What an awesome day!

We had so much fun today, both Duhdee and I thanked Monkey for such a great day as we wished him good night.  What did we do?  We cleaned the basement.  Seriously.

We spent 5 hours in the basement sorting through toys, clothes, books and random crap.  We trashed tons of stuff and we have about twice as much set aside to donate.  It’s astounding how much was down there.  Even Grampy got into the spirit.  He was so impressed with how much we got done that he gave us the go ahead to clean out his stuff as well.  Monkey enjoyed playing with some of the old toys but mostly he just enjoyed running around enjoying all the new SPACE.

We were going to spend tomorrow morning doing runs to Goodwill but they don’t open early enough for us to do all of that before the plumber is due to arrive.  Fortunately, I’ve taken Tuesday off so we can do it then instead.

Who would have thought we’d have such an awesome day…cleaning?!

    Thanks, it took a while to get motivated. We’ve been here for 6 years and we’ve been accumulating stuff the whole time. The baby/toddler clothes was fully half of it…it was hard to let go of but it needed to be done. It’s amazing how good it feels to have it done!

    This is fantastic. 6 Years is not as bad as 25+ years like us. And for Grampy to ok cleaning out some of his stuff — just simply amazing.

    Have fun. Let me know what happens with the plumber and the cellar.
