7/26/11 Are We There Yet?

Working through my 'to do' list before vacation...

Three down...
   - Pen and ink gift made and framed (I was asked to make the moving gift for neighbors of their house...party happening while we're on vacation, so I'm delivering this to the host today).
















 - Mounted the tin ceiling panel on a board, cut and painted frame and it's up in DD's old room (not sure if I'm going to even use the second panel).

   - You know how this goes...I can't get DH to even look at his 'honeydo list' and he decides to tackle the 'table of secrets' NOW (the one we bought that keeps expanding with 6 leaves).  He got all the problems glued and clamped and then he stripped and sanded it.  I was 'assigned' the staining and three coats of finish (how having and art ed degree automatically makes this my territory is beyond me LOL) and since it took over the whole garage I had to get it done before vacation.  Of course it was 105 degrees for the entire week I spent in the garage (I thought skinny girls didn't sweat), but it's finally done and in the kitchen (well part of it is...5 other leaves done and stored).  Now to find all those mismatched chairs we need to go with it...















Two more jobs to go...
   - I've got the architectural plan for my in-law's new place done, but I've got 3/4 of their furniture still left to 'create' and place before we leave.

  
  - And then there's the last job...packing!!! Yikes...10 days of vacation to pack for and other than having the laundry done I've got nothin'!!!

I've got a dinner out tonight and a ladies night out with the neighbor who's moving tomorrow (and the girls), and then we're off!  Wish me luck! 

I promise to return with lots of vacay pics (and I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone when I get back)!
