Today we’ve checked a bunch of stuff off our to-do list. Swapping out of the lingering winter decorations. First and second coats of paint above and below the chair rail in the nursery. Washing and folding of baby items. Selecting a contractor to replace our sidewalk and stoop and to pour a patio out back. Time outside with the boys. Groceries. Packing up items to donate.
But as I look around all I see are boxes and piles, and somehow this wipes out the feeling of accomplishment. Boxes of decorations to go into the attic. A stack of paint waiting for bedroom #2. Bins of washed baby items that can’t go into the nursery until the paint smell disappears. Donation boxes waiting to be picked up.
I feel like I’ve spent the day tackling the list, but also just shuffling stuff from one place to another in our house. Counting down the days until it’s all back in its proper place or out of the house!
