I was so looking forward to sharing the minor, but major improvements to me (at least) with you but then a minor inconvenience reared it's ugly head and it called for my attention.
Let me explain.....
I had a way of convincing the mister to take a personal day on Monday January 17th to start some home improvements. Those such home improvements consisted of this:
We painted our laundry room. which is also our pantry..woo hoo. It had been a light green color since we moved in nearly 8 years ago. We also got rid of the stained trim in the room. This improvement came to be because of the beautiful blue items that are in the first picture which we purchased on the 14th. So that is just part of the love that is in this room now. We still need to change out the switches and plugs outlets to be white and I still want to add a curtain to the window that is behind the door but that will come.
However, life was just about to throw us a curveball.
Luckily, we were on the phone with the insurance company by 6:00am and by 8:00am water mitigation was out at the house to start accessing the damage. We have a good friend who does home restoration and his team came in and after cutting a hole in my half bathroom ceiling and my kitchen ceiling discovered a broken pipe. The pipe was fixed on the 20th, water mitigation came in with their drying out machines (which stayed in until the 24th), and then our friend has been making the repairs to our ceilings. The total process is going to take about 10-14 days to completely have fixed but after being reimbursed by the insurance company and since we have such good friends we haven't had to come out of pocket for any of the repairs which is a blessing.
Since I was limited on what I could continue to work on with large drying machines in my home I decided it was time to organize underneath my kitchen cabinets. Take a look:
While all of this was going on we had a friend at church whose 34 year old husband passed away very unexpectedly and they have 2 small children so the mister helped with that funeral. Please pray this family as she has to start adjusting to a new "normal" if there is even such a thing for her and her children.
Sorry for the long post, hope I didn't bore you too much.
