A Clean Table

At last, at last! And mind you, this one took several days. Before...

  • diaper bag
  • stacking blocks
  • drywall screws
  • shelf board
  • circular saw (have I mentioned before that Matt has a habit of doing woodworking in the living room, using those two red chairs there as sawhorses?)
  • flashlight
  • dirty bowl
  • knit cap (temperature is in the 70s now)
  • seed packets
  • mail
  • big purple ball
  • Ziploc bags of Easter eggs
  • two shaggy rugs bought for the girls' playroom we're going to build in the basement
  • ornament hangers (from my last craft fair, not Christmas)
  • pants

And, um, that's just the top layer. Notice, again, that hardly any of this stuff is actually, you know, MINE. But I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned and Matt helped me clean and now we have: Below the table of course, is an empty honey container and a sock and a library book and a sandal. We've eaten at the table now a couple of times, but that was yesterday, and tonight before bed I have to go back and clean the whole thing off again, because today is a new day, and a new day brings new stuff to bring into the house and pile on the table.
