We are officially moving out of the guest house tomorrow, and I’ve been spending most of my time doing everything I can think of to make the transistion easier. I’m honestly not sure how my FitBit didn’t track all that activity, even though I was dripping sweat like I had been doing some serious cardio.
The renovation is done! Now I’m cleaning (so much dust), and putting furniture together, and putting everything in place. The house is starting to look like a home, and in about a week, the Boyfriend and I will hopefully be moving out of the guest house and getting the cats settled in.
The new carpet has been installed upstairs, but now the baseboards are all messed up and will need to be repainted. In the meantime, I’ve been vacuuming up all of the loose carpet fibers and doing as much other work as I can without the Boyfriend’s help (who hurt his back and has been taking it easy).
I had to do some more yard work this week, after it finally stopped raining, and I’ve been moving stuff around in the house to make it easier for the painters to finish up. I’ve also started putting together some of the furniture the Boyfriend and I got since the first floor of the house is now 99% done.
The yard is under control for now, so I moved on to tackling the garage and going through boxes of books trying to find as many of my Gothic, Mystery, and Horror books as I could for #RIPXVI. While the renovation on the house is almost complete, we’re still waiting to get carpet installed upstairs before I start putting together furniture and moving stuff into the house. Because of that, the books I wasn’t able to fit onto my two little bookshelves in the guest house are stacked up on the floor in my temporary office.
Now that it’s finally cooling off outside and not raining all the time, I’m back to being out in the yard trying to get it back under control and get rid of the weeds. I wouldn’t say it’s fun, but it is a considerable amount of exercise.
