In Which I Work On Ellen's Room Some More

I managed to put Ellen's curtains up today, and I didn't stab myself with any drapery pins or anything!  Of course the curtains are badly in need of a good ironing, but that will have to wait until I borrow an iron since I don't seem to actually own one anymore.  In my house, if it can't go in the washing machine, we don't buy it.  That's what happens when you live with a kid who drools on everything.  And it's not like Jer wears a suit to work or anything, so I'm not exactly ironing his dress shirts.

I can hear all you good housekeepers judging me.  Oh well.  Heck, some days I feel proud that I actually put on clothing, let alone wrinkle-free clothing.  Pajamas are pretty comfy.

Anyway, so Ellen's curtains are up, I put up her bullitin board and some small shelving, and her bedspread came in the mail today too, so the room is really starting to come together!  I still need to find her a floor lamp, a couple of occasional tables, put up an artwork/whatever hanging area (like this) above her desk, recover her window benches, hang up the one piece of art we got for the room and pick up a few odds and ends like a laundry hamper and some more wall shelving.  I'm starting to get a feel for what the room will look like when it's ready for her to move in, though, and I hope she finds it as cozy and comfy as I do.  I can't wait to see how she makes it her own!

Ha! I once told a friend (who regularly wields an iron) my laundry method - wash and dry all week, and spend one day folding. She asked if I didn't spend a lot of time ironing. No! We don't really wear anything that wrinkles!

Is Ellen a wheelchair user? Or other mobility aid - walker, crutches, cane/s?

Nope! She walks without any mobility aids.
