Oh, yes. Thank goodness its Friday! This has been one long week. It does not seem possible that it was actually only a four day week. I’m pooped.

It also does not seem possible that next week is Thanksgiving already. Though I am very, very much looking forward to both the holiday and the extended weekend! I need some down time in a big way.

I realized last night that we haven’t even been in our new home for three months. It feels like forever. That’s probably because it seems we’ve gone non-stop ever since we got there. It really is so much fun! At the old house, I’d get home and just chill. At this house, when I get home, I want to do “something” so its gotten so that I’m not relaxing like I used to and I think its caught up to me. Yes, relaxing next Thursday is going to be wonderful!

What have we accomplished, you ask? Most credit, of course, goes to Brian since his day ends much earlier than mine but I do pitch in when I can. Our laundry area now has a fresh coat of paint on the ceiling and walls, a new tile floor, new baseboard and, of course, a new washer and dryer! These were much needed because what was left were old. Very old.

We also ordered, picked up and assembled our bar stools for the kitchen island. We ended up paying a little more than we had hoped but these will last a long time. I was going to invest in less expensive ones figuring if they lasted a couple years, that would be good enough but it became very clear that you get what you pay for.

Today, Brian will be picking up the louver doors for the laundry area. We did this at the last house, too, and I see many a night ahead of us staining and urethaning same – a long, tedious task but the end results are worth it.

Me and my fairy blog mother are also trying to figure out why I don’t seem to be able to post photos here so, stay tuned – with a little fairy dust sprinkling over my computer, maybe you’ll actually get to see some photos of this home soon!

So, that’s my life in a nutshell. What have you been up to?
