I have been a very busy bee this week. We have way too much stuff and way too little space for it all. This week I have been a cleaning machine. Nine months of dust on the wood trim. I'm kind of a stickler about dusty trim. It looks so dingy - I've come to the conclusion that our house needs to be repainted from top to bottom. I wonder what the landlord will say ... I'd also like to get updated lighting fixtures in the bedrooms ... we shall see. We had a storage company come and take away our guest bed and we have turned the guest room into Kaneu AND Ruby's room. We weren't going to do this originally but we really need to have a workspace for Brian, which will be Kaneu's old room. Lastnight was their first night sleeping together and it went better than we expected. Ruby woke up when we put Kaneu to bed but she was so exhausted that she fell right back asleep. Kaneu had a few wake ups but all in all it went well. Right now they are BOTH napping. Love it.
Okay, well I guess it's time to tackle our bedroom. I have been putting it off. I am going to make a serious attempt at eliminating a lot of items from my closet. I hope I can do it.
