Well I have been painting and painting and yes doing more painting. Oh and by the way did I mention I HATE to paint. Well I do. We have been doing some remodeling in our bathroom so I have been painting walls and ceilings and then yesterday I added to that by doing trim and the bathroom linen cupboard. I know it will look really good when we ( or I should say I, because Ross has not helped at all) are done. I will have Macy show me how to post pictures, again, cause I don't remember how to. Wow that is the story of my life. Macy came over yesterday and we also put vinyl lettering up on my kitchen soffett. It looks so good. It only took me about a year to decide what I wanted to do. I don't like a lot of the cutesy sayings so it took me awhile to figure out what I wanted. But I am glad I waited cause I really like it. Our house is really starting to take on my personality. Thats good, because if it was taking on Ross' I am not so sure how it would look. His taste is well how should I say this without sounding terrible. BAD. I guess there was no nice way to say that. Yikes. Am I being mean. No, just truthful. Hopefully the bathroom will be done some time next week. The vanity is suppose to be here tomorrow and then guess what , I have to paint it. Oh wooooooo is me. At least the weather has been cooperating, not hot and humid like it was earlier in the month.
Ross will be pleasantly surprised when he comes home tonight. I made a rhubarb pie and shortcake for the stawberries that we have. He planted some last year and he is picking strawberries almost daily. I'm kinda picky about stawberries so I haven't been eating any. They are a little too soft for my liking. They have to be pretty firm and sweet for me to eat them. There is just something about a mushy soft berry that really makes me , well how can I say this delicately, GAG. There you have it. Sometimes you just have to say what it is and not church it up, as Macy would say.
Whitley will be home the 11th of July and I can hardly wait to see her. I am glad we will have a few weeks to spend together before she gets married. It will be a busy and fun time for all of us. She has really found herself a great guy. He is so nice and kind. I am really happy for her, but a little sad for me. She is the last one to leave the nest and I am having a little more trouble with that than I thought I would. Oh well I will surivie and live through it, I have for all the others.
All in all, life is good.

I am so excited. Ben called yesterday to tell us they are having 2 boys. I think he is pretty excited to have someone carry on the Staller name, and also he said they can be fishing buddies. Ben is the only Staller boy, so now the name can live on. I know he and Jocelyn will be great parents. I am so happy and excited for them.

My New Kitchen Wall

I love my new kitchen wall. As you can see it was yellow and Macy talked me into painting a big red stripe on it. At first I didn't want to, but now I am sooo glad I did. I love bright colors and this makes me feel good. The bright blue wall vase was one I got when we were in Uruguay this past fall. It will always remind me of the great time we had there with Ben and Jocelyn.
