Of course, when it comes to the basement, I have trouble taking my own advice. I have been procrastinating. It is very easy to ignore something when it's not in your face every day.
However, I now have major motivation to declutter and clean the basement, thanks to my son. He called the basement his "man cave". Say what!! He's 12! It's not a man cave! It's a family movie room and a craft room, and it's up to me to make sure it stays that way- for a few more years at least! My son and his guy friends can hang out in the basement whenever they want, but I do want it to be a space where we all feel comfortable. They don't mind the mess at all, but I do.
I'll show you a quick peek of what lies ahead of (or, in this case, beneath) me. You have to promise though to look at this picture for a maximum of 2 seconds- no studying the mess! Okay?
|This is only one corner of clutter. There are others.|
I'll be underground for a few days. Let the phone ring a couple of extra times when you call me this week- it's going to take me some time to actually find the phone before I can answer it!
