It's Sunday Night Already? Weekend Update

First order of business... it's my 300th post!

What a busy weekend, and a good one!

Working in the automotive industry definately has its pros and cons. One of the pros: Karl is working on the personal vehicle for a Moen faucet representative. He gave Karl two full faucet sets for our two-sink master bath as a tip on Saturday. I priced them out at about $150/ea. at Home Depot. Fabulous!

Seeing as Madison spent most of her weekend with grandparents, I should have gotten so much of my to-do list completed, right? Wrong. Time flies so quickly when it's free time. One thing I did do is take a very long walk around the neighborhood on Saturday. I haven't been doing it on weekends, only weekdays during lunch. I'm definitely going to change that... it felt so good to take a long stroll around here.

Karl and I were going to have a date-night Saturday, but it never happened. We just chilled it at home, and it was great.

We spent 3.5 hours at Home Depot this morning, and all the kitchen selections are done!! I am going to be seeing some contractors this next week for the concrete proposals, but all the major decisions have been made... and it will cost about what we'd estimated, which is nice. The only change we made is the painting: Karl and I are going to paint the kitchen ourselves. Everything else we'll have Home Depot contractors do. I'm so excited I can barely stand it! We've still got a few things to do: choose a faucet, a new dishwasher and the paint. That's not bad considering the overhaul we're doing. I'll take before/during/after pictures and post them.

You're still reading? Then I've got something hilarious for you, that coworker S. sent me today via e-mail. Warning: Do not drink liquids while watching, you will spit it out:

Congratulations on your 300th post! I'm glad you managed to get some R&R this weekend.

Yeah. We have quickly learned to not overburden our weekends. If we pack too much in, we end up stressing out. Laid back weekends are definitely the way to go.

Sounds like things are going sweet with the house remodeling. Have I told you I don't envy you, BTW? lol No seriously, can't wait to see how everything turns out.

That cat vid was hilarious! I gotta be honest, got a bit weepy at the in memory of thing at the end.

Hope your week's going well.

Happy 300!! Here's to 300 more!

Remolding is so much fun, at least at the picking things out stage. when you are in the middle of replacing everything stage we'll see if you are as happy...until it is all complete and all shiney and new.
