Abby and Shelby~Feb '09

Well~I cleaned my daughters room yesterday and let me just say~THANK THE LORD IT'S OVER!!!

Honestly, I could not imagine going through Christmas and getting MORE stuff to put in that room. It was so cluttered and messy that by the time I put most of it on the rug you couldn't walk in there.

I hate Polly Pocket shoes and Puppy in My Pocket stuff. It was everywhere.

Now this wasn't all the girls fault. When I tell them to go clean their room I don't actually go in and inspect it ~~I need too!! The junk that came out from under their beds was terrible.

Candy wrappers from Halloween candy they got without my knowledge, cups from drinks that shouldn't be in there, coloring pages Oh my the coloring pages, VBS crafts, beads from necklaces, and more missing socks than I care to admit.

Oh and I sustained an injury that almost made me cuss out loud (I think I did say one in my mind and I repented for it already~so don't send hate e-mail:) I was working steadily on the parameter of the room~yes, I clean with a plan~ when I stepped on a card of about 8 pairs of earrings. Read that again folks~8 PAIRS OF EARRINGS and the BACKS WENT INTO MY FOOT!!!

Oh the pain! Oh the stars! I just about fainted. I felt like I was going to throw up. It was enough to make me want to give up and go watch the Cosby Show. But I didn't. I persevered and now it is done and I am so glad I did it.

Hopefully the girls won't report me for threating bodily injury if it doesn't stay clean til Christmas.

You wouldn't dare try to clean my room next time you are here. No telling what you might find under that bed. No food or candy wrappers though, dont eat in there.
