While everyone else was off making merry, The Mister and I spent the holiday weekend working our behinds off.
This is what started it. Are you familiar with the children's book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie? That's how it all rolled out around here. First I wanted to go buy this wall unit from Ikea for the living room so I would have a place for my million and one projects. I'm tired of my house looking like a cluttered mess. I want a place for everything and everything in a place. This oughta do it.
The Mister said okay but first I had to refinish our terrible looking oak floors. Then we realized it made even more sense to go ahead and paint before we did the floors. Ugh.
Packing, scrubbing, sanding, painting, mopping. Three days of hard work and all for nothing. When I went to buy my shelving unit Ikea didn't have it. I'd have to order it and have it delivered for a small fortune. Darn.
