Teensy tiny progress, our summer to do list.

It's happening.  Ever.So.Slowly.

Truthfully....we are tired.  I think we are experiencing a dose of burnout.

So, we are taking that as a cue to slow down.  We are sleeping in.  Going for more walks.  Drives to the beach.  Not letting the list timeline worry us.  We'll get there....when we're good and ready.

I, in particular, have been fighting a strange virus.  At least that's what I think it is...and it has robbed me of so much energy.  I have an appointment in hopefully I'll have things sorted out by then or shortly after!

With all that being said....we ARE still moving, albeit at a snails pace.  When I posted last, I offered our brown closet organizer and Sarah said she and her soon to be husband would love it.  Her dad Ben and brother Matt came over last week and wonderfully took it off our hands and it has gone to live in PEI with them.  My sincerest and best wishes to them as they start their lives as husband and wife THIS weekend!!

Henry has made progress filling and patching nail holes in the walls and ceilings in Riley's room.  We are planning on making some significant progress this weekend as well.  We are HOPING our physical energy level will match our mental one :)

A wee bit of progress in the pantry as well.

Can you see it?  That tiny strip of drywall.  That's it.  I told you it was a wee bit :)

And the linen closet?  It looks worse than it did.

And staining the shed?  How about we come back to that during summer 2015.

Cheers to taking the burnout cue and burning the timeline.


  1. Thaaaaank you Stacey! I'm so glad it worked out that you were giving away something we really needed! :) We're back now, and exhausted but excited to settle into our house.

  2. Wonderful! Looking forward to seeing some posts about that lovely home of yours!

  3. I hear you, Stacey. Sometimes the need to chill needs to be listened to! It really is one step at a time! Good work!
