With the holidays approaching I am feeling more and more pressure to finish up this little apartment of ours. Family and friends will be coming to visit us over the next few weeks, and I would love to have a finished livingroom for all of us to sit in! Mike promised to paint the place this past weekend (he’s so awesome!), if I could decide on a paint color by then. After a near breakdown at the hardware store, we finally settled on three colors…Bright White (for the doors and trim), Profession (a light grey/tan color), and Chicken Wire (a greyish, greenish, blue). There was much amusement had over the names of the colors. The painting was all finished in one day, thanks to the help of some great friends.
And, you will never ever believe this, but I finally bought some fabric for curtains! I’ll be making those this weekend, so look for pictures next monday!
When I think about the week to come, I can’t help but mentally back away in dread. So much to do, so little time!! Besides the usual (or not so usual, if you are me) laundry, groceries, dinners, and dusting, I want to make sure everything is organized and clean for when my family arrives next monday. And yes, that means tackling the dreaded craft room, which I have not talked about here due to embarrassment. I also want to hang some pictures around the house so that the newly painted walls have a chance to shine! I am also hoping that over the next few days I can take some time to relax with Mike and enjoy the season before it passes us by. It only comes around once a year, after all.
How are you preparing for the holidays? Are you remembering to take some time to relax?
