I'd allowed out of my mouth that morning came back to me and she and I laughed pretty hard. We don't do Art class......snort. Apparently we're too busy doing BIG, artistic projects, we don't do a 'class'.
