Holy crap, it's Easter.... Well Happy Easter to you (if you celebrate it). And if no, happy beautiful spring day. It's going to be so nice and warm and sunny today. I am really excited... spring is finally here!
This past week was epic for th house. The roof was ripped off and now the new addition is up! It all started on Monday when the mr got a phone call asking if he could go let the guys into the house(they were a day early). and three days later they were done, the walls and the roof were up!(not the roofing, we are doing that next week) It was like magic ad I couldn't be happier. The upstairs is now huge and bright. Our new bedroom space is bigger then our entire living space now. I am all like Woo hoo!
When the guys were finished, the work started for us. We had to finish knocking all the walls down and ripping up all the shit floors. It's been a hard on the body kinda week of work and every single muscle in my body is aching. (the mrs too but he doesn't complain. He is a champ) 5 years ago I was able to rip apart a house and be like " what what" the next day. Now I am like What what no.. creak creak" I am officially an old lady and now I need a break!
WE are taking a semi break today( although there might be a little framing and light cleaning might be in store) because it's Sunday and it's Easter. The family is getting together for food, fun and a egg hunt, which I am really excited about., and lots of sitting outside absorbing the warm sunshine and fresh clean springtime air. It's going to be great. I am even planning on bringing a book and passing out on the back porch at some point.
What about you, any fantastic Easter/Sunday plans? Are you going to spend the day hunting down specially hidden Easter eggs, eating lots of chocolate eggs (and carrots I hope) and hanging with loved one?. I sure hope so. And don't forget to get outside. We could all use the fresh air.
