Throw your things away!

I was a busy little bee today. In fact, I was so productive I feel a need to report on it. After leaving the children at school, I psyched myself up to finish the last of the three overwhelming and scary-but-must-be-done projects before yard saleing all our stuff and moving across the country. I sorted and cleaned the basement months ago, the attic was organized two weeks ago, and now that it's warm and the snow is gone, it's time to take on the shed. I usually don't get so ultra organized before big events like this. The last time we moved I was 8 months pregnant and we were taken by surprise by our moving date. I went to Albany to paint the new house and Tim and the in-laws packed up our very unorganized, untidy house. After opening box upon box of random things boxed with other unrelated random things i swore i would never bring an irrelevant item with me to a new house again (Tim instead swore that he would never move again). Anywho... I had all day to clean the shed, the kids were being picked up and given dinner to by a friend. I started at about 9:30. It was all neat and tidy by 10:30. I have a huge pile for our future yard sale and about 7 bags of garbage that can't really be used by anyone. So then i seasoned all the wood lawn furniture (8 whole pieces!) and then i painted the rocking bench red. Not only did i paint it but handy little me fixed it. I also painted a little table that goes outside red too. The bench is very much my favorite thing I did all day.
