A place for everything

I’ve spent most of the weekend cleaning house.  It’s not that it was that messy, but I’ve been trying to unpack a few more things and get some boxes out of here in addition to general cleaning like vacuuming, laundry, dishes, etc.  I still have a stack of boxes in the living room that need to be unpacked, but I can’t really do anything until I get some shelves for the office area.  I also still have all my books and photos packed up and sitting in the den area.  The guest room has several boxes that need to be dealt with at some point, but I’ll get to it in a few weeks I hope.  My bedroom closet has all my clothes up and shoes in racks.  The kitchen has everything put up and the dishes are clean.  The living room is free of the paper that I’ve had all over the place for a while.  My desk is cleared of junk though there’s still some sorting and filing that I need to do at some point.  I plan to buy a storage cabinet and shelf for the living room soon.  I thought about doing it today, but my car is full of boxes that I’m taking to school tomorrow.  The garage, however, is becoming the catch-all for empty boxes and things that I don’t know where to put for the moment.  I guess it’s just too much to expect me to have a completely clean garage.

It’s hot here today.  Right now it is 109 degrees and we’re supposed to hit 111.  I wish we’d get some rain soon.  I need to mow my lawn, but will wait until later when the temperature starts to go down.  I need to go pick up a gas container and get some gas for the mower.  I also need to fill up my car.  Now that I’m not making lengthy trips back to Canyon for a while, I’d like to see how long I can go before filling up. 

Yesterday I finally got my hair cut.  It was getting much too long.  It feels much better now.   I also picked up a new accent table where I can put stuff when I come home after work.  I also bought an over the door ironing board but realize that it didn’t have the over the door hooks.  So I’ve got to call the number on the instruction sheet about getting that sent to me. 

I haven’t found my small camera – not sure if it’s lost or I just haven’t gotten to it yet.  I have my bigger canon camera, but the battery is dead and I haven’t found the charger.  But I took some pictures of the house with furniture in place with my iPhone.  Keep in mind, I don’t have much in the way of decorations yet – no curtains, little on the walls, but at least you can see how things are set up.  Enjoy.
