Me vs. Clutter Update No. 2

As predicted we had a snow day today.  We got about 3-4 inches of snow and a nice layer of ice on top which creates that "Look Ma, I'm walking on the snow and not falling in illusion."

Seeing as all three of my children were home with me all day, and we spent about 2 1/2 hours sledding.  I'm still pretty impressed with all that I got accomplished.

My son's room is clean, organized and has freshly scrubbed carpets.  I went through his toybox, cleaned off his bookshelf and got rid of the "baby" books and I cleaned out is dresser.  Don't tell anyone but he still had A LOT of 3 toddler pants in his drawers and he turned 5 in October. 

It's about time I get rid of the floods he's been wearin' to school.  LOL

Here is the view from the door.  There is the toy box and the lid actually closes!
Here's the rocking chair I really need to relocate.  It's a hand me down from my MIL and I don't want to get rid of it.  I'd like to pass it down to my kids, but right now I don't know what to do with it.

Lastly, here is his bed with a great view of his "art" closeline.  He's quite proud of it.
Tomorrow's project:  I'm going to tackle the utter disorganization that is known as my craft room.  This may take more than one day.  Where did I put that bottle of wine???

That clothesline is a great idea! Gonna have to steal fridge door is groaning at the moment from the weight of the "art" held up by magnets!hehe I KNOW you don't want to see my boys is bad...very, very bad.*lets all observe a moment of silence..* One of these days I will get motivated enough to do what you did. Although, it is practically impossible to keep my 5yr old out of high-waters! I swear you can literally "watch" him grow taller! (must be the Miracle Gro I put in his Kool-Aid, hehe) I am so very proud of you for what you accomplished today **wipes a tear**
p.s. word for today is "cesseinc"... sounds like the name of a company that digs cess pools...Cess, Inc. HA!
