It has been ebb and flow...it seems like so little has been done but I just uploaded new photos to the Make A Way photo album and reflecting on the behind the scenes stories, there has been a huge amount of work performed mostly by others and as much as I can do also. Toward the end of last week I had to take 2 days of bedrest and I'm in that mode again today. My father purchased some anti-fatigue mats and I went back to Lowes to purchase another set...I'm realizing that basic work functions must include ergonomical comfort. Peter ordered a chair from Overstock.com for my sewing chair...I purchased some daylight bulbs from Lowes, and adjustable height tables from Costco. Later this evening my youngest son and his friend will move in a comfy tv chair and ottoman I found on Craigslist...I had intended to wait on this but it was such a great chair going for dirt cheap that I didn't want to pass on it. We'll pick it up this evening. I've made a request on Freecycle for ceiling tiles but so far no replies, but I've managed to unload a coffee grinder and a round banquet table to other freecyclers.
The funny thing that has kept me chuckling when I'm in the basement is that my mother's ironing board is actually a wood one...an old wood one. I've seen these when I'm browsing at the 2nd hand shops but didn't realize that my mother still uses one! You can see it in the photos across from the tv.
