Move It Monday

Well, the weekend sure went by fast, didn't it? Here we are facing another Monday morning. I am tired, and hurting. I fell in the laundry room yesterday and hurt my lower back. (where I already have issues) I was up late last night watching Dallas beat themselves with penalties and icing my poor back. Despite all this, I am going to read my bible... I'm in proverbs right now... and make the decision to have a good attitude about the day, and start of my week on the right foot! I am going make some delicious coffee and some whole wheat toast and head out onto my deck right now. A little late, yes..but I had to have enough sleep or I would NOT have been able to make it today.

When I come back in all refreshed and full of the spirit, I am going to enlist my oldest son's help and finish moving furniture and other things around. Yesterday, we made a BIG change and moved the living room into the dinning room, and the dinning room into the living room. It was a hard decision to make because I was soooo happy with the design and decor of both rooms! However, I felt it was a necessary change. Now, I can keep a closer eye on my little "Taz!" I can see her better when she's supposed to be watching cartoons, and she can be with me in the new dinning room/school room. There will be enough room in the new dinning room, for her to have a little play corner where she can play quietly, or read. And when it's time for her sister to do school work at the table, she can join in and color and listen. I love that my couch is back on carpet now! I love that my table is OFF the carpet! So hard to keep clean with 4 kids...and it's a light colored carpet! We also are making a big change in my oldest's curriculum, so he'll need a better place to spend 5 hours a day on the computer. I'm very happy with the change and can't wait to finish, so I can show you pictures! All the school and arts/crafts for both them, and my hobbies, will all be in one room now, and I love that! No more chasing around wondering where I put something! So, today I need to:

*Start load of laundry-DONE

*Clean inside of toilets-DONE

*Wash dishes-DONE

*Move textbooks-DONE

*Move shoe rack-DONE

*Move deep freeze-Decided not to!

*Organize clutter on desks

*Design dinning room floor plan-DONE

*Finish the day with 3 loads of laundry washed and put away-DONE

I don't know, it's a tall task isn't it? Plus, I have to get my oldest to piano practice at 5. Thank goodness it's not a gym night! I think I'll get enough exercise though, don't you?! I just have to be careful with my back. I'll be stopping a lot to ice it. That fall was so scary. I knew about a half a second into it, that there was no stopping it. It's been a LONG time since I fell like that. Hopefully it will be another long while before it happens again! Have a great Monday everyone!


  1. I am so sorry that you are hurting from your fall! How scary that must have been...

    Your new living arrangement sounds like it is going to be a perfect solution for you guys! I can't wait to see how it all turns out!

  2. You poor thing, I'm hurting just imagining your pain. I hope you take it easy today so your back can heal properly. Your list is certainly a long one; just take it one step at a time.

    I can't wait to see pictures of your new living/dining rooms. That's a major change for sure! But as long as it works for your family it's worth doing. Besides, you always have such good decorating ideas, I'm sure this is gonna look homey and comfortable in no time! Just remember: don't over do it! God bless.
