Ron, (who is the facility Manager and my boss) is trying to get started here at work but the weather seems to stop whatever project he starts. He is the kind of guy that perseveres. He will bust his back to get what ever project he has started, finished. I need to find that kind of strength so I can get my stuff done.
My husband and I renovated our upstairs kids bathroom. It came out pretty nice if I say so myself. What a job! My new projects planned are to paint the kitchen, my bedroom, the family room, the living room, upstairs hallway and steps. I want to redo the family room and living room. I want to put the TV in the family room and not keep one in the living room. Maybe my living room will stay cleaner. I want to buy a new couch and love seat for the living room.
Since my daughter has moved out I want to change her room up. She moves to Georgia in May, and will take all her stuff with her, I am going to make a reading room. I want to paint it a spa blue, It is such a relaxing color. I want to put an new shade and curtains. Then I am going to buy an over sized chair and ottoman, and a small book case and a tall lamp to put behind the chair for perfect reading light. I am also going to put in a white rug. There will be a lock on the door so that it stays clean. No kids and No dogs allowed. I have collected some really nice pieces of art over the years, so I can't wait to put some of that up. I have vaulted ceilings in my living room. When the TV and the TV stand are removed from the living room, I am going to hang a whole wall of artwork from the bottom of the wall to the top. That is going to look awesome! I love to decorate and switch things up. My husband is an excellent painter. He is fast and he never has to use tape. He can make the most perfect lines and never drips. He is always yelling at me because I am a big dripper.
What can I say, I never said I was perfect. I was also able to get stick on rug squares for my sons room. They were dirt cheap and I love the fact that if he stains one I can just rip it up and put a new one down. For his room I had it painted grey with one wall red. Then I hired an artist to paint some of his favorite things (sayings, logo's, and pictures) all around his room. It came out great. The artist really impressed me. I am going to be so up his butt about keeping his room clean. My youngest daughter had her room re-done about 2 years ago. We painted and pulled out the rug. It seems no matter what I say to her or how I try to help her, she just cannot or will not keep her room clean. It drives me nuts!! How do you get it through a teenagers head that it is important to keep your room clutter free and clean? I can't live in clutter. When I was a kid I saved everything but I really thought I did that because we always had so little. I felt like I had to hold on to what ever I had because I might not be able to replace any of it. Now I don't like to keep anything unless it has an immediate purpose. By that I mean, if I can't use it now, get rid of it. I'm happy to say that my house is very much clutter free. I feel relaxed when I come home and do not see a mess or clutter thrown about the house. I don't know how people can keep a clutter filled house.
Surprisingly enough, even with this bad weather today, customers have been coming to their units to switch out clothes from winter to spring. They are also putting away winter decorations and pulling out spring things. I was talking to one lady who was pulling out decorative bunnies and such. She said if she didn't do it now and put some cheerful spring stuff around, she was going to go batty. The next warm day we have I think I'm going to clean out my garage and put away the snow blower, salt, shovels and anything else that screams winter. I am going to get my kayaks down and put my camping equipment in the garage. I also want to get my beach stuff out. I love going to the beach when the kids are in school. I take my dogs to Island Beach State Park. They love to run around with no leash and I love watching them have a good time. Well, watching the snow coming down has put me in such a Spring mood. It can't get here soon enough.
