On My "Not So Good" List

Bodey sliced my leather chair with a seam ripper. Multiple times. I could puke and really don't feel like being nice to him; not even pretend nice. The other arm of the chair looks similar to this one. Does anyone know of a good boarding/military school?

Kitchen Before

Not the best picture, but note the wall color, trim color and cabinet color. ALL NEW, coming sometime within the next 15 years. Just kidding, but it is going to take a while. I just started sanding today, and hate it. My arm hurts and I'm not even 1/4 of the way done in the kitchen, and that doesn't even include the rest of the trim (and door/window frames) in the house. Then on to priming, then paint. Why do I get myself into these projects? I just want the finished product, but am too cheap to hire someone to do it. That's why.

Just Different

At any given time of the day, you can walk into Booker's room, and this is what it will look like. Toys put away (for the most part), dirty clothes in the hamper, etc. Bed not made, but we aren't bed makers, so that doesn't surprise me.
At any given time of the day you can try to walk into Bodey's room, and this is what you will find... or worse!

It's just amazing how different they can be. Booker takes pride in keeping his room picked up. He even tells Bodey that he works very hard to keep his room clean. He is also not the one to throw a fit when I tell them to clean their rooms. He already knows he's done. He figured that out a long time ago. I don't think Bodey will ever figure it out. He could just care less. Now, I know that as the mom, I could do something about this... I just haven't yet. But it might be a new lesson in the very near future.
