are a mess!
Marc and I spent most of the weekend making sure we were ready for the painters. We transferred closets to a spare room in the basement (lower right) and a little bit to our living room (center right). I unloaded my craft room (upper right). and we both spent a few hours decluttering and reorganizing along the way. It felt like we were in good shape. until about 11 am (center left). That’s our bedroom. Last night I was so happy to have ALL my clothes out of storage units in the closet and actually in the dresser.
Now we understand that the way they’re going to be able to paint our whole house in less than two weeks is by making it seem “empty”. They put paper down on all the floors and plastic over everything else. literally EVERYTHING. I was glad I had a little dirty laundry in a hamper and rescued it to wash before they wrapped the hamper. (Marc wasn’t quite as lucky.)
We’re hoping “moving fast” means we’ll have some of our stuff back by Thursday?! and all the emptying out means I don’t need to worry about being showered and dressed for any Zoom calls 😉
Marc and I haven’t done this much teamwork since the summer’s Marmie & Poppa camp. of course we didn’t have Quiet Time, or grilled cheese with carrots and cucumber for lunch. on the other hand, it was wine o’clock 45 minutes ago.
My study is mostly packed now (lower left) and the bit of quiet time I have in the mornings needs to be actual “quiet time”. I will catch up with y’all soon … and 🙂 plan to share my OLW update in a future post. (also the paint!)
Wishing you a calm and peaceful start to December!
