I may be a bit late, but at least I’m motivated.
This morning, I attacked the kitchen like I haven’t done in a very long time. I washed the walls and even got out the Murphy’s soap to scrub down the cabinets. Several years of dropped sippy cups have done evil things to my house! There were little milk splashes everywhere!
I’m on a mission. I’d like to say that I’m just so motivated to have a clean house, but that just isn’t true. Honestly, I want to get the house in order so I can feel better about spending a lot of time doing home improvement stuff. It’s a sickness. I love going to the hardware store. Sometimes, Eric and I go there on our date nights. Really.
I loaded up the kids yesterday to go buy paint for my front door and the picnic table. The nice folks at Lowes stared a bit, but were very helpful. Am I the only mom of 4 littles who drags the kids along to help pick out weather-stripping and paint?
Anyway, the paint I picked is a very luscious green. When Eric asked what color I picked, he looked awfully skeptical. Green?! Trust me, it’ll look great. If it doesn’t, I’ll just paint it again. I’m pretty sure he thinks I’m crazy but just lets me do these things to make me happy. Some girls like jewelry, I like home improvement. My honey is very wonderful and patient. I can’t wait to start painting…
So, watch out house. I’m spring cleaning like a crazy woman so that I can paint to my heart’s content. I’ll be sure to take before and after pictures to share.
Anybody like cleaning but hate painting? I think we’d get along great since I hate cleaning but love painting. We could trade. ;) Have a very wonderful weekend, everybody!
