Hello friends! Those of you who are following our septic saga we had our inspection yesterday. Good new is that it didn't completely fail. :) Long story short is that we have clogged lines. There is a possible fix for it by blasting the lines with water. We are in the wait and see stage as the technician has to go over things with his boss and make sure he is in agreement. We are praying that this is the answer since it will be the most economical route. We'll continue to take it one day at a time.
Due to my mental state ;) the last couple of weeks I didn't tackle as much as I wanted. Every little bit helps so I'm grateful for what was accomplished.
When you home is cozy many areas have to serve double and sometimes triple duty. The closet in our living room is one area that is multi purpose.
Games are keep in here. A couple of new games were added at Christmas and a true home was never found for them. I can't tell you how many times I knocked the Payday game off of the shelf while getting out the vacuum.
The upper shelves hold craft items that Megan can use anytime. I could tell she has been in here lately since things were not put away exactly the way I would have liked. She is still learning.
(Sorry about the blurry picture. I only took one and sadly this is it.)
Everything in its place and all lined up makes for a pretty shelf.
This is one of those projects that didn't take a lot of effort and made me wonder why I didn't do it sooner.
I had plans to tackle a couple of other areas. Chuck had asked for gift cards to the hardware store for Christmas. He had a plan to organize the garage and was itching to get it done. I spent time out there helping him out.
The plan is to get rid of all of the cardboard boxes. We have noticed that if the garage is damp from a wet car that the boxes would soak up the moisture in the air. Yuck!
It does look nice to look out and see a shelf of matching containers lined up. He now has a container for each item such as plumbing, electrical and such. The next step is to label the containers and move on to another shelf.
It was my pleasure to put my task on hold and give him a hand with this. Not only is the garage looking better and better, but I got to spend some quality time with my guy. Win, win!
What project have you tackled in the last week? Tune in next Tuesday to see what homemaking debt I tackle.
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
