So now I can focus my attention on something else. You know how I had that theory that my house would be totally clean if only we didn't have horizontal surfaces? Well, this week I have a new focus. I'm going to walk around the walls in each room and pick up stuff that has just sort of parked there.
We have a corner in our bedroom that is stacked with books, notebooks, and papers. On the floor! Why? I'm going to go through those this week. I'm talking about the clutter that has been there for a long time and you don't even notice it anymore.
There's no telling what I may uncover!
Back when Carrie suggested our book club moms read The House That Cleans Itself, I did one of the assignments. The assignment was to walk around your house and take pictures. You were not supposed to straighten ANYTHING before you took the pics. Oh dear.
I'm finally feeling brave enough to show you a few of the better ones:
|Hey cool. I'm sitting in that chair RIGHT NOW! See the junk to the right? There's different junk now. But why? Why is it there?|
|This is known as crap corner. EVERYTHING gets put down on this part of the kitchen cabinet. Drives me crazy.|
|Oh the dining room floor. I sew there (not on the floor) and then quickly clean off the table for meals. Here is the result.|
Other than that, we're REAL close.
