photostory friday: gettin' busy

i have not been idle during my past few weeks of unemployment.

in fact, i have gone completely gangbusters on the rumpus room downstairs.

every single inch of this room has been vacuumed and vacuumed good; and it's only partly true that i've moved furniture that's been in the same place for 10 years simply to vacuum up the GOOK with my brand new all-singing, all-dancing dyson.

ok, it's mostly true...

and now for the photographic evidence of all my hard work:


BEFORE:

AFTER:

BEFORE:


AFTER:

BEFORE:

AFTER:

so to recap:

sold bunks
sold desk
sold bookcase

bought single bed w/trundler

threw out a lot of crap
sorted out even more

feeling pretty virtuous right about now...

on the job front:  on monday i had a 1-day contract which was pretty cool, and i'm starting a one month contract on monday.   FULL-TIME!

yikes!

Good luck with the full time bit - just remember to keep breathing in and out and the month will simply fly by!

What a pity - as you are starting on Monday you can not pop over and help in my house?

Great job girl.

Me too--I've got a basement that needs a good cleaning. Can you come over???

good luck with the new contract.

And, if you need more to clean, I'll be sure to send you my address.

and yet there's still room for jam sessions!
Congrats! Reorganization is the hardest thing ever (to complete!)
