As we approached the weekend, I was feeling a bit glum. The heat had me wanting to do nothing but sleep. Our humidity levels had it up passed 30 degrees Celsius (90 degrees Fahrenheit) and I was sure I wouldn't be able to achieve any of my goals for this long weekend. Specifically finishing the painting in my bathroom and getting the sink in place.
This weekend is also the traditional annual May Seminar for my martial art and there was no way I'd be able to participate with the heat.
I was also wanting to catch up on my dishes, but who wants to run a dishwasher in the heat?
So I decided to take a brief detour and install my air conditioner. That took some time and energy, which was a delay, but a worthwhile one because I no longer felt wiped out by the heat.
I also had a tub surround to pick up, but it would be hard to find a place to put it without getting my sink in place.
I made it. Mostly. The painting is done (4 coats later - lime green is awful to cover) and the sink is installed and working. I didn't get far on my dishes, but I was pretty tired after that.
Finishing the painting and sink install has helped me clean up some areas in the rest of my house because I had a number of items that should live in the bathroom. I've been slowly finding the items to put the room back together. Some of the art is up, the mirrors are up, there is liquid hand soap, the doors are on the vanity, and the toilet roll holder is in place. It feels a little weird to be able to do everything like brush my teeth in the bathroom after so long having to use the kitchen sink for it, but I'm sure I'll get used to it in no time.
These accomplishments made me pretty tired and I feel like I could use another long weekend to get over it all, but it was worth it!
