I know it can’t last, of course, but for this moment, it feels pretty darn awesome!
So today’s challenge for myself was to get all the piles of stuff up and dealt with. Not just moved somewhere else, but actually dealt with. Here’s some before pics:
Pile O’Crap #1: Note to self: I need A Place for my bag, sometimes I hang it on the bannister, but that does look messy, and often I just leave it on the floor.
Laundry Baskets O’Crap:This is all the upstairs stuff that’s been migrating downstairs. All too often, I fill a basket and it sits for weeks. Like these have.
General Crap on the Furniture:
The Horror By the Powder Room: This has all been sitting for far too long - all stuff to go upstairs, plus a backpack to be hung up, and my son’s rain poncho.
The Invisible Bin O’Crap: I say invisible because it’s been sitting there for months. I hate it but just Could Not Deal. UNTIL TODAY!!
The view towards the front door:
And the whole living room (with furniture rearrange AGAIN):
The cup chairs:
And last, but not least: Oooooo yeah, baby!! The HORROR IS GONE!
I also swept, mopped, vacuumed the rug and all the furniture, shook all the crumbs out of the cup chair cushions, etc. I found a veritable treasure trove of lego guys in the Big Green Chair, my son was so happy!
And so tomorrow…I begin on the piles in the kitchen and on that bookshelf by the dining room! But for tonight, I’m going out for dinner with some friends and having a large glass of wine!!

*a mere 10 minutes later*
….Well I’ll be damned!
I was honestly trying to build myself up to that, just dreading that it was going to take foreverrrrr. 10 freaking minutes. Amazing =D
