Renovation Mishaps


Because we spent the last week and a bit staying at my parents I haven’t really had to deal with the disaster of my house until this week. As you can see my house is a disaster and the only organization to it is all my daughters food and formula which I just laid out before coming to bed to write this post. Before today everything was piled into a laundry basket sitting on one of the tables I have in the kitchen. Considering I need that laundry basket in order to do laundry I had to empty and organize.
Other than that I haven’t really touched anything else. The house is so bad I don’t know where to start and it just makes me want to burn everything! Ahaha. Slowly but surely everything will get done and I’ll be able to re-organize everything. I can’t wait for that day to come.

Reno 101

The above picture is what happens when you notice that the drywall is wet and your boyfriend decides to say “screw it” let’s open it up and start more renovating…
I can’t argue with the idea because I love that we’re continuing our reno, but at the same time I’m like shiiiit I don’t want to deal with everything that comes with renovating. Especially when you have a infant that you’re trying to raise in that space. But I guess it works out in some ways because she has the option of going upstairs and hanging out with Nana, while we destroy walls and make a huge mess.

Unpacking


Moving sucks. Yes having a new home and place to build memories is great. But packing and unpacking your crap sucks! We’ve almost been living here a year and I still have too many boxes to unpack. Our situation is a little different because we had renovate and such. Part of me still doesn’t want to unpack because I know we still have so many renovations to do. But as I set up my bookshelves and my daughter’s I do love the idea of everything being put away where it’s suppose to be and making the space feel more like home. I guess this is one of those “you can’t have the cake and eat it too” moments.

Renovations

My in-laws purchased a house back in June with the intention of us moving in to their basement and making it our own. I was already 5 months pregnant at the time, and we had to build two bedrooms, for us and our little girl before she arrived. Well we finished ours and hers, they look pretty good. Now we’re trying to make the rest of the basement livable.

I’m excited to get these further renovations underway, but it will definitely be a bit difficult with a little human around, especially since I’m going to be helping too.
But we do have a bit of a blueprint drawn up and I can’t wait for the finished product!!
