Gettin ' Er Done!

Wow, what amazing progress is being made around our house! As I mentioned Sue is going to move into the garage room. I've also mentioned that it had been used as a bedroom previously, but when Chris' cousin moved out and got married it got used as storage. We didn't realize the amount of crap we would find in there.

Sue decided to hire a friend of Chris' to help organize it into something livable. She is anxious to get her own space done, and she has been sleeping on the couch in the den since she arrived. She doesn't mind this , but still wants her room.

I haven't taken any pictures of the garage room in progress but will probably this week. I did however take pictures yesterday when we were rearranging the den. Our plan was to remove our ugly old second hand couch that didn't really match anything, along with at least 2 of the 3 recliners. Replace it with Sue living room furniture and end tables and coffee table, which blends nicely with the dark paneling in there.

As you can see, it was quite the mess in there yesterday. That is one of Chris' many cousins, Marda, who had the spent the night at the request of Nicole and was helping us yesterday morning.
Here is one of our friend Kenneth wrestling a chiar out the back door.

We finally got it all put back together and it seems there is more space than ever! I never realized just how much room three recliners took up. We still have to put a few minor touches in there and I will post those later this week.

I will try very hard to blog this week, but I'm subbing almost all week, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed:))

I'm sorry to not have posted a picture of the illusive Sue yet, but I will soon. I'm just not ever able to catch her standing still for very long, lol.

Hope everyone has a great week. Oh btw, I got my Blog or Treat Buddy match from Shannon at the Mommy - Files, and went shopping Friday afternoon to get stuff to send her. So hopefully I will be getting my Blog or Treat box soon and I will share it with you. We are going to put our Halloween decorations up probably tomorrow evening, since we have to finish up Nicoles science Fair project today.

Adios for now;)

Wow talk about cluttered! Was that the den or garage?
Have fun getting it all sorted out, and I look forward to progress shots!

Good luck getting it all done. It sounds like you've got a lot to do! I don't envy you, but I hope Sue gets her room soon :)
