Well, instead of finishing up the month with a flourish and a bang, it sort of fizzled out, didn't it? But that's okay. I got tons done this month and it was actually fun doing it. In fact, I'm feeling a bit lost right now without all the planning and swirling possibilities to think about.
Alright, on the last day of May I tossed 9 lbs. of trash and carried 16 lbs. of stuff to Goodwill. I put a new grill on the vent in the little bathroom, 'cause the old one was rusty.
There was lots of clean-up, too. All the piddly little details got finished up on Thursday and yesterday. The hearth in the living room is now box-free. The top of the TV cabinet has been cleared of stray things. The spot on the floor in the LR, where I stuck things I wasn't sure what to do with, is now a clean spot on the floor and all the things have places. Etc., etc., etc. Result - a pretty decent presentation of the "new" house when D walked in last night! Whee!
Now that she's back, I can also tell some secrets . . . DZ primed and painted an "accent" wall in the main bathroom. Now, instead of sickly peach, it's blue! And he's also primed all the upper "cabinets" in the kitchen. And the thing he put together for me (from UPS on the 24th) is a new, smaller dining table. Yay, I've got a table in the kitchen again! The bigger table that we already had has been transformed into a desk, for me!
On the day that we shopped for fridges, we got a new fridge - stainless steel finish, black trim, with side-by-side doors and the ice and filtered water dispenser. Saving $40 a month now, not having to buy the bottled water.
Finally, B replaced our old computer and now we've got an iMac! Yowza, this thing is quiet. No fan, no big CPU tower, no spaghetti of wires everywhere.
Photos will come, but the problem with switching from Microsoft stuff to Apple is that I can't use Paintshop Pro to do my photos right now and I'm trying to learn this new thing.
So, there you have the May Makeover. Good fun!
