Ahh. Another incredibly busy weekend. I am glad to just sit today (for the most part) at work and recoup a bit.

Got the ceiling painted in all the main part of the house, the difficult ladder work in the stairwell is completed, and the living room (except for the shelves is completed. All edging is completed where the walls meet the ceiling and all of the lights/fans have been taken down, cleaned and replaced. Lower kitchen cabinets are scrubbed and ready for stain. I think tonight's activity will be baseboard installation in at least two rooms, possible 3... Makes me tired just thinking of all that is done and all that is left to do.

Not a great weekend for eating though. The kitchen is (for all intents and purposes) dismantled at this point with very little left functioning - only a coffee maker, the microwave and toaster are accessible. I picked up some microwave meals in the hopes of keeping me away from fast food this week. That should be helpful. I can't wait for all this work to be completed. House hunting will be a walk in the park compared to getting the house ready for sale!!

I need to stay the course when it comes to eating correctly. I did make it the grocery store last night and purchased items that will help me remain on track. Now if it would just cool down so that working in the evening wouldn't zap all of my energy!!!

Rest day. After nearly 10 days of full on demolition, painting, furniture moving, etc. I can finally take a little time today. All of the flooring has been installed for the main floor, stairs, and the two bedrooms downstairs. My "rest day" will still be filled with activity, but it will be normal - laundry, kitchen, vacuuming. I never thought standard housework would be restful, by right now it sounds pretty dang attractive.

I have been good with watching what I ate through this whole process. Not great - if I had stuck with my typical eating, I probably would have passed out from hunger. Having to eat out didn't help either - my kids love a fast food place that doesn't have grilled chicken or sides that are conducive to dieting. I did make the best of it by limiting my consumption, though, and the calorie deficit of being constantly on the move really helped.

Back to work next week. It will be good for me - I will come home in the evening and work on the house in smaller chunks. I hope to have another big painting weekend next weekend - painting the open area of the hallways, living room kitchen/dining area, and stairway. The painting square footage will be similar to what we have already painted. The stairway sucks, though. Tough ladder work for sure. Finishing the painting should put me in good shape to have the house market ready by the end of June. What a month.
