Weekend projects

This weekend we did a very fun project. We installed a new closet organizer in our bedroom closet. The stuff that was in there before as you will see in the pictures, soon to be posted, was all scraps of particle board and wooden rods that had obviously been repurposed for the closet. There was shelving behind all of the clothing rods so that you really couldn't get to it, even if you are tall. So being that it was so inconvenient we ended up not using a lot of the storage space and piling our clothes up outside the closet. This was very frustrating because we are both pretty neat&tidy kind of people.

So I had enough. I asked Josh if our next project could be fixing the closet. I originally had it all planned out and then we got to the store and they had even more options than I envisioned so it was kind of experimental but in the end we are really happy with it! We didn't create a lot more space but we created a more useable space that makes a lot more sense to us than what was there before.

And, today marks my fourth day of not eating chocolate and only having minimal (1 or 2 per day) sweets. I am trying to cut some addictions unhealthy things out of my diet. Honestly you would not believe the amount of sweets I was consuming in a day. And I have started running (foREAL) again. This makes me feel very good and I actually sleep through the night and wake up energized! I also got some new shoes because my old ones had a big hole in the toe and rocks were jumping under my toes while running. Also my old shoes were letting me get some horrible hip pain and the new shoes have helped to reduce that quite a bit. We ran the St. Patty's Day 5K here and that was kind of my "get up and go" race so now I am ready to get moving and get back in shape again. Eventually little miss Charlie will be my running partner but seeing as how she can barely walk a straight line on the leash it's going to be a while before she can run next to me.

Have a good day! Spring is coming! Which means, Summer is coming!! Yay for wearing Chaco's again.
