Keeping Busy

How are you spending what I like to call “extended time off?” At first, it was daunting having my husband home a little more. He was working a full-time and a part-time job. Now it’s just the full-time, for now. It was like having a 58 year old underfoot. It really was. Then an idea hit me. we started doing some neglected home improvements. I already have a list made. We’re planning to sell soon, so it seems like a good time to start putting some work in. I happen to be lucky though. He works at a home improvement store.

The biggest project was to replace the deck I built right before my husband and I met. Still find it hard to believe it’s been 10 years. At first I wanted to replace the few of the rotten boards. Some were really bad, but after getting into it the work, we decided to pull them all and extend it an extra eight feet. It’s all about redesigning. I think I’ve tired him out.

Next is to replace the microwave. Kept hoping it would last a little longer, but no. Time to install a new one. I’ve already researched how to mount one under the upper cabinet. Waiting on the delivery now. I can’t wait to break out some more tools!
