On Friday we headed out to the countryside for a retirement party at a HUGE old house. The friends of the retirees from GW's school were hosting the night, and it was a great one. Snacks, skits, drinking, dancing. Very fun :)
Saturday morning we got up and put together a salad and ourselves, and got ready for our weekend trip. First stop was Toronto to visit Sarah and Trevor and their NEW HOUSE! Well, we hit up IKEA first to get those extra boxes I needed, and a couple of chairs while we were there. And THEN, stopped into their new house. It's super cute, and super big! We could all immediately spot the potential in the place, each of us impressing our own ideas about renovations and alterations. It's hard not to do with such a great little house! Hopefully in the next few weeks, we'll see bits and pieces come together before they really settle in. That's generally the hardest thing, that I've found; once you settle into a place, it's that much harder to start doing whatever renovations you wanted to get done.

We didn't get a thing done re: reno work, and now really have to get moving so that we don't lap ourselves in start to finish! Lol. GRR. The last little bits aren't nearly as taxing as the start, but I think that's what makes it harder to get done. We're also on week 2 of our new cleaning regimen, so hopefully that'll stick. If so, that's at least one step in the right direction as far as I can tell.
Have a great week, folks!
