we had a super lazy weekend last weekend. the kids wanted to go play in the kidzone at ikea on friday, but i hate going to ikea on any regular day, much less black friday. so instead, we stayed home, watched a movie, played jenga and ate a ton of food. saturday, we did more of the same. come sunday, we actually did go to ikea, but that was the extent of us getting out of the house. every once in a while, i give us license to be very lazy, and this weekend, we were...and i didn't feel guilty about it at all. until sunday evening. i started to feel really lazy and decided that i needed to deep clean at least part of the house. so i chose the bedrooms. unfortunately.
here's what i learned from deep cleaning all three of our rooms:
~ eva is a hoarder. seriously. she collects seashells, beads, old paper drawings, mint tins, shoe laces, pearls from broken necklaces, pretty rocks, and a lot more that i can't remember. if she thinks it's pretty, she saves it. she thinks that some day she will have the best and craftiest idea of what to do with said items. i threw most of it away, and she will probably never know. i saved some beads and seashells...maybe even a few stray pearls. everything else went in the garbage.
~ eva is sneaky and cleans her room by throwing everything under the bed. on the plus side, i found my winter boots that i have been searching for high and low. somehow they ended up in her room, and then of course, under her bed. also under the bed: colored pencils, more old paper drawings, a few candy wrappers from halloween, some doll clothes, and a lot of glitter. just random glitter.
~ henry has a lot of legos. we bought him a dresser just to store his toys, and one drawer is literally full of legos. and he also has one of those huge under-the-bed plastic bins that is also full of legos.
~ henry doesn't like to clean up all of his legos.
~ henry lost a lot of legos to the broom and garbage.
~ there was also a surprising amount of glitter under henry's bed, too. i'm starting to believe in the tooth fairy.
~ i have a lot of clothes. a lot. i got rid of almost two racks of clothing (nora and i are having a garage sale this weekend), and i still didn't make a dent in my closet.
~ see above, and replace "clothes" with shoes".
~ see above and replace "shoes" with "purses".
~ the glitter transcended to our room, too...which is odd because i lost all of my teeth as a child. maybe there is more than one fairy in our house. or maybe desi likes to have doggy glitter parties while we are at work. i wouldn't be surprised.
so our rooms are clean, like super clean. i even went through the kids' clothes and got rid of a ton of stuff. i am quite proud of myself and determined to make them keep them clean. i guess that means we have to keep our room clean, as well. we'll see how long that lasts...i mean, the five outfits i try on every morning before deciding on the right one don't always hang themselves back up.
