bad blogger...


Having a hard time blogging and feeling very overwhelmed with the "move". I cannot believe the amount of STUFF we have accumulated in this house over the last 4 and a half years. It is ridiculous! People that have seen my house are probably like, what is she talking about...but trust me. It is the storage room. Oh, the storage room. Kay, the best way to explain this is, you know that episode on Friends where Chandler got into that closet of Monica's that was always locked and saw that it was totally jam-packed with junk? Well, that is my storage room. Haha! And it's not that I'm pack-rat (I'm more than happy to get rid of stuff) it's just that our storage room in this house is so huge that we just got into the habit of putting stuff in there and not actually dealing with it. So now we are. Graham and I spent all day Saturday sorting through everything there and it was awesome....but alot of work and still lots to do. It's a shame that we didn't have a bit more time, we would have made a killing at a garage sale...but what do ya do? Value Village got a whole truckload of stuff from us!! (and more to come, too!)

Here is the baby stuff that I am keeping:

Would you believe me if I told you I got rid of almost 3 garbage bags of baby stuff? I'm keeping all the special stuff...baby blankets from Grandma's and cute little outfits and sleepers...clothes for Gabby to still grow in to...I think the girls will love to go thru it all one day and see how tiny they were. So...my house is chaos right now, but it is great to finally be dealing with alot of stuff that has been put on the back-burner for too long. Kim was supposed to come over tonight to help me start on my scrapbook room but I'm just not ready. And Graham is out of town (again) so it's too much to deal with the girls at bed-time and try to pack. Oh, life. I can do this right?? I am telling myself that it is possible. Haha!! I already have a huge box of scrapbook supplies that I don't want and I have to figure out what to do with it...I'll keep you all posted on that.

For now, forgive me if I'm not around much....just imagine me in piles and piles of boxes!!!


P.S. You have one more week over at the Goodie Box to submit to this months challenge....I love all the Halloween stuff this month. So much fun!
