Insta-Friday in real life, basement overhaul week
For those who are new to Insta-Friday, it means sharing simple cell phone photos from your past week and linking them up with Life Rearranged. With our handy cell phone cameras, we take way more pictures than we used to, don't we? Might as well share some.
This week, my daughter (above, right) has been going to dance camp each day with her visiting cousin.
With the little (demanding) one out of the way, I asked my husband to agree to spend two hours each day organizing our basement. Over the whole week, that amounts to 20 man hours...which might seem like a lot...but you haven't seen our basement.
Mind you, my husband is going golfing today, so he is not going to be putting in his two hours. What do you think? Should he make it up on the weekend?
Part of the basement overhaul was finding somewhere to store my vintage dishes. My husband picked up two new storage units at Canadian Tire and put them together.
We made a trip to donate some stuff to the Salvation Army. Did you know that, for any donation, you get a $5 off (if you spend $25) coupon?
We took a break from organizing to have all-you-can-eat lunch at our favourite sushi place. Because we are vegetarians, we tend to go at lunch. We don't want to pay dinner prices, because we really don't get more variety at dinnertime.
We stuffed our faces real good. No worries that we might not get our money's worth. We paid $7.99 for my 10-year-old son, but he eats just about as much as we do.
How was your week?
