Oh sad sad blog...I am sorry I have forsaken you.
The painting is done, minus a few touch ups. I finished the floor on Saturday, we went shopping for shelves and other necessities Sunday afternoon (Ikea was out of the shelves that I wanted so I didn't actually get any) and we then had to move everything out of the living and dining rooms and back into my room and make the house presentable in less than three hours because we had friends coming over for games and karaoke. I am still in awe that we pulled it off. We went from total squalor, not even able to open the front door all of the way, every seat and table covered in crap to our cheery, comfortable, never-quite-totally-clean-but-as-close-as-we-can-manage house in less than three hours, PLUS I had time to run to Trader Joe's and whip up some easy treats for our guests! Company has always been our greatest cleaning motivator.
It feels so nice to have our house back. For four weeks it was increasingly overrun with all of my crafting stuff, with many other messes weaseling their way into any nook or cranny they could find. And let's not forget the most important thing of all...my craft room! It's back! Well, not totally back...as I said I have no shelves so things cannot be properly put away but the room is usable. I have many many ideas. I think this crafting drought has caused a sudden flood of creativity. It's so exciting! I told Harv that I don't want to do any entertaining this weekend...I want the entire weekend to myself and my room. It's going to kick a lot of ass. I can't wait to share with you again!
