What The Hecka is This?
Our big plan is to finish the basement in the New Year so that the boys have a hangout spot for them and their friends. So I have been preparing the basement.
Step 1: Remove six years of artwork from the walls. I was so sad when I did this. I look at it all the time when I am on my treadmill and had no idea I was so attached to it. Some of it will have to be framed and brought back into the basement when it is done.
Step 2: Say goodbye to the race track on the floor. Don and I painted this on the floor about four years ago and many a child has whizzed around our basement on a tricycle or plasma car or whatever vehicle was popular at the time. You can see how worn the paint is on the sharpest corner. It is proof of the traffic this race track has seen. Don told Ben the paint fairy came and made it for Ben and Jack. Ben has asked me if the paint fairy was real, haven't told him about that one yet either... So hard to say good bye, more for me than the boys of course.
Lots of trouble letting go lately...hope I get better at it because at some point the boys are going to be irritated with me...like when I try to go on their first date with them...
