Just When I Thought It Wouldn't Happen....

You all know that I've been PLANNING for a closet remodel. Planning... it's good but it's not action. Action gets things DONE! Well, right now my husband is working a planned outage at his plant and is working so many hours he has not time left over for my projects. That's where the magic happens.

Just when I thought it wasn't going to happen, at least not anytime soon, I get this call from my son-in-law, Mike V. , saying he can work it into his schedule!! He came over on Monday to take out all the old stuff and he's coming back tomorrow and the next day to finish the project! Tonight we buy supplies. I'm pinching myself in disbelief that it is actually happening. It's one thing to see it on paper and totally another to be able to actually have it complete. I hope to be able to paint the closet before putting everything back in so it will look and smell fresh and new.

So I created a slideshow, a bit boring if you see it for what it is... but empty is good, REALLY GOOD! Because until you get it looking like this, you can't move forward and fill that space with good things. I think that is my message with my word of the year this year, Recreate..... emptying, sorting out what does and doesn't work, freshening things up, simplifying and then creating beauty once again from that "empty" spot. Hopefully less cluttered, more useful and less "stuff".... way less stuff!
