What a week!

I now have the most gorgeous living room! My wonderful parents helped me paint the whole thing. It went from this....


to this...

... shortly after this photo was taken our darling cats knocked over the beautiful bouquet of flowers spilling water everywhere.

There is still a little more work to be done on the mantel, but it is so much better than that strange yellow that had been there for 10 years. Finally every room in our house has been painted!
On Thursday morning we were getting ready to paint the hall and were going to run a quick errand downtown. We were sitting at a stop light and were rear ended! I spent a couple of hours getting the van to the repair shop and picking up a rental car. Then I talked to my doctor who sent me to the hospital for 6 hours of monitoring! Everything is just fine with the baby- no damage at all. He wasn't moving around too much after the accident, but he really is more of a nocturnal guy. I came home a little after 8pm to find that my wonderful Dad had painted the entire hallway himself while Mom kept Miss Elsie occupied. I was a little disappointed that this was the last day that my parents were in town, and I didn't get to spend it with them. Miss Elsie and I are planning a trip to the farm soon.
Here is a pic of our littlest painter...
