PictureLess Tackle-it

The Professor has our camera so I can't take pictures of the 8x10 photos I finally got hung. They look pretty good, too. It's nice to know that I don't have to leave pictures hanging where we put them when we first moved in. *L* There's a bit of freedom in that.

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


My Tackle-it is: THE FRONT ROOM.

This is the room that gets the biggest mess because of the babies. It's where we congregate as a family. It's where all the school work happens. It's, pretty much, where we live.

After the wee ones being sick for a few days, and us being busy in general, the front room looks like a disaster. I walked through it in the dark last night, surviving the obstacle course, and thought: If the emergency people had to come visit us they'd think we'd been vandalized.

So today. I tackle it. It will only last a few hours, a few days at the most. But it will make me feel better. And while I'm pondering cleaning the mess in the front room - I'm seriously pondering how I can make a space in the garage (that we don't park a car in anyway) for many of the kids toys. Where they can go out, get what the want and when their done, put it back. But that's a Tackle It for another day.

Happy tackling! But remember though, obstacle courses provide excercise for the family too;)

I clean our living room and then life happens and it's back to a disorganized mess. But at least for a few minutes or hours it's clean. Good luck on the tackle.

Happy tackle! I hope it went well.

That's an interesting idea about storing toys in the garage. Some shelving and tubs with lids...hmmm.
