A little calm in the chaos

28 Aug A little calm in the chaos

Once again, we have a few too many things going on in our household!  The kids headed back to school this week (Yeah!), but it’s that week of limbo where we’re trying to figure out sports, school and work schedules, child care and getting back into the swing of things.  Then my “simple” project of tearing out the living room carpet and painting the wood floors turned into a hardwood floor installation (stay tuned for that post next week). And we’re going camping for the long weekend, so I’m trying to get all the gear packed up for that adventure.

For the last 5 days, my first floor has looked like this:

Craziness, right?!?  And it’s stressing me out. I am one of those people that needs order. I like organized, simple, clutter-free rooms, where everything has a place.  When paper/laundry/stuff starts piling up, I can feel the stress inching it’s way into my body.   I try to pretend it doesn’t bother me, but it does.  So, I am hoping (fingers crossed!) that the floor will be finished tonight, and tomorrow we can put all the furniture back in place.  In the meantime, here are some calming rooms to keep me inspired…and for you to enjoy!
