All of this had to be removed to make room for the ladder necessary for cutting the scuttle hole that the drywaller forgot to cut for us.
I am trying not to pile it all back in there, but it's really hard. I did move my sewing desk in there and found out that the unplumbed toilet is a perfect height for me when I'm spinning. So, I'm slowly filling it up again. Money will be tight for a while (Christmas, you know) so I'm sure we won't be getting the plumber out anytime soon. I have piles of stuff all over the house & refuse to put it back in here until it's all sorted. So far, the photos are in the kitchen, my spinning, knitting & quilting supplies are in Jacob's room. He's in Berea for school most of the time now, so I've sort of claimed that space.
Anyway, it's a slow process but I have the living room cleared enough that we should be able to get our Christmas tree sometime this week. This is the first time in 8 years that we haven't had our tree up and decorated for Meredith's birthday. It's a little less festive, but we'll survive.
