Update: Mess and more mess

Well, the spring cleaning started off with a bang....and then 5.5 hours later, with a tired back, three cleaned out closets and half a trash can of broken toys from the boys' room, I decided to rest for the day. I still have the master closet to finish, which is where Phill found me buried yesterday. (Truthfully, I wasn't buried...but when he did find me, he said cheerily, "You found the floor!") As far as cleanliness itself, the house is pretty awful right now. And I'm not exaggerating. To prove my point, I'm going to post a picture of what it looks like at this moment. And then at the end of the day, I will post some more. Warning: These are very real pictures. This is my real house, the one you don't see when I have a day's warning before you come over. And this is the thing that happens when so many things don't have a designated place....which is why I'm in deep organizational mode right now. Somehow, this mess you're about to see only takes about ten minutes to create when you have three sets of little hands more than willing to "help"....onward I move into cleaner territories. Meanwhile, here's the current wilderness:Sorry the pictures are dark. I think subconsciously my right finger refused to move the dial to the left and allow for more light. Why make it easier to see my mess? :)

I feel your pain. However, I'm not feeling brave enough to share my mess. :) Maybe I'll take before pictures and post them once I have after pictures. :)

I'm pretty sure my house looks the same as yours. I've really let it go this week. I can't blame it on my cold & DayQuil right?

Cody's Mom use to always say "it's not messy, it's kid clutter" some how it always made me feel better.
Can I just say that I really like your bed, I know it has nothing to do with your post but I do like it!

OOH, you're way to hard on yourself. As I was reading your post, before I scrolled through the pictures, I was expecting much worse!
