The Blue Room
So, this is going to be embarrassing. You know that closet or drawer you have where you just kind of shove things and you ignore it until the drawer jams from having one menu too many shoved in the back. Well, it’s confession time. I have a whole room like that. And this week if you don’t see me much on twitter it is because I am organizing it, cleaning it, if I get it done maybe even some free sprucing of it. It is awful. Don’t believe me? I can’t believe I am putting this on the internet, but here we go:
So much crap. See the little bookcase by the window – half of it is filled with VHS tapes. V. H. S. There are bins of diapers, blankets, abandoned diaper bag and laundry.
I’m not sure which is worse, the falling down wall decal or the fact that those shipping boxes are from christmas.
There is also stuffed shoved behind the TV. Including a magic 8 ball. I asked it if I could get this room clean in a week; it answered, try again later. Not a good sign.
Surprisingly, the closet is the least of my worries. Maybe because I couldn’t get to it to shove things in to it.
So. You’ve seen the horror. What is the plan? Well, today I got a bunch of the trash out. The wall decal is coming down, the bags of books need to find a home… I would like to re-frame the print over the TV, maybe clear out the bulk of the movie discs (and tapes). I have no idea what to about toys that don’t fit in bins. We have two buckets of blocks, a car garage, two bigger trucks. They seem to be too big for shelves. How do you store your toys? I’d love to hear. I hope to have some after pictures on Monday. Woot! Wish me luck.
