Exhausted

I was initially scheduled to work this weekend, but one of my partners needed to switch, so I ended up with the weekend off. So did I have a nice relaxing weekend? Heck no! Saturday one of my friends came over (who thinks it's FUN to organize things), and yet another friend and her kids came over on Sunday. We spent the majority of the weekend de-junking the back porch. I didn't think to take a "before" picture, but take my work for it...it was an utter disaster. A few years ago, I had put our old table out there, with hopes of it being a craft area. Well, it pretty much became a junk table. So 12 bags of junk later, it looks like this...
We organized some of the cupboards as well.



It was appalling how much stuff we had. Nothing important. Well, except Catie's immunization record that had been lost for months. Food that had been long expired (2003 even). Tons of old plastic grocery bags. Old bottles and paper that never made it to recycling. For all my thoughts that we've been scaling down, it was more than apparent than ever that we have a long way to go. Nowhere near where I'd like to be. I have this desire to get rid of almost everything and start over with the bare minimum. But we just need to be diligent on keeping thing clean and getting rid of things we don't use or need.
Next up...the kitchen...

Looks great! It always feels so good to have things organized... I just hate getting to that point!

Rock on! Thanks for inspiring me just in time for the weekend. I've been in my new house for 4 months and I already need to dejunk my back mudroom.
