We are cleaning.
This weekend it is the basement’s turn. There are piles of toys in need of purging. Last weekend, with the kids all at grandparent’s houses, Seth and I worked around the clock and made major progress on our room and the main level.
We live in a 1600 square foot house.
That is being generous and including the basement. While it was a mansion to Benjamin and I, it is a bit of a squeeze for the five of us (and one Archer). But, thanks to Ikea, Seth’s design sense and some serious purging (two trucks full), the house feels better than it ever has.
We are impatiently awaiting Spring and its warm breezes, sandals, fire pits and back yard grilling.
Here is a shot of our redecorated living room.
And now, I am off to the basement.
Any others have advice on blending households?
