Minor triumph for the week - cleaning and organizing.

Spent last night shoving boxes and crates and junk out of our bedroom, reorganizing it to fix the damage to routines and layout from the shelf construction period. The bedrooms a LOT more open now, with my night table beside the headboard, a walkspace for Whines (and Dsukit's favorite tight little corner available for her to nest in again) beside his side, an excavated path to my computer room, and all the stuff we'd been stubbing our toes on in much more logical places, and the indecent "art" back on the walls, for what that's worth, it's amusing if nothing else. That felt REALLY good to get that done, the bedroom had been increasingly oppressive lately. Whew.

Tackled a few more rooms - we've been really bad lately about putting stuff down to deal with later, and the house is really feeling it. And there just isn't as much room as there used to be. The house has almost no internal storage, and the garage is honestly pretty crowded already. I've got a couple of things I'd like to get rid of that'll help, but it's just total disarray back there right now. We need to stop using the guest bedroom as a storage bin, but it's hard to avoid...
