I’ve been posting a goal once a week and then posting about them here every Monday. Then BlogHer came and I set my last goal for two weeks. Well…..this is week three or four (I can’t remember at this point) and I didn’t forget about my goals. I did actually manage to finish one of the two goals I set for myself which was to recover the exercise equipment back pads. I know the white is not the ideal color but we decided to work with materials we already had versus spending money on anything new. It still looks a lot better.
My second goal was to clean our sofa and love seat and re-do the throw pillows. I don’t really have an excuse regarding the throw pillows. I have decided I want a whole new pattern so that means a trip to JoAnn’s to find something I like. With school looming my weekends have centered more around getting the kids ready then running to JoAnn’s. As for the cleaning of the sofa and love seat. I usually take the cushion covers and wash them in the washer and dryer. However my new Whirlpool dryer is not working properly and we are working on getting it repaired. It does work but it makes this really awful noise so I try to use it as little as possible until we can get it fixed. So for now the sofa and love seat are taking a back “seat”.
I’ve decided not to set an additional personal goal this week. I’m spending a lot of time catching up on some blog stuff, and getting more organized to handle new things as they come in. I’m also extremely busy at work with budget season upon us so I’m pretty tired by the time I make it home. Labor day is this weekend and we have some fun plans. So my goal is still to get our sofa and love seat in good shape. In addition I am hoping to steam clean our carpets soon.
