Today is the 50th day that we have lived in our new house. That being said, I celebrated by dusting for the first time! Of course, I'm also insinuating that until today, the house was not unpacked enough to make dusting worth my while.
Would you like to see the mess turned progress? Join me on a hoarder's journey. From a five bedroom, 1800 square foot town home, to a two bedroom, under 1000 square foot apartment...
First, the entry way. This is the view from the front door. Try not to have a panic attack when you see the mess we were living in.
And this is the foyer from the other direction.
Next on the tour is our kitchen. Please notice the major fire hazard - yes, I know that a stove is not a good storage area!! (But seriously, where did I stash all that crap?)
Here's another shot of the kitchen.
And finally, the living room.
Over the next few days I'll show you some more pictures of our new pad, but I wanted to start with the spastic before pictures next to the so-much-tidier after pictures. It makes me feel better about myself.
I have to give some major credit to my sister, Wendi. She has a bum knee and is on the injured list from her tour as "Jenny the Music Teacher," with Sesame Street Live. Instead of moping around and recovering, she spent the last two days playing with my kid and cleaning my house. She is amazing and I was so blessed to have her here!! She's having surgery next week, and though I'm bummed that she can't work right now, I am so grateful to get to spend extra time with her, especially around the holidays!
We also had a good laugh over this interview- you should know that despite what the reporter recorded, we did, in fact, watch a TON of TV as kids. Also, we're not sure what Wendi said to make the reporter interpret it as "It's a Steve Jobs in the making..."
