It was a busy week but soooo productive! I’ve finally gotten through some of the simple basics on my to-do list…you know, like the vacuuming and dusting I never did in January (yikes). It’s so nice to have a clear desk and polished dining room table again.
It’s the little things…
I usually head out to Michael’s on Friday nights to spend the weekend, but every once in a while I take some ‘me’ time to tackle things around my place. Nothing can ruin our weekend more than my brain racing with the list of chores not being done at home.
This weekend I spent my Friday evening making freezer meals, meal planning, doing laundry, and clearing my desk of paperwork from my old job I no longer need. And I loved it. Saturday I tackled more minor household chores and took Chibi for a much needed walk throughout my neighbourhood. When I arrived on Michael’s doorstep that evening, I was refreshed, felt accomplished, and was able to spend the rest of the weekend with him stress free.
We agree that this is one of the best things we do for our relationship. Doing whatever it is we need to do to feel good about our own homes and lives. We always feel better when we do this…even if it means we see a little less of each other that week. He got his boys together for a long put-off poker game, so it was win-win!
Now I’m ready to start working on bigger projects from my to-do list… oh hello tax season. Stay tuned for a kitchen reno ideas board on Pinterest , and some serious Spring cleaning around here. My closets don’t know what’s about to hit them!
Maybe I even have some time for a new recipe or two. Hmmmm. Wouldn’t that be a kick?!
