When Russ came home, he put in the hardware for the blinds and hung the curtain rod -- check it out, the ends look like waves!
He also put up two out of the four corner shelves. Light switch plates are back on too.
Jack sat and watched the whole time...wouldn't it be great to be a cat??
Bit by bit it is coming together. Today I have to trim the blinds to fit and put them up...finish nailing baseboards on...vacuum the carpet well (and maybe even steam it in a few places)...put the headboard back on the bed... and puzzle over the post I picked up from my friend's house yesterday. I know what I want to do with it, but I'm not quite sure how to go about it yet. I think I might need my dad for that! I'm going to see if my mom wants to come over...we can probably put the bedding together and hang the curtains...and I might need help with some of the other stuff. Trying to get it all done when she is in school is a bit of a challenge, because I have to be all cleaned up and everything back to normal when she gets off the bus.
One more thing...last night at supper, she asked when we were planning to paint her room. We told her paint was super expensive and that we were thinking to paint in summer. I suggested if she save her allowance, maybe we could paint over Easter. She was a little disappointed when I said summer, but perked up about painting at Easter. I just know she is going to be beyond excited when we give her room back to her on Friday night!!!!
