Weekend off with hubby

Sunday, August 10, 2014

Ahhhh ... it's a rare event in our household when my husband and I have a Saturday and Sunday off together. The last one we had off together was June 21st ... I know cuz it was our 10 year anniversary ... and we moved the whole weekend. We have GOT to figure out how to celebrate better! emoticon

This weekend we did something equally awe inspiring ... Cleaned up and organized the garage at the new house! emoticon Ok, maybe that isn't exactly how I was feeling by the end of the day yesterday but I DID feel better after it was all done. We moved everything so I could sweep and mop (YES, I mopped my garage! I have no idea what the previous people did in the garage but they left huge sticky, smelly spills that ran all over! I hated to go in the garage - especially if it was warm outside - because it smelled so bad). After some cleaning and getting some shelving units in place, the garage is awesome! Lots of bedding that was stacked in the garage from my husband's family who came in from KY for Allen's memorial was placed in those amazing vacuum bags and now is stored under our bed! Who knew those things work!!!? I love it! A friend came today and picked up boxes ... that visual clutter is gone ... AND I figured out that the baking stuff I can't fit in my kitchen fits quite nicely in a 3 drawer plastic chest that we were going to get rid of. It can live in the garage which makes everything still easily accessible for when I am in the mood to bake ... READ: HOLIDAYS!

Tim and I seriously need to figure out a better way to celebrate time off together! emoticon

Hope you had a fabulous weekend ...

    when mundane things are done as a team, they are much more fulfilling in a number of ways. I think it was a weekend very well-spent!

    At least there is visable proof of how you spent the time :) I need to tackle the garage at some point. We were happy to clear a path...

    But it was something that you really needed done so it was nice you could work on it together!

    Sometimes organizing is just what it takes to lift the fatigue that's bearing down on one. Clutter can do that to you! Well done!
