ARE WE HOME YET?

I LOVE HAVING ALL THESE SHELVES

I CAN FILL THEM UP IN NO TIME AT ALL

HAVING A HEARTH TO DECORATE IS A NEW EXPERIENCE

OLD LINOLEUM REMOVAL IS A HUGE TASK BUT MANDY WILL HELP


We're no way near being finished moving, but we're still making progress. Today I packed more boxes, carried them down the stairs to the garage, and filled the car. I met Glenn at the house tonight and he helped unload everything. After a simple supper of sloppy joe sandwiches and potato salad, we went to work. He pulled up more carpeting and I unpacked linens, books, and lots of decorator items. I'm quickly filling the built-in linen cupboard in the bedroom. I cleaned it and added scented drawer liners over the weekend, along with cleaning the pink bathroom and a couple kitchen cupboards. I've also been dusting as I go. Check out the most recent photos of the family room. That's my answer to Glenn's question, "What in the world are you going to do with all those shelves?". The shelf items may vary from time to time and I'll probably rearrange things, but for now, I like having all those items where I can see them. They make me feel more at home. We surely have a long road ahead of us but we're thinking about how nice it's going to be when cooler weather comes and our family will be sitting around the diningroom table with us, enjoying Thanksgiving dinner. That's when we'll know this has definitely been worth all the time and effort.
