Before and After

     One evening, not very long ago Mr. Pepper asked me if we still have a certain book, and if we do he'd like to read it again.
     "I think it's in the storage room," I said quite carefree. Since we have hundreds and hundreds of books, I offered to go get it for him.
      I traipsed up the stairs quite happily and opened the door to the storage room. At that moment my carefree happiness flew right out the window.
      For longer than I care to admit when ever something needed to go to the storage room I sent the children to put it in. Likewise if I needed something I sent them to retrieve it, so I was not prepared for the nightmare that greeted me as I opened the door.

      The past five days the girls and I have spent every afternoon cleaning and organizing, and it's once again the pleasant place I had in mind. I will be checking it every so often because there will not be a repeat of that mess again!


  1. Great job on the organizing. Isn't it amazing how things can get away from you when they are out of sight?

  2. Wow! That is a huge difference. Good job!

  3. Wow, that looks much better. Like night and day!! Don't just love that content feeling when you finish a job out set out to do!! I know I do!!! God bless, and keep up the Great work!!


  4. Doesn't it feel fantastic to organize a mess! ... kind of therapeutic in a way. :)
