Day 3: Before (denuded)

It's day 3 of my 'break'. That's always in quotes because there's no such thing as a real break for me - I actually have a meeting later today and need to get a document submitted to someone by the morning. Nevertheless, I am indeed sitting around unshowered in front of the Today Show, still finishing my coffee.

And - it's go time in the bedroom!

Ken still has work this week (our 'breaks' are staggered this year, annoyingly), so I'm doing the boring prep work so we can work together and do the fun stuff next week.

Here's the bedroom, with everything out (almost) and ready to go. Ick, it looks worse than we thought. This was the one room in the house deemed livable and not too bad when we moved in. Ready to move it to the "love it!" category...

Closet too (we added all this organization stuff after a frustrated year with the horrible, miniature poles the previous owner had installed. We'll probably keep it, but will think if there's anything more efficient we can do in here).

I also have to give a shout-out to Susie at Bangor Foursquare - during her break, she's doing a project that took us 3 years - her bathroom! After her day 2, she's way kicking our butts. Nice!

Hi Sarah - I have been following you for awhile and I thought I would finally say hello because I find your blog informative and occasionally hilarious. I recently started my own blog about the Four-square my fiance inherited, the work we've been doing to it and the treasures it contains. I hope you'll check it out!

Love your pdf's, by the way!
