So, today is the first day of Spring Break for my kids…so what better way to spend it….cleaning their rooms! Aren’t I a mean mom!!??? We had such a productive day!! Spring cleaning..a bit late!! And River got lots of new stuffed animals!!
Closets were cleaned. Bird cages were cleaned. Beds were cleaned. Shelves were cleaned….and many more things….and things even got dusted!
River’s room still needs some work…but we are working on it….and I wanted to get it all out of the way…so we could have the rest of the week to relax! We filled lots of bags with trash and lots of bags to donate!!
Hope you had a great Monday!!
Well…the time finally came…..the time that you dread in every young girl’s life….Barbie time! We had been holding it off for a long time…but it finally arrived…River loves Barbie and wanted the Barbie Dream House in her room!
We spent about two hours the other day lugging the Barbie Dream House up from the basement….it was very dirty and dusty…so we had to put all the furniture in the tub…River was in charge of cleaning the furniture..and she did a great job. Then I got to break the house apart and put all those pieces in the tub and scrub them clean…….
After everything was re-assembled in River’s room……River arranged all the furniture just the way she wanted it and played with the Barbies for about two hours!! I guess Barbie isn’t so bad after all!
The sound of silence….that is what I hear! My two oldest children are back at school and the house seems so quiet! It is just me and River and my oh my….were we busy……
Oh my goodness, I am now officially FINISHED putting all the Christmas decorations away! I love getting them out…I really do….but once all the craziness is over..I just want it all away. I run around like a mad person trying to get it all done. My children are very eager to get it out..but not so eager to help put it away! Until next year…..
Well, I finally got around to cleaning out my woolie sweater closet. I should have taken a “before” photo..but I didn’t think of that until AFTER the cleanup! I filled two giant trash bags with sweater scraps! I hate throwing scraps away..I always think, maybe I can use them for something. But the scraps were taking over the closet. And I know that in another six months, the closet will be filled with more scraps! Also, please ignore the ebay postal boxes that I have used as separators! I need to actually make some separators out of wood!
While putting away the Christmas boxes (and there are MANY)…I am amazed at how anal retentive I am about things….this is just one example of the label on one of the boxes…I don’t know what is scarier….the strange sounding things or how detailed I am about it…
