Starting Fresh...

my cousin is allergic to my dog, and she's staying with us. last night I stayed up all night sweeping, vaccuuming, dusting and cleaning...I haven't had time to clean lately and I don't want her to get sick because of our dog. I also vaccuumed the the car wash...yes I do know how hillbilly that is. tonight I will do the upstairs and the bathrooms. but what I'm most excited about is that Todd is going to let me remodel the basement. I'm going to put in a new shower and knock out some of a wall and set up a new wall and put in a sink...lots of fun stuff that I've been wanting to do...I'm also going to redo the living room in the basement. I'm painting the walls and moving the furniture around...I want it to appear bigger. so I'm taking the entertainment center and burning it (yes burning it) then I'm going to paint the walls....maybe. the walls look like real wood with varnish but really they're paneling...dark paneling. I might do something different with it. then I'm moving the tv to a different wall and the furniture is moving around. the toys will be moved and the end tables are leaving (they're hideous). the best part is that I don't have to be to work until 1 all next week so I can get a really good start on all of this. we'll also be doing some home decor shopping in the near future. mostly I'm looking for picture frames so that I can start hanging pictures of my family throughout my house. I seriously have no pictures of my family in my house. I have lots of pictures just none being displayed except in the basement, I have a large collection of pictures I used to display at the old house but didn't have the right place for them in this house. I would like a picture wall. I also want pictures of my kids on a covered bridge for the dining room because that room is done in covered bridges. I want to look at my house more before I do anything!
