My Busy Saturday ...

Our weekend was dominated by this innocent looking item.

Oh, yes. The potty. The Wild One will be 3 in April. I think we've avoided it long enough and she's off from school for a couple of weeks so we decided to go for it. We tried a couple of months ago and it was a disasterous failure. This time, she did pretty well, but it certainly involved all of our time between one of us dealing with the training and accident clean-up and the other running interference with the Happy Girl who wants to be in the middle of it all.

Nevertheless, I managed to RUN to the fabric store to get new fabric to cover my dining room chairs. The current fabric is a red and white floral that matched how my dining room was before.

I plan to paint the table and chairs to match my sideboard this summer. I had planned to cover the chairs with a blue damask, but only had enough for 5 chairs and I have 6. I couldn't get more of the same fabric. So, the other day I saw another fabric that I really liked but wanted to think about it. I decided that I preferred the less feminine stripe to the damask. Also, the blues and greens in the stripe seem more interesting and versatile.

So, I got my staple gun out ready to staple away!

... until I ran out of staples on chair #4! So, Sunday I go to Home Depot, get staples and come home ready to continue. I was so careful picking the right size and I still got the wrong staples!!Now I have to wait until Tuesday to go exchange the staples and I so hope they have the ones I need. Is this just not meant to be?
