Pieces of Me

Saturday, October 27, 2007


So E & L moved out this weekend. Well, sorta. They've moved out of the master bedroom & bath, living room and kitchen. We're not in any hurry to have them get the rest of their things out (namely E's office). I know they are busy. And there's a lot to do over at their house. The contractor comes on Monday to start on the new roof and room.

But we did move into our room last night!!! YEAH!!!! Cayden did great in our old room. We aren't going to move him into his room until E has moved all his things out and we have redone it. Which means scraping, painting, and pulling up the carpet.

I'm almost ready to take a picture of Hannah's completed room. Of course, that would involve it being cleaned. You know, yesterday she came to me when I was folding laundry and said, "Mommy, DO NOT go into my room!" I responded, "Well, honey, I have to go into your room to put away these clothes." She says, "I'm sorry mommy. I made a mess. I just had to do it."

I go into her room with the clothes to put away and find all her other clothes on the floor. She insists that she was having a sleepover and needed to decide what to wear. Together, we put up the clothing.

And then my husband and brother-in-law move our bed into our new room. Bless, Daniel. I can only imagine what was going through his head when he saw the disaster that was left behind in the room we've been living in for 3 years. I swear, I am in shock. I've been doing flylady! I clean out from under our bed once a month. Well, I thought I cleaned it out. The entire floor is covered with STUFF. Not trash, stuff. Yikes!!! Lots and lots of stuff. . scrap stuff, card stuff, books, kid stuff. I'm nauseated just thinking about it. I tried to clean it up by myself, but was overwhelmed. So much that I'm now on the computer.

Where's Stephen? you may ask. He's at the UT/Nebraska Game. He won the tickets that his office building gives away weekly. He's very excited and really wanted me to go, but as you can see, I've got lots to do.

Actually, I've been very busy. I inherited Granny's beautiful vanity dresser. And it comes with 12 drawers (and a mirror). It is now filled with my clothing. All of my clothes that belong in a dresser actually fit in the dresser with room to spare. I've been using Grandaddy's old dresser (which Stephen will start to use). We have an entire bedroom set that is just beautiful and we didn't pay a dime for it. It means so much to me that it was G&G's. I found a 20 year old letter that Bekah wrote Granny tucked away inside it last night. I think that's sooo awesome.

I moved all of Stephen's closet clothes into our closet. I've got the dining room table set up with a tablecloth (I don't think that's going to last). And would love to find the box with all the master bathroom stuff but it's lost in the tower of boxes out in the garage.

Hannah's with Grandma and Grandpa and her cousins. Cayden is in his crib asleep. And I'm working on scrapbook stuff.

It's been a long day and it's only 1/2 way over.
