I am in the mood for cleaning, so yesterday I got out my notebook and wrote down everything that needed to be done to every room. Mainly so Randall could see it and give me a helping hand. HAHA! Yeah right huh?
You may not know that I hate cleaning. My cleaning considers of stacking the mess into a neat pile. Not too great huh? I keep my house looking good enough, but I wish it was perfect like most people's house. I don't think I can do that watching children all week long though. Ruthie is pretty good at picking up and putting things back, so I can't complain about her.
Anyways, I got our bedroom mostly done. I cleaned windows, the dresser, tv, sidetables, gun cabinet, and my jewelry box. The blinds were clean enough. I plan on doing baseboards, the ceiling fans, and organizing the closest. Fun fun I tell you! Actually, I am looking forward b/c our room already feels much better.
We plan on rearranging our living room again. I want it back the way it was before winter hit. When winter hit, we had to put the wood stove in, and I hate where our couch is. Plus, there isn't any room for our coffee table right now. When we rearrange it, we will have lots more room!
Randall is trading a guy some headphones for some laminate flooring. I hope it's enough to do the back bedroom. We don't use most the rooms in our house, such as the back bedroom, nor the 3 rooms upstairs. So, we plan on laying this laminate flooring in the back bedroom b/c it has AWFUL carpet. It's so embarrassing I won't even explain it....seriously!
The main reason I want to get started on the back bedroom is b/c Randall and I finally discussed trying to conceive our next child. We both talked about March of this year, back in December, but I changed my mind, which is odd, b/c I am always the one pushing. I just felt like we both needed to find a church, find ourselves, and make some progress in our marriage. I feel like we accomplished all of those. It's an amazing feeling. We talked about trying in a few months, like May/June. We might change our mind, but for right now we will try soon. I want to start on the room before we even start trying, so here is our chance!
It's finally the weekend. It's been a long week. I have been working on losing weight. (Yes, again) I just felt like after we talked about another baby, I had a lot of work to do on my exterior. It sucks, but hey, I need to right?! I weigh 10 lbs more than after I had Ruthie. Sad to say, but it is true. I am gulping down the water and doing exercise when I can. I have taken the kids for walks down the dirt road and they love that! Today I pulled out the gazelle and did 1.5 miles and did some crunches. Lets just hope it all works!
Have a great weekend everyone!
