Steven and a friend replaced the back side of the fence this weekend. The left side, back and gate are done now. That just leaves the right side and the finishing touches. Can’t wait to get rid of the chain link!
That things would just go as planned
That projects would be completed within a reasonable time frame (reasonable for me)
That this house wasn’t so damn slanted
That I wouldn’t stress out over the “small things”
That there were more hours in the day
That the previous homeowner had done their research when hiring contractors
That we could finish one project before moving onto another
That we had the time to enjoy our completed projects
That every planned project didn’t create a new unexpected (and expensive) project
That someone (not us) had replaced the plaster walls with drywall
That Steven had a helper (not me or my sister)
That Steven had the tools that he needs to get things done right
That we didn’t have to make 5 trips a day to the hardware store
That hardware stores had a frequent shopper discount card
That the employees at hardware stores were more knowledgeable
That there was more space between the houses
That we could actually use the garage to park our cars (what a concept!)
That the Buffalo weather didn’t go from chilly to pollen ridden in two seconds
Whining over… for now.
All of these lovely gifts and baby items have been sitting in boxes in the spare bedroom for the last few months. My anxiety has flared up numerous times as a result and I’m thrilled that I finally get to start putting stuff away and setting up the nursery. Yay!
Showing off my sewing projects. I was supposed to have them done on Sunday, but that didn’t happen. The car seat cover was much easier than I expected. The burp cloths on the other hand caused so many problems. I think it was mostly because of the thickness of the terrycloth that I used. My sewing machine was jammed repeatedly, but my lovely husband came to the rescue. I made duplicates of the burp cloths to give as a gift.
Here’s to a very productive weekend. All of the furniture is stained and complete, the mural is done and I completed some sewing projects for baby. 5 Weeks to go! More pictures to come.
