Creation within a newlywed’s apartment – Step 1 AGAIN

Sunday! A time for rest and reflection. Right?

I hope I’m not the only one like this but rest and reflection absolutely cannot come until I’ve done something productive. Unfortunately today’s productivity comes as a repeat {sort of} of a previous post. As you can imagine, I am not pleased with that.

When my family and friends were in town for our reunion, we dragged the smoker out of the closet we had previously stuffed it into and grilled up a brisket and wings and jalapeno poppers. It’s been two weeks and the smoker has been shoved in my office with all the boxes that were packed in with it laying all over the floor making the room completely unusable for me. Do you see my poor, lonely little sewing machine in the background there behind all those boxes? Yep, I haven’t sewed a stitch in over 3 weeks! But my office was not unusable for Hubby who took advantage of my refusal to enter that room by eating in there while working online. I chose to take the picture before cleaning up his wrappers and boxes so that while I’m working at making our home its best, you can see it at its worst.

There is still some cleaning up to do but I wanted to share with you our closet before and after.

If you compare the final product of the closet in the last post to the final product of the closet in this one, I think you’ll notice a huge improvement!

I hope everyone’s having a wonderful Sunday and we’ll see you tomorrow for Museum Monday!

    Oh boy do I understand! I spend the afternoon/evening today sorting out kids clothes (because it had been over 6 months since I last did it!) and now my back is sore and I still have more work to do on toys! It’s so nice to see everything cleaned up… now I need to work on keeping it that way! =)

    I totally understand! I am so glad to not have to deal with mess-in-minutes anymore from my ex-hubby, I can’t even tell you how grateful I am for that. But, I did find FLYLady.net It is an amazing site that helps you get organized and into good cleaning habits in just a few minutes per day. You should check it out…It puts a smile on my face! 🙂
