Spring Cleaning

You know how it is, the sun starts shining, the weather gets a little nicer, you just want to open the windows and let the stale air out and the fresh air in. Then you notice it - the dirt and dust that has piled up all winter. The tops of the curtains are, dare I say it, dusty? A fine layer of gray is making them look faded. The windows have a sort of glaze on them from the coal dust. It just has to go...

And that is how my weekend upstairs in the boys room started. The curtains came down, sheets were changed, trim was cleaned, windows were washed inside and out (thank heaven for tilt ins!). Ahhh, it looked and smelled so much better. When the kids headed to bed Trevor stubbed his sore toe - again. The agony was clear and my Mommy Heart was aching. Something just had to be done...

So, in the name of preventing more injuries, the three of us stayed up until 11:00, moving, clearing, wiping the carpet and trim, moving some more, debating placement and angles... until we came up with this. It's awesome, it's more open, there is limited toe damaging areas, and I even want to go hang out there! Now if only someone would come over and redo my room!
