spring cleaning…

So today we decided to tackle our Spring Cleaning to do list:

We tackled the closets-yep the hardest on our list… So we got up early had a good breakfast, assembled cleaning supplies, plaster (for those cracks in the walls- we live in a pre-WW I building- those closets are extremely high!), got large black garbage bags- and off we went.

Like an assembly line hubby on a ladder, me and one of the girls at the ready…

Can I say the contents of one closet alone filled the large foyer and the hallway! Dag we accummulate stuff!

But the rule was- you haven’t used in a season- it goes to the Flea Market (my mom has a booth at the local church where she sells every spring and summer) or the garbage!

When we were done with each closet- which took us about seven hours to sort, decide what stays what goes, break for lunch- we sat back satisfied at today’s accomplishments.

Things we found along the way:

The sets of baby clothes of each of the kids we had put aside for them. Sent my son a pic of his first sailor’s suit he wore at three months- he text back an LOL and said he had been destined for the Military before he knew he was actually alive!

Some souvenirs we had bought on our travels over the years that could now be mounted or stood up in the glass curios.

Supplies we had shoved in the closets sometime ago and in the daily rush completely forgot about.

Ten bags of clothes that we argued over, yet ended up in the bag after a comment “it doesn’t fit you anymore and you won’t lose the weight ever”; “who on God’s earth would wear such a thing now”; “when was the last time you even saw that, ten years ago”…

Hard choices- but truth be told they were just taking up space…

Tomorrow? The kitchen, and those drawers in every room, that’s what!
