it’s curtains for you!  

Young Indiana’s room is pretty well sorted out now. I unpacked the toys a few days ago, and today went grimly to tackle the task of lining the new curtains with blackout liners. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, and after about two hours I had big dramatic red curtains hung.

Nana (Ted’s mom) made the terrific superheroes quilt on his bed. :) (Grandma, my mom, went forth into Dublin to find those curtains, after I totally failed to find any after checking every shop in Drogheda. Indy’s room is a joint effort. :))

Also, last night I apparently just couldn’t stand it, and dealt with the Junk Bookcase after all. At this point I can do nothing more with the library until I get a sofabed and a desk/dresser/shelf/thingy, the latter of which, assuming we NEVER GET ANY MORE BOOKS, could conceivably replace one of the bookcases now in the library…

I had ambitions to finish sorting out the Long Room today, but I don’t see it happening. Still, if I manage it tomorrow, that’s the downstairs dealt with (save the kitchen stuff I still don’t have shelves for) and mostly I’ll just have the office left…

Maybe there’s hope of doing some actual work next week. Not house work. Work-work. WRITING work. Do you remember that that’s my job? :}

"assuming we NEVER GET ANY MORE BOOKS"

Compares to

"Assuming spherical cows"

and

"Assuming winged pigs"

Yeah, well. :) Even if we manage to just keep the TBR shelf at its approximate current size, without keeping too many of them, we'd be fine...

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA.

But I'm still amazed by how much you're accomplishing. even if it has apparently rendered you delusional.

I'm getting better about buying e-books, see, so perhaps there's hope... :)

Nope. Sorry, no hope at all :-)
