Crossing Off!

I have just finished an important piece of a very large project that has been looming over my head for quite some time. It feels good. Very good. There is still much more to it, I am doing a room swap between Erika and Lilly. It has been in the works forever. It is critical to tear down wallpaper border, prep walls and paint both rooms before this can be accomplished. One room is now finished. There is still a bit of touch up on the trim but that will have to be another day-hopefully tomorrow. Crossing off one room is big! Especially for me because I loathe painting. Despise it. Detest it. But there comes a time when it must be done and it is sooooo much easier than wallpaper.

I am still listening to the organizing CD and it has really inspired me to make my home exactly what it should be-a place we are eager to be at. A welcoming sanctuary from the world. My living room is the only room I am really at peace with right now(some day we may even aquire some curtains!!). One bathroom kind of is, but the other needs major expensive work-as in a new shower unit so we have done the best we can until we have the money to get to it.

I just love listening to things that inspire me to do better at all things domestic. Especially organizing because I enjoy it so much. I'm going to go soak in the tub now and then prep for a brand new school week tomorrow!

Today was a wonderful beginning to what I hope will be a wonderful week!

Sometimes when I make lists I add things to it that I know I've already done so I can get the pleasure of crossing it off. I fool myself that way.
