Taking my first sick day since that whole bronchitis episode. So thankful for snuggly pups who keep me company, surprise visits from sweet little cousins (which will be a highlight of the whole week) and warm beds for sleeping when being awake is just too hard. #wintercoldforthewin
First things first, sorry for my absence this last week. Mike and I are in recovery mode from his Middle School Retreat last weekend and now we’re gearing up for round two with high school this weekend! It’s been one of those weeks…
Here are just a few of the highlights of our life lately..
We had a couple 70 degree days and this is where you could find the pup every single one of those days. He loves the sun.
My mom came and sacrificed a day of time to help me FINISH the trim in our house. Everything is officially WHITE! A little more than a year after I started, we can finally say that this huge project is completed.
This little one was an artist in a wax museum last week. She did such a good job and I’m so glad I was able to sneak over and see her.
Alf and I shared lots of afternoon snuggles on the cold days.
Mike’s retreat! We had 96 middle schoolers out at the woods… How we all made it home alive? I’ll never know. But seriously, it was a wonderful weekend filled with lots of fun, lots of worship, and lots of learning.
Alf gets three appearances this week! We had a dryer repair man come on Monday and this is where Alf camped out. He was sure that he didn’t like him, but unsure of how close to him he could get. Half in – Half out was his solution. I thought it was adorable… but if you look closely you can see the terror in his eyes.
And that’s our life lately. A lot of the same and we really really like it that way. We’re still pushing through with our February Savings Challenge and things are going well! I’m also working on some February goals and brainstorming goals for March. I’ll be back next week with some more updates.
Well, winter has come back to Kansas today. High of 72 last Sunday will hopefully keep spirits up until Spring.
But anyways, I am here to talk about our storage room.
It’s a great space with not much functionality.
But that changed in January! I have started making monthly goals – 3 or four bullet points of things to get done in the month. Last month I had “create storage shelves in storage room” and a few other things.
Sidenote: I checked off everything on my goal sheet. Yay!
This is our storage room before we moved in…
Now imagine lots of boxes and junk and a racket stringer and lots of boxes and lots of boxes in there and you’ll imagine what our storage room looked like before the storage shelves (I never took a picture)
I left Mike for two hours one afternoon with a new toy (a miter saw) and I came home to this…
Have I mentioned that I’m the luckiest?
We still have an empty box situation and those shelves are already full, but I love having this done – organized spaces make my heart happy.
Did you do any crazy organizing in January? Build anything fun?
