Do you ever have one of those dreams where you are running back and forth and just can't seem to get anything done? That's how I'm feeling lately in real life.
I know things are actually getting done but it just doesn't feel like it. The desk that I wanted to put in storage three weeks ago is still in the middle of the living room. And now it has a companion--my daughter's king size bed!
We took her bed out of the room and I got a daybed to put in its place. Wow, does the room look so much bigger now! I still have to paint the two kids' bedrooms but slowly but surely I'm making progress.
I managed to thoroughy clean the master bathroom walls, so I didn't have to repaint them. Hopefully the kitchen and front bathroom walls will clean up just as easily (it took just a bit of elbow grease--and lots of TSP).
The last three days I've been practically doing nothing but laundry, load after load! I finally got it all done yesterday.
Yesterday a glass guy came to give us an estimate on replacing the badly scratched sliding patio door and fix a bathroom window gasket. Today another glass guy is coming to see if we can get a better deal. For the price of the first one we could actually replace the slider with a whole new unit! Ha!
Meanwhile my husband has been doing lots of heavy duty outdoor work, like trimming the trees and that sort of thing. He's going to borrow a pressure washer this weekend.
Hopefully we'll be making a run to the storage facility this weekend.
I think I'll take a breather tonight with a little drinkie poo, after I do my running around today (got to get new bedding for my son's bed and the new daybed). I celebrated the 4th with a buttery nipple coctail, one of my favorites. I had to get the camera when I put the glass on the table and saw this!
(Buttery Nipple Coctail: equal parts Irish Cream and butterscotch schnapps. I usually prefer mine over ice, but other recipes say to float the cream over the schnapps.)
