A whole week of cleaning, rearranging, and decorating. It feels so good now that it's done. It's closer to what I think I want. It always takes some pressure for me to finish something that requires a lot of work and family coming in to town for the first time was just the thing I needed to try out a new furniture arrangement and work through the piles in our bedroom corner.
Brett and I have both been kind of basking in the good feeling of a clean house. It's rare with two kids and a dog but only because I really enjoy doing things with our time other than keeping everything sparkling and in it's place. There's stuff to do! Things to make! Places to go!
But it really does feel nice not to have shoes in every room, books splayed across the floor, dishes in the sink, the piles....THE PILES!
Worth it, right?
