Announcing – the Basement Project
Just because I don’t have enough projects going on, I’m going to start a new one. Actually this isn’t a new project. It’s one I’ve been trying to get going for at least five years. Maybe by publicly naming and shaming myself I will actually get it done.
As you can see, my husband, the Man with the Gifted Hands, made a very nice playroom for the kids in the basement. Also, my children are blessed with lots and lots of STUFF, and not so much of a propensity to put it away neatly, or even at all. Whenever it becomes an actual fire hazard down there, we go down and move things around a bit. I’ve even been able to throw things out now and then (shhh!). But I soon run out of steam and hide in Facebook instead of pushing through.
This time, however, I am determined to master the Chaos Monster down there. I am planning to spend no more than 15 minutes at a time, following the FlyLady principles. I will document my (miniscule) progress as I go along. While I don’t expect too many people to be interested in the progress of my messy basement, I do hope that the internal discipline of getting it up there will keep me from abandoning it yet again.
What is the messy basement project in your life?
