Where R the B4
Okay so some of you who come here to see pictures of the kids might not care about these pictures of empty rooms. I took them last night while the kids were in bed and everyone from my small group from church had left. (Nothing like having people over to get you motivated to clean) My good friends Stacy and Sarah both offered to have it at their house because of all of the stuff we had going on but I passed, so I could get this place straightened up. I should have taken before pictures because to all of you these pictures will mean really nothing. To Ted and I to see the house like this was so so so so great, ever since we had started back on the boys room addition our house has been so cluttered up. The main living room with the green couch had monitors on the couch, an window air conditioner, wood, big dog cage, two 27 in tvs, air compressor, saws, drills, so many tools and anything that had migrated into the additon room that needed to be put in the shed or garage area (Which was alot of stuff). The water got in that room after our little accident. The couch had to be pulled into the middle of the room. We had a narrow path leading through the room. (And I mean N A R R O W ) The office and playroom after the accident, had to have everything moved out of it (Including all of those Books but not the computer desk) to dry. I got the books and office somewhat put back together before we went camping. In the pictures of the medieval costumes you can see the empty wall behind the kids. On monday I slowly got started trying to put this place back together. I unpacked all of our camping gear and put it away along with doing laundry on Monday. I empytied a 122 qt plastic bin filled with paper junk and sorted it. (That took most of Tuesday) Wednesday night Ted took most of the heavy stuff out of the living room. On Thursday I skipped my usual shopping and stayed home and uncluttered all the little left overs (I should say BIG leftovers) The end result is the pictures I have posted minus a few drawers I stuffed to hide things in.
