This week totally snuck up on me! How are you doing? Breathe.
I was out grocery shopping over the weekend and totally didn’t consider it was the last weekend before Christmas. The highways were clogged. Parking lots bursting. People were so crabby, too. I hate that part of the holiday -- and I’m one of those last-minute people. Thankfully, we avoided most of it and went out early Sunday morning to finish up our shopping and preparations in peace and quiet.
Saturday. Sometimes you just need Cupcake prosecco. AmIright?
A lot of it. (Here’s looking at you, 2015!)
I spent a good portion of Sunday cleaning our house, which felt very cathartic. I’ve been wrapped up in myself for what seems like eons now, and our house was starting to look like one of those mild cases on Hoarders. No joke. We have four bedrooms now, and two of them were full of . . . stuff. Stuff we don’t need. Stuff that we won’t need for (well over) 9 months. Stuff that we had forgotten about. (Oh, hello, favorite socks!).
It’s looking and feeling wonderful. Just in time for our guests!
And random: I never followed up on rehabbing our Craigslist couch with the Leather Honey. It looks BEAUTIFUL. The finish not only cleaned away all the dirt and grime, but it also made it shiny. Best of all, it’s been standing up quite well to Ada’s jumping!
Here’s where you can get the leather cleaner and the leather conditioner. The products are 100% non-toxic and natural -- no animal products, silicone, toxins, solvents, or other harmful chemicals, etc. Find out more on Leather Honey’s website. (Disclosure: They had sent me some product to try, but this post is not sponsored -- my opinions are my own.)
Just FYI: Starting in January, I’m going to attempt blogging just on (never)homemaker and see how it goes. I’m not totally certain I’ll be merging the blogs in full, but if you guys seem to like the new approach, etc., I’ll eventually be migrating the content so it lives on just one site. Thanks in advance for your support with this move, and if you have suggestions or thoughts -- I’d love to hear them.
In case you missed Friday’s post, here’s 4 Things About Me.
