A Cleaning Fool

Today while Wyatt was at school, I drove out to the new place and did a little (very long overdue) cleaning! Needless to say, I'm having to take it one room at a time since it took me 2 hours just to clean the living room. I must say, I really did enjoy it! It's so nice just to crank up the radio and get down to business. I washed all the trim, cleaned the windows, attempted to clean up the fireplace, and swept and mopped the floors. I'm pretty pleased with how it looks now. We've decided not to paint the living room and the master bedroom. I think a little cleaning is all the needed! Since we don't want to spend a lot of money on the place, this will save a little and we can buy a new light ceiling fan for the living room. I'm excited to see just how cheaply we can make this our "home"! Plus, it means more money I can put into our future house when we build.


On another note, I'm so excited about our Craigslist find of our appliances for the kitchen! We came across a stove/oven, microwave and dishwasher for $350!! They are black, which I'm sure won't look the best with white cabinets, but as long as they work I'm fine with that. They don't appear to be very old, so I think we got a pretty good buy!

Tomorrow Wyatt and I are going to lunch with a friend and then running a few errands in Huntsville. I'm excited to have a fun day tomorrow and go do more cleaning on Thursday. I'm so thankful that I can get things done while Wyatt is at school. I'm getting used to this "Mother's Morning Out"!

  1. Yay! Congratulations on your "new" home. If I know you, I know that it will look absolutely wonderful, even if it's only your temporary place until you get the home of your dreams!

    P.S. I would LOVE to see your gorgeous face! Please come visit ANY time! You're ALWAYS welcome, especially now that we're just a hop, skip and a jump away! :) xoxo
