I'm a Real Adult Now

Well folks, I'm officially a grown up and moved out of my parents house - and I LOVE it! I love having my own bedroom with a queen size bed again. I love having my own bathroom that I can put the razor one place and come back the next day and it's still in that place. I love having my own closet, and my own washer and dryer, and I love that my kids have their own bathroom too, and I love that I have my own kitchen again, and I mostly love that my kids love it all too.

I forgot to mention how much I love my little one car garage. It is little and I drive a mini van, sometimes I don't pull up far enough and the door hits the bumper and I have to pull up some more - and once I hit the freezer that is in the garage (I'm Mormon and feel that if I don't have an extra freezer full of food my family will in fact starve to death) but it didn't even dent it.

I've become addicted to spray painting furniture. I love that I can do this in my garage and I can take as long as I want to finish it. While living with my parents I spray painted a rocking chair and a bench black. Since I've moved I've painted a table that is by the window and I need to do the coffee table - all black of course. I'll probably do that this week and then my house will be complete.

We decorated for Halloween yesterday and I took a couple pictures on my phone - not good quality but that's all I got. Heidi is not going to be pleased when she sees that she made one of the pictures... I'll post more soon.
