Craft Room

After a conversation with Hilton about discipline, which actually had nothing to do with the number of yet-to-be-unpacked boxes laying around my house, and a good nights sleep, I woke up yesterday morning totally focused and motivated to get the craft room / office useable. To appease the hyper little puppy I turned off the a/c and left the back door open so he could run about, which made for a very sweaty day. First I unpacked and cleared out almost ALL of the boxes from the room, which was pretty full when I started. Then I got the craft table in place in front of the window and went to move the desk in from the guest room. Getting that HUGE desk to turn that little corner was a feat of physics requiring the removal of both doors and some pretty fancy manuevers and lifting on my part. I thought about waiting for help, but I really, really wanted to get it done. I stacked all of the canvas bins of yarn by the craft table and look at the piles of yet-to-be-catagorized yarn still needing storage, I went through boxes of desk stuff, slowly putting things away, I went through clothes and added to the "goodwill" and "I wish" piles, I stacked the boxes of books together to await the arrival some day of a bookshelf, etc. And to reward myself at the end of it all, I threw down my yoga matt on the now clear floor and did a full hour before running off to my mom's to eat dinner and knit a little while.

So even though I didn't make it to Loops, or sit in front of the tv and knit, or any of those other things I thought about doing yesterday, it was a really good, productive day and i am totally excited about my new space. Having use of that room makes the house seem bigger. Its so odd.

Yay for my new craft room!
