My year is almost up and I want to go out with a bang. I don’t think it’s any surprise that my house is not a glossy magazine photo of serenity, but I’d like to have something to show for my efforts.
Almost a year ago I declared that I wanted a room of my own and set my sites on Lonny’s eBay room as an office/guest room, maybe we’d even move our bedroom into there. He and I have battled over it the entire time.
I say I’m ready to start, he says he needs more time. For a year.
I decided that it was time to start the project. Like starting a family, there never is the perfect moment. If you know that it’s what you want, you have to just jump in there and figure it out. At least that’s my approach to life.
I am terrified of this project because it means my whole house will look like it exploded. I needed moral support so I hired Shé because she’s starting a personal organizing business and I thought, “How perfect!”
She showed up at 8am and ready to work. This is going to be a big project so we are taking it one day at a time. Here’s what we got done.
We got rid of a whole box of papers and small junk, too insignificant to count so I’ll call it ten.
I’m heading off to see David Sedaris in Denver as a belated B-day gift. I’ll write more later.
