well, it’s wednesday and i’m sipping a lovely flavoured coffee i treated myself to yesterday. it’s hard to feel motivated when all i want to do is curl back into bed. so, to try and get the ball rolling i made a to do list.
i like lists. they help me. keep me organized. motivated. on track.
today’s to do list:
hit the gym
3. tidy kids room
4. tidy the office
5. vacuum main floor
6. book hair appointment
7. put away laundry (it’s all folded and has been sitting in the basement for days!)
8. sew, sew, sew!
i think that’s all i can realistically fit in for today. i’ve already actually done two things from my list: i hit the gym and have showered! i included them to make myself look and feel better… lame, i know! hahaha!
DH finished putting in the kitchen floor last night so i gotta get things tidied and vacuumed before all the kids come home from school. i look after some kids after school a few days here there and I like to tidy before they come, and clean once they have left! haha! our reno is now in the fun stages of pretty things being built and stuck to place. all the dirty work like plumbing and ripping out drywall is a distant memory at this point! although, it didn’t feel like it at the time.
when this part of the renovation process was well underway, it honestly felt like it would never end. I didn’t realize just how much work went into the plumbing of a home. when you come to think about it, it really is quite extraordinary. one thing I did want to get done was my drains. You see I had a friend who had a bit of trouble with hers, they clogged, overflowed, and leaked, causing so much water damage! So she ended up having to call in some Water Damage Restoration Experts especially as it can turn into mould pretty quickly which is so unhealthy for your breathing. Plus, I can’t remember the last time they had been cleaned, so I think it is fair to say that they are well overdue. luckily, we were able to get in touch with a company similar to Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling (summersphc.com/franklin/services/plumbing/drain-cleaning/) who were able to do this for us. and let me just tell you, it really has made a difference to my home even though i didn’t expect it to. everything else soon followed suit and all our renovations went off without a hitch. phew… i for one am glad. i will share pictures of the reno soon…. promise! things are really looking and feeling different at our house!
we even got our living/ dining rooms in order for x-mas. our tree is up and decorated. there are some other festive things out on display, although our IKEA kitchen is stacked in the dining room corner… but that’s all temporary!
time to get to work!
HAPPY WEDNESDAY PEEPS!
