Forgive me if this post comes across as a little brief and a bit incoherent. I just spent the last several days at the University of Dallas Ministry Conference and I am exhausted. In a good way.
You know how you work really hard on getting a room all nice and spiffy?
Then you turn around and see that space you previously paid no attention to and suddenly it sticks out like a sore thumb?
The top of the Princess's dresser is screaming at me.
It's so bad that I didn't even notice my reflection in the picture I was taking because it was too covered with stuff. You probably didn't notice it either until I went and pointed it out.
I really can't ignore it.
Most of that stuff was put there "temporarily" because it belonged somewhere else. Like all the toys on the right side that belong in the Peanut's room.
A bag of hangers.
And an "antique" television.
They just don't make 'em like they used to.
We put that in her room a few years ago with some kind of DVD player so the kids could watch a movie one night.
And it has sat there unused ever since.
Oh look. We can see the mirror now.
And in it a reflection of a nice clean room.
And the best part is I can now actually ask the Princess to keep her room clean. Before, I knew it was an impossible task. Too many toys and no place to put them. How could I possibly ask her to tackle a task I knew I couldn't even accomplish? Less stuff = easier cleaning = less work for me!
Funny how I thought that shelf just wasn't adequate to hold all her stuff. It functions just fine now!
It's been awhile since I have had such a good view of that floor. Still holding up!
