Getting Ready for an Week-long Guest & the House Wasn't All Unpacked from Moving

The perfect plan in unpacking and moving means you do it as you move in;  you have gone through everything before you move;  and you are able to unpack a little everyday, while keeping up the settled areas of the house and other necessary daily chores.  However, as hard as I have worked, the reality is I had to push hard to get the guest room company ready.  I have had multiple roadblocks in the last year.  In fact this time last year, I was in the hospital;  because I had just had hip and joint surgery.  

I will take some pictures of some of the work I have done, and please understand -- I do not considered this the finished product.  It is only the beginning the amateur decorator says.    I will have fun  tweaking, fixing, painting, hanging pictures, and getting rid of more clutter through the new year.  I may even begin posting my discards on Facebook.  Maybe , you could join me. 

I got to the point last night and today that some boxes were going to have to go behind a folding screen.  I could not do anymore.  And hubby could not help, because he had a concert and had to pick up his mother.  Right about know, a massage therapist would be the perfect before Christmas present.  I forgot how many places could hurt in my body.  Right now, I think most of them are quite active. Big OUCH!!

I think I have had enough quiet time to go to bed.  My body would appreciate the sleep.  Merry Christmas!  And may you have the energy you need for your activities.  God bless you.

  1. Merry Christmas to you and all the family. I hope you feel better soon. To me, family aren't guests and as long as the br is clean and nobody trips over any boxes etc. then you have done your job. It took me a long, long time to learn that. They love you and know what you are going through, and all that matters is your company. Love you my dear friend. hope everyone is well.

  2. I don't consider family guests either, but I hate for the house to be totally wrecked when they get here. The bedroom was not even usuable, because that was the catch all. You could not even see the bed. I actually left one room undone. It had gotten more messed up in the picking up. Now how does that happen? I also had to make sure there would be nothing to trip over. That would not be cool for an 80 year old.


It's always lovely hearing from you. xoxo, Deborah
