I love checking out Jen’s Tackle it Tuesdays, there’s just something about before and after pics, isn’t there? Sorry I don’t have any for you–just be thankful for your own digital camera, and picture me tackling my upstairs-slash-attic with every (unstuck) window in the house full open–blowing fresh air and the scent of baking Amish Friendship Bread in my oven…three loaves!
This morning saw me dragging a bit, coming down from last week being Spring Break, no doubt. But we girls got a lot done in addition to the routine!
Our upstairs is accessible through only a tiny, steep-staired passageway, hidden behind a door in my kitchen. There are two nice bedrooms up there…beautiful wood floors (can ya hear the echo?) and then a large attic-storage area. We only use the upstairs for storage and company. Well, the storage had kinda taken over to the point that my dear hubby pointed out mildly one day that we had a fire hazard upstairs! Yup…I’d gotten lax about sorting outgrown clothing, schoolwork, crafts, extra toys, um, fabric…books…garage sale stuff, Christmas boxes…just picture a complete mess.
It’s all gone now! Well, what’s left is organized and we made a substantial trip to the thrift store and the dump this afternoon. And my daughters have turned the glorious space up there into a playroom!
One more cute thing about today: my dh just walked in, and told me our girls had left a message written in sidewalk chalk on the barn floor. It said:
“Chores done. 3-26-07”
Made his day. Just as the mini-back rub he gave me just now made mine!
And we’re off to eat tacos… (yes, I know it’s only Monday, but twill be Tuesday soon enough!)
