The kids and I spent part of the day running around, finishing up some school shopping and doing some errands, and when we got home I was determined to get the suitcases off of the front porch.
When I opened the garage door, this is what greeted me:
Obviously, I've gotten into the habit of chucking things in there and slamming the door shut, with the "out of sight, out of mind" mentality.
So I thought that I'd straighten it up a bit. You know, just to make room for the suitcases.
Well, if I'm straightening up, I might as well hang up this pegboard stuff that I got from freecycle so that I can actually organize some of the tools and get them off of the dirt floor.
And in the end came out hot, sweaty, filthy, and smelly, but my garage is somewhat organized.
The kids weren't happy that I "forced" them to play outside while I was working on this, but they got even more filthy dirty than I did so I think they got over it. When we came in, the girls gave the boys baths while I made supper, and now they're eating and watching a movie. As soon I hit "post" on this, I am hightailing it to the shower myself. I stink.
