This time last year we were bursting out of our 900 sq ft ranch, so we took advantage of the market and bought a house double the size. Of course it needed a little TLC, but nothing we couldn’t do ourselves in just a few short months… Well, we’ve been almost (a word I’ve begun to lothe) done for the last 6 months and now that Christmas is over you’d never know we have twice the space. Time for a purge. I love getting rid of stuff. So therapeutic!
We did finish the big girls bedroom over break. First room that is totally done. Maggie got a box of hardware and loft plans for Christmas so Chris built that this week. We are now able to house an NFL linebacker if one needs a place to stay for the night. Chris doesn’t do dainty (except when he’s playing tea party of course). His hard work was rewarded when Emily told Maggie, “If a queen were to sleep in a bunk bed, this is the one she would choose.”
