Who Wants Trim for their Birthday?

It's my birthday. My last ever birthday - 29 and never a day older. I must admit that it hasn't been the best of bday's. Work, skin, lack of sleep... you know. Generalized chaos at it's best. If I could only sleep well I think I'd be better poised to deal with it all, but you can't always control yourself.

Besides all that personal, feeling "Off" stuff, homework has been chugga-luggin right along. I accomplished nearly all of my weekend goals - cleaned up, hung up the pictures, ordered baby gates, purchased the lighting fixture. Very productive.

A second coat of stain on the hallway trim.
Mudroom window prep and measurement for trim
Cutting and staining (2 coats) of mudroom window trim (sides and sill)
