Sunday Funday Recap

This winter/spring Jon and I have been focusing on cleaning up the house, i.e. organizing, decluttering, finishing up projects. Now, we only have one day off a week together, Sunday. I'm so grateful for this because a few years ago he days off were midweek (Tuesday/Wednesday), and now that I'm working full time, Monday-Friday, we'd never see each other. It does feel that way now since I'm on 1st and he's on 2nd's but we make it work. But this lack of time together can make working on and finishing projects hard.

Sundays are our day to get projects done, here is a run down of our day yesterday:

  • 8:00am - I'm up getting ready for church
  • 9:30-11:30 - I'm at church and then pick us up some lunch (Ming Shee's, delish)
  • 11:30am-12:00pm - We spend time together while eating
  • 12:30 - We started working:

  1. We, mainly Jon, fixed the hole in the basement ceiling by replacing the ceiling tiles and light fixture (this project has needed doing for 3+ years)
  2. Remount the mirror to the wall in our master bath (it fell out of its old brackets when we started the pink bath remodel, 2 years ago, again mainly a Jon project, I was there for moral support)
  3. Touching up the paint on the attic door, a me project with Jon's moral support.
  4. Finishing the 1/2 bath remodel by painting the air vent and reinstalling the hardware, which I had been spray painting.
  5. Painting the window frame & sink alcove in the kitchen (a project I started a month ago but has needed doing since we moved in 4 years ago)
  • 3:30 - Go invited to a spontaneous, early dinner with our couple friends, The Visserings! It was lovely, and we were able to go to Lowe's for needed supplies afterwards.
  • 6:00 - Got home, 2nd coat of paint for the air vent and sink alcove for me, while Jon worked on the last few projects in the pink bath remodel.
  • 7:00-9:00 - Spontaneous fire pit at Jon's brother's house (they live a few streets over)      
  • 9:30-11:00pm - Back home and in bed to watch "Frozen"
Normally, our Sunday's are not this chaotic or packed but it was a wonderful day. We accomplished so many small projects that we had been too lazy to finish over the past few years. We didn't get everything checked off but a good majority! Now, we still need to work on decluttering and cleaning! It's sad how much we got done in only 3 hours that was put off for 3 years! 

What projects are you working on? Any Spring cleaning going on in your home?
