Ya know, I read somewhere the other day that most people (namely mothers) need to embrace this time of year as a time for new beginnings.
I can relate.
They went on to say how so many people get wrapped up in January 1 being the “New Year” and time for new beginnings, and of course, resolutions.
Considering that is in the DEPTHS of winter (ugh) no fresh new change of season happening then, and also a time when starting fresh is actually rather difficult….
We need to embrace THIS time of year and for lack of better words, “Turn over a new leaf”.
Seasons change, the scenery changes, kids go off to school, we tend to begin cooking differently (less BBQ and more comfort foods) baking, etc etc. and it is a great time to plan a fall project.
I will do just that.
We have had a some-what long summer. Heat, flooding, etc etc…..yeah, rather trying if you ask me.
Don’t get me wrong, I will miss my kids as they head out to school on Wednesday. Likewise I am sure they will miss me. 🙂
It is high time we find our new routing once again. We are creatures of habit in this house and need to get back to “normal” Honestly, I completely embrace this time of year 100%.
And I plan on digging in DEEP. I have a basement to clean, an attic to clean, and basically reclaim my house once again.
I also have a fall project in mind.
I am going to RIP up old carpeting, and rather than to replace it with more, or another expensive type of flooring, I am willing to try something NEW…and very cost effective. (although labor intensive) grrrrr…..
I am gonna PAINT my hardwood floor in my bathroom. Yes . I . am.
Against my husbands better judgement, I am going to do this. I have thought about it for over a year. It is time.
Now, normally I would be very nervous to do this on HARDWOOD, but it is in such poor shape (if it is even doable) that it has to be covered in some way. I will not find out til I begin ripping carpet out. If it is not gonna work, then we are FORCED to go to Plan B. Anything is better than what is covering the floor now.
So…………I want to hear from you!!! Have you ever done such a thing?? or know anyone that has??? if so, I want to hear all about it. Please.
OR……….Join me, and find your OWN fall project. I am sure we can all think of plenty that needs done.
It can be your way to celebrate another school year right along with my family.
Post your details and……………
What the heck, we will have a giveaway!!!!! it is also high time for one of those, huh??? Let’s say I will draw a winner on Monday. (Labor Day)
First day of school, new flooring, and a giveaway?????
BRING . IT . ON !!!!!!!!!!
