Right about now, I'm wishing things were a little more like the holidays. It has been crazy busy around here. It's already time to start prepping my garden and get my seedlings started, yet I am nowhere ready to even begin thinking about it.
I think this months mission is going to be fun, and well deserved. I'm redoing Messy Kid's room. We've lived here for about a year and a half and the poor kid hasn't had her room decorated since we moved in. At our old house, she had the coolest room. But alas, age 6 is knocking on the door and it's time for her Big Girl Room.
Big plans are in store this month. You see, I don't know how to sew. But I do own a sewing machine. And I have tasked myself with replacing her window coverings. Now, this can either go well and I save myself a ton of cash. Or, (most likely) there will be a lot of swearing involved and I wind up buying something after many hours and lots of agony invested. Let's be optimistic and shoot for the best.
Now it's time for the ugly truth:
Yup, that's my beloved child's room. It is by far the messiest room in the house. I can't blame
her. It's 95% my doing. For whatever reason, her room has become the catch all. But no more.
She deserves better than this and I will prove it to her with my actions.
Can't even get to her closet. Such a shame.
There's that wandering vaccume cleaner. It really does have
a home. I'll make sure it gets there this month.
Believe it or not.. this is a picture of her bed. It's drowning under all the junk.
Messy Dad made that doll house. It's very beautiful. And what do I do? I make it look like it's
ready for a trip to the dump. It looks like a real heap.
What's on tap for this month? A complete overhaul of her room. I'm hoping I can get it all done before the month is up. She's getting new bedding, window treatments, lighting, rugs, accessories, wall decor, the works! I am also going to organize and sort all of her toys so she might actually be able to play with some of them.
Until Next Time,
