…To quote Shaggy from Scooby Doo. It’s been almost a full week since I last posted. I swore that wasn’t going to happen with this blog. Whoops! Sorry!

Last week we decided that the house we have been in for almost 10 years needs some sprucing up. We’ve known this for years, but decided now is the time to actually jump in and start upgrading. With several friends moving, we realized that we would have to make the changes if we ever wanted to sell, so why not enjoy them ourselves. Most of the houses in our neighborhood are over 25 years old, and several other women on our street are feeling the same way. I’m looking forward to seeing the neighborhood rejuvinated a little, and even more excited about seeing our house’s transformations.

What does that mean? A few more trips to IKEA for starters. 😉 We are going again tonight to pick up a couple more items the kids were too cranky to spend time finding last week. That trip was a riot-a total comedy of errors involving two adults, two children, two regular carts and a push trolley. You do the math. Doesn’t add up, does it?

Here’s a photo from last week’s trip.  Those baskets were not very cart-friendly!   Mom ended up pushing the cart with the baby and pulling the other one behind her. I pushed the trolley cart. We looked utterly ridiculous, but had some great laughs along the way.

Have a great day!

    Well, if you’d have taken me with you, I’d have pushed a cart! Seriously, I love Ikea, so why don’t I go every now and then? I think it’s been 20 years . . . . . . . .

    So, pictures! We need pictures!
