Looking forward...

Today I am trying to find something to look forward to this week. I am a very short-sighted person: I need to have something I am working toward. (Like a little kid with the promise of a candy bar after cleaning his room. Except there will be no candy bar involved since I"m on a diet. Well... after what I have to accomplish, there may just be chocolate involved after all. We'll see...) 

So, today, I am finishing the tile backsplash in my upstairs kitchen. We did half of it on Saturday, but I am determined to finish it today!

This week, I am painting the ceiling in the kitchen and installing the new cool brushed nickle track lighting.  I am putting in the backsplash in the basement kitchen as well. This WILL happen this week. It MUST!!! Then, I will be painting the kitchen in the basement as well.

Tonight, my hubby and I will be purchasing some shade trees for our front yard. We've been meaning to do it for 10 years now, it's about time! (And we happen to have my sister's truck here, so we'd better do it before it goes back to its home tomorrow. Nothing like an approaching deadline to whip this procrastinator into action.... usually.)

This week, I will be going out to lunch with my hubby since lunchtime is about the only time we can ever have a "date" anymore.

I will be looking forward to General Conference because it means I get to spend hours and hours of cuddle time with my family all piled on the bed together feeling uplifted and reminded of what a lucky family we are to be together forever.

So, it appears I have a lot to look forward to this week! Wish me luck!

Merritt told me all about your house projects, good for you guys! I am jealous about the shade trees! Hope you have a great week.
