Tuesday to do do

Well, it has offically been two weeks since my husband left on business. I have started so many projects to keep me busy and even finished a long to-do list. I do still have a few things to accomplish and a few that I need him to help me finish. But it amazing how much one can accomplish without the distractions of your mate.

Things I have finished:

1. The wreath on the front door. Even got it hung up!

2. I ordered the prints for my picture frames from my wedding (6 months ago) and hung them all up!

3. I ended up buying curtains instead of making them. For now it was the better deal and the bonus of this and what I am most proud of myself for, is that I found bamboo rods at Michaels and used them, instead of getting real curtain rods, for a fraction of the price. I couldn’t find a decent Curtain rod for less than $20 each. Well I got 3 Bamboo rods for $5 a piece and they bring an earthiness to the house that I love!

4. I Finished and mailed those shower invites.

5.  I found that stupid King size bed frame I had been looking for and after many failed attempts was able to locate at my favorite GoodWill and so the Bed is finally off the floor and looks half way decent. This was also a bargain $15 vs, the cheapest I could find on craigslist or other of $55.

6. I stopped and bought a few pumpkins for decoration of the front porch. Also, my dearest sweet mother chipped in a bought a few mums and other flowers to spruce up the Front of the house! Which was much needed.

7. I found the perfect fabric for that chair I have been dieing to re-upholster and the fabric was $13.  – Just need to re-upholster now!

Man… after I list them all out it doesn’t seem to be all that much. The biggest problem is the time to do it. I work til 5 I don’t get home til 5:30 then I have to get the dogs walked usually 30 min to an hour and then still cook and then I am playing taxi to KeVaughn and so I have maybe 2 hours to craft or hobby or whatever before I am HIT hard by the Sand man.. haha And, then to throw a curve ball Elijah is back in the hospital which is 45 min to an hour away I have to visit him once or twice a week or go through withdrawals and plus it keeps his Mom from turning  into a nut job… so when I do that, like I did yesterday I can pretty much forget about planning anything else after that!

Tonight my sister with the eye for detail is coming over to help me put final touches on my house so that it looks wonderful for Emily’s shower. Which I am hoping to hear from everyone, no RSVP’s yet… but I’m not going to worry until this weekend then I will start making arrangements for replacement guests… j/k… kinda…

Then I received the good news that Mr.Wonderful will be returning on the 3rd of November. Which is perfect, because I have a small lists of things that I need him to finish before I have a bunch of people in the house.

With just a few to-do’s left I’m getting excited for the 6th of Novemeber

1. practice cupcake recipes to find the right one for shower.

2. Finish making favors for guests.

3. wrap the last present.

4. final touches for decor.

 

Thats it! I love being prepared for parties.. takes the stress away!
