For New Years eve this year we didn't stay up, not even close we were out for the count by 10:30pm so it was no biggy for our family to get up early and head out for a fun breakfast at Denny's. Denny's had a fun Lord of the Rings menu Cory wanted to try so we made the visit, but we were surprised to find out they were out of nearly every breakfast item on the menu; we joked,"Tell us what you do have left, it will be a much shorter list".
After breakfast we ran to Cory's office to grab a giant bookshelf they were tossing. The poor kids had the most awkward ride back home under the case. Our goal was to finally get the partially finished basement cleaned up and organized into a usable room for the new year. We really hadn't don anything with this room since we moved in the home in April, it was our unpacked boxes and misc item graveyard.
After many hours (2 days worth), however, we got the place all sorted away and I LOVE this space now. Cory got free carpet samples from his carpet vendor to the kids had a blast laying all of them out in a random pattern. I have a fun little sewing area, we have bookcases to pit all our books and random other trinkets, and I now am able to go and enjoy biking on our new free exercise bike 3 days a week.
It is fun to have a new usable room on the house and believe me we do use it, it is a big multipurpose & I love having it always clean!
