The roommates moved out yesterday. It was supposed to be the day before, but nothing goes smoothly here. Now we have the task of cleaning everything (absolutely everything. I found myself vacuuming window panes and scrubbing banisters), unpacking things that we were too cramped to unpack, and painting over god-awful paint jobs. These things can be frustrating, but they remind me just how far we've come. A year ago, we were struggling to get by. Now we have so much to be thankful for. It's not a lot, but it's just what we wanted. Unfortunately, I can't bring myself to take photos at this stage. It's chaos in here, and I'd like to show a slightly cleaner set of "before" pictures. Until then, enjoy a few "get things done" songs.
