Hooray for maceelaine's clean and organized kitchen!
Now she just wants to add some framed photos and a rug.
Think positive. I know a lot of you feel like you're falling behind. But please keep in mind: The Cure is about making your home healthier even just a little bit. Part of the reason AT does the eight-step program twice a year is so we can help motivate and encourage each other. From what I've seen on this site and in our Flickr group, that's definitely happening. So kudos to all participants.
Oh, and you know what the Cure is *not* about? Making you feel guilty or overwhelmed. So please remember to write out your List of Accomplishments and pat yourselves on the back for what you have been able to do in between changing diapers, going to work, running the usual errands, socializing with friends, etc.
Speaking of accomplishments! Check out what your fellow Cure members are up to:
- Mizrobot's two weeks of kitchen clean-up have paid off. And look at her lovely Pyrex collection.
- jessicat/jmamacat finished blik'ing out the bedroom.
- Jillian1977 is moving right along with her Cube Cure.
- ATers are also discussing their successes in this Flickr discussion.
To keep the Cure on the front-burner here, at the end of each weekday, I'll move the most recent post to the top of the page. That way, people can easily access the current discussion. (I hope that helps, Anne!)
Reminder about this week's assignment: In the Deep Treatment, think about color and focus on the hallway — an area that is often overlooked, yet is extremely important for the health of your home. Building a Landing Strip is key on a couple of levels: It will help cut down on your clutter (e.g., junk mail) and will provide a pleasant first impression when you walk into your home. On a more fun note: Start putting together an invitation for Week 8's gathering!
(Psst ... I've got a confession: I don't think I'll be able to plan a party at the end of the Cure. I'll be happy if I can just plan a nice, home-cooked dinner to celebrate the completion of the program maybe break out the good, wedding-gift china.)
With the One Room Workout, you are going to deepen your research online, get color and start calling in for back-up. If you're having trouble finding something, check out the AT:SF Guide (stores, services), post a comment below or send in the question to sf (at) apartmenttherapy (dot) com.
