You would think that not working and being home ALL. DAY. LONG I would have plenty of time to blog and do fun, creative projects.
But I don’t.
In fact, some days I wonder how I ever managed to keep our house in order and take on the projects we did in our kitchen and bathrooms plus work full time. I guess you just learn to adjust to your situation to make everything work. And there have definitely been a few adjustments in our new daily lives.
I spend a majority of most days reading, taking quizzes and studying. I am 20 hours into my real estate courses… only 130 more to go!
Another chunk of my day is spent
staring at doing dishes. Since we don’t have the convenience of a garbage disposal at this house, and our dishwasher is actually a dishdirtier, this small task takes way longer than I’m used to it and I dread it everyday. I tend to let a few days pile up at a time, which is probably worse in the end, but I can’t stand doing it every day I wake up.
This is how the hubby and I spend time together now. I’m the one taking the picture from the stand, he’s the one on the field coaching. Hey, proximity = quality time, right?
And of course, the dogs are adjusting too. Bronx is really having a hard time with settling into the new house.
And poor Torre is subject to her tired daddy’s shenanigans. Yup, I just used the word shenanigans.
But at least she gets a little lovin’ from her momma. These are some sweet moments that we share together.
Anyways, that’s what our days are filled with right now. There are a few projects in the works, including a painting project where I get to test out the new ScotchBlue™ Edgelock Painter’s Tape, and we are trying to slowly clean-up our backyard to make it a little more hang-out friendly.
Until then though, I’m probably pinning more than I’m blogging, and definitely more than I’m studying. Shhh… don’t tell the hubs!
