What's up with us?

Hi everyone!  Here I am doing another weekend post.  During the week just doesn't seem to be working for my blogging at the moment.  Next week is my last week at my temp. job, so hopefully my blog and all my blog friends will be getting more of my attention.

I have done some organizing and rearranging around the house which is a super great thing! First off my son's room. He is a typical nine year old boy, which means messy. I have told others I think it is due to his artistic talents that he cannot focus on cleaning up his room. I shouldn't be so hard on him really. He does try and since we started the new chore chart it has gotten cleaner. Here are some pics of his domain before:

All the pics from above are of his closet.  I emptied everything out first.  I went through and put small things back where they belonged.  I took out the big box you see and put it in the garage.  It is full of school papers.  I plan on buying some sturdier boxes to hold all that paper and some mementos.  I kept the shoe organizer on the door and just threw out things he did not want or use anymore.  Some of the games stayed in the closet and others found a new place to stay.  Here are the after pics of what I did:

What a difference.  I had been meaning to do this for months and finally did it this weekend.    Some things found a new home here that were once on his bookshelf like the books and lego boxes.  There are two large lego boxes on the floor too.  So. many. legos. 

My next posting will be the bookshelf and the rearranging of his room.  Have a great day tomorrow!

  1. Wow you really did a great job honey. I love how this turned out. No wonder Christi wants you to come organize my house. Hopefully one day that will happen.
    You need to do a blogazine post on my site so all my friends can find your site. I know they would love finding you.
    Have a wonderful week.

    1. Thanks! I would love to do a post! Just let me know when.

  3. Wow, that is a big project but I bet it feels great to have it done! My girls' closet is always a disaster zone!

    1. It does feel great. And I know it feels good to my son that he can find everything now.
