Full Days

If I didn’t know better, I’d think it was spring out there. Today we had a high in the low 40s and tomorrow we are supposed to be close to 50 degrees. It even is starting to smell like spring, as the ground is not as frozen with these warm sunny days. It’s so early yet though – my logical side knows that we have plenty of time yet for some of that white stuff to grace us with a winter coating. I will continue to enjoy every one of these springlike days, until the real season of spring comes along.

Our days are chock full of activity, but I can’t really list what we’re getting accomplished with our time. Of course, work takes up its usual majority of the week, and now that we have added five hours/week at the gym…well, I am still adapting to that. But we are determined to stick with it, as we are both feeling so much better. Even with only 2 and a half weeks under our belt.

IMG_1415Harry started the bathroom prep last weekend. The change is not going to be nearly as dramatic as it was with the upstairs bathroom. We painted this room only last year, so we are hoping that the wall color will go alright with the new floor. If not, painting this room (again) could still be added back on to the “list”. The toilet came out with no issues, thank goodness. So we don’t have to make any further major purchases to do the bathroom makeover.

IMG_1416On Sunday, we worked out in the garage. You may recall when Harry built these shelves. (haha if you do, you have a better memory than I do, because I just looked back and I couldn’t find the pictures.) But take my word for it, Harry built these shelves out in the garage, sometime in 2010, I believe. They had gotten filled up over the past year and a half. Well, on Sunday we got out there and cleared them off!! The section near Harry is where we are starting to gather some of the supplies that we will want to keep. So we emptied it out first, and then filled it back up! In love



Come spring, we are going to have our work cut out for us. Because most of this stuff still has to find its new home.





We have a lot to do in 244 days!!


  1. Even after the time comes to put the house on the market you'll still be working on it.

    That's what happened to us.

    Once it is all finished and gone your heads will still be spinning for a while after, but it'll be worth it.

    It's about time.

  2. You guys are moving right along. Good for you! All this nice weather is sure helping.

  3. Sounds like a real good plan. That time will dwindle down before you know it. We have most of our "market ready" things done. Although we are just finishing up putting ceramic tile down in both bathrooms which was not on our things to do.
