Sunday Snapshot

Ni Hao Y'all

It was time. It was, truthfully, waaaay past time.

Time to tame the wild beast that The Gang
calls "the storage room." Also known as the attic.
Or, to a certain two or three little Gang members,
known largely as a most convenient dumping ground...

Above our garage, behind the older boys' room
lies the roaring monster.

Well, really, the roaring was really only in my head.
But you know the saying:
When Momma ain't happy,
ain't nobody happy.

After a little insulating,
and a loooootta sorting. And sweeping.
And purging. And pleading.
Don't ask. I heard nothing.
I am immune to the pleading.
No matter how cute That Boss is!

Then Momma was happy. Ecstatic really.

The trunk and backseat of the van was filled to
overflowing with items for donation.
Two large garbage bags were carted to the dumpster.
And lots and lots of other items
were posted for sale on our local cr@igslist!

Tidy order has been restored to the kingdom.
The roaring monster has been subdued.

Stripped of his powers to clutter
and overwhelm,
the raging beast is no more.

The nasty monster of mess has been vanquished.

And for the hungry dragon tamers?
This sweet offering of thanks.

Eat, drink, and be merry. . .
For next weekend we attack the basement!

Come on! Join the fun
Give a little comment love,
get a little comment love.
I promise :)

Oh, I am envious. But, I am putting aside all the urges to go attack our storage room right now (whose pictures I'd be way too embarrassed to post)--if you read my Sunday Snapshot, you will know why. Gotta start sitting still a bit more.

Oh, can you come to my house and whip our "storage room" in the basement into shape? I'll make some cookies! LOL

I love your wall of wreaths. I never know where to store mine.

Kathy said...

Looks Great ! Don't you love an organized storage room ? It gives me the warm fuzzies !

Aus said...

Great Friday post and a super SS - don't want to think about the basement - but I'm good with the cookie part!

hugs - aus and co.

Joan said...

Great job cleaning up :)

Chris said...

Isn't it amazing how organization calms 'the beast'?

We have a few 'monsters' of our own to tackle!!!

The cookies look delicious...I think my crew would love that as their payment as well!

Good luck on the basement project!
