May, that is.
Seriously? It’s the end of May already? And I’ve only blogged four times (including this post)?!
Oy. So much for weekly Remodel Mondays. Or weekly anything.
I feel like all I have been doing this month is unpacking/cleaning, finishing small projects at the house, laundry, and working on a paper I’m trying to finish up from my PhD research.
And, really, who wants to hear about any of that?
The remodel part of the house project was really neat… it was easy to photograph and to see changes from week to week. But now? Once the dresser is moved in, it’s just 7 loads of laundry, and then all the clothes are put away. Nothing to photograph except the dresser (that looks the same) and the empty boxes lying around.
Well, unless I happen to catch the laundry room in the middle of things… Load number 5 of the day is clean and folded, there’s laundry going in both the washer and dryer right now, and two more baskets of dirty clothes on the shelf. Yikes!
Why so much laundry? We’ve had a bunch of clothes and linens stored in the garage in various kinds of plastic tubs for 6 months. Technically, they’re clean, but they’re just a little bit icky. So, laundry room to the rescue!
We’re at the awkward stage of the home remodel where it feels like I’m putting in a lot of time and energy for not a lot of visible progress. But, when I open up that closet and see the full shelves, there’s my feeling of accomplishment! I guess.
Seriously, though, we’re to the touch-up-the-paint and treat-the-cedar-posts part of the remodel/move in. Projects that take a lot of sweat equity but really don’t photograph that well in an impressive before/after shoot.
And then I did more laundry. And took a nap.
