Like a Hoarders Episode
We are back after our lovely weekend in Chicago and I have so much to share! Unfortunately, I have no time to blog today because I have an Arts Festival committee meeting at my house in 2 hours and my basement looks like something out of an episode of "Hoarders". I wouldn't care, but see that door in the background (behind the big down comforter thrown over the stacks of boxes?)...well, that's the door to my office where we meet.
I made a promise to John that I would clean out the basement storage area while he was in Peru. Needless-to-say, there was a lot of stuff in the storage room. Now the storage room is empty (and quite lovely I might add...), but the sitting area is so full I had to make paths so that Jack could get to his room and the bathroom.
I have to confess that I do watch Hoarders every now and then. It just sucks me in. I just marvel at how much stuff people accumulate--so much stuff that it ends up affecting the way they live. Poor souls. Then I dragged everything out of my storage room and discovered my own mess. Holy cow. Talk about a wake-up call! Time to make some trips to Goodwill.
And now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go do something about that mess before the ladies get here.*
Have a fabulous day!
*On second thought, I think I'll hold my meeting upstairs this time...
