I'll be honest. Today wasn't what I anticipated. The master bedroom in our house is a catchall for anything and everything. Throughout this Spring Cleaning Party, our bedroom has become the storage room for all the seasonal clothes boxes, all the items collected to Sell/Give, a steadily growing pile of laundry and lots and lots of clutter.
I would have loved a clean, peaceful sanctuary at the end of the day! However, I had to settle for a fraction of that. Everything I did accomplish was a step towards my goal.
When I continue with the master bedroom, I will be much further ahead than I was before today's clean-up!
I must be reminded of an Old Chinese Proverb that says,
“It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.”
7 boxes of Winter clothing, boots and accessories plus a hamper of baby things are waiting in the hallway for my husband to put them in the attic storage! Whew!
Here are my sick, cranky babies towards the end of my bedroom cleaning. They had just about enough when I snapped this shot.
Time to nestle down under those fresh, clean sheets and dry those baby tears. See you tomorrow for my last day of Spring Cleaning!
