Just a Question...

Why is it that your house seems so small when you're trying to organize, but yet so BIG when you're cleaning??? Am I the only one?

We've been doing a lot of re-arranging at the Keene household. The guest room is becoming Tucker's room and the office is becoming the guest room. Which means, the former office is nonexistent. Now, I use the term "office" very loosely. Really, that room was home to our desktop computer (that never gets used since we both have laptops), a large dog crate (again, that doesn't get used), and all the other "stuff" that has gotten thrown in there over the pass 3 years. Getting rid of most of it wasn't too bad, it just involved a lot of creative organization. The most difficult thing with all this re-organization project was combining the 3 closets in our house (one in each of the bedrooms) into 2 so Tucker has his closet to himself. That means, we had to move all Wes's work clothes (shirts, ties, dress pants, etc.) out. Let me just tell you, if Wes ever complains about the number of shoes I have, I will definitely be bringing up his tie collection!

Anyway, we have made a lot of progress and we're almost there! (I'll post before and after pics later so you can really appreciate all our work!) Wes has painted the "former office" and the guest bed is getting moved in tonight. This weekend, Tucker's room will get it's second coat of paint. Then, all the fun can began, right Wes?!

I completely agree about the house seeming small when you need space and huge when you go to clean it. You will be so glad that you took the time to prepare when Tucker comes. And I know you - you will have it perfect!
