My new space is great! Brighter, cleaner, bigger! Okay, that's a lie. The light we bought didn't work and was retured, the new bulbs we ended up with are daylight so it's cooler than I'm used to and it is brighter because I don't have any window coverings. Cleaner, it is in the picture but if you squint and imagine all my suff in the corner where the pic was taken from, a shelf in the far corner where the outlet is, two tables at the end, a tv, and 2 smaller tables, oh, don't forget the 5 empty boxes, 2 extension cords and numerous full boxes on the floor. At least it is bigger so that I can fit all of that in there!
Kerry is on holidays this week. Which is great for getting all the renovations done. He's done so much and I know he doesn't enjoy it that much. He went mtn. biking this morning and it was 6 degrees outside, good thing I don't go out before noon! I can't understand where summer went. Less than 4 months until Christmas, for anyone counting.
OH! I totally forgot. Be on the lookout for a new L on the road! Shaun has his Learners. He hasn't actually been behind the wheel yet. But don't worry, he's going to driving schoool. Not letting him pick up our bad habbits!
And just so Emily doesn't feel left out, she's getting her haircut on Friday! She wants bangs and an inverted bob. Unfortunately, the inspiration for the style is a Japanese animation (anime) character and she has purple hair, which Emily also would like. We've done the fushia streaks, but the whole head?

I bribed the kids into helping me start to move my wordly belongings into my new room.
I would take a picture, but ...read previous post as to why I can't. So here's a picture of my 'old' room and why I haven't been able to play for a few weeks.
I have most of my stuff moved in and there's still approximately 150 square feet to do my happy dance in!
Emily says I need a comfy chair so that she can come down and visit while I am 'working'. I say I need a fridge and a bed, maybe even a lock on the door!

I guess I didn't mention where my camera is and a few people have been concerned that I mis-placed it, lost it.
No, I wouldn't do that!
I had to get it serviced, it could be gone for about 4 weeks or so the salesman told me. I was sure to ask if it would take 6 months, 3 months or less and he said he would like to think 4 weeks. I sure hope it's not longer than that.
I may have to buy a roll of film for our 'old fashioned' camera.
We worked all day on my new scrap space, my hubby is such a trooper! I will start moving in tomorrow, finished or not. I am very excited! I was a bit unsure about the paint colour on the wood panelling but now that the trim is on, it looks pretty good.
I have a new appreciation for the guys that do the caulking on the mouldings, the Finisher, let me lay tile any day over doing the caulking.
Maybe tomorrow night at this time I will be sitting in my new room, maybe stamping a few cards or planning a scrapbook page. Everyone knows I've been itching to make something! And no, not anything made of wood. Sorry Nancy! Although Kerry did pull out my saw and sander to trim some mouldings.

I'm trying not to think about it. But every once in awhile I wonder where my camera is and I get sad. By now, I think it should be in Calgary. I hope it is in Calgary or the past 3 days have been wasted being cameraless.
On the bright side, we just finished putting the trim up in my new scrapping space. Just have to fill the nail holes and touch it up. Hopefully, Sunday will be the big day to move in. Then I will have something to take my mind off where my camera isn't.
I was toying with the idea but too scared to do it. And now here it is.
Can I do it?
Will I be able to keep it up?
Wait and see.
