No, we did not find any dead animals or grossness of that nature (!) but wow. The problem was not totally hers. A few months ago, when we moved the girls to their own rooms we just sort of said, "where do you want the furniture?" and called it a day. We never really set up PLACES for everything. And she needs that.
So me and my trusty label maker worked overtime and found a spot for each and every category of items. But habits take a long time to cultivate and so mama has to stay on her hard now for the next few
Little Bit, who LOVES order and is really naturally pretty good at it, wanted her room to be better too. So I had 2 rooms going on for awhile there. It was really coming down to the wire on Wednesday as we were
1. leaving to go out of town Thursday morning.
2. having people over for Bible study that evening.
So...S grabbed some trash bags and stuffed the remaining pile in there and called it a day. Now, we can sort through the bags at our leisure. I doubt much of it will come back out!
For the record, I'm glad that is done and I don't want to do it again. I mean, I KNOW we will have to spring clean sometimes, but mercy.
Next up? Our room. Ug. But the homeschool room, dining room, both girls' rooms, and living room are awesome.
AAAAAAHHHHHH. That's me breathing a sigh of clean-house relief.
And we did enjoy our weekend at my parent's country place. Now it's good to be home.
