Spring Cleaning..

Yes, I know. You don't have to point it out to me. Spring is over and we're already a day or two into Summer. I also know that it's June and pretty sure that all the Christmas decor should have been packed away months ago. What can I say? I like to think things out a bit and have a plan before I just jump willy-nilly into something as serious as Spring cleaning. Of course, I could be really honest and admit that the thought of moving things out and really cleaning was enough for me to get out my "Queen of Procrastination" crown and wear it proudly from the cluttered end of the sofa where I had been reigning lately.

I mean really cleaning deep is such a huge job. And, as it turns out, you can't do it all in one weekend. Or should I say I can't do it all in one weekend. I kept looking at the big picture (which I know better than to do) and thinking "I'll never get this done". I finally had to step back, decide on one area and block out the rest. This weekend I attacked the living room. Can I just say....gross.

I can't remember the last time I moved the furniture and you could tell. I'm surprised the sofa even sat level on the floor with all the dust bunnies and lost magazines that I found under it. When I moved Ken's chair it looked like a family of chipmunks had been living there with all the crumbs.I felt kind of bad when I swept that mess up. Hope some poor little animal doesn't starve to death now.

Since Ken was working outside and couldn't have a fit about it, I even moved the furniture around. Last summer I traded for the most awesome chaise. Problem was the only place it would fit was in an awkward corner and I never enjoyed it much. Took care of that situation. Moved Ken away from the window and claimed the area for myself. (Don't feel bad for him. The only view he really cares about is the TV and he's got a good view of that!)

As much as I hated to have to dig in and clean up, I have to admit it feels really good. And there was a reward at the end of the day.....

...a few of my favorite things out on the trunk and a beautiful spot to nap on a Sunday afternoon. Now to just stay out of that chair long enough to get the rest of the Spring/Summer cleaning done!
