Take a Picture, It'll last longer 2.0

 
 
 

So I spent ALL DAY yesterday gutting the girl's room. H called about 3:30 and I was in my second round of complete dispair, ankle deep in Polly-Pockets, coloring books, jewelry, doll clothes and the other curious bits that little girls amass...I recall unpacking a bag with a shirt, pair of jeans, one sock, a toy car and a plastic cucumber. I had a pretty big headache! But with some new curtains, another shelf for the Ryerse habit of collecting too many books, and a funky light-shade treatment, it is looking pretty cute in there. And oh yeah, and I took out four garbage bags of stuff. Two to trash an two to garage sale.


Today I am sitting on a pile of square dancing dresses that I need to list and several boxes to ship. The kids have been outside and they've only interrupted me 7 times while I wrote this post. You've heard of Chinese Water torture? This is Mom's Snow Torture. If only the dryer guy had fixed the dryer, they wouldn't have to wear socks on their hands...

The room looks fantastic! I'm glad you didn't give in to pink-despair.... it was touch and go there for a while.

Wow! Not only does that look terrific but now, when they say "it IS clean" you can show them how it's supposed to look!

I love the light thingy.

I love the way you decorate, the bedroom looks adorable. I love to clean out, organize and get rid-of! Such a great feeling.

My mom's torture is just falling asleep for a catnap and then being awakened by crying. Way to go though...I have been in cleaning and organizing mode too...the pile of garage sale stuff keeps growing.
