My House; New Life

Still working on my office. The plan is on April 23rd to go to Ikea to pick up the sofa bed I wanted. I’m a bit conflicted because the colour I wanted is out of stock but we’ll see when we get there. We have a backup in mind in case this one doesn’t fit the bill. I won’t be the one sleeping on it, after all. Need to make sure it’s comfortable for my guests. Not that we get many guests, but when we do, it needs to be perfect.

I’ve got mental images on how I want the rest of the room to look and we’ve ordered bookshelves to finish it off. Considering hemming the blackout curtains that are currently in the room but I’m not sure if I want to yet. They’re so big and heavy!

Once the room is done, furniture wise, it’ll be time to finish it off with the right accents and accessories. I want to go for a zen/buddha/chill kind of theme and I’ve seen a few pieces I might like to put in there. It really all depends on which sofabed we get. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get side tables. I’ve been keeping my eyes on the classified in my area in case I see something I could repurpose.

I’m also hoping to get a few planters to grow some veggies in my back yard; cut down on the grocery bill and get the kids to help out. This will also be a good reason to get outside more often with the kids because I’ll  have something to do!

We recently bought a new patio set for the back yard that just needs to be put together.

AND! Because I am the coolest mum ever, I bought concert tickets to take my (soon-to-be) 6-year-old to see Weird Al! My kid loves his songs and even if we just stay for half an hour I think it will be worth it! I’ve already got the time off work and I’m trying to convince my husband to come out as well with our other son. The concert takes place in another city so I’ll have to drive out and most likely stay overnight. Even if my husband doesn’t come I think it will be good bonding for me and my older one. We don’t get to spend a lot of time together, just the two of us. Each kid needs special time with their parents. I also want to get a nice tent and go camping in the backyard when then weather gets nice. My husband wants to get a new fire pit too so it will be great!

All these plans, so little time. It really hinges on what job my husband is doing for work. Hopefully he gets one of the full-time jobs he applied for.

In other news, I’m continuing to write and edit TAK. I hate editing lol I’ve been adding a bit and detracting things that don’t matter. I realized I’m not very descriptive of the scenery when I write, but for what I’ve read so far I’m not sure if that’s an issue or not. I’ll see how I feel when I do the next edit.

Enjoy your Tuesday! I’m a bit sick so I’m trying not to breathe on people. Keeping my germs to myself.
