Today we finally took action on working on our house.  For the last, hmmm…3 1/2 years, we have pretty much been in survival mode.  Great & blessed, but none the less survival mode.  If I kept us all alive by the day’s end, it was a successful day.  Forget about the home – lets just keep the laundry rotating, food intake up, and nap schedules firm. 
So, today, we finally started the beginning of transforming our house and our junk into a home.  :-)  We had an electrician come out and wire our coat closet so it could become our office.  Then, we had him wire and run the cable from our side wall in our living room to above the fire place.  We have hodge podge furniture in there right now, and I’m planning on cleaning it out and simplifying that space so it isn’t so chaotic.  There is plenty of chaos with the lively people that fill our home.  We don’t need junk to ‘chaos-it-up’ any more!
Oh, the electrician walked in to our home this morning and there was chocolate o’s ceral scattered and ground into the carpet.  I had left the living room in a presentable-ish state when we all went upstairs to get dressed.  One or two of the boys must have escaped & helped themselves and the carpet to their cereal.  Very humbling when the electrician has to ‘crunch’ his way across your living room floor.  Bless his heart, he vacuumed my den with out even asking before he even started his work.  That’s service right there.
Part of the chaos – all the coats & bags from the coat closet perched on the kitchen table. 
I will update with pictures later – once we are more complete.
So, I updated all my bloggy stuff.  I finally updated our About Us page.  It hadn’t been updated in 2 years.  :-)  I need to add Haven’s birth story to our little side column. 
Hmmm, what else? Oh, here’s a little something sweet…
Brotherly Love.  These hugs start out sweet, but usually end in tears. 
   Have a good night, lovelies~
