Our daughter starts her summer session of classes today…well, I should say summer session of “class” since she is only taking one but it is an important one since it is a prerequisite for any of the the other classes she takes for her major in Communications. The apartment/townhouse she and three of her other friends have leased came with a full year contract so even though the plans were for her to come home for the summer, once we realized she would be paying rent anyway…and the rents for anything in Chapel Hill, NC are outrageous…that’s just this Mom’s opinion….we decided the best plan was for her to at least take a class and live there since we were paying for it anyway. It is all starting to fall into place. She has a part time job there and now with her class officially starting she is keeping very busy and having lots of fun while she is there. Her other room mates are all doing pretty much the same thing.
So I haven’t had much time for blogging because I am either working…it’s a busy time in the cheese caves…or I am driving back and forth to Chapel Hill getting our daughter moved in. Moving in is not just a one day activity. No it’s been happening for weeks! I took these picture of her her new bed. It’s a shame the landlord won’t let them paint the walls and really they aren’t supposed to hang things on the walls either. It’s looking a bit bland. So these photos are to help inspire me to try and come up with some ideas on what I can make to hang on her walls. I’ll be needing to get my hands on some 3M Wall Sticky Wall Hooks that are not supposed to damage the walls. I have never used these before. Has anybody else used them with any success???
Here is the desk I so loving worked on. Heaped with stuff. And this next photo is to remind me that the girl needs a dust ruffle in a bad way! I need to hurry and get that taken care of. Not attractive! :)
My next visit I’ll be sure to take some more photos of the rest of her place. It’s a work in progress but she and her friends LOVE it! Do you remember your first place?
