Remember blah white walls with hundreds of dings in them?
I cleaned. I fixed dings. Lots and lots of dings. I haven't put up my pictures again yet, but that shouldn't take long. It looks so, so good!
Oh, and because I'm a nerd, I didn't get any action shots of us actually painting, but my sister did. Also, Pete took the kids out to dinner and a movie to keep them out of the way, which was a HUGE help.
Okay, so also, remember when I was whining about having a messy kitchen all the time? And how I need to change my habits and become better at what I do? I've been working really hard at this, and though I haven't been perfect, I've been a lot better. I've been trying to stay on top of laundry (this last week, not so much), and staying on top of dirty dishes. So today...
This is my kitchen with a freshly mopped floor. The dishes are all done. The laundry is running as I type. I dusted and windexed. I tried to snow blow, but I couldn't get the machine started, so I tried shoveling, and it kept blowing back on me, so I'm going to have to try again later today or tomorrow. My chicken is cooked for tonight's dinner. My floors are vacuumed. I am the master of my fate!
YAY for new "memories"!
