February is my least favorite month of the year, even worse than August. I’m very happy to see this last one over and done: cabin fever, medical bills, some seasonal depression, social drama that unearthed a variety of older hurts, and on top of that all the fun of trying to get a baby to nap in a small house with three other active children.
But the couch is more or less done. I still need to find a cushion for it, right now we are making do with the old couch cushions. I am waiting for warmer weather and better ventilation before I apply any finish to it.
I took the couch fabric and made a slipcover for the chair, which was a one-day project because I didn’t disassemble the fiddly parts on the arms when I took the fabric off the couch. That should carry us through the last of the potty training, and then I’ll probably reupholster it.
The tax preparation is coming along well, although I’m waiting on MFH for a few numbers.
TLG has been painstakingly cutting pictures out of his workbooks to play with. OLC has been drawing graphs to show her progress toward her savings goals. StrongBoy continues to be an enthusiastic big brother to TBM. TBM will play well by himself for a while, but then he gets bored and starts agitating for more Excitement and Adventure.
