Working on the railroad



We moved the computer today. It is now next to the kitchen by the TV. When we get the living room floor in and the room painted, the TV will be moved over into where the computer was, and we will move the computer over centered between the window and the kitchen.

Also, I have went through drawers and drawers and drawers and thrown away many many things, organizing what is Left. We are packing much less baggage today.



This shows the empty room where the computer was. The door is gone and the wall is ready for George to put in the section where the door was. He got the pieces he took off down all in one piece each, so he will cut those to make this wall. He also took out the old carpet today. We plan on finishing the sub floor Christmas weekend and painting the whole thing New Year's week end. We plan on getting a good start for the new year. Then, it is on to the kitchen. It is all going to look so much better all painted country white just like the back bedroom.

It felt good to throw away so much of the clutter in the drawers. I am going to have to do the same thing with the kitchen.

How do you decide what to throw away?
It is all progressing.

Betty....try to throw it all way....If you try this I'm sure you will get rid of at least 1 thing in a drawer....you are a little thrifty...They say if you have not used it in 6 months you can live without it....I have told my girls before..."Dump the whole damn thing and don't even tell me what was in it!'

Bill and kid s have been here since Friday...I have had the urge to make the house look 'show room'...meaning shinging up everything, dsuting and all and placing pretty things back on the coffee table and everything...Now I tell you I was wanting to do this really bad. it was almost all I could think about...but their stuff was all over and I could not do that...they cleared out their stuff late last night...I had it all by the door...this morning I have no urge to make things show room....
