Lets see if I can stick with them!!! That seems to be the biggest obstacle for me these days…..making plans and sticking to the plan!
I plan on spending the whole day working on my cabinets and with any luck at all they will be installed and ready to use by the end of today. They definitely won’t be finished….still have molding to add and the knobby things for the cupboard doors but close enough that I can put all the TV cables/cords etc. in and hidden away and get some order back into that room.
I’m heading to HD this moring to get the plain, flat white ceiling tiles that I need for around the edges in that room that have to be put up on the fireplace side before I can install the cabinets. I’m going to do some shopping around for the coffered ones I liked….they’re really expense, around $18 EACH and I need 36 of them…..there has to be a good deal out there somewhere……Ken would have found one, I know.
If I manage to get this done today, I’ll then have to go through the old wall unit thing that we have in the spare room. That could be a bit of a nightmare…..lots of junk. It’s where we keep all the games (board type games), videos, old computer games etc. The bottom of the unit has all my china in it……I haven’t used “good” china in years….do I want to keep it or ??? The games that we will still play will be kept, but the others can go…I’m thinking most of the video games can too……they’ve been there untouched for years so probably safe to assume that they wouldn’t even work on the computers today….and none of them were mine!!
Emptying out that old wall unit will mean a trip to the dump….oh boy! Unless someone could use it for their junk, in a spare room. I’ll check first, but I don’t think so. That unit will be replaced with one of the newer bookcases that I’m replacing with my built-ins……. Ken would just be sitting back at this point and shaking his head…..he always said I tried to do too much at the same time….and I know I do. I should have gone through the old wall unit months ago and gotten rid of everything…I know that! But these days I need some incentive…..like the new built-ins to get me going….really going and get stuff like this done.
Last night I babysat the grandbabes for a few hours while their M & D went out for dinner. They are sooooo cute and so much fun, but boy….on a Friday night they can poop you out! Today, after the fog clears, is going to be sunny and warm again. Them and their Dad are coming over for the afternoon so they can ride their bikes and play with the other kids in the cul de sac…..I think I’ll put Dad to work while he’s here…..he can go through those old games and I’m hoping he’ll chuck them all.
Wish me luck today sticking with my BIG plans!!
