Making A House A Home Part 3

The painting of the bedrooms is finally done (which also means we don’t have to move our King size bed and mattress every day)! It also means I have been moving my dressers back in our bedroom all by myself, as well as split up the girls in their own rooms (and I’ve also moved their furniture around too, all by myself (Thank you crossfit!) while Ben was turning his blackberry harvest into 6 L of blackberry jam and making banana bread with the help of Aunt Sandy!

Once I was done vacuuming and organizing furniture upstairs, I tackled cleaning the ceilings, walls and mouldings of the entire upstairs, staircase and I did the kitchen and half-bath on the main floor as well as the ceilings in the dining room, but I needed a break after that because my neck was killing me from looking up all the time! All I have left to clean are the walls in the dining room and the walls and ceiling in the living room and I will be done with the major cleaning of the house and will just have to maintain my usual weekly cleaning.

I had originally planned on putting Béatrice in her little toddler bed in her room tonight, but since Rina won’t have a proper bed until we receive her new furniture (6-8 weeks), I didn’t want her to sleep on the floor, so we kept her in the toddler bed and Béatrice in her crib until then. I sure hope the transition to separating the girls’ bedroom goes smoothly! I will take pictures tomorrow and post them as I didn’t have time today.

This all means we might be able to have an open house next weekend! So very excited to show our friends our new home! 🙂

In the meantime, I will leave you with a video of Rina playing a pretty awesome game after dinner. Notice she’s jumping on her new bed sheets! 😉
