This weekend was a busy one. I worked an event at the museum where I work; I went grocery shopping; I did laundry; I spent some time with my grandmother. I did not, however, get around to the big project that is facing me:
I'm on a mission. A mission to take back my guest room and actually turn it into a guest room. Not a storage room full of books and magazines and tools and shoes and bags. That's the goal at least. I have the new floor to almost-ceiling bookcases from IKEA. I have started going through papers and magazines, saving things that I find useful and recycling the rest. I have a pile of books to take to the used bookstore. I have a plan to get rid of the big desk (which I never use) and replace it with an enamel-top table I already have and will take up less space.
In July my mother is coming to visit and will be bringing with her the twin bed from my childhood room - I'm going to turn it into a daybed of sorts, sitting it against a wall with extra pillows along the back. I can use the new, clean office when working from home. And that way one guest can even have a private room instead of being stuck in my living room on the sofabed. I have big plans and hope it all works out!
