Michael and I are taking a random vacation day tomorrow. But here’s the thing: We’re using it to work our asses off–not behind our desks, but in our house.
Nora is going to daycare.
We’re setting out on a home improvement extravaganza.
I haven’t shared a kitchen update with you in FOREVER–I haven’t even shown you (officially) what our cabinets look like with the doors on. But I’ve been procrastinating mostly because we have not done ANYTHING to it in weeks and weeks. I knew that our productivity with indoor projects like this would plummet once the weather was nice, hence my original goal of getting it done before late spring/summer hit. Oh well, what can you do? It’ll get done eventually.
Tomorrow, our main area of focus is actually going to be on our guest room. My dad has been up to visit a couple of times since we moved here, but he has literally be staying in an empty room with a bed. And that room is actually the room we plan to make Baby #2’s some day, so we need move to the official guest room. We’re painting, need to finish the six panel door installation, and more. We’re hoping to work on a few other miscellaneous projects, too.
It’s pretty sad when you have to take a vacation to get things done around your house, huh? Such is life with kids… :) I’m actually really looking forward to having eight straight hours of uninterrupted DIY time.
Have you ever taken a vacation day just to get stuff done? Have you ever taken more than a day to tackle a big project?
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 33 and have been married to Michael for seven years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
