Here is the mural I painted. Remember it has magnetic primer under the lower half of the wall - as high as the dark blue on the side walls. The little animals, vehicles, etc, are all magnets - 60 of them.
My three year old tested out the magnetic wall while I painted the verse. This section he's playing with is a gravel pit and has construction vehicle magnets.
Sunday afternoon we decided at the last minute to go to Walmart (100 miles away). We didn't get out of town until 3:30, and it was 40+ degrees - probably more like 50. I took my light jacket. When we headed home at 9:00, we drove into a bad blizzard with high wind - snowing sideways so bad we could hardly make out the next reflector post. It was like that 60 miles of the drive home. We got home around 11, and then I had all my weekend cleaning to do. I had been at the church all day Saturday and intended to do it Sunday afternoon. I was up until 12:30 am, then couldn't go to sleep. I tossed and turned until nearly 2 am, then woke again at 4 and 4:30. The baby got up at 5:30 to nurse, and I had to be up at 6:30. I doubt I slept a full four hours. Then I had a root canal this morning at 9. It was the most painful thing I've ever been through - including child birth. I've had root canals before that weren't too bad, but this one was infected and was a top front tooth. Anyway, I'll spare you the horrid details. They say I will be in a good deal of pain for 4-5 days. I'm so sore today that I called my husband to see if he could come home a little early when my daughter has to go to work this afternoon. I'm going to try to rest until then.
