Oy Vey! What a weekend we had! It went by so fast & I'm exhausted. We didn't have anything on the calendar as far as plans, but it was definitely a go, go, go type of weekend.
Friday we went to MJ's pub for dinner. Pretzel sticks and club wrap, with a yummy Strawberita. I hate to cook on Friday's so I was happy when Joe said he wanted to go out for dinner. We ate early, Joe went out for a few beers with a friend and I went to bed early. Like, 8 pm (my normal bedtime) early.
Saturday was a normal day of grocery shopping and lunch with my mom. I came home and decided to get crafty for about 15 minutes. I made a new wreath for my front door. We are showing the house a couple times this week (hooray!!) so we spent some time cleaning then we had to be at Home Depot to meet with the Millwright department to finalize on windows and interior/exterior doors. We were there for about 3 hours. It was overwhelming, but we are making progress! By the time we got outta there, we had to be at my dad's for my niece and nephews birthday party. After the birthday party Jessica and Mike came over and we drank homemade wine & chatted for a few hours. The entire day was non-stop! It was fun catching up with Jess and Mike. We sat around in our PJ's, talked, and watched old Chappelle's Show episodes & laughed our asses off. By the time we got to bed it was actually an hour later, so it ended up being about midnight. I couldn't believe we stayed up that late!
Sunday was another up early, work on cleaning, then an afternoon at Home Depot day. My house has never been as clean as it is now. I am a very organized person who believes everything has a place. I hate papers and random stuff laying around in places that they shouldn't be so our house is normally straightened up pretty well, but we really deep cleaned, threw away, and organized spaces that we haven't touched since we moved in in August 2012. I bought all kinds of fresh flowers at the grocery store, a new orchid, some daffodils, and a bouquet. I think fresh flowers really add a nice touch. Between the flowers and the deep scrubbing I feel like we are ready for spring. I want to open the windows already!
I seriously feel like my second home is going to be Home Depot. We are really saving a TON of money by shopping around for the best deal, but it is time consuming. We had another appointment at 11 today and we didn't leave until 4. We took about a half hour lunch break between appointments, but it was a looooongg day with the HD folks. We still have so much to think about. Little details like door knobs, and door swings I never even gave a thought about, now I'm an expert. We really have our work cut out for us and it has been tiring, but it has also been fun and will be well worth it!
AF better show up this week! I'm so ready to start this next cycle! I know adding a baby on top of building a house is going to be a huge undertaking (if it works out that way), but I'm up for the challenge and we are more than ready to be parents. Fingers crossed that we can start cycling again this week!
