Manic Monday

Today is Manic Monday. This is a day when you attack a cleaning project that you've been putting off for far too long. My Manic Monday project was my office, and I actually started it yesterday. You see, my Mom was coming here today so I could give her a ride to the airport. There is NO WAY I was gonna have my office looking like it has for the past 2 months with MY MOTHER here! Nope, because I don't need any lectures. :-@

Now, I'd love to say I stole these pictures off the "Clean Sweep". website, but I can't because that would be lying. No, instead this is a picture of my very own office. L-) I debated all day long weather or not to post this picture, cuz it gives away a lot of secrets. Like the one where everyone says, "You always seem so together!" and I just smile and nod, while in my head I see myself running to close my office door if I hear a knock at the door.

So I cleaned and cleaned. And cleaned some more, and moved some furniture around, and this is the finished project.

And now for the challenge. Come up with a "Manic Monday" for your house next week, and post a picture of the before/afters. Maybe you have a drawer you've been meaning to clean out, or a mountain of laundry you're behind on, or a garage that you can't get a car into? (I have one of those too.)

Tomorrow is Try it Tuesday. Try something you've never had/done/gone before. Maybe you need to step out of your comfort zone and order something different at Starbucks? Maybe you want to try rock climbing? Whatever it is, I want to hear about it!
