I know. I am a wimp.
This is his first midterm week of the MBA program. And I have neither obsessively texted him, nor given him the cold shoulder, nor whined about needing more help.
It is really really tough! Sunday I was dragging… It was hard not having my incredibly dependable and cheerful Bathmaster take over at 6:45 so I could sit down and take a quiet breath; it was hard not having that lazy, coffee-filled morning with my best friend in the whole world; it was hard going for a quiet run just me and Will instead of the chatty, long, family Sunday walk we were accustomed to.
But it wasn’t all bad… Saturday was actually pretty exciting because I decided to surprise him with a few inexpensive decorating projects while he spent the day studying at Queens.
That kept me super distracted all day, and I felt such satisfaction every time I looked around me!
I lovvvvve the result!
Little-known fact about Jason, he is an awesome photographer. He majored in Art History at Winthrop before going to seminary, which I think helped give him a really good eye for pictures.
Needless to say he hasn’t had time for it in the past 2 years, but we have a whole bunch of files of beautiful photographs saved.
I printed a few enlargements of his pictures at Costco, and then I found frames for an average of $5 a piece at Michaels. So cheap for the huge difference it makes!
So I embraced it!
Nicest thing about decorating on a very small budget? It forces you to enjoy and truly appreciate each little change as it comes.
