GBU - June 10, 2012

This is going to be the Bossy's Room Makeover Edition

The Good: 
  • Ceiling needs to be sanded one more time, and then it can be painted.
  • Walls are painted (yes, we did it out of order....had to due to time).
  • Carpet will be installed this coming Friday.
  • We decided what to do about the closet.
The Bad:
  • Not sure about the shades....may need to return them and find something else.
  • Bookshelf is out of stock.
  • We are holding off on the art work due to budget (this is Bad because it is like the finishing touches that will have to wait).
The Ugly:
  • Having Bossy's "stuff" all over the place is driving me nuts!
  • Bossy and Sassy are NOT getting along in the same room at bedtime.

You know the deal....what are your GBUs this week???


  1. The Good: The Princess arrived safely at her destination today, after driving through horrible weather. I actually made 2 Pinterest recipes! And (drumroll) - financial aid stuff is finally all worked out.

    The Bad: I (almost) forgot to pay my life insurance premium.

    The Ugly: My tomatoes seem to have blossom end rot. I am NOT happy.

  2. Good: I found 2 new bra's dirt cheap that are super comfy!!!
    Bad: It's SUPER hot here.
    Ugly: Our central air is broken. WAHHHH!!!!! lol!

    Hope things start moving along for bossys room! Can you google ideas for decoration that are free or next to free? Do you have a freecycle group in your area or thrift stores that you could scope out some funky stuff for his room?

    1. Carla, do you mind telling me where you found the undergarments, because I bought a bunch from a big dept. store and won't wear them - kicking myself for paying too much for something I hate. I won't tolerate those foam-rubber clamshells that are in ALL the selections these days, so finding anything else is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

      Mysti - you're a better person than me - I would not attempt major remodeling with people living in the house. I think I would start itching from stress after one day of having kids' stuff spread out everywhere.

  3. Mysti, I am sure this will all be over with soon and the room will look so nice! Yeah kids in the same room that are used to their own space. Difficult.
