I Could Really Go for a Beer

Now's when I curse that whole not being able to drink thing.  While Evan took Isaiah to see Cars 2 this afternoon, I took it upon myself to empty out Micah's closet and create an insane pile o' crap to be sorted through.  I had everything in there from poker chips to a breast pump, and old letter jacket to space heaters.  There was a LOT of stuff.  Anywho, we got the boys down to bed and headed downstairs to try to tackle our storage area to purge out some junk and sort the stuff that we wanted to keep so that it didn't look so much like a bomb had gone off in there.

I should mention that I put Micah to bed in his big boy bed for the first time tonight.  He lasted a couple of hours before he got out and asked to go back in the crib.  We'll try again tomorrow!

But back to the hard work.  Holy crap did we have a ton of stuff piled in that storage area.  I threw out a real interesting variety of stuff that was just taking up space: wedding invitations, old flip flops (yup), random enormous paper clips, a half burned candle, broken picture frames, and a box of parts for a crib we no longer have....among other things.  We also created a huge "To Be Donated" pile with everything from kitchen utencils and a wine rack to Playstation 2 games and napkins. 

Feeling slightly liberated by all this purging, we managed to shove just about everything back in there before we ran out of steam for the evening.  I zapped an email off to our realtor that we just might make our goal of having the house ready to go on the market by the end of the month after all and when would she like to come out and assess the place?

Between the flower planting, decluttering, scrubbing, sorting, tossing, packing, wiping, rearranging, and other such nonsense, I feel like I've just been chasing my tail when it comes to this house ever since I got serious about getting it ready to be shown to potential buyers.

I was really ready for a nice cold bottle of Spotted Cow when I finally plunked my butt on the couch tonight.

I had a bowl of Fruit Loops instead. And now I can barely keep my eyes open.  Nite nite.
