While all of the absolute necessities have been located, there is still quite a lot of unpacking to do. We have survived a week amidst boxes and bags
and did I mention, boxes?
I know I need to set order to this space. There is something about living in chaos that sets everyone on-edge. If things are organized, neat and put-away, it will lead to comfort, and maybe some peace - at least in this space that we occupy.
I would like this to be a place to connect and relax, away from the noise outside. I imagine this as a place where friends can come in, sit and have conversations about every day things and plans for the future, and maybe even learn new things.
As I weed through boxes, sorting, saving, sentimentalizing (is that a word? I needed alliteration...) I work toward a sense of knowing we are "home" in this place, and look forward to making this home together as a family.
So while I may not know where all of the books are, or where the mouse for the computer is, nope, not that box...I know as I unpack, I will find these things and so much more!
How do you use your space? And would you like to use it for a different purpose?
