Goings On at the Chateau


So, as you have noticed, I've been off of the blog for a few days. For that, I apologize. Here's an update of the goings on at Chateau Wallace:

I have started the great dining room redo. I was thinking about taking pictures of it before I started clearing Collin's things out of it, but it was too horrific even for this Halloween season. The carpet alone is more terrifying than anything you've ever seen (and smells terrifying, too). For a while, it will be William's room, and hopefully, he will sleep in it!


I learned a few things:
  • Stouffer's lasagna doesn't taste that good
  • My bum no longer fits on a toddler's slide
  • It is actually quite easy to refuse to do a few chores so that the other people that live in the house are forced to actually contribute (husband not included - he helps a lot)
  • I am too easily drawn into celebrity gossip sites
  • I truly enjoy The Real Housewives of. . . Some of those women make me feel like I've never had any psychiatric problems at all!

I was started on another med by my doctor and I am sleepy all of the time. It helps a lot, though, so I am trying to deal with the sleepiness in exchange for more stability. I've started napping, which I've never done before.


The pictures are from a weekend trip to Leed's Farm, a great farm with farm related activities, lots of goats, and pumpkins that I didn't get any pictures of. I like any farm that serves pie in the hay loft.

I hear you on Real Housewives--I got sucked into Beverly Hills and *back* into Atlanta (trainwreckiest of wrecks that it is) in the last week. But NYC is still my fav.

Great photos - I love the goat. I can't do the housewives, for some reason; they stress me out!

We need to get on the TV people to create Realhousehusbands of the Midwest :-)

Erin, great pictures. Sorry you're sleepy. Hopefully a temporay side effect.

Ruth said...

Oh celeb gossip sites are my downfall. I don't mean to start looking and then all of a sudden it's an hour later and I'm tragically interested in the Jonas Brothers' love lives...

Char said...

i liked the original shows but now, some of these women are truly overindulged and have wayyyyyy too much time on their hands.

I hope you will post "after" pictures of the dining room :) I hope you continue to do better, I always look forward to your posts.

Great pictures as always, and I agree about the Stouffer's lasagna. I am quite addicted to their mac & cheese, however. ;-)

I've been considering a photoessay on clearing out our basement...but I'm way too ashamed for anyone to see the pit that it is.

Hope your naps help and the meds improve life for you. :-)

The dreaded day you learn your bum no longer fits (sigh). Lol ;)
Hope the new meds treat you well... rest when you can and know we all love you!!!

I am snorting and laughing about your bum on the toddler's slide.
