The Crap Trap is Gone

IMG_2088I am soooo excited!

No, the Cubs didn’t win the world series… yet.  It’s only spring, so plenty of time.

No, the laundry isn’t magically folding and then placing itself in the proper chest of drawers.

No, I’m not curled up on the couch reading a good book on this rainy day.

I am soooo excited, because of what you don’t see.  Yes, I know you see my cereal bowl and orange juice cup and the book I’m reading (The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton) and the rainbow cloud Little Miss C made at school.  And you see, in the distance, the glorious laundry pile on the couch, which needs to be folded and put away.  Hooray!IMG_2184

Yep, on this day, I am thrilled to see that clean laundry pile on the couch.  Why?  Because I don’t see the crap piled on top of the half wall.  In fact, I don’t even see the half wall.  It’s gone.  Adios.  Ciao.  Au revoir.  I am so happy.

IMG_2166You’d think demolishing a half wall would be simple.  But not here.  That half wall did many things besides hold stuff.  It had two outlets, a cable connection, and two return registers.  Thankfully, I have a good contractor who moved all the necessities and wham!  The wall came down.  Removing the half wall is the first step in some big changes around here.  Stay tuned for more surprises.  I’m so happy.  I said that already and it’s still true!
