My single gal co-worker (Kim) came over to the house on Wednesday and helped me out a ton. She was exactly what I needed. We focused on the living room and bedroom. We moved all the gifts out of the living room and rearranged the furniture around the way that I imagine would look best. It looks sooooo much better. Mind you, all the bachelor furniture is still in there, but at least I know that my idea for furniture arrangement works. :)
Then we put together the other nightstand that I had purchased. And we put things up in the bedroom while watching LOST.
There is still PLENTY to do, but I feel that order is coming. And it was nice to have a friend over.
