Thought I would share before and after shots periodically of decorating or cleaning projects. Reality is that our house is close to 1700sq ft. Hypothetically if 12 people left out 5 things each hour you could easily have over 600 things out of place by the end of the day. SIGH Here is a typical cycle of cleaning in our house:
This is the before picture of our living room full of sick kids and items that have accumulated on the floor etc
And here it is after an hour or so of sorting.
I'm not crazy about the toys sitting behind the couch in full view as people enter the house. Any ideas on storing toys in a way that is accessible to the toddlers and still orderly looking? Funny question, as this is a new blog that no one reads :)
And most shocking of all...this is less than 24 hours later. UGH! Now in fairness, Mitchell has been working on laundry and that activity always seems to breed more chaos in the room.
A portion of Mt Neverest (aka laundry) has been conquered for the day.... this is our laundry folding couch.
Now if I get really brave I will give you a sneak peek into our laundry area/clothes room. But I don't think any of us are quite ready for that yet.
