Hehe. I love this.
Oh. You mean the purpose of goals and to-do lists is to complete them? Well, better luck this week I guess!
Review last week’s goals and what was completed:
1. Remove the closet doors in master bedroom and Renner’s room (need hubby for this)
3. Choose a paint color and purchase paint for kitchen and living room
What happened? We didn’t remember to remove the closet doors until Renner had already gone to bed one night. And we forgot all the other nights. I did clean out the craft room, leaving piles ready to organize and piles of garage sale items. I posted yesterday about selecting a paint color, still not having made a decision. It’s harder to choose this time because I’m choosing one color for the whole house. I did make some decisions in regards to Renner’s room (we’ll talk about that in a minute) and something crazy happened with our laundry this week. I swear every single item of clothing Renner and Justin have was dirty, along with every towel, washcloth, sheet and blanket we own. However – J never had to ask if x-item of clothing was clean or if there were clean boxers somewhere. I call that a success!
This week’s goals feature a repeat of last week’s that weren’t completed and a few newbies:
1. Remove the closet doors in master bedroom and Renner’s room
2. Organize the craft room
3. Choose a color and purchase paint for all interior rooms
4. Get Renner to take naps in crib
5. Collect, organize and price garage sale items
In true cheater fashion, I’ve already started on 4 of the 5 items. Admitting that means I need to have everything marked off my list next week!
In other news, I *think* I’ve finally come to a decision on the changes I want to make to Renner’s room. Let’s go crazy with the back links: reveal, how it started, little details, ready for changes. I had considered changing the paint color, changing the bedding, the curtains, re-painting furniture. Seeing as how I have an entire house to paint and Renner’s room just got a fresh coat, changing the paint color is out. I do want to add stripes to two of the four walls, like this:
Who doesn’t love Vintage Revivals? I love the current series she’s doing on real life stuff.
I’m also going to paint the monogram above Ren’s crib white because it’s just too kid-town for me as is:
And with the stripes, I’ll be moving some art around. I think the armoire needs to be painted white (J will love this!) or I may just get rid of it altogether (garage sale?). While I do use it for storage, the diapers, wipes, bath and misc. can find a new home. And it would free up so much room… plenty of room for the pallet shelves J is supposed to build:
I’m going to hang new curtains to brighten the space, the closet doors are coming off and being replaced with more curtains, and I’m on the hunt for new fabric for a new longer crib skirt and I’d like to add a rug. Generally, the idea is staying the same, just being refined.
I’ve already started pinning (do you follow me? You should!) things for his big boy room, and I realize I may be getting ahead of myself. But there’s nothing wrong with pre-planning, right?
Okay, now you tell me… what are your goals for next week? What do you think now that I’ve made a decision on the Ren-dog’s room?
Happy Friday and have an awesome weekend!
