You may or may have not noticed the countdown widget on the right side of the page. It is my reminder to get off of the computer, because I have a lot of work to do before my mother-in-law arrives for a visit. The countdown days have been fluctuating, because I didn't have an exact date of arrival. She is making a sort of round robin of sibling visits, and so there were a lot of households' plans to consider and schedule around. Her arrival date here is pretty firmly set at Sept 17th now.
I really have been doing things to get ready...probably nobody but me could possibly tell by looking. But maybe soon.
We've been using an antique headboard in our room, but I want to move it to the guest room. The round mirror in the photo above (which has been sitting on the floor for about a year and a half) is going to go over our bed, and eventually I would like to make an upholstered headboard for us.
The guest room was freshly painted right before we started on the kitchen remodel, and I never got around to adding the finishing touches, so there's a lot of that to do.
Here's a partial accountability list:
fill and replace above as necessary
finish quilt for bed?
put up new shower curtain rod
clean office desk
(need to retreat while m-i-l & dh watch baseball every night)
dispose of old magazines...
caulk kitchen seams I missed previously
(m-i-l won't be able to reach built in)
Yeah. That should keep me busy for the next three weeks.
