Last week was intense, y’all. I didn’t keep track, but I probably spent something like 20+ hours researching/writing/talking about/answering emails about/”etcetera-ing” about my posts.
Plus, I was gone a lot more than usual, which means that my house is suffering. Pretty much every room has something at least a little off-kilter. Which means MAJOR catch-up this week.
Plus, I have TWO fitness launches to cram choreography and practice in for.
Plus, Shaun’s birthday is on Friday.
Plus, we have friends coming to stay this weekend.
Plus, we’re hosting a Super Bowl/joint birthday party (for Shaun and my brother)/ping pong tournament (yes, I know; that’s quite a combo) on Sunday.
In other words, we’re busy. I’m pushing down the rising panic that everything won’t get done by assuring myself that…everything won’t get done. And it will still be okay.
So, what better way to start off an insanely busy week but with a nice big LIST of things that I probably won’t have time to get to at all? (Can we say masochistic?)
Because it’s been far too long since I’ve updated my Project Elephant goals. And so, without further ado, I give you:
Every single one of these projects will be taking place in the sitting area that I showed you in that “imperfect room reveal” a little while ago.
Here’s a visual, in case you’re wondering:
You can only see the tiny corner of the laundry chute in this pic, but it needs a coat of paint as well.
And then, we have:
I like the current dresser color, but it just doesn’t pop in this room, so I’m going bold (can’t wait to show you!). Also, all of that ugly technology has got to go….somewhere (still working on that; my husband is frowning right now). Also, that huge expanse of wall needs something, no? I already have quite a few things to hang gathered together, but I’m terribly about actually getting them on the wall.
This window seat doubles as storage for blankets and board games, which is great, but no one ever sits on it. Not too surprising considering how uninviting that stiff, hard board looks. It definitely needs a nice cushion with some sort of fun pattern (I have a feeling I’ll be choosing from one of these), some pillows, and some lined curtains (for that awesome, “I’m going to close these and disappear into my own little magical world of knowledge and adventure,” feeling).
So, that’s what I hope to accomplish over the next several weeks. As always, I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
And now, I’d love to know…What projects are you chomping away at this week?
Are you as busy as I am? I think I’ll be breathing a big sigh of relief come next Monday.Like what you read? Like M is for Mama on facebook (pretty please?):
