Yesterday I did something I was loathe to attempt: clean out my “toy and school garage.” Long time readers, or at least those who’ve been reading since September, will remember that when we moved into this new house, we lost the school room and play room that we had in our last rental. So, we converted the single car garage into a storage area.
My brother treated it for bugs prior to moving everything in, and I am pleased to report that except for a spider or two, there weren’t any creepy crawlies in there when I ventured in to establish order once and for all. I told you on Sunday I was going to attempt it and I actually did it! Yeah! I surprise even myself sometimes.
It feels so good. Now, there are 5 other closets that need to be put in order, but progress has been made. Let’s all have a cookie!
