Had we not done that I don't know how we'd be coping. We both work and have the kids at home to care for. I work 10-11 hours a day, come home to make dinner and clean up and that leaves me about 2 hours a day to get anything done. After working all day I choose to relax on the sofa with my boyfriend for those couple of hours.
Today was my day off and I squeezed in time with the kids and just a couple of projects.
Hiking with the kiddos
The roll-out garbage has been installed. We had to knock out the back half-shelf to make it fit.
We put in motion sensing light switches in our master closet and the garage. The closet one also has a night light. Great for making our way to the restroom at night. There are no windows in the bathroom so it's DARK!
And I finally painted our powder room. Frog tape lives up to its reputation.
The sacrifice was the kitchen didn't get cleaned and the laundry didn't get done. Now I get to spend my evening doing both.
My suggestion to those building now... Try to get some time off to put your homes together. I would have pulled all my hair out while sitting in a pile of boxes had I not.
Seriously, who has the time to move and put together a home while working full time? I sure don't.
