Spring Break and a BREAK

Monday was the official beginning of Spring Break for our family. It doesn't seem like that big of a deal since my oldest is just in half-day kindergarten and the other two are home. ;-) But it really does feel like a break!



 

Working on our entryway



It's been awhile since I last posted, but for good reason...I've needed a break! I feel like we're in the calm before the storm, officially forecasted to begin next week and projected to last about, ohhh, 2.5 months. Yup...all those life things will be converging into craziness. Swim lessons, gym, ballet, vacations, getting in shape for vacations (because getting in shape for WA summers is a bit of a dichotomy), conventions, training, dr. appts., meetings, volunteering, family events, registrations, recitals, etc. Not to mention date nights, girl's nights, dinners with friends, bridal showers, baby showers (yeah, we're a tad social) ;-). Oh darn, and yes...laundry, vacuuming, grocery shopping, laundry, and laundry.




Never a dull day!




Some of you ask me how I do it. To that, I say, I'm backing off so I don't.go.insane. Amidst ALL of this and then some, I'm trying to put a significant effort into getting things done around our home in terms of design and organization and focus more on learning about nutrition in relation to my kidney and thyroid problems. Seriously people, I've only had two coffees within the past 6 weeks - a drastic change from a daily (sometimes twice daily - yes, you can cringe) Venti Quad Shot (the super sugary yummy kind). The weird part about that...it's been easy. Don't hate me please!



I have a couple custom orders lined up, some tables and an armoire to get refinished and sold, but other than that, I'm not shopping much at the moment for selling items. I am, however, getting ready to work on a couple pieces for our home, build new beds for the girls (maximizing space), and gathering pieces for the Beach House.


OHHHHHH, the Beach House....yes.

Well - we're in the middle of an approval waiting on financing. Once that goes through, you will see a lot more blogging on the process of getting it ready as a vacation rental. Furniture pieces, diy, shopping, etc. I seriously value your input! There may be a vote or two in there on your opinion. It's going to be insanely crazy busy as this will be happening with all.of.the.above. :-)Yes...I'm currently taking a break before the storm.


I'll be around...if it's quiet here, don't worry. I'm certainly not off relaxing in Hawaii (six more weeks!)

Whew! You are one busy girl ;) Too bad there is not more time in the day. The new rental sounds exciting!!

I think the highlights are spell check. If you don't go hit "ignore" for each one when they pop up, they stay highlighted. Don't ask me how I know this ;) lol.
