I want to thank everyone for their kind encouragement. I feel like I'm really getting out of the slump. Thanks everyone, you're awesome!
I know it doesn't look like much in the picture, but trust me, before I started it was just a huge pile of boxes. I actually set up my glass table and unpacked quite a bit. I'm still waiting on my pegboard. J needs to help me put it up. I was going to paint before I did any of this, but I've decided that I'm just not going to get around to painting this room for a while. I'd rather be organized and have everything put away then wait for the paint color. And I'm glad it was dark outside when I took this picture, or you would have seen the even bigger mess that is known as our three season porch.
I grabbed a bunch of the magazines (yes, they're free, so if you live in Madison, there is no excuse for not getting one), I'm sure my mom will want one. No matter how old you get, mom's will still collect things like this just like they did when you were in the second grade. ;-)
