It is Wednesday, my typical day off from work to spend with Irelyn. This Wednesday I decided she would spend the day at daycare since we were getting carpet installed downstairs. I figured I could get alot done and just take a little time to relax while they installed it. I can't remember the last time I was really alone. I hoped to get a lot of cleaning and organizing done. I woke up with a bad headache as it was. Then, we had quite a few problems with the carpet and the carpet people. To put it simply- It sucked. But, the bedrooms are done now and the rest will now not get done on Monday. On the bright side, the bedrooms look really nice.
Once I calmed down and took a little rest, my headache got better. I needed to get out for awhile so Joe meet me for lunch. Then, retail therapy :). My favorite kind of therapy.
Here is Irelyn's future room with the new paint and carpet!

To back track a little this past weekend while Joe was working on painting, moving furniture, and ripping out carpet I took Irelyn to her Great-Grandma's in Westby for the Sytendae Mai parade. It is an annual tradition. We had a great time this year. Last year she was less than 2 months old and slept through the parade. It was fun to see what a difference a year makes. She watched every float go by, waved at the princesses, danced to the bands, and laughed at the horses. It was really stinken cute :).
