Where are those elves when you need them!? I have been scrubbing the floors before carpet goes in. Plaster, sheet rock dust, saw dust, and grime from everyone working and walking around, was ground into the floor boards. Hours to get them cleaner. And now I'm making curtains/drapes. This room is ready for carpet and handles on the closet doors. Then it's done!
For fun yesterday, I met up with Brenda for breakfast. Then we went around to yardsales. Fun to look and maybe find a few things that you can use. I get sucked in by "cute" every time. Getting better at NOT getting every cute thing I see. But I did find this long denim coat for $5! It's been washed and fits me really well. It's too straight on the sides, so there will be some reconstruction. sleeves are alittle short, so I have to take the cuffs down or add something. Actually, I plan on adding a lot of color to this! Right after all the other bizzillion things get done around here!
Don't get overwhelmed by stuff. Make a list or several for each room on what you want to do or get done. Now add in a couple of fun things to each list. That is just as important as the "have to's", "must do's" and now the "want to do's". You have to do things that are fun too or next thing you know, another year has gone by and you have nothing to show for it or remember fondly. It doesn't have to be a bucket list....how about a fun list!?
Plan to be surprised!
