Whew! Hello all I feel like it has been forever since I last posted. However I made it to the other side of a very busy and eventful week. A couple weeks ago I shared that my roommate for three years was going to move out and another one was moving in… what I didn’t share was that we had all been living together since May!
As much as we all hid it, three people in a two person apartment for two months is hard on everyone involved. I know my new roomate was tired of sleeping in the living room and having to put her bed away every morning, and the introverted side of me was needing a some a lone time.
But this past week my roomate moved most of her stuff out, we gutted out the entire kitchen and cleanded and organized..I guess I never realized how much pantry stuff my mom went through growing up… because some stuff I didn’t realize had an experation dates, I though It just stayed in our pantry til needed. I was wrong, Very wrong. Oh the lessons we learn.
My goal this past week was to keep the home livable during chaos hoping it could be a place that everyone could still relax in even if it was a busy and sometimes overwhelming. I totally get this from mom. I think in past posts I refered to my dad performing in a band. I grew up living with my parents and the band members for the first part of my child hood. and Truthfully that could be a very messy and overwhelming situation, but mom always made sure that the house was home, and a place that we could relax. Actually she even man the tour bus and hotels feel homey when we traveled. It is something I am very thankful for and now Greatly Value.
So this week would get to the places I could clean and organize and I try to keep meals made. I continued picking projects to update my home, I made a new set of curtains out of a table cloth on Sunday, and had a pinterest fail 🙂
I wish I would have taken pictures of my pinterest fail, however I forgot. I attempted to make a fruit bowl out of twine and starch. It didn’t work. I think it failed because I used a heavier twine that almost looked like rustic rope. it was too thick and heavy to actually stiffen enough to hold the form of a bowl.
The rest of this week will be filled with packing, Sunday is my birthday and I get to take one of my clients to The Warped tour in Minneapolis, and then Monday morning my new roomate and I are driving back up to international fall to spend another week with my family.
I hope everyone is staying cool during this hot hot week!
