The nice upside of the middle of the night leakage of the water filter last night (thank God I heard it dripping when I was up nursing Ben or it might have done some real damage overnight!) is that today we organized the coat closet.
Everything was already out all over the living room. Only things that actually belonged went back in. Some coats will be donated. Some things will find a new home. A few things will go out via Freecycle. And we have a plan for a coat rack and shoe rack for the kids’ stuff. And for a small table or shelf by the door to organize incoming and outgoing mail.
And Dom now has firm plans to rent a carpet steamer. Oh when that door mat came up, the difference between the color of the carpet underneath! We knew the light colored carpet was going to be the bane of our existence when we bought this house.
