It was low key but a productive one. Basically, I was a homebody over the weekend. I didn’t go anywhere except taking an half an hour walk Sunday afternoon even though the wind was cold (I just doubled my clothes). By the way, that was the only “workout” I’ve done this weekend.
My husband didn’t work last Saturday (usually he works from Monday through Saturday) and we did a few things around the house. We had someone come over to our house to check the basement to start the “project” in a couple weeks. It made the five of us (including our neighbor) so excited because after living here for two years, finally, our basement will look better. The first part of the project is to check the sewer and the wiring to make sure everything’s working and fix whatever’s needed then we’ll proceed to put fake ceiling. My husband is super excited but I am way more excited for him. We just can’t wait!
I was firm with my plan to do some deep cleaning but I only did half. I managed to dust, fold the laundry, sweep the floor and get rid of some clothes and toys (with the girls’ help). And I got rid of a few more from my own closet.
On my last post, I talked about saving money for our “basement project fund” but yesterday we spent money on buying food from a restaurant in town (I craved for their fried chicken!) and a take home pizza. I wasn’t in the mood in messing in the kitchen preparing something. Maybe because all week long, I’ve been cooking home cooked meals, I wanted something different…on my low-key weekend off.
I did my DIY facial. It’s a mixture of sea salt, olive oil and honey (I thank YouTube for that!).
We watched the Nebraska volleyball team played on TV and we’re excited that they made it to the semi-finals! I hope they make it to the National Championship!
I started reading Leo Tolstoy’s biography that I’m 100% sure it will take me until New Year to finish.
I had the girls’ read a few books and they did some artwork (drawing and coloring). I also watched a movie with them and guess what was it? FROZEN (yes, those girls named Elsa and Anna!) for jazillion times. It’s interesting to know that they just couldn’t Let it go, Let it goooo this movie!
I wrote a few sentences for my second book even though it’s short. Another local author once advised me that even if it’s five words, as long as we write something every day, it’s better than nothing. That positive outlook always keeps me in track and inspired.
I took care some of our bills and updated my financial record but there was one thing I’ve noticed—a late fee on one of our credit cards. Thankfully, they waived it after on the phone with them for almost 45 minutes! It’s worth it though because I saved $38 on late fee which I hate AND refuse to pay.
I watched some Oprah’s inspiring interviews that are soul awakening and thought provoking. I just loved it!
This how my weekend went, how’s yours?
Have a great start of the week, my friends!
