When I go to work...

I am really scared to go to work and leave Steve home with my kids. Not really because they have a blast. I think I'm going to have to have Steve cancel pix messages on his phone. LOL. It seems as though everything happens when I'm at work.

What would you think when you receive pictures like this on your phone... This would be my son.

Then I get another picture... Caption reads... "Stevie tested and approved"

Then the phone call comes. "Hey Mom guess where I'm at?" I hate these phone calls. LOL. "I'm stuck on my new bunk bed" HUH???? " Steve boosted me up and I don't have a ladder yet." again I say HUH??? "Yep me and Steve built me a bunk bed today!" That proves it I can't leave them home at all by themselves. LOL.

Since I don't get home until midnight I had to wait until this morning to take pictures. WARNING this is a 10 year old messy room!!!! And no antiques were hurt in this process. Thank goodness!!! The bed is actually an antique 3/4 bed from my great aunt. They were going to throw it away, but I stepped in. I cleaned it up a little and put a furniture polish on it and it looks awesome. But you know kids. His sister got a desk and now he wants one, so all they could do was go up and we will put a desk underneath. There will be shelves on the sides. Of course we still need to paint it... and of course my son wants it Ohio State scarlet and grey. We'll see about that. LOL.

Another view... that would be my sons tool box LOL

And now the ladder... hmmm... old quilts, textiles, oh wait this isn't mine LOL. I know I couldn't get a straight on view unless I got into the closet. Maybe when it's done I will get in to give the full affect.

Other than that I confess I have been redecorating. No I haven't pulled out my fall YET. But I am adjusting so that when I do I can just add a little here and there to spice it up. Steve even got into to it. He has a really good eye and is good at decorating. It is still pulled apart, but I'll snap a few teasing photos. LOL Now off to meet the attorney.

What a great idea! And it's wonderful that Steve gets along so well with your son. I'm sure your son will love having a sky-high bunk to sleep in. I can't wait to see his desk area and shelves underneath.
