Warning: Completely Random Thoughts with a little of school, home decor, and real life

I could really use a "Sunday Smorgasboard" linky today.  I really want to blog but my mind is a bit crazy and I haven't done anything really school related all week except actually going to school.  

On Monday, I went to say hello to everyone at school and scope out my room for next year.  I'll be staying in the same room so it will be nice not to have to wait for all of my stuff to be moved.  The floor wax LITERALLY stopped AT my door's threshold.  The hallway outside my door was waxed.  The classroom inside my door was not.  Since I can't touch anything until they finish, I figured I would take my before pictures and dream about what I want my room to look like this year.

Yes, this is what it looks like right now.  An island of tables, chairs, and boxes.....  Oh yeah, see that purple circle?  That's  a new bookshelf!!!  I now have 4!!  Not sure how I got that lucky but somehow I keep getting new ones.  AND NO, I didn't steal anyone's.  The janitor (sweet guy) was very proud and came to show me that he had given me a new bookcase! lol...

More of my "junk".......bare bare walls......oh boy, do I have a lot of work to do.....

Whew, excuse my kidney table is at the bottom left.  More of my junk in this picture with a view of the back corner.  My other "full" bookcase is right under my finger.  That makes two tall bookcases and two short ones.  I really need to figure out where to put them.

So since I couldn't get rid of my energy by working in my classroom at school, I decided to tackle a remodel project in my office at home.  We just purchased our home after renting it for two years so we are finally able to redo it and make it our own!  

My poor husband left on Monday morning thinking that everything was normal and all was well in the world.  He came home to stuff all over our bedroom and living room with the carpet and padding pulled out of this room.  He was a WEE bit shocked to say the least.  After the shock wore off (I even moved a 6 foot tall hutch by myself), he was happy that it was done and he didn't have to worry about it.  

The before pics.....I really didn't like the pepto bismol pink on the walls.  I'm not a "pink girl" to begin with but this was too much!

It looks different depending on which light you are standing or peach??  Either way, it's now gone!

After my husband climbed over numerous piles in the living room and bedroom, this is what he saw.   

More of the end of day 1 pics.....

I painted the first coat of new paint yesterday and LOVE it but yesterday was a disaster so I have no pics of that. In the middle of painting, our pup got loose and got hit by a car.  He survived but ran away for about 6 hours.  We thought he had died because we could not find him and he would not answer our call.  

After spending a couple hours looking for our dog, my oldest started complaining of not feeling well.  He's not one to complain so I knew something was really wrong.  Yep, fever and all so off to Urgent Care we went.  

My boy is 5 feet tall at 11 years old.  He's going to pass me up in NO time.  This makes me sad!  Look at those feet people!!  He's going to be a big'un!!   lol.....

Hubby texted me while at Urgent Care that our pup returned home and looked fine.  I was so excited!!!  When I got home from Urgent Care, I took the pup to the Emergency Vet clinic.  HELLO DOLLAR SIGNS!!!  Geez louise!!  They think he will be fine and that he didn't even break a bone!  We have to watch him for three days to make sure nothing inside is "leaking"....yuck!

I took this picture at about 2:30 a.m. this morning on one of my many scheduled wake-ups to check on the dog and my older boy.  The dog was actually sleeping on the side that got hit so that he could rub his nose on my youngest son's face.  It was so sweet!!!

Well that's all I have for today!  I wish I could tell you that I had these great new products or that my classroom was ready but that's not the case......for today at least!

Have a great rest of Wednesday!! See you tomorrow!
