Truthfully, this is really just phase one, but you have to celebrate small victories, right? For me, it’s a major accomplishment to be able to easily walk all the way back to where my sewing machine is without having to step over stuff and squeeze around obstacles! It’s such a joy to see that 8 foot stretch of white table top! Sorry, there’s no “before” picture of that because I literally could not stand in the same spot before I started cleaning.
My daughter, Bethany, even vacuumed for me. When was the last time it was vaccumed? I can’t remember.
Phase Two will have to involve opening drawers and cabinets and thinning out stuff. I’ll need to go through the bookcases and also organize the boxes above the cabinets. I have an idea for a way to organize my thread, but it will require enlisting my sweet son-in-law to use his power tools. (Are you listening, Eric?)
But I’m thrilled with the progress that has been made and I’m satisfied to stop for the day.
