We have been so busy- more than usual- with work and school and friends and trips and now, working on the new house. It is both so much fun and so consuming to be working on a house. Now, granted, it's not like we are doing a full remodel or anything, but as I listed out the changes to my mom recently, I realized that we are making a SIGNIFICANT amount of changes.
We closed on the 15th and then on the 16th, our contractor began working. So, for the last two weeks, we've been watching the progress, checking in (probably more than they would like), arranging things, and also making final choices. At one point, I was so exhausted by all the decisions that I couldn't even select door knobs/handles. And as I think of it now, it's something I still need to do. But for the most part- the choices are made- and the work is happening. And it looks GREAT. I cannot wait to do a before and after.
I know it's dorky, but I feel really proud of all the work and the decisions we are doing/making. I feel like I have always thought about (or looked forward to) doing a project like this- and it's fun that we are now doing it. I feel like such a grown up.
So once we get this house in order, and we get moved in and a bit settled, we have to get back to the gym and back on track with our fitness. It has certainly been on the back burner through the winter and through all the craziness. I'm excited about feeling and looking better...but I'm just NOT going to beat myself up in the meantime. I can't be good at everything. (Everyone would hate me if I was) AND things have to ebb and flow a bit. At least this is what I am telling myself. Especially while we are in New Orleans this weekend for Logan's wedding. OY VEY.
