I think it came out really nice too (more on that in a few).
I did good last week with exercise. Walked every day M-F and then did a bit extra some days (Mr. Skinny Geek walked with me twice! - It's a start!), and some days not. (I miss my little green men from Endomondo!) and since I can't get Garmin Connect calendar to work right with my activities, you'll just have to take my word for it. The weekend however, was so jam packed that I didn't quite get any exercise in. Unless you count painting, because my arms sure are sore today from doing that.
The good news is that we are on the downhill stretch with The Great Bedroom Remodel of 2014 and the end is in sight. Plus there isn't much left for me to help with so I can get back to my routine. And tennis is back in full this week as well. All the instructors are back and I'm ready! I'm glad I was able to get at least 2 practices in with some of the girls in the two weeks we've been off.
I bemoaned about the laundry and I swear, I don't ever want to see piles like this ever again.
|15 total - there are some hidden in the "nook" area.|
I managed throughout the weekend to get it mostly done but I still have about 4 loads to go. I have yet to hang up anything though since the room is still in chaos.
I had to even wash off all the coat-hangers. Chris still insisted that we could "dust everything off". I laughed and told him that just handling these clothes for 3 hours had me sneezing about 37 times. The he made the snarky comment that the floor wouldn't sand itself, to which I replied that clothes don't wash themselves either. That shut him up. :)
The rest of Friday was more laundry while Chris applied the 1st of 2 coats of stain down on the floor. Then after we went to Lowe's and got the paint then promptly crashed (this was like 10pm).
Saturday was busy too. Chris applied Coating #2 and then we hit the ground running with errands, meal planning, grocery shopping and going out to my parent's house to borrow painting supplies.
Sunday was meal prep and then painting. Originally, Chris was going to go ahead and seal the stain down but we actually read the back of the bottle and it said to let it dry for 24 hours. So we decided to go ahead and paint that afternoon. Got all my food made (ended up with 5 lunches and 4 dinners and all my snacks divvied out).
Then we set to painting.
I'll post an updated pic once we do get everything finished (floor, putting baseboards back, etc.) but I am in love with the color. It looks more purple/lilac here but there are some grey bits too!
The cats enjoyed the heck out of the canvas tarp we put down and Doyle got a little aggressive. (I wonder if the tarp had catnip in it?)
Anyway that was our busy but lovely weekend! Oh we started watched Parks and Recreation too in the few moments we had a break. Heard good things about it plus it has Chris Pratt in it. (Star-Lord/Peter Quill from Guardian's of the Galaxy!)
Did you guys have a good weekend? Do anything fun? I know some of you went to GenCon! I want deets!!!
