A holiday from work…
We are on the eve of my husband’s last week of holidays from work. This is the last chance to get renovations and cleaning done before Winter comes. I have high hopes for what can be accomplished… or, rather… what MUST be accomplished this week.
We’ve been living amidst piles these last months in preparation for this week of “time off”. We’ve gotten toys boxed up, the kitchen mostly pulled apart, and furniture ready to be moved. It’s my hope to reinvent two of the main floor rooms completely. Turning one into a living room, and one into an office with dedicated workstations for all three of us. The kitchen simply needed to be torn apart to make it function better (even if we aren’t really adding anything new to it).
I love living in a small house, but it definitely offers challenges. The main one we face right now, is that there isn’t enough space to accomplish any changes indoors once the weather turns cold. We need to be able to utilize our outside space in order to get these renovations completed. So time is working against us.
Wish us luck.
A week may seem like a lot, but when you get down to the nitty gritty, a week can be easily frittered away (that can’t be right, did I just mix my metaphors again?) LMAO
