After traveling nearly every weekend during the holidays,
and being gone the three weekends following Christmas
Hubby & I were worn out!
It seemed like as soon as I unpacked on Sunday, washed and folded clothes,
cleaned one room, and grocery shopped, that I was repacking again on Thursday!
That is just a tough schedule to live by for three or more weeks in a row,
and lots of little knick knack jobs around the house get ignored!
So, after stealing this idea from some of our friends,
Hubby & I set a goal that throughout 2011
we would only leave town one weekend each month.
We're hoping that this will allow us to cherish all the time we're with family/ friends out of town,
and still leave us plenty of time to invest in our relationships in town!
And also give me 3 weekends a month to tackle home projects...
So, these last few evenings have been spent playing catch-up on little projects around here.
Started on the eclectic wall...
(are you sick of hearing me talk about it yet?
I am. so. ready. to. check. it. off. my. list.)
Fixed the wrinkle in our breakfast room rug.
I was the one who put down the rug and moved all the furniture around...
and that table is heavy. I couldn't lift it and fix the crinkle at the same time.
The task took less than 3 minutes, it was just a matter of remembering to ask Hubs to help me.
so much better!
Changed out dead light bulbs.
I am embarrassed at how many light bulbs were out, from ceiling fans, to our breakfast room chandelier, to bathroom fixtures.
Touch-up painted the office.
No lie...that had been that way since we moved in ... occurred as we took off the painter's tap.
Hubs fixed my leaky faucet...
Which actually wasn't installed correctly from the beginning.
The handle turned the wrong way.
Hubs was the one who installed it.
and caught up on e-mails, laundry, dishes, etc. etc. etc.
Here's to hoping you had a successful week around your home as well!
