A Productive Day

We got so much done around our house today. Everyone was feeling better (R and A were sick and I hurt my neck/back) and we were taking down Christmas decorations, so we decided it was time for a "winter" cleaning of our house. Jim tackled his office and I did the storage room and closets and finished up Ryan's room. I cannot believe the amount of stuff we got rid of. The back of my van is full and I have more items that did not fit. I will need to make two trips to Goodwill and Salvation Army. The playroom is not finished, but it is coming along. I have already taken 2 boxes of toys out of there. What in the world!?! I love having everything all neat and organized. Jenny C. would be so proud! 
**What did you do today?**

Yay for you! That is a lot of organizing. We took the tree down early - Christmas night - and I did some cleaning out then too.
Today we just had fun.

The chairs may have looked good in the pic but they were beat up and gross.

Oh Yeah! I feel 20 pounds lighter just looking at the back of your van.

I did the same thing the week before our trip. So much I had on my list to do but one day I couldn't take it anymore and I purged the upstairs.

A great way to start the New Year!

Isn't dejunking the BEST feeling? I don't know why I can hardly motivate myself to do it though? Probably because it's a ton of work!! Good for you guys!!!!
