You guys, I did something BIG this weekend. We have a house full of sick people. The kids ended the week sick, breathing treatments and midnight cuddles were needed. The kids magically woke up Saturday happy, healthy and hyper. Dale and I woke up on Saturday sick-ish. It is not horribly sick, just miserable enough to be annoying. So with us planning to be home for the weekend and the kids happily lounging around I got bored. Things are shifting in our life. Dale is working from home one day a week now, yay! I have a major crush on this guy and now get to see him (while he is working) at home all day. Yeah, I am that lady. Obsessed with my husband and wanting to spend all day with him. You can roll your eyes now, I will wait…..
With him working from home and with my budding writing career. It is still weird to say that. Because of that and Dale working from home we need a office, or at least a room with a desk where a door can be shut. Because…. Kids. I don’t think I need to explain anything else. Moving the desk into our master bedroom seems to be the only way we can make that work, which is not the best solution. But one that needs to be done. Maybe long term we can find some other solution to have a office space that is separate from the main living area. For now this is the sole solution.
Once the desk was moved out, I had this crazy idea to redo everything. I am talking everything. Not decorating, I did not whip up a bunch of DIY projects. I redid furniture, we moved everything around. I should note that my crazy idea came up at 7pm on a Saturday. Yeah another spur of the moment redo. For all of you long time readers you are familiar with my last minute ideas.
We have a ridiculously difficult living room layout. There is not one wall without a window, doorway, or fireplace on it. It makes it really difficult to place furniture, and I put the furniture in the best layout. I have not moved much since then. Until now!
Dale is a super hero and suggested us just moving things around until it stuck. So we did a big furniture version of Tetris. Shifting, changing, moving all over, we got the new layout. It only took us three hours.
|Keeping it real, this is when we moved the couch. I was actually surprised this is all we found.|
I know you may think we robbed a Barnes & Noble this weekend too. I will confess this is just all the books we have purchased. We single handedly keep Barnes & Noble open apparently. Our old spool library is one heavy piece, so taking out all of these books was needed to move it. I also got to organize the books better, yes my type A self came out strong in this moment.
|The kids were over their colds, and shared them with Dale and I.|
|Between the kid’s colds and then Dale and I getting it we broke out the tablets this weekend. Sometimes you just have to.|
