I mentioned on my facebook page that I was doing some rearranging in my house today. There's a story behind it.

Without going into too much detail, suffice it to say that sometime in the next 24 hours, I will have 3 more people staying here. A friend and her kids are coming to stay with us for a bit while she deals with some personal issues. It's going to be cozy in here, but with the way that I moved the furniture around, I think we can make it work temporarily until a more permanent solution is found.

I've been thinking about creating a bedroom for me for a few months now. With the way that the "living area" is set up, I figured that I could take the front part for my room and just keep the middle part as the living room. I need a really big curtain to divide off the two rooms, but I'll deal with that later.


After. The towels under the desk were so that I could slide it across the floor without destroying the hardwood.


After...I haven't put away all of my sewing stuff yet and I need to get rid of the pile of crap on my futon.


After...just ignore the mess in the kitchen. I'll deal with that in the morning.

Before...with a body.



AFter...this is the doorway that will eventually have a curtain hanging in it.

So while it's not done yet, the big stuff is moved and it's somewhat organized. I still have random piles of little crap to get put away, but that shouldn't take too terribly long to do once I get up and moving and get the older 3 kids off to church with their father in the morning. Not knowing what time my friend and the kids are going to get here, we probably will skip church - not to mention that my entire body hurts from moving all of this stuff. I tried to take a kneecap off by dropping a nightstand on my leg, so my knee isn't terribly happy with me either.

So on that note, I am going to crash early and try to get some sleep. I have to finish the cleaning tomorrow and get the rest of the stuff organized before they get here so that it'll be easier to get their stuff in and settled. They are going to be tired from traveling to get back here so I need to make this easy for everyone.
