This past weekend my husband and I did a little rearranging of rooms in our house. My dad used to do it all the time when we were kids and we would call it ‘fruit basket turnover’.
We decided we wanted to get the video games off of the front porch and into our living room so that we would be more ‘involved’ with the older kids while they play video games. We wanted to be able to more closely monitor what they were doing and keep track of which child’s turn it was. We hoped it would cut down on the fighting.
After one day it has been pretty decent.
And you know it’s never just one project. Something always comes up that leaves you running to the hardware store to work on something else in the middle of what you started.
My husband decided to change the outlets and outlet covers since we were cleaning and rearranging. Most of the old ones were probably 20 years old and falling apart. And copper looking. White looks so much better.
He ran to the hardware store and left me at home with the internet not working. Which wouldn’t have been a problem, but I needed to call him to ask for an additional item. We use Skype which needs the internet.
I figured I could grab my cell phone, but it was dead (as always, just ask my family). Which got me wondering why I even need a cell phone. I haven’t used it in a month or more. Last year at this time I was wanting an iPhone. I am so glad I didn’t cave and get one along with a contract. Then I would be wanting to sell my iphone instead of just a cheap prepaid phone.
It’s funny what home projects will make you realize and think about.
I’m just glad we didn’t end up having to redo our ceiling or something major in the middle of this project. That may be next along with the bathroom and many other things.
