Spring Break has WORN ME OUT!

I LOVE Spring Break!

I LOVE not having to set the alarm!


I am an EMPTY Nester...NO KIDS at home.

When I am on vacation...hubby goes to work..

and I take care of our house, work on my TPT store, and

relax...  Ahhhhh.

NOT THIS YEAR!

This year we chose to redo our house.

We had new granite counters put in.
We had new tile backsplashes in the kitchen.
We had new appliances put in.

Then...

We had new granite, sinks, faucets, lighting, paint, & mirrors
in 3 bathrooms!

WOW!

So fun to see it coming together.










If YOU are thinking about doing this on YOUR SPRING BREAK...  2  weeks...

Here is some advice from one TIRED teacher:

1. If you have ALL of your sinks done at the same time...
YOU WILL NOT HAVE FAUCETS OR WATER!
It takes a few days for grout, caulking, etc to dry.

I feel like we are camping. 
Brushing my teeth in a CUP of water.

Washing dishes in a bowl of water.
No stove...eating out!

I just made coffee in the LIVING ROOM!
Can't use the counters, yet!

And so on...And so on.

Hubby is putting up the bathroom light fixtures.
Then paint.
Then mirrors.

Then...Then...Then...

NON-STOP.

I think Lowe's has me on their
CHRISTMAS CARD LIST!

2.  Don't  STRESS... Things NEVER go the way we plan!
Go with the flow.
2 steps forward. 1 step back.
YOU ARE STILL GOING FORWARD!

3.  DON'T work on SUNDAYS!
No matter what!
relax, go to the park, out to lunch..just get away!

Your "new" frame of thought will be AMAZING!

All is good.
Just taking a long time.

I go back to work next week.

SPRING BREAK has WORN ME OUT!
