I washed all the windows on the second floor that could be accessed today, running the screens down to the patio for hosing and then back up again.
I applied privacy film to the lower panes of my bathroom windows, so that now I can run stark naked through the bathroom--which is what one often does in the bathroom. Even though my neighbors windows look directly into my bathroom, it's now possible to lie in the tub unobserved while still seeing the sky through the upper panes. And window coverings are now unnecessary.
Another builder/design conundrum: If you are going to put giant windows in a bathroom--windows that require shades or blinds, being able to access said shades or blinds without climbing into the bathtub and then out of it onto the far edge of the bathtub to do so would be sensible.
I unpacked boxes, moved boxes around from here to there, and swore at the boxes that are too heavy. I think I'm going to ask anyone who visits to carry a box of books up the stairs if they are able.
I washed linens and put them on the two new beds.
I made four stacks of sheets and blankets, getting ready for an onslaught of grandchildren.
And tonight, I'm going to sleep in a bed here for the first time.
The air bed is pushed into a corner waiting for guests. Hear that? It's me sighing with contentment.
