A few weeks ago, Jeff and I had talked briefly about rearranging the living room but then decided it was too much effort.
Sunday, I headed to church for the morning. Left the house around 9:00. After 2nd service, I headed over to Jeff's parent's house for our Thanksgiving celebration with them. Jeff arrived a bit after us- he probably got there around 12:30. And told me right away that I wasn't going to be happy because the house was a complete shambles.
Instead of just moving the one shelf I wanted moved to make room for the Christmas tree, he proceeded with the total rearrangement plan. But was only in mid-switch when it was time to head to lunch.
And he was right- it was a shambles. But he'd gotten a lot of work done so we spent a couple of hours getting the big furntiure moving done and then he spent time working on hooking up all the electronics.
I had today off work and spent my time putting things away, cleaning off shelves, organizing, throwing away trash, and so on.
It still isn't done. But here is a picture of that corner- this is the "after" and you can see that it is totally different!
Progress is being made and I feel really good about the work we've been doing to our living room. The best part is that Jeff is talking about getting the dining room cleaned up now that it isn't just hiding behind the couch. The new arrangement leaves the room more open and I really like it.
It isn't done but it is progress!
