You'd think, without three little kids underfoot, that we'd make better (and quicker) progress on the home improvement projects around here. I guess maybe it's not so exciting the second, third, fourth time that we're doing something in the bathroom... it seems more like a chore than a fun project. I'm hoping that the excitement builds.
Maybe it's time to move.
(I can't believe I just said that!)
There are too many things vying for our time, and I guess that's a good thing.
Plus, I am so over summer right now. The extreme heat has passed but that doesn't mean it's not still hot, and the humidity is even harder (for me) to handle. It stifling, and just saps all the energy and will to do anything.
I'm supposed to participate in a charity bike ride tomorrow! Fifty miles was the initial goal, 25 miles seems more reasonable given the lack of ANY bike riding around here lately. I dunno. We'll see. Thunderstorms are also in the forecast.
So, I'm mostly responsible for growing the bathroom project -- if we're going to do This (the toilet) then when should do That (the floor) and, really, That Other Thing (painting) needs to be done, too. Rusty realized that one of Those Other Things is some plumbing pipes that should be replaced. And we may as well replace the light fixtures. I'm going to make new window coverings, too, and repurpose the fabric from the ones that were screwed up last year.
I think that's it. I know it's dated, but I'm still kind of sorry to see that stencil go. I can't wait 'til it's all finished!

Almost everyone I ask: "I won't know until it's finished!"
Gah! I can't believe this. Sometimes I hate it, sometimes I love it -- and that keeps me going. The "meh" I felt about the earlier combo was the intolerable feeling.
So, I won't know for sure until it's finished!! I'm closing in on the striping, so it shouldn't be too much longer.

I may have my Project Spectrum project figured out for July:Blue and it will involve sewing! I've actually been gearing up for some of that -- looking at patterns, buying some fabric and a new iron, and working on a place to set up other than the kitchen table.
