Another weekend flew by and it is Monday again. The painter came back today. I really hope that a room or two get done today so that I can get it cleaned and put back together. It stresses me out to have the house so mixed up. The great room has 2 couches and a TV left in it, the rest is in the den and dining room. It is a mess. I also have messes to clean after AC leaves for work today. He leaves on Monday morning and returns on Friday night. He really doesn't have time to do anything. He has a golf lesson every Saturday and the rest of the time I yell about stuff he needs to do at home. It is also stressful to have him gone all the time. Don't get me wrong, I am very thankful he has a job, things could always be worse. He works a lot during the week and really just wants to relax on the weekend, but since he is gone I need his help.

We are not having the painter paint the trim in the house. I figure I can do this. First I need to go and get wood filler and patch all of the nicks and dents in the trim. Then I can paint it. I always get excited and motivated about projects while I am at work, but by the time that I get home I am tired and wonder what I was thinking.

As for the weekend, AC played poker on Friday, I scrapped with friends from 10 am to 10 pm on Saturday, I did homework and we did stuff around the house on Sunday. We took everything down off the walls and moved furniture. Hope your week is a happy one.

I feel your pain! I do the same thing, I think about all that needs to be done. I even make lists and decide I'll do several things a day to get it done and what happens? I sit down for a few minutes and I'm POOPED! :)

Good luck with the stuff you want to get done! Scrapping all day on Saturday sounds like fun!
