Of course, the only things in the room are a lawn chair, the TV, the Xbox (which Chip *had* to put back last night), and a folding table awaiting paint supplies.
We’re in the middle of our holiday spruce-up. We’ve deep cleaned the carpet, the boys and I scrubbed down the walls/baseboards and now I’m waiting for Chip to get back from Ace Hardware with some white paint so I can touch up the trim. We’ll do the dining room on Monday and the office on Tuesday. My goal is to get everything done by Wednesday at noon so we can start putting up the Christmas stuff on Wednesday (minus actually decorating the tree – we’ll do that Thursday evening). It’s a lot of hard work, but it needs to be done and we’ll all enjoy it once it’s done.
