People keep asking me how progress on the house is going. The answer is SLOWLY now.
After the huge crazy push to get moved in, carpets torn up, walls painted and floors down, we’ve had a lull in house progress. Don’t get me wrong, we’re still making progress, but at a much slower pace than we were working at in the beginning.
Frankly, we needed a break. It’s gotten to the point though, that I think I’m so overwhelmed with what has to be done still that I just freeze and am having a hard time deciding what to do. When this happens, nothing gets done. (Please tell me I’m not alone here…)
It’s time to kick it up a notch though. Sorry, Frank!
Sunday I (mostly) finished painting the bonus room. I say “mostly” because Daddy-O seems to like to do the window trim so I’ll let him do that down the road when he feels like it. Also we’ll eventually replace the switches and outlets, but I’m not sure if that’s something I’ll try myself or if I’ll wait for my uncle to help. I’m pretty sure I’m fully capable, but we’ll see.
That’s the panoramic photo from the middle of the futon from last night. As you can see, we’ve started slowly bringing boxes in again and unpacking. There is tons more to bring in and shelves to put it all on other shelves that need to be built etc, but it’s a start. It’s also not likely the final set up. I figure that’ll happen – um – never.
I’ve been saying it for several weeks now, but this weekend I HAVE to paint the dresser so it can come inside and be used. Not that I’m a super neat person, but sometimes I do like to have all my clean clothes in one place so I’m not left searching for my favorite pants. Also, I have this current desire to be a grown-up and have a respectable, company can drop by and it’s not horrible, home.
Today at least.
That means tonight after (hopefully) hot yoga I’ll go home and bring in another couple of boxes to unpack. Tomorrow I don’t have much planned after work so I can do some more and ask Frank for help with what he can do too. This weekend after swimming (weather permitting) I’ll do some spray painting and if it doesn’t cooperate, I’ll make some curtains.
A couple boxes here, a few boxes there…it’ll all get done sooner or later. Hopefully sooner because I’m a getting a little antsy and an Antsy Court is not a Happy Court. I’ll check in Monday and let you know what I actually got done and post photos over on Instagram as we go.
