Yesterday I got a bit accomplished! Jess came over to get her Christmas ornaments but we couldn't find a bunch of them. They must be in their own box that has got moved back and forth a few times with her moving but no one knows where it is. Hoping they show up soon.
So now I have even more crap in the living room.
I got the kitchen cleaned up and cleaned off the little shelf I have about the sink. I had a bunch of tea cups on there which have become clutter containers so I took them down (also trying to minimize how many things need to be cleaned/wiped down/dusted in my house). I also cleaned off the top of the refrigerator which is apparently another one of my husbands favorite spots to leave his check stubs. Yes he still gets checks for his paycheck and he gets paid every week. They are everywhere. I don't understand why he can't just put them in one place. He thinks he might need them for something some day I guess. I have a stack of them now to shred next time I go into work. I should just get a small shredder for at home.
Anyhow! Then I cleaned off a bookcase that has also just become a pile of stuff. It looks so much better now. I was thinking of getting rid of my paper back books here but I couldn't bring myself to do it. They were my favorites growing up. Maybe I'll read them one more time first ;)
Don't mind my ugly heater. It is still a jumbled mess but I pulled quite a bit off of it. Maybe some day the living room will have the built in cabinets I want and everything can be arranged cuter.
The bottom stuff is all toys for the nieces/nephews and now the baby when they come over. They'll all just have iPhones by the time they come over again at this rate.
