In my defense I was out of town for a few weeks while my hubby was alone with the kids, I’ve been nonstop sick with the virus from hell for the past month, and I’m grieving. But seriously, who am I kidding? My house looks like this on more days than I care to admit. Please tell me I’m not alone here.
Let’s just take a looksy at what is currently going on in my first level. I don’t dare take you upstairs right now. It’s near condemnable.
We will start our tour in the kitchen. I know, I know… I swear I will get to painting this stupid thing soon.
Okay, that was ewy. Let’s see how the rest of the level is fairing. Yikes. This is the joy of an open floor plan. You are greeted by your complete failure to manage your house all in one dose.
Maybe if we open a closet, we’ll get some relief from the mess. Yes! I could always retreat to my cute craft closet to escape. GASP! How does this happen? I can’t blame the kids or the dogs for this. Nope. This is all me here.
And all those cute scrapbook papers. You knew it would end this way. So sad. I can’t look.
Wow, so here is where we keep the vacuum. Let’s see what we can accomplish with just straightening up and vacuuming.
Better After: Mind you, this pic will be serving as it’s own before pretty soon! Ah, so much better!
*Deep sigh.* My mind feels less cluttered just looking at the after pictures. Except I didn’t put the vacuum away because I wanted to tackle that darn closet…so there is the ugly vacuum cord haunting my after pic!
And the closet?
Okay, this last one is a lie. My closet still looks awful and will need more intervention to return to its pretty state. A girl can only do so much in one morning.
And what you’ve really been waiting for….the winner of the Lisa Leonard giveaway! And just so you know, I pray over giveaways before picking a winner. Might sound silly to you, but I believe in divine intervention.
So God and Random.org have chosen:
I love her “mama” necklace! I covet that necklace!
Well Sarah, I guess the “mama” necklace was meant to be yours! Congratulations! Contact me and I’ll put you in touch with Lisa. Thanks again to all who entered and thanks to Lisa for such an amazingly generous giveaway!
Stay tuned peeps, because I have another amazing giveaway coming up in a few weeks. Here’s a hint: It says tick tock.
