You have reached the end of week seven. Only one more week to go.
Is the sun out where you live? It is here. Spring is finally upon us here in the Northeast, so it's really a perfect weekend for throwing open the windows and airing out the bedroom or any room you're working on. This is really the last weekend of Cure work as a group as next weekend is devoted to getting some folks over to see what you have done. Therefore, think about how you want to spend this last chunk of time and keep in mind that you want - as much as possible - to bring it in for a landing after this. Work hard. Make the most of the weekend. Feel how happy you are making your home.
Quote of the Day:
...your post has just made me realise how far I have come on this cure. I stumbled across AT last year, got intrigued, bought the book, bought flowers, poked about a bit in the nastier corners of my home and then realised that it was really ill and needed drastic surgery.
I've been feeling a little bit of a fraud in this group cure, as I'm not really following the book. I intended to when I started out, but as my confidence has grown, so have my ambitions!...
This Week's Assignment:
In the Deep Treatment you are diving headfirst into the bedroom, working to declutter and luxurify your space. I do recommend an air purifier and use them ourselves in both of our rooms. While it may seem to some like an indulgence, keep in mind that indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air and that 8 hours of breathing while asleep means you are sucking in a good deal of the room at night.
One Room Workout? Start Cleaning up! Clean up is as important as set up and it usually takes longer than you think, so start in on it now. Additionally, take a close look at your artwork this week. I always find that people do a disservice to their art by hanging it either too high or in an unflattering grouping. Fixing this can really make a room sing.
Info:The Cure posts will go up twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays (or sometimes Friday or Saturday), allowing for plenty of comment space. We will be pulling comments and pics to the front page post each week and everyone is urged to take pics, tag them with "apartmenttherapycure" and post them in our Flickr Pools:
