Help With the Laundry

Hey, guys.  I worked on Danielle's laundry room.  It's not finished.  I still have to add some decor touches and straighten up the hanging rod.  I didn't realize how crooked it was until I took the photos.  All the partially finished rooms I recently put together will be completed when I am feeling better.

In all honesty, I'm having a difficult time with these shingles and I'm not functioning at 100%. The pain is intense and frequent even with my pain meds.  If I could, I would just sleep through the whole thing.  It's been three weeks, and it feels like a lot longer.  Anyhoo....

Yesterday I was able to sit at my sewing machine for the first time in a month and make Dasia a dress.  I hope to finish a couple more outfits for her soon so I can reopen my Etsy store.  

Danielle remembered she had a load of clothes in the washer.  Jacob follows her to the laundry room.
"So are you going to help Mommy with the laundry?"  (Danielle) 

"I want to do it."  (Jacob)

"Okay, but let me open the door for you."  (Danielle)

With Danielle's help, Jacob is able to stuff the clean clothes into the dryer.

"Wow, aren't you a good little helper?"  (Danielle)

Danielle turns on the dryer, scoops up Jacob and heads out.  It's been a long day and she would really like to take a nap.  Unfortunately, the holiday company is still there.  She'll figure something out.

  2. Ugh shingles - that's really painful from what I hear. I had an allergic reaction to some pain gel last year that was similar and I wouldn't want to go through it again. I will definitely be praying for you. Take it easy though while you are recuperating because it can leave you with Chronic Fatigue.
    Oh, and Danielle looks really cute.

    1. Carrickters - Allergic reactions are really bad too. Shingles causes nerve pain, which is difficult to relieve. Fingers crossed it will go away real soon.

    1. Jaye - Thanks. Once I get some pictures up it will look more cozy. There has been a lot of sickness with my friends and neighbors this year already. Not sure what is going on.

    The laundry room is so cute though! I love how you put in the "floating" shelf.

  6. I hope you're feeling better soon. What a rotten way to have to start the new year!

    I really like that you paired the red washer/dryer with black and white wallpaper. It makes the room (to me) feel energizing. If my laundry room was like that, I'd feel ready to take on all the dirty clothes every time I walked in there!

    2. Jaiden - You are probably right. Zoé is probably off somewhere getting spoiled. Nicole is loving her new room. She is 10.

  9. I hope you feel better soon, Vanessa.

    The laundry room is coming along nicely. I like the red washer and dryer.. This post reminds me that I put a small load of clothes in the dryer Friday and there they remain.

    1. Phyllis - I hate the idea of losing time to illness, so I'm trying to be productive. Getting back to sewing the past couple of days has been a big accomplishment. The pain is intense. I'm so tired of dealing with it, that I'm just trying to block it out now.

      Danielle is making sure she gives Jacob a little extra time right now. He's becoming a good little helper.
