Things are moving forward with the house! We’re looking at closing at the end of this month. This is getting exciting because now I’ll be able to start keeping an eye out for furniture deals! I literally can’t wait to find a beat of dresser and repurpose it. Anyway, we’ve been pretty busy with the process, so my DIY projects have been put on hold the past couple of weeks.
And when I do have a spare minute, I’m trying to SLEEP. Sweet little Anna…she’s a happy little baby and one of the loves of my life, but she never sleeps! And this full-time working mama is extremely tired. I’ve literally had about 4 hours of good sleep in the past 3 days.
And let me tell you, it’s not easy being on my A-game with 160 middle-schoolers. Luckily, I’ve built great rapport with them and they have been awesome. I think they just really enjoy seeing me “slap-happy”. Ha.
However, I HAVE been adding to my “to-do” pile of projects. I’ve got about 5 that are ready for my attention. Here’s my current list of projects:
- Part 2 of my mason jar wall décor
- Revamping an old vase with some spray-paint
- Making my own light fixture (Think twine!)
- Fixing up shelving units with baskets I found at a thrift store
- Sewing a toddler headband (Buying those things gets expensive )
My goal is to finish at least 3 of these by the end of May. I’m trying to be realistic, but still achieve goals! I’m one of those people that HAS to make a visual to-do list because I immediately feel the need to cross things off of it. 😉
So, that’s life as of late. We’re incredibly sleepy BUT incredibly blessed. We have 2 healthy, happy little ladies and in a couple of weeks, a house.
We’re ready to plant our roots and make this house into our home.
Are you a goal-setter? How do you keep yourself accountable to fulfilling your goals?
