Which Jane Austen character are you?
If you got mostly ‘L' you are Elizabeth Bennet.
You are spirited and quick-witted. You like nothing more than to be outdoors in the fresh air or at a lively ball, however, you are also able to enjoy your own company at home with a book. You are stubborn, but fair and loved by all those around you. You love to make jokes and laugh at nonsensical things,and tease people but you detest snobbery of any kind and won't be patronised by people who think themselves superior to you. You are often too quick to judge people but you are not afraid to admit when you are in the wrong.

Downsizing and reorganizing
I am on a mission to get our apartment under control. We have collectively accumulated a lot of stuff, not all of it in regular use or with a useful purpose. I am trying to weed out what we have so that I can have a garage sale in a couple of weeks along with my sister. I am determined to cut the clutter and get as organized as possible before I start to get really pregnant looking so that if we do end up moving to our new home in the fall it won't be a huge undertaking. I am planning to pack up the large majority of my books this week as I just don't really have the time for much reading right now. I will also pack up most of our VHS tapes as we rarely watch them. I have been sorting through my clothing and have got rid of a few garbage bags full already and still have more to go. I want to keep only clothing that looks good on me and that I feel good in and also things that won't be out of style next year once the baby has been born.
In my previous post I mentioned the living room closet. I am also planning to tackle the dining room closet. It hosts all of our towels and sheets as well as miscellaneous household items and decorative items not in use. It needs to be edited and reorganized so that if the doors are left open Hendrik will not hurt himself on the contents. I also plan to stash all of our board games inside there as well as they were shifted from the living closet reno.
That's what I'm up to for now. I am off to take some before pictures so that I can show you the transformation(s).

New "office" space
I was tired of our spare room being the catch-all for anything and everything we didn't know what to do with as well a home for all of our collective hobbies. It was just too cluttered. Our apartment has a ridiculous number of closets - there are even closets in the living room and dining room - so I decided to reclaim the living room closet for our computer, CDs, DVDs, filing, and spare blankets for cozying up during movies. I cleared it out, painted it a nice cherry strawberry red and then moved the shelf down to desk height. With a little help from my dad we braced the shelf so it's sturdy enough and drilled some holes in the top of the work surface to feed the assorted cords and cables through.
Now we have a designated spot for our computer and paper work and it's in the main living area which allows us to all be together more often and frees up more space in the spare room. Yay!
I will add pictures to this post later once I get the closet organized the way I want it.

Hooray!!
It's official - we're having another baby! We've know for quite some time but are only starting to tell people now. I am 8.5 weeks pregnant and our baby is due December 13 of this year. We are very excited about this new little brother or sister for Hendrik! :)
