as I write this, the insulators are finishing up!, the sheetrock has been delivered....
we have lights, fans and all fixtures except the toilet..(not the most fun thing to shop for lol)

after another round of two inspections this week...one this afternoon (after insulation) and one monday (hopefully after sheetrocking is complete) then the plasterers come next week.....
after it dries we can get the go ahead to paint and wainscott....

then it really speeds up....floor, plumbing hooked, electricity, staircase etc....

then we can move around....
then MY work begins!!!!!!! lol set up and decorate!

the elves have been busy.....


with these....

more to come....

Winding down a very restful weekend

What started off as very hectic... I am brushing ryan every 2 hours with a surgical scrub brush.. part of a protocol to help him regulate better etc...but it is very intense and since I'm the only trained person (very particular way to do this!)
I was not looking forward to 4days off in a row but its been okay and the light is at the end of the tunnel...
He does seem calmer somewhat and his eye contact adn language have improved alot!!!
the things i do for this kid, i tell you!

on scrapping news, I am finishing up my projects for dec DT and ready to begin holiday cards..will post some new stuff soon

on the homefront, christmas is up.... couldn't wait esp. since its sitting right in my living room lol
insulation and sheetrock is the plan house this week...keep your fingers crossed that we will be painting by my birthday!!!

happy sunday everyone... enjoy

Happy Thanksgiving.....

I have so much to be thankful for this year....
Ryans increased skills and language... Erins independence and active learning, my supportive and hardworking husband, wonderful luck with our Getty, the opportunity to remodel and grow our house, meeting all our new friends and neighbors, having technology to stay in touch with loved ones and my fortunate design team gigs!
I really feel very blessed today and hope everyone is having a wonderful day and relaxing weekend....
Give Thanks and Be well!
Peace,
Kim
