Day 39 - Walk through Day 1 - upstairs

Just a walk through to find any remaining things hiding.  Hopefully, I'll find 10.  I have no doubt actually that I can.

My pile of things that I have been collecting to give away. 
Our bookshelves always need work.
 Now for the kids' rooms - before room clean-up time and after

Before - big boys' room

After - big boys' room

Before - girls' room
After - girls' room

Before - little boys' room

After - little boys' room

Things dont' look exactly like I would like them to look, but they improved it greatly.  Maybe tomorrow we'll work on making beds together.  I don't expect perfection from myself, so I should expect them to perform at my level.  It's all about helping them learn without working them too hard.  We don't want complacency or laziness.  We are all a work in progress, and I need to allow that for them.  Sometimes I will follow behind and make their bed, so they can see an example of a neat bed.  Mostly, I just let it go and work on it the next day.

Just in case you haven't noticed, tomorrow is the last day of our de-cluttering journey.   I can see that I still have so far to go, but I'll be taking a break from all the de-cluttering and continue to do little bits every day, but not whole rooms. :) 

I have some new things lined up that I am going to try.  We'll see if it works for our busy schedule.  I have lots of DIY projects.  I have always waited for hubby to tackle them and he is way too busy doing the job that he must complete by April next year and his full-time job, soooooo I am going to attempt some of the easier ones with the help of my boys who know how to use Dad's tools somewhat. 

If you'd like to join me, I plan to post the projects we're working on and we can do them together. 

It's all about being a helper to my husband and making our home a haven.

Making the most of today,
