1.) The DIY of our master bedroom is coming together. I'm still a bit nervous and we're doing testing of the stain dilution now. Once these dry, we will make the executive decision as to what dilution of the stain to do. We're also picking out paint tonight and hopefully we can start on that by Sunday. Chris and I are having a 'discussion'. He wants like a dark green (that's soooo 90s) and I'm hoping for a mix between lilac/lavender purple with greyish hues. Hard to describe. So we will have to make a decision. I personally think that green and brown floor (technically espresso colored) will look like a forest. We will see who wins this battle. LOL Expect a mega epic DIY post once we finish this.
2.) This Superhero Workout Game came across my facebook feed yesterday and as soon as it becomes available for Android, I think I'm going to give it a whirl. It's made by the same people that made Zombies, Run! So therefore it should be awesome just on principal!
3.) The only major catastrophe that has happened since our bedroom remodel has been my closet. Now, my husband and his brother are smart men. But sometimes men have the dumb. This was one of those times. They had taken the closet door off the hinges when applying the concrete and didn't put the door back. They sanded the concrete to smooth it out........without removing the clothes inside. Mr. Skinny Geek says to just dust everything off and go, but that's microscopic concrete! So guess I'll be doing a shit-ton of laundry this weekend.
|Hard to tell but there is a fine white coating. Over every damn thing and that is not the whole closet either! This will be about 12 loads worth, plus all our normal laundry so, um, 15 ish total.|
The 'plateau' I've been on is bullshit. Honestly and seriously. When I take a step back and look at it realistically, yes, the weight hasn't changed, yes, I'm still an exercising fool but also, YES I can be doing better with food. And beer. What I've been doing lately is maintaining. I need to get back to the basics of what I was doing before. So here are my goals. Our first challenge (pre-challenge challenge) was to write your goals down and stick them on the fridge. Here are mine:
Look at #1 and cry with me. Farewell sweet flowing nectar of the gods. See you in 6 weeks!
(I finished off this one last night. Last of the 6 pack so I'm not going to buy more so technically it will be 6 weeks and 4 days til I *can* have another).
Oh and by the way, if you want to join the challenge, there is still time! Head on over to Fleurty's page and let her know!
5.) This sweet looking kitty. Don't let him fool you. He is evil incarnate.
This cat right here. Since Chris and I have been sleeping in the middle of our kitchen/dining room/living room. Everytime we roll over, or get up to pee, or just stir he decides "Oh! Mommy and Daddy are getting up so it must be time for food!" SOOO when we don't actually get up and feed him, he finds paper. And then he starts ripping the paper. Then he looks at us to see if we heard. Then he rips more paper. Until we get up and yell at him. 5 minutes later.... deja vu. For a week and a half now, our sleep has been interrupted by Sir Doyle of Douche-iness.
We even make sure to hide all traces of paper before we go to bed each night. He must have a secret stash somewhere.
Have a good weekend, everyone (making this Forest Green to deter my hubby should he see this...see, isn't it ugly?)
