I can’t begin to explain how embarrassing this is for me, but I’m going to do it anyway. Actually, you see the photo, so I’m sure you can imagine how embarrassing it is. This is part of our bedroom. It’s been in a bad way for a long time. I don’t know how long, I can’t remember that far back. I do know that the box was originally filled with stuff to get rid of the look of clutter for my son and his family’s visit several years ago, but I never did anything about the actual clutter. Now I am.
What is even more embarrassing is that I had actually put several things away before I remembered to take the photo. All of the clothes on the bed had been on that pile at the end of the bed. Now, they are all hung up or folded to be put away. I had also put away a large hat box. The quilts that are there have been de-furred and are waiting to be washed. I’ve found several quilting books, lots of quilting fabric, two complete quilt projects, three completed quilt tops that are ready for me to quilt and two completed quilts that I told the guild’s VP of Community Service I would bind years ago! (I had wondered what had happened to those quilts!) I’m only half way through the box and my sinuses are going crazy.
My goal is to find new places for everything in the big box and all the things around the box on the floor. I also want to clean out the wood chest at the end of the bed. I think it’s full of baseball cards or maybe canning supplies or even a combination of both. I want to start storing extra bed pillows in there. Then after I complete this particular part of the room, I’ll show you a new photo and pick out the next part to clean. Don’t know how long it will take me. I mean it didn’t get this way because I like to clean, you know what I mean? But I am trying to turn over a new leaf in my life. So, off of here and back to it. Wish me luck.
