Chores

This week I have started a new way of cleaning. I wasn’t cleaning on the weekends when Hubby was home, because who would want to do that?

I knew I had to figure out a way that I wasn’t feeling overwhelmed. I would sit on the couch on Monday wondering where to start. I would try to bust out everything an hour before Hubby came home, because I knew then I had a time limit but then that became stressful.

While exploring Pinterest, I found a chore list, and Wow, it works! This is my first week starting it, so it has taken a lot longer than the 30 minutes, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel hallway. I can feel it working! Even my Hubby says “Wow, I might keep you for today.” ~laughs~

Another thing, I don’t feel like an overpowering Mom anymore. I let Jade pull out all the toys she wants, when I begin cleaning I make her put up her toys where they belong. If she spills hr dry cereal in the floor, I assist her with the vacuum.

If you start this way of cleaning – Don’t think it will just start working over night. The first week just worry about marking the stuff off the list as you do them, don’t worry about the time. You will see how easy it is to maintain in the first few days.

Happy Cleaning

Living Room Makeover

Living Room Makeover – One piece of furniture at a time πŸ™‚

When I was getting into this, well, when I was thinking about it…
I didn’t think about the heat, nor the time haha!!

I did decide not a flat black, but a semi-gloss black. That way the semi-gloss adds as protection, but the wood still looks nice and not like plastic πŸ™‚

It took me about 3 to 4 hours to do this, and I didn’t even need to sand it. The only reason why it took so long was 90 degree heat + no shade = your insides are melting or cooking away, either one lol!

So, here is my completion, and next time it will be the coffee table. I hope all of you have had a wonderful weekend, but unfortunately the weekend has came to an end, and now our week begins. To me; it is just another day to be smiling about. Have a wonderful Monday my friends.

3-4 hours of work, drowning in sweat and heat.. I think someone should kiss the painter πŸ™‚ (Which, on another hand, Hubby did help me)
~Thank You Hubby~

 

 

My Dream Come True

My Dream House

Wow, I have been thinking about this one since 2004.

It is a ranch style house with no “dog houses” on top. It has a straight roof, with a full front porch, and a big enough back porch. My yard is landscaped front and back. The back yard is fenced in for the dogs and all the kid toys are out back as well. There is a cedar type shed for hubby’s things, a garage that has a covered walkway to the side door of the house.

(it would look like this but a straight roof)

The outside would be either a moss green plank-board, or desert tan vinyl siding. The shutters would be black, as well as the window treatments. The front porch would be painted white. White posts, and a stained porch floor, or placed rock in smooth cement. Black iron thing to go on the columns of the porch to hang flowers from, the driveway would be poured cement lined with flowers on both side, also poured cement coming from the driveway to the front porch steps.

The back yard would have a pond with goldfish, and a swing set that would last forever, a tire swing hanging in the shade of a huge tree, and hanging just barely off the ground. There would be a sitting area with a grill with flowers all around for the feel of peace or romance, just whichever mood strike first. The back yard will be up for entertainment and playing as the front yard would be for the hammock laying as you read a great book, or for a quick nap.

When you walk into the inside it would be warm and inviting. There would be a double window when you walk in. The L-shape kitchen would be on your left, with an island that you could see from the living room. The flat screen would fit onto the wall so you can watch tv from the kitchen, and it would be an open floor plan. The Dining room would be to your right.
There would be 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths. The laundry room would be right beside the side door to go to the garage (which is a detached). The laundry room would be big enough to fold laundry, and house everything from the hot water heater, to the washing machine, and dryer, with a small sink just in case I might need to rinse off my shoes from being outside. One of the 4 bedrooms would be a type of office/workout room.

The Master bedroom would be big. It would have double french doors and have a walkway to the porch outside. The bathroom would be connected to the bedroom, with just a door separating them. There would be a jetted tub, with a window, the shower would be big enough for two, and it would be made with slate rock. The walk-in closet would be right outside the bathroom, of course one side mine, one said his, haha!

I shall continue dreaming πŸ™‚ Maybe one day this will be my Dream Come True.

Job is never done

To begin this lovely day I am posting a picture of what I did yesterday. I still have work to do, but it is getting done πŸ˜€ I am so happy that the projects I am working on is getting done before my eyes. I think I have 3 projects going on at once, since it is so hot outside I can’t finish my landscaping outside.

So, yesterday I hung up a curtain in my bathroom (there was a mirror missing, making it look off). I still need to put up my other curtain on the other side, but here is what it looks like now.

Now, all I like is Redo the pictures on the right, the curtain on the other side to make it even, and vacuum. Then I will like painting the mirror sliding closet doors frames black, and finding a huge picture to put over our bed, which I will post picture when I get that done and when I completely finish my bathroom which is halfway in my bedroom, ha!

Project 2

Project 1 is my landscaping and I will post pictures and update on that later.

I hope all my readers are having a glorious day!
