|A "Before" shot - Hubby was kind enough to dig the entire|
garden by hand. (The smile is sarcastic.)
Then, I got the bright idea to clean out the basement. I was serious this time! Over the years, I've cleaned the basement many times. It's a yucky, nasty basement but I've always made it bearable. That included stuffing things on shelves and scooting boxes full of junk to the corners of the room. Son #2 has his Lego Land down there. I've always felt guilty that he has to play in those horrid conditions. Lately, my basement has looked like it almost fit into an episode of Hoarders!
I decided that the boys and I would tackle it together. They weren't as gung-ho as I. Then I remembered that Son #1 had basketball camp all week. I couldn't let this go another week. If I didn't jump in while I was inspired, I wouldn't ever do it. Basketball camp started at 1:00 so the boys and I worked each day from after breakfast until lunchtime. We filled the side of our house with so many bags of trash; I can't imagine what the neighbors thought.
I vacuumed up cobwebs, scrubbed walls, swept, and organized like no one's business! I am so happy to say it's a place I don't mind walking through now. Laundry is going to be less of a horrid chore now. In the meantime, the rest of the house is hit. I now have to clean up from the results of my cleaning project...which is another one of the many ways that life isn't fair. Right?
What crazy things has your "Lazy" Summer included so far?
