I think sometimes kids, (I know I was guilty when I was in high school) forget that this high school experience should be fun and one of the best of their lives . . . But you can't tell that to them . . . cuz remember, they KNOW EVERYTHING!
I just wish I really was as smart as I THOUGHT I was when I was a teenager.
Avery going out to his car to go to school!Avery flipping me off because I continued to take pictures of him even after he told me not to. Oh well . . . . Alex's always used to flip me off for taking pictures too . . . And now he is fabulous! So there is hope for Avery! Pulling out of the garage!Getting ready to go! I didn't chase him down the street . . . that will be next year when he's a senior . . . this is the last of my babies . . . it's hard to see them grow up . . . but as they have gotten older, things have calmed down a lot . . . And that is nice.
Avery has always been my hardest child . . . there are days when we would like to wring each others necks, but as a lot of mothers and children, we take a deep breath and turn the tv up loud so that we can't hear the other one talking any more.
I love my boy . . . I hope he has a fantastic year!
Take a look~
This is the super cool floor rug I bought! Don't you just love Shag?!? Yeah, Baby!!! Its a super thick wonderful shag, I got it at Sam's Club, REALLY CHEAP! I love a great deal!
this is the wall on the opposite side of the room from the shower. Tim painted the cabinets white, I think they look so nice! (Oh and we need to put in all the switch plate covers.)

When that happened it seemed the perfect time for a Bathroom Make over . . . And in perfect Cheri style, I was ready on Saturday to start throwing paint on the wall until it looked pretty good . . . and in Perfect Tim style, he wanted to re texture the walls, and make sure everything was perfect.
We go with Tim's way of doing it because, although the process makes me crazy~ because it takes too long, in the end Tim's way is WAY better and it looks nicer.
Jessica from the light store next door to my store, GAVE me too Fantastic lights They will go where you see the holes and wires above the white field, where the mirror will go.
Here are the lights! Aren't they pretty!?!?!?
Here is what the bathroom looks like painted!!! Yippee it's all painted! Now just to do the floor board trim and the trim around the door, the window ledge, and that little wood shelf by the toilet.
So yesterday I'm in the store, and Jaqui had just got there and I was going to head out to the wholesaler, and I get 3 text messages from Tim, showing me tile . . . . Ok, I didn't know we were looking at tile. So on my way to the wholesaler, I run by home depot, and we look at some tile, because it really shouldn't cost much to re tile the floor, an Tim thinks that while we have it all apart, that we should do it. . . . Hummmmm . . . . I don't know . . . but if it makes him happy and he wants to do it, who am I to say no ?
We brought home 4 tiles we liked, and then narrowed it down to these two. The darker one, and the lighter one that has the little door stopper thing over it, (I know it looks a lot like the floor we already have, but it's WAY nicer!
We decided on the light one, with the door stopper over it. So I don't know when he is going to do that . . .
We are making progress . . . I don't know what is on his agenda to do today . . . I hope he gets lots done! I love coming home from work and seeing all the wonderful progress he made!
How does it look so far??? What do you think?

I had a little tiff . . . with my sister Tiffini . . . I was sad because Tony was going to move out (more on that in a sec) and she wrote on my facebook wall, "Wow! Way to be enmeshed." Or something like that. So I looked up what enmeshed meant and this is how the rest of it played out.
The bathroom used to have one of those "holly wood lights" with a bunch of big round bulbs in it, and I got a FANTASTIC deal on some really pretty lights (Tim would like to use them in our bathroom instead, but it goes so well with the colors for this bathroom. That I dont' want to change.) So he had to move the holes in the wall and make two rather than just the one that was there before.
I think he is looking at Where I "Schlooped paint" on the wall . . . I'm so glad he loves me because if he didn't he would probably ring my neck!
My mom had a huge bunion and spurs in her big toe, arthritis had eaten the cartilage out of the toe, so she finally couldn't take the pain any more and decided to have surgery.
After surgery she gave me a bit of a scare as he blood pressure went up to 208 over 110 . .. It was bad!!!
