After the first week of demo and nesting, I had compiled quite a shopping list. Each project that I was working on needed something I didn’t have. Between 12/20 and 12/23 I spent most of my time gathering necessities from my never-ending shopping lists. Stores weren’t going to be open during Christmas so I became a frequent visitor to Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target and Walmart.
Dear Home Depot, I love this bucket so much.
LISTS! So, now not only did I have spreadsheets with my schedule, I had shopping lists and to-do lists. Once, when I was at Lowe’s, I set my list down on a shelf. I spent 15 minutes retracing my steps looking for it and thought I was going to have to go home and remeasure everything. Without my measurements my trip would be useless. Thankfully, I found it! This actually happened to me again the next day at Home Depot. I was standing in the lumber aisle with the big cart thing searching my pockets and my purse like a maniac. UGHHH! Not again! I left the store and found it in the parking lot by my car. After losing my priceless lists twice, I learned to take a picture of them with my phone, just in case.
If you look through my lists, you’ll find that some of the things continue from one to the next, and the next, and the next. I still don’t have blinds for my room. You’ll also notice that I’m quite visual when it comes to measurements. In later posts you’ll get an even better idea of just how visual I need to be to fully comprehend space – and I’ll teach you all about my homemade templates!
I especially love my measurement that says, “35 1/2 and 14.25” on the 4th list below.
