Well for the last 2 days my daughter and I have been cleaning her room (well cleaning is not quite the term- more like deconstruction and reorganization We've thrown out 2 big trash bags of garbage. 1 bag is full of clothes to pass on to cousins, another big bag is toys to go to the downstairs play area and a bunch of piles to go to various other areas of the house. Oh, and I forgot to say my daughter is a candy pack rat- she had squirreled away so much candy I think it probably weighs 10 lbs.(not kidding about that one and some of it is years old-scary)
And yesterday our power was out from 2-7 pm with the outside temp at about 98 degrees it got to about 82 in the house. So needless to say it wasn't the most pleasant experience. But the final results are great. We will see how long she can keep it this way.
Now I start on my boys room tomorrow.
