Shakin' things up
I love re-decorating. Or at least changing things and moving things around.
This afternoon Jamie, Erin, Olivia and I changed up the living room. It was in dire need of a face lift and we gave it one. We switched the couch from the kitchen (honestly, a kitchen with a couch in it?) to the living room and put the table in the living room into the kitchen. It's opened up the entire room and I love it. And it was like "While you were out", the decorating show on TLC that re-decorates a room with the help of someone while the owner is away from the home. When my mother-in-law came in the door I think she was a bit surprised, but she's learned to roll with the (weird) punches she gets living here at 4 Norgrove.
I seriously get HUGE satisfaction by seeing a clear and distinct change from the way things were at the beginning to how they are now. I love doing things that are hands on and I can just "get 'er done!".
But a thought just occured to me - where are we going to play poker now?
...insert shocked contemplation here...
