But I am up against a very formital foe as you can see from these photos. Mind you I did some cleaning before those nasty pictures. It is just my opinion that there should be areas to use to step across the room without injuring yourself. My son apparently follows a different philosopy.
There were places to step but you need to have really long legs. I don't.
I have found over the years that I want to start over each semester just like the kids. I miss that fresh start and that almost anything is possible feeling I used to get from the start of the new school year or semester. I still want to stock up on new pencils, flash cards and a clean set of white tennis shoes. As I have grown older I want a clean fresh start in my house too so instead of spring cleaning I always have fall cleaning. I clean out the closets, sort out books, restock stationary supplies and I clean and organize my children's rooms. Courtney is away in her own little 'surf shack' so she is most likely doing her own version of fall cleaning. And that brings me around to cleaning my son's room. Or as we have taken to calling it "the Cave".
The pictures just don't do the room justice. Just before this picture was taken I cleaned all the change off of my son's desk. I found almost 20$ in loose change covering the top of the desk. And he had a large jar just within reach for change on the shelf just above his desk.
My son loves airsoft guns and games and spends a lot of time chasing his friends around in military type games. If they could see his bedroom none of the armed forces would take him.
So I cleaned and tossed and organize throughout most of the day and I was kinda worried about what my son was going to say when he saw his room. I am not anywhere near done in there and it may take me another week but I thought he would notice the changes and he did. He came in to the kitchen and asked if I had been cleaning is his room. The tone was a bit sarcastic, and when I said yes I had been cleaning in his room he said thanks (very nicely) and went back to his room.
Now all I have to do is finish it.
Thanks for reading,
