I let the Holiday madness get the best of me and I forgot about my chronicles. In hindsight I am regretful however, if you learn nothing from your shortcomings they are in fact failures. If you learn something they are experiences. So, this is me learning something from my epic
I really do enjoy the time it takes to plan, write and edit these blog posts. Time was very thin this past month. Ya know why?
1. The mister and I hostedThanksgiving
2. Preparing for holiday traveling
3. Going to every wrestling match for C
4. Working on a BIG project at work that kept us at the office until all hours
5. Tediously creating, planning and constructing in the basement.... 2/3 done by the way!!!
I know the first one is old news, but it was 4 days of a full house and all the mayhem that goes along with that. Good mayhem, but mayhem nonetheless. We spent 6 days in Florida over Christmas and that seriously was a month in the works. Getting the house ready to be empty, planning for boarding the cat, etc... The wrestling season is officially in full swing and we spend alot of time hollering from the bleachers for our #1 son. When we are not cheering on the IB Tigers we are at work. Working. Working on a big project that requires many late nights. Getting home at 7 pm and trying to cook and launder is AWFUL! But.....Remember that inspiration board for the basement that I posted here a while back? Well we are 2/3 of the way through making that a reality. Wanna see?
Well the basement was a concrete
First step was to wall off the laundry room. Pictures of this will come later as it is a disaster zone at the moment. Second, we took out the old wood burning stove and replaced it with a 42" Fireplace. I cannot even tell you how easy this was. I went to Chicago one morning and when I got back the next day it was done! But seriously, this was a fireplace kit that was all prefab'd. Mr. Dubetter did awesome work getting it in place and what not!
Can't wait to share more progress. I have lots to blog about and will do so regularly. I swear it.
Did you tackle any projects over the holidays? Or maybe you dreamed up some for the new year.... do tell!
