school room is clean!

Nov 1, 2010

So, I have been trying to get my home into some semblance of order after the great bedroom rearrangement project, right? Well, as I have said many times before, it is basically impossible for me to clean without rearranging. The school room has been full of the overflow from Keziah’s room and has been collecting clutter for weeks months. We have been having school-time upstairs for all of September and October because I could not bear to do it in the mess and chaos of the school room.

Today was the day I set aside for cleaning it and it is done! I needed to make the couch area smaller to make room for Richard’s weight bench and the before-mentioned mattresses, so I really did need to rearrange this time.

Both enormous bookshelves have new homes, the “closet” has been moved, the art table is in a new spot, there is a new spot for the project table, lots of stuff has been thrown away, books I don’t love have been removed, mattresses waiting for Mikelle to take them home are moved out of the way, and all my lovely, old-looking books are now upstairs in the bookshelves in the dining room.

I still need to do the rest of the basement, the clothing bins, my bedroom, and the piles of stuff in the hallway, but the school room is spotless! My back is aching and I the rest of me is super sore, but I am so glad this part of the decluttering/cleaning process is done.

Fisher is waiting for me to read to him, so I will get some pics up later tonight!
