It has gotten to the level of scary beyond all reason. For WEEKS (okay, okay.. months) I've been avoiding this mess, but I finally got a touch of spring cleaning fever today and decided to tackle the big messy craft (junk) room.
After an hour, I recruited the hubby for back up due to becoming quickly overwhelmed and on the verge of possible meltdown mode. We spent the ENTIRE day in there sorting, tossing, organizing, moving, rearranging, folding, ignoring the pleas from our hungry kids (not really, sheesh... some people have no sense of humor). It was just, in a word, EXHAUSTING.
BUT, we got it DONE. It is clean! You can see the floor! Things have PLACES and they are in them!
There is even room for more! Although... Tim has told me that if I so much as venture in the direction of the craft or school supply section he will remove my arms.... so... not much hope of that happening in the future.
Anyway, while we were sorting (digging) through the mess, I found a lot of really interesting stuff, like high school artwork from both me and Tim. I might post a blog about a few of the things we found with pictures tomorrow, but for now I'm going to go devour my dinner and then veg out on the couch for the rest of the night.... or maybe just go sit in my craft room and just look at it. *sigh*
