Over the week that we were all snowed in, and both schools and my husband's employer were closed, I took the opportunity to begin the process of moving the kids into their new dungeon...excuse me, bedroom...and moving my things into what would become my new sewing room. Harper was desperate to help, in order to move the process along, but she's so spindly and clumsy you can't give her much to carry, so I'd hand her a single piece of paper or a fat quarter and say, "Here! Find a good place for this!" And I'd discover that she had placed it in the middle of the floor or that she went to the bathroom on the way and set it down next to the toilet and forgot about it. But at least she was occupied!
The room still needs work, as the children's bookshelves are still here as well as Harper's dresser, which requires a forklift to move. I also have yet to remove the Maurice Sendak prints or the photos from High School Musical that Harper printed out and taped to the wall several weeks ago in an attempt to customize the decor. Zac Efron is kinda cute.
It's not in the pictures yet, because it's just kind of shoved into an available space until I get those bookshelves out, but yesterday we went to Ikea and along with a new bed for Harper, we also got a chaise lounge for my room. So when I feel that I am going to positively swoon from the happiness of having my own room, I can land on something cushy right in front of the TV.
And in the time I have had my room set up? I have sewn exactly ONE HALF OF A BLOCK! It was still worth it.
