One big motivator is that I volunteered to have our women's scripture group meet at our home. That's a great incentive to get a few things done.
So I shopped the house and brought in a couch from downstairs. It's really my brother's couch, and we are just babysitting it, but it works so much better here. And I can keep an eye on it and make sure the kids don't climb on it and destroy it. That's the worst, to wreck something that doesn't even belong to you!
I tried to get a good picture of Trent cutting through the wall in his office, but the dust was so thick!
And ten minutes before the meeting was to start, we looked like this.
And I still have something to look forward to!
