A Project...

Any of you who have been in our house in the last, oh year maybe?, will recognize this:

In fact, you've probably left our house snickering or gasping in disgust about it. It's the catchall - whatever we don't know what to do with- goes there. Whatever we use on a regular basis and don't want to totally put away, goes there. So finally, tonight, I attacked it. It took two hours and a lot of Ajax and coughing. And, of course, not everything is put away, but it's a start, right? The little things.... So here it is after all my hard work....
Now everything we need is there, but a bit more organized with all the junk thrown out. There was a lot of junk. And, I've found a place for Ethan's games and art supplies.
Other than that, it was kind of a relaxing day. We all got haircuts (except he-who-has-no-hair) because they were "on-sale" at Great Clips. How sad is that? I mean, how thrifty! The boys did it as a surprise while they were out and I thought it might just be a good idea for myself. Of course, for Brian this was a splurge, as I usually cut his hair. I guess he's getting tired of my work!
In other news- Lucas eats his hands constantly. I'm not talking every now and then. I'm talking all the time. It's gross because he then slimes us all. I'm sure a tooth will pop soon. Ethan's did about a week from now. 2 more days of break. Livin' it up!

Good work Katie! Isn't is funny how such a small space can take so much time to clean?
And I love Lucas' new nickname...
