Cleaning out my garage
Doesn't this one wall of my garage look amazing? That's right, the great garage organization project began a few weeks ago when we had a lovely Sunday with sunny skies and relatively warm weather. It only took me 2 1/2 hours + 5 bags of garbage + 2 bags of giveaways + 1 stack of "store elsewhere" to make this organized wall and the main parking area look like it does now.
Of course, I haven't yet worked on the other two walls, and, let me tell you, they desperately need my attention. (Nope, I'm not showing them to you in all their horrific glory yet - maybe when I'm finished.) Perhaps we'll have some more lovely, spring weather in the coming weeks, so I will be able to tackle the rest of this project. I find that about 2-3 hours is all I'm willing to spend on a task like this at one time. Any more than that and I feel bitter and resentful and foul about it for days. Knowing myself as I do, then, I decided to approach this project in chunks - one wall at a time in this case. Yes, it'll take me longer to fully complete it, but at least I won't hate the entire world while I work on it. I'm a bit dramatic, I know.
What spring projects do you have going on around your house and yard right now? Do any of you have awful garages that need attention like mine does? C'mon now, confession is good for the soul. ;)
