Ron returned to work yesterday and I was happy to see him go.
Don't get me wrong. I was not tired of his company. I like having him around. Rather, I was happy to see him go back to work because it meant that "vacation" is over and I can rest.
Honestly, my plain old Monday seemed easy-peasy after the days of last week! Laundry, homeschooling, tidying, cleaning out a cabinet, preparing dinner? No big deal.
So, yes, we accomplished the goals of Plan E!
Goal #1: We finished painting Bekah's bedroom and she loves it!
She was a bit reluctant to give up those pink walls after fourteen years, but now she's a convert and loves having the "blank canvas" of white on white. She has been trading out duvet covers and rearranging accessories by the hour. The photos I am sharing in this post simply show the room as I was photographing it. It could be totally different by now. :)
I am thrilled that she is enjoying her room, dabbling in decorating, and finding her style. Not only will she enjoy her space now, but it is practice in making a home.
Goal #2: We painted the built-ins in the living room.
Yes, we are waiting for the paint to cure before we put the books and accessories back.
So, yes, the dining room still looks like a used book store and our TV is perched on a dining room chair.
But "vacation" is over! (Whew!)
Have you ever worn yourself to a frazzle on "vacation"?
