It's finally here. The first day of summer vacation. And I was wide awake at 5:00. Seriously? That's not even fair! Especially not after all the mornings I had to drag my butt out of bed after mulitple reset alarms just to make it to work on time. But here I am.
It's actually good that I went ahead and got up because I have my work cut out for me. My house is in a state. And no, Sheena, I don't mean how it normally looks. It is much worse than that. It would seem that having spent the last four weeks in almost constant motion on work things, I kind of forgot about my house. And messy doesn't even begin to cover where we are. So, I'm going to start with a deep cleaning and move on to some summer renovations that have needed to happen for some time, but now I have the time and resources (thank you, second job!) to do something about them. Some of them are simple and some will require my dad or a lot of YouTube and Young House Love videos. But I feel like good things are on the horizon for this old house.
I will be updating you on the changes I'm making this summer as we go along. Last summer, it was my bedroom (which still needs a few minor touches) and this year it's my bathroom. Mercifully, it's small and should only take a week or so once I get started. But that's not the end of my big ideas...stay tuned!
