the once clean family room now strewn with books waiting to be put somewhere...
finally bringing in bins to sort through and consolidate art materials for easy access for future projects
like I said it is more than nice new floors...it is an eye opening, heart expanding, walk through past to present...and what an experience to be doing it with my partner and finding that even at something as trying at times as this is we work as a pretty darn good team.
A funny aside: When I told DH that I was feeling what I was feeling and feeling like crying, he looked at me and said: "Are you on your period?" Okay, it's only funny if you know that I haven't had one in over ten years! ;-)
(the first photo is one of two bookends that were my mother's...she had them when she went away to college in 1929. And one more aside, my 16 yr old grand daughter leaves for college this week!)
