Y'all have been sooooo busy getting tons of things done. WWWOOOO HHHHHOOOOOOOO!! big happy smiles
Although I have not been on line, I have been super busy here too.
After being sick, I took the recovery time I needed and then we had a big storm, and a week and a half ago no power for 2 days, then the power finally came back on and the next day the modem died, then the blasted ATT would not help me get the system going again since I did not buy one from them(it was $30 less at best buy), so I had minimal computer access for the past 6 days. And on top of it, I have been working a lot and job hunting.
So.....my update on ROTM/ROTY progress.....
Outdoor projects are for the most part done. I have put in weedblock and mulch on one side of the house and along the back. The front yard gardeny areas all have mulch down, the gifted hosta has been split & planted along with 2 others I bought(for $2 at a yard sale), the plastic borders are down and I bought some pavers to edge it with, the solar lights are also in place and I also put some flowers along the edges by the porch. And the ground cover I was gifted is starting to take nicely too.
The laundry/storage room behind the garage has been swept, dusted and reorganized, gaining me some much needed floor space and providing another couple of boxes of stuff for the someday yard sale.
I have swept and started the cleanup in the garage too and even that is starting to show.
The weekend long power outage gave me time to project/clean and continued into last week with me getting both the master and guest bedroom done top to bottom. With no power, there was not many distractions, so all beds were stripped & everything sat til power came on late Saturday for laundering....even the bed pillows & area rugs. I hung matchstick blinds & the rest of the pictures in the master, reorganized closets in both bedrooms, the armoire, and managed to toss several items of clothes and 5 pairs of shoes as well. I also did a thorough cleaning in the full and half baths, hung crutain rods in the guest room and main bath and even managed to sort through some papers and tossed them in the office. NO, the office did not get much attention.
I spent the day Sunday ironing(a task that I put off til I have no choice!), then cut down a window scarf and turned it into a curtain for the main bath. Have started a similar project for the guest room-the sheet is cut to size just not finished yet as I don't think I can get away with the iron on seam tape since this fabric is heavier.
I also had an interview for a job and got it. I will be starting in a part time position at the same warehouse store I was working at before but this time will be their employee, not the third party vendor. It will be 3 days a week for now, but will help supplement the other job as the commission only is not good in this economy. I am really disappointed in it as what they told me is not the reality of the earnings and I just don't have the time to wait for it to pan out.
as far as the yard sale, I may just try to do it this weekend. The roomie and her beau will be gone, and since my brother spent last weekend and Memorial Weekend with me, he will be with my sister for the 4th. With no one around, I may be able to get more done. And when I start the new job late next week, I will be working 7 days a week til one of the two becomes a major money source(can we say....learning to rebudget time and fast!!)
