The house is still a disaster area, but I planned a few months ago to give myself a little staycation after school was finished. Time to regroup and work on a few things around the house that I feel I’ve neglected… with nearly an entire week away from the office. That means it’s dining room go time, baby! I’ll get a small taste this week of what it would be like as a full-time blogger. Ha! If only it weren’t for this pesky mortgage ;)

And now that the guest bathroom is complete (er, as close to completion as it will be for a while), I feel… so relaxed. It’s very weird to get ready for work in the morning with everything in one clean spot. Not as much chaos. It’s funny to find myself having to adjust to things being exactly how I want them. I have been finding extra space everywhere now that I have a proper place to put extra toiletries (everything was shoved and crammed into the linen closet since the master bath was half-demo’d and the guest bath was the “project room”). Pretty sure this adjustment thing won’t be a problem for long.
And speaking of relaxing, I also plunked down a few coins during Black Friday to get myself a new cushy mattress pad and topper. The timing might be bad on this one since I’ll have four days of freedom and an extra-comfy bed might make the struggle to get up and going on the dining room even tougher, but I consider this one very overdue upgrade. I’ve also bought new pillows, so hopefully I can take a moment from all of my laundry catch up to grab a proper updated photo of the master bedroom.
Progress, I tell ya.
