So, instead of focusing on how much stuff I still need to pack up, I'm imagining our new place and what I want to do with it. I have Ingrid's room all planned out--her new bed, her bookshelf, and some throw pillows. I found some fabric I think I need:
I want to make a small quilt for the bed, floor pillows, and curtains. I think the walls are a creamy color, so hopefully I won't have to repaint. I love to paint, but I'm getting sick of making a place my own and then having to move a year later...
The other place I have ideas for is the basement--our new playroom/sewing room! We have a little Ikea couch with a red cover, I want to get a cushy rug to put in front of it, we have two red shelving units to put toys on, and then Ingrid has her kitchen set. A friend has a bit of chalkboard paint leftover so we'll probably do a square of that on the wall, and have her little coloring table for an art corner. And my sewing area!! I finally get a chance to leave my sewing machine in one place! And have a stand up ironing board that I don't have to move. And all my fabric can be out and inspiring me, instead of being balled up in a linen closet. Maybe this way I'll use the fabric I have and quit buying more. ha! I doubt it.
Yep, don't want to deal with packing, so I'll just keep on daydreaming. I hate moving, I can't wait until we buy a house and won't have to uproot ourselves every year.
