the smell of my desperation has become a stench


So my nesting instinct has kicked in, and it’s only made worse by the fact that at the beginning of every year I get the urge to throw everything away. Last week we cleaned out the office, and up next is Leta’s room. I’m still waiting on a set of curtain rods to be delivered, but in the meantime I’m getting everything ready to pack away, and I’ve decided to hang various artwork and pictures of her on the blank walls. So I picked up a dozen or so of these RIBBA frames from Ikea to keep everything uniform. I’ll be sure to post pictures once we’ve got everything finished, including one of Leta screaming because she realizes we threw all that trash away.
