February is my favorite month probably because my birthday happens near the end of the month.
I had a great birthday whereby people made me some of my favorite cakes: Tres Leches and yellow cake with buttercream icing.
We worked on the pink bathroom and thus far have repaired the broken tiles.

- Step 4 — Prepare wall for wallpaper
- Step 5 — Paper the walls
- Step 6 — Reset the toilet
While we were away Sug painted the ceiling and removed the old wall paper.
Charlie took down the shower curtain rod to facilitate the wallpapering.
We still need to paper the walls, hang a new mirror, etc.
After the bathroom is underway I’m heading to the back bedroom where we’ve been storing all sorts of papers and projects.
That room is our main guest room. Unfortunately I did not even get started back there in February. Maybe March.
Charlie told me he is finishing the baseboard trim — “No matter what I say.”
The only thing I told Charlie about the trim is that the wood is being stored outside and will need some time inside to acclimate before being cut and installed as baseboard. Unfortunately no progress was made on this project except that Sug painted all the formerly installed baseboard on the first floor.
We traveled to Cuba at the beginning of February. Both the weather and the people were warm and lovely.
Check out some of our Cuban posts by searching “Trip to Cuba”.
Top priority on our return from Cuba was to finalize our tax paperwork and send it to the accountant. I did not finish by February 14th as I had hoped but I did get it to the accountant by the 20th and our return is almost finished.
I was planning to return to the gym in the morning starting sometime in February. Didn’t happen. Then I was planning to start March 1st but I have caught a cold and feel I shouldn’t try to exercise while I’m under the weather. I’m keeping my gym membership as an inducement to get back to it.
If you could cut back on one responsibility what would it be?
