This is a first for me - I've never done a Tackle it Tuesday before. That doesn't mean I didn't need to! I finally have time to make some sense of my house again - working every morning and taking care of the grands in the afternoon has left me not only short of time, but very short of energy. I am constantly looking at what needs to be done, and feeling frustrated that I couldn't get to it.
So - now I'm retired. I have spent the last two weeks getting my little room in order. This room used to be Kev's bedroom, and when he flew from the nest for the last time (yes, Erma Bombeck was right - the revolving door is a fact of life), I made it my own.
But - when the grandkids came along, and I began caring for them, it also became their play room. Needless to say, it's a bit of a problem keeping it looking as I want it to.
Now for the before pictures! Kristen says she's never seen any part of my house look this bad. It's true. I just kept throwing stuff in here for the last month or two of working. The stuff I brought from my office landed here, too.
I got another bookcase to organize the phone, bills, library books, magazines that I hope to read someday soon, Bible, devotional books, diapers, wipes, etc. etc. etc.
