We cleaned the basement. I no longer have the world's messiest basement. I can't tell you what a relief that is. I didn't take any before pictures because it would be too embarrassing to post. I did take some after shots and a shot of the trash we took out to the curb today. I'll just leave what the mess looked like to your imagination, however I will tell you that it did involve using the snow shovel and Chris had to take 5 Valium total to survive it. This was his first time in the basement in over a year. It stressed him out to even go down and see it. It was RRREEEEAAAAAALLLLLLYYYY bad. The kids are so happy! They have a place to play and toys again. There were toys down there that Cameron hasn't even seen before. It's been like Christmas for him! I have vowed to stay on top of it, to teach my kids to be more responsible and to never let it get even close to that again.
I really have the best husband in the world to endure the mess and then to help clean it. He is wonderful.
Some days I wave.
