I know I have been pretty quiet around here for the last few weeks, but I have some really good news to share! And that will also explain why I haven’t written much lately. We found out last month that we’re expecting again! Cecilia’s little brother or sister will be due in January, and I must admit that the first trimester has been rather rough.
There are also some other things growing around here! While many of my plants have fallen victim to the triple digit heat around here, my zucchini and tomatoes are still hanging in there! I will need to get some more soil for one of my garden plants, and replace the basil and some of my pepper plants.
Since I’m lucky enough to have a few months off school, I have been lounging around my house and eating when I can, while everything else has sort of been pushed to the side. But dang it – I needed some rest! Now that I’m feeling better, it’s time to get back into my groove while the gettin’s good.
There are some projects that I want to finish before school starts again in August, and I wanted to share them with you so there was some sort of accountability:
- Finish painting house
- Fix faucet
- Fix light fixtures
- Put faceplates back on all outlets
- Restore Cecilia’s bookshelf
- Change window coverings
- Work on backyard garden – get soil, change out dead plants, fill old planters
- Work on front yard – pull weeds, change out plants
- Clean out craft room – move to back house, transform room into nursery
- Clean and organize Cecilia’s room
- Paint kitchen table
I realize there’s a lot there, but I’m giving myself (and any nice family and friends I have) two months to get it done. I realize there will be small projects here and there, but I want the major stuff done so I won’t be going crazy during school and the last few months of my pregnancy.
I mean…summer cleaning is a thing, right?
