All the Christmas decor has been packed away for another year. It was a little sad to see it all go after such a great Christmas but I like rearranging things.
And rearranging I am!
Nothing too drastic but we're moving chairs around and re-thinking how we use our space. Right now, we have two desks set up in the room with all the bookshelves for the girls' school time. I think we're going to do away with the desks. The girls enjoy doing school work together either at the dining room table or (on lazier days) on the living room floor. Plus, it would be nice to have a space for sitting to read, play games or chat with visitors where there was no television.
That is the plan for today. We'll need to clean out the toy closet and purge older items that are no longer used to make room for new toys. Organize the school supplies that are in the desks onto the book shelves and bins already in the room. Clean the chair that's been in the basement for way too long. yaddayaddayadda.
This also leaves me space upstairs for one of my Christmas presents to be set up. My sewing machine. It's still in the box because I have no idea how to use it. At. All. But I'm determined to learn.
So on with the reorganizing. I think the only thing we'll be missing are side tables. I want small ones - just big enough for a reading lamp and a cup of coffee. Off to to some searching before the work begins...
