Dean’s ABA Week

Again, this is a loaded ABA post, so I am just going to have a short intro. As you know, I am reorganizing Dean’s room and it got me thinking about my own room and closet. I want to take some of his elements and incorporate it into my own closet. I really like the “sweater” bins and I will be using them to hold all of my jeans. I currently share a closet with my dad and basically my room for him to store his stuff in. Once I buy a house, I will be super happy to have my own bedroom and a separate office if I’m that lucky. I will settle with an office/bedroom combo. I got a massive migraine this weekend, so I didn’t really get stuff in his room done. I did some Christmas shopping instead and I am really happy with my finds. I’ll be sharing them soon.
