Day One 11:45 a.m.
I need some lunch!! Jeff will be along with something soon. Time is flying by. I forgot to eat and drink this morning, save for one cup of my flowering tea (a Christmas gift from Christy). So I'm famished! Made some iced herbal- which I am sitting and enjoying while I post my update!! Have I mentioned that Jeff has been home all day? He's been taking work calls... but hasn't had to go anywhere. So he's helping me when I call upon him. But he's a smart man and is generally staying out of my way. Letting me do my thing. I'm sure the hackles will go up once I start in on OUR bedroom- since that will involve HIS stuff. Teagan's room is DONE. Shelves completely cleared off, bagful of trash gone, missing bits and pieces of toys gone, Bed moved, dresser moved, dollhouse moved (and yes, we did go with the Savannah and it is AWESOME). I spent just an hour on her shelves. I will get pictures loaded up tonight to share. I'm really hoping she will be excited about it all. I think her room looks more "big girl" now and has better play space. Zach's room is DONE. Swapped the crib and twin bed, took out the bed frame. See, his room is odd. It's small. The door is in the middle of one wall. So we had a twin bed behind the door and the crib on the other side of the door frame. And I think he might be ready to start using his big bed. So we took the frame out, put the box spring and mattress on the floor, installed the side bar catchy thing. Big accomplishment in his room was to take out the last remaining baby things and actually put them up in storage instead of just having them stacked up in the corner of his room. As I clean the living room, I will be putting his own toys in his room, too. He will have his own play space, just like Big Sis. I've been dusting and vacuuming and wiping down and scrubbing. It feels GREAT. It's the starting point I need for the New Year. I don't often get time to really clean and organize. Housekeeping is way low on my list of priorities. So this semi-annual puring, cleaning, fixing up is really good for us. Also... Jeff is installing drawer pulls on Teagan's dresser. That's been on the "to do" list for a loooooooong time. Now I'm on my lunch break. Lunch will be delivered shortly. I'm putting my feet up and relaxing. Vegging out with my laptop and the TV (I'm watching "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood." I got hooked on the first season of their reality show- it's one of my guilty pleasures. I have to be totally honest and admit to finding myself being a fan of Tori Spelling. Never in my life did I think that would happen.) I'll post again this afternoon!
