So, hopefully, I can work on getting his stuff out of my room after this weekend and get my bedroom back!
I know how you feel about trying to clean these areas. If you are like me, the stuff has been put there because you don't know where else to put it! So, its either find new homes or toss it...and neither can be an easy task.
Hang in there, girl!
Part of the issue is that we gave up a bookshelf when Miss K moved in. We gave it to her. So I have boxes of books in our room. We need a bookshelf for Little J first but should probably look for another one for ourselves. Of course, DH wants to make one. That would be fine but a) he has to make it all difficult. He has this ingrained perfectionism that sends him looking at all these odd-shaped difficult to do contraptions when all I want is a simple 2 shelf bookcase for Little J. Not to mention that he doesn't have the experience to make something like this:
All I see when I look at this is a project that will never get done with his busy schedule (full time student and stay-at-home dad) and wasted space.
b) not sure when he would get it done. It could be AGES
once Little J has space for his overflowing books, we'll see about one for us.
Anyway...that's a big part of the issue. Boxes of books. There are other issues too though.
