This weekend I tackled some little things off of My To Do list.
I painted the bathroom radiator & repaired and painted the kitchen window.
|Sorry this quality is bad. I'l try to fix it and re-upload, but I'm working on a deadline today.|
And a during. What? You don't paint with a baby strapped to you?
Mina is proving to be a very different baby than Franca. Or more honestly stated: my life with an infant is much different than it was with Franca.
With Franca I had a real 3 month maternity leave that I dedicated to getting her on a real routine. She was a very easy baby. Predictable. Alert. Calm.
With Mina, I have no maternity leave. I'm still working, plus minding an almost 3 year old and trying to get a house ready to sell. Not so much dedication to an infant routine. ;(
That's why I'm really looking forward to next week. I'm going to have some toddler-free downtime. While I should dedicate this to Mina, I've also planned to tackle some of the other To Do's because that's just how I roll.
On the list is:
- stain floor patches in dining room, back porch, kitchen, and back doors.
- stain back doors.
- stain & install kitchen base & door trim.
I'd love to also paint the parlor ceiling from orange to white as recommended by Realtor (sheds a tear), but that might be too much to ask of myself.
Wish me luck!
