progress has been slow but sure!
my sweet sister painting the trim to help me out. "make sure you don't get my face!" since i understand the sentiment-i didn't.
cleaned the floor and it's pretty much ready for my the big furniture. now i have to convince eric to clean out the desk and antique hotel mailbox and give it back to me. don't worry, i bought him another desk (rolltop from pete) to replace it with. then i'll get my strong baby boy (and a couple of his friends bribed with food) to move it for me.
