Fact: Not being married negatively affects the state of my house.
This is a follow-up/weekly post where YOU my blog audience “come home” with me to see if having you here helps me get home improvement projects done. For previous post go here.
Premise (same as last week – if read previously – skip down to Projects.)
I find being unattached affects the status of my home improvement projects in two ways.
1. The fact that there is someone coming home kind of gives me a kick in the pants to get stuff done. Clean up, pick up, make improvements.
2. I am so much more motivated to do home improvements when someone else is doing it with me.
Projects: Finish paint in both bedrooms. 1/2 DONE!
I am super close to having my 13 yr old daughter’s room done! Thanks to my wonderful SIL, J, we painted all day yesterday, then last night E and I cleaned the floor – WE ARE READY TO MOVE FURNITURE PEOPLE! Of course, I need the furniture mover guys… Well, my part is (mostly) done – a little window/door trim painting remains. I also need the blinds put up, but when we tore out our back steps to replace them, we discovered that the back half of the 123 yr old house is standing on rotting something-or-others, so the hanging of the blinds is on the back burner. Sigh.
THE ROOM LAST WEEK (BEFORE)
This past week the amount of work left to do on the “new” portion of the house, on top of my regular duties, just seemed overwhelming. But some really wonderful things happened – like my children cleaning my entire house beautifully while I was out on Saturday night. Plus our family received ANOTHER blessing this week – but that deserves it’s own post…
Projects for this week:
Finish paint in my (new) bedroom!
