A broken car, two classes and a clean/messy room

This has been quite a week in my life. I had my first two graduate school classes, which went well. They were exactly what I expected, which I guess is a good thing??

A not so good thing is that today I took my car in because it was making a funny noise, and $800 later they had figured out that the roters were being eaten by the caliper which was being eaten by the hydraulics (I think?). Bad news? Car is in the shop until early next week. Good news? I'm driving a rental car PRIUS and it ROCKS! As in, if you offered to let me keep it forever I would do it forever. (Hear that Toyota? Let's talk...).

When we moved in, my sewing room was a dumping ground. I finally got it cleaned out a few months ago, but during our summer program at work I made a frantic last minute birthday present, 10 frantic last minute quilt guild swap squares, and probably a few other frantic last minute things.

I couldn't figure out why my crafting mojo was gone.  I went upstairs to my crafting room. It was a mess. I almost took a before picture for you, but then thought better of it. I spent a lot of time on Saturday organizing and I swear immediately after it was finished, I had so much inspiration! And not only because I re-discovered a few quilt kits and more than a few half finished projects!!

Fast forward to Tuesday, and Zac's dad came to help give my closet a makeover. We have sliding mirrored doors, which I hate first of all because they are mirrors, and most of all because they slide. Once the doors came off, the closet looked twice as big! Side note: if you have any ideas for the 6 mirrored doors we'll have left over after this, send them my way!

The closet is a two day job, and they aren't going to be able to finish it until next week. So all of my clothes now live..... in the sewing room. Sheesh. So much for getting my groove back!
