Hey friends!! I’ve missed you all!
The month of March always seems to be a challenge for me. Pittsburgh winters drag on forever, and March is usually my breaking point. This year the beginning of April joined in on the fun. I can’t even believe how un-motivated and exhausted I feel during the last few weeks of winter. It’s terrible. But I’m so happy to say that the weather has finally made a turn for the better. I’m sure we’ll have a couple more cold days – like this past Saturday when I spent the most miserable hour of my life shivering on the soccer field. (It serves me right because I volunteered Kevin to work in the snack bar during the games. At least both girls played at the same time on adjacent fields!)
I’ve actually managed to get a few things done during my doldrums. I should say re-done. Nearly everything I’ve worked on lately has been something that I recently finished and decided to change again. Do you remember this?
It looks like this now…
How about this?
It looks like this…
(It’s not quite done. Kevin is going to make me a new shelf (so I didn’t paint the old one) and I need to make liners for the wire baskets on the top shelf.)
I’ll post more on both of these projects once the Entry/Pantry is completely done. Which will be soon. I hope.
I rearranged the living room. haha. That’s funny because the room is so small that my version of rearranging is actually just changing the position of the big white chair. It used to face the television, at an angle.
It actually turned out to be a pretty significant move because it made me decide that I want to sell the chair and get a loveseat for that space instead. I have been thinking for weeks that the chair is too big. I know that the loveseat is bigger of course, but at least 2 people can sit on it! (That would be 2 people that aren’t both my kids. Because there is no way that 2 of my kids would ever sit on a loveseat together in peace. ugh.)
So now the chair faces the couch.
Can’t wait to get the loveseat!!! (The chair definitely needs a new cover. Do you think that I should replace the cover before I try to sell it? Just wondering if it might be a waste of $35 if someone doesn’t want a white cover.)
We didn’t get a new dog. That’s Bella – a good friend’s dog that we babysit. She totally beat Zoey to the best spot in the house. It didn’t last long though – Alley cat is now stretched out there!
I also brought in a table that I normally use on the porch. Yes, I know – I could advertise for Ikea. The stuff is just so darn inexpensive and irresistible to me!
I’m so bummed that I won’t be able to use my go-to impatiens this year because of this dreaded mildew disease that wiped them out last year. Hopefully I’ll find a substitute that I like just as much.
Thankful for spring…
