Good Monday morning. Whew what a weekend. We got some serious work done at the house. The kitchen is 90% painted. Just have to move the fridge and stove out. The bathroom ceiling is fixed and 50% painted. I boxed some things up that I don’t use often so it doesn’t look so cluttered. So we are getting there. Still have lots to do in the basement and I need to find homes for my cats yet. Then we need to lay carpet in the living room once they are gone. I hope hubby can do the basement in like 2 weeks so we can put the house up in 3-4 weeks. When it comes time to put it up I will hire a cleaning crew to give it a good once over before showing it. It’s exhausting.
As for weight loss well I gained a pound this week, I am back to just 9lbs lost. I need to bring my lunch. I don’t know why I am stuggling with that. Ugh.
Well I hope you all have a super day. Enjoy the recipe.
