to do:

1. hang pictures~
lots of them. everywhere.
smiling faces, happy places and people we love.
2. laundry~
oh, the laundry... the never ending piling of
dirty smelly clothes.
sort. wash. fold. put away. repeat.
until you die.
(not to be negative or anything.)
3. rent a bulldozer~
(or maybe dynamite?)
for the toys and clutter oozing out of
the kids rooms and into the hallway.
4. enjoy having four kids~
we haven't made tons of friends yet...
so it's great that they have one another.
and thankfully, their friendship with one another has been blossoming.
5. find a home for all the pretty little things~
most of my surface space looks like this. eeek!
6. build new bookshelves?
i'm considering built-ins. we have more books than
we have bookshelves. and we ALL know that getting rid
of books is NOT an option.
(okay, except maybe the american literature anthology below.)
7. did i mention we have clutter?
i keep ignoring this cesspool and it doesn't go away.
what's the deal? doesn't that work?
so. there you have it folks.
when i have a second in my day, this is the list of things i'm considering tackling.
overall, the process of moving here has been amazing mostly due to
how serving our church community has been. so many people have helped us
move in, paint, get settled, paint, paint, and paint some more.
we are VERY close to having the entire main floor painted!!
(which means, i'm running out of excuses to deal with the above!)
(if any of you who have helped us read this, THANK YOU!!)
