Neatly, it’s that point of 12 months when your home feels dull and naked with out all of the Christmas magic. It at all times takes me a cast month to actually get used to my common space once more as soon as the decor is long gone.
We’re actually, actually hoping to have our primary ground rest room renovation carried out ahead of the top of the month, because it’s been two months already with out a rest room on our primary ground.
This can be a smaller ’60s house and there’s only one rest room for everybody (folks, children, visitors) at the primary ground, so it’s been a large deal to be with out it for see you later.
Fortunately, we do have a tiny rest room with a bath within the basement, however it’s very small and now not in nice form (leaking from a couple of puts so the ground is at all times rainy), so it more or less reminds us of an RV rest room from the ’70s.
It even had a damaged accordion door once we first moved in like they have got in RVs when the toilet is just too small for a door to swing inward, haha.
All that to mention, I’ll be more than happy to have an upstairs rest room with a bathtub, as showering in a tiny house with a wiggly 4-year-old whilst seeking to wash her hair and shave my legs on the identical time is mainly a superpower that I need to surrender quickly!
In any case, right here’s some issues which are making me glad this week whilst I wait …
1. Added this desk lamp to my front room—so lovable and reasonably priced, too!
2. Have you ever heard of Frownies?! They give the impression of being loopy, however I suppose it’s an outdated Hollywood secret. They’re mainly little craft paper stickers in your brow (or different spot to your face) the place you have a tendency to increase effective traces/wrinkles.
It assists in keeping the ones muscular tissues from shifting to re-train them to loosen up and lie flat (you’ll be able to put on them all over the day however most of the people do just it at night time).
I’ve at all times been the worst about scrunching up my entire brow after I’m wired or simply simple pondering, or doing one thing passive like staring at TV. Other people would at all times suppose I used to be mad at them and evident around the room when I used to be actually simply pondering of their course, haha.
In any case, I’ve been the use of them for a couple of weeks and I will be able to already really feel my brow noticing after which stress-free after I begin to get the “concern forehead” all the way through the day, so it’s beginning to paintings already!
