Weekend Wrap Up // February 23rd-24th

so this Saturday was all about fixing two beams in the bathroom. It’s always frustrating redoing something but in the end it’s always worth it. We took out two beams that weren't as sturdy as we thought when we first put them in. 

We cleaned up an old beam that came from the house originally and cut it down to use it on either side of the bathroom. So many little steps go into to that sentence. From all the nails and screws that held on the old beam out, to sanding down every crack of the new board. To cutting it the right length to get it in the house but not too short to span the room. We got one in and secured and the other prepped to go in.

The most important thing we did this weekend was rest. Sunday we ran errands and even lounged around the house. We haven’t fully done that in almost four years. It shouldn’t be that way, but resting is hard. When every weekend is precious you don’t want to waste a single one, but sometimes it’s so needed. We get to do a lot of fun things on the weekends, like weddings and family get togethers, but we never take a day of rest. It’s hard when there are 52 weeks in a year and only two days of those 52 are weekends and then take into account those fun things I just talked about. When you really think about it, we’ve only worked on our house around 400 days in almost 4 years. Chase has a few more, but still that’s not many when you break it down. Taking a day every now and again is precious and yet so hard.
