Burst of Unexpected Energy

I got this strange burst of energy at like 5 pm last night and just started putting away the Christmas stuff that had been lying around (remember, I had also made curtains...what the heck got into me?).

Once I started, it only took about an hour to get everything packed away (now its sitting in the sun room awaiting my husband to carry it out to the storage building, but at least it's up off the floor!).

My husband smiled as soon as he walked through the door and said, "The house looks nice." I felt so bad for him having to look at that crap every day after a hard day at work. But it's done now, so yay me (us)! Here are some before and afters.


Before







So much stuff on this floor you couldn't even move around!






After
Ahhh, clean!





A clean floor...nice.


A cleared off table.


So there...that wasn't so bad.

Looks so pretty! I got my Christmas decorations down right after Christmas, glad I did, because I had to carry all the stuff down a hill in my backyard to the storage building, and it's alot colder now!Feels good to have it done! Now if only I could get your burst of energy going to get the house all clean!

Angie...seriously amazing! Seriously!!! I think that is what drives me sometimes too...knowing my husband has worked hard all day, and how much it must mean to him to come home to a clean house.

Gold star for you today, my friend!!!
