Well, I am considering the office about 96% done at this point. There are some small straggling tasks, like hanging artwork on the blue wall, but we need to figure out a frame situation for some of our prints first. For now at least, it feels like the most complete room in the house, and lying on the tiny couch yesterday afternoon drinking a beer and listening to the hail storm was quite pleasant.
Also I should note that this marks the first time we’ve intentionally hung something on a new nail instead of just haphazardly sticking something on a pre-existing hook or propping it up against a wall. It feels like such progress!
Wallpapered the closet, although I’m still not entirely satisfied by the boxes we bought to go in the closet, which still don’t quite fit:
Organized the book shelf:
We purchased this tiny couch from Ikea, because it fit nicely in the room, folds out into a bed, and Greg has a fascination with tiny things.
Another thing we still need to do is move our nicer newer Mac computer up into the office, but first I need to try to convince Greg that it’s time to get rid of the Dell. Greg is sentimental about very strange things, like shoeboxes and boogie board shirts from when he was 12, and apparently computers. He’s holding onto this thing despite the fact that it takes twenty minutes to open iTunes, ten minutes to load up a web page, and an hour to shut down. I’m only exaggerating a tiny bit. All of this added to my most hated thing, this undulating sea of snarled wires:
Sometimes I swear I’m willing to deal with the health effects of having countless wireless laser beams shooting through my brain just for the sake of getting rid of all of the cumbersome and unsightly wires in my life.
So here’s the list:
finish installing quarter round
paint trim and doors
touch up paint mistakes
– put other computer in there
– hang artwork [partially done]
clean and rearrange bookshelves
– new curtains
