As if Hurricane Adrienne was not enough for one room to withstand
Tornado Some of a Kind hit.
This my dear friends is the state of my sewing room.
It all began with good intentions you see. I started with the boys room - rearranged their furniture - had some book shelves made to fit into their dormer windows (remember we have a crafty furniture maker friend) - moved their toys in their room - then gave them my two bookshelves from my sewing room (what you see unloaded on my sewing table was the contents of said bookshelves) - brought their old (smaller) bookshelf down to my sewing room - then I had to make room for my books in the sitting room since my "new" bookshelf would not accommodate all my fabric and
my collection of craft books that are gathering dust books. Then I had (really - I had to) move the love seat from the sitting room into the sewing room so I could then move Rocky's grandparents drop leaf table that is so precious to us but darn if it gets in the way into the sitting room so we can get a fish tank. Oh - and so that I could move the half wide secretary from the foyer to where the drop leaf table was so that I can make room for the piano that is now still in the sewing room acting more as a tv stand than a piano.
You still with me?
Don't worry. I'm worn out too.
Never mind that each time Rocky moves a piece of furniture he swears that he will not move it (or any other again), or that I have been sick for a week now and still do not seem to be getting over it, or that John just got over pink eye and an ear infection, and that I now have pink eye in both eyes, and while rearranging and stirring up tons of dust and seeing too many things scurry away that my (very expensive and worst purchase I ever made) vacuum has stopped working - again.
Life is good.
Even if I can't wear mascara for a week ~shudders~.
So. I will gladly take any suggestions you might have regarding vacuum cleaners. The weather systems keep changing around here and I need something reliable to clean up the mess!
