This weekend, Dee went down to Peoria (I think. Wherever ISU is.) to celebrate her friend Sheila's birthday. I stayed here in Chicago. This was one of the few weekends this summer I didn't have any plans. Since I've had plans almost every other weekend, I haven't had the time to do all of those things around the house that I've been meaning to do for a long time.
What are those things?
Turning the second bedroom into a den. Hang some pictures and reorganize our storage area. I had plenty of time this weekend to accomplish those tasks. Remember what the second bedroom used to look like?
Yeah, it was crowded. There was a huge bed in there that pretty much took up the whole room. Underneath the bed we jammed just about everything we didn't have space for. The room was a crowded mess.
I spend my entire Saturday in the room moving bookshelves, shredding documents, throwing things out and generally reorganizing things. Once I was done, it looked like this.
Check it out. I turned the bed into a couch, turned the paper blinds into real blinds, made bookcases magically appear and made nest of computer cables disappear. Now all I have to do is get some paint up on those walls.
Yeah, I know. I'm pretty awesome.
