10.23.11: Kenpo X – COMPLETED
10.22.11: 1-Mile Run – COMPLETED
This entry has been sitting in queue for quite some time and first was supposed to make its debut on Saturday. Well, then I pushed it to yesterday, but yeah, something is up with the WordPress app on my iPad, hence, no entries this weekend. I’ll have today’s entry up and running in a few (well, hoping that Lili doesn’t wake up for the next feeding, which may be any minute now).
On my days off last week, I decided to tackle a house project that had been on my mind for months. Every closet in the house is a D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R. I wish I took more before pictures, but I didn’t. Here’s the only before picture I had taken.
Here’s the story: My closet used to be in my workout room until we converted that room into the man-cave. When we moved things around, we never transferred my closet into his. I don’t know why I never had the Master bedroom closet. It’s much bigger than the other bedroom’s closets. Actually, I lie. I remember why we never transferred the clothes over from room to another; I was 9-months pregnant and could only handle small projects at a time.
A few after pictures.
And a shoe rack for the final touches. I really wish I had a before picture of how my shoes looked before.
I wish I took a “before” picture of Lili’s closet. Unfortunately, Pedro was moving things out that he was storing in there while I was finishing up my closet. So all I have are the “after” shots.
I also finished up the linen closet, the dressers for both our bedroom and Lili’s and Pedro’s closet. We had FIVE big bags of clothes to donate to Good Will.
Pedro was using these metal pieces as his shoe rack and he decided he hated them. So I broke them down and made it into a small bookshelf to put it near my working station. This is where I blog, Facebook, email, Livestrong, etc. It’s nothing special — but I was glad to have a place to put all my running magazines/books in. I do need to go through a bunch of papers sometime this weekend and weed things out.
I still need to go through the kitchen pantry, cabinets, filing cabinet and living room closet. It’s a work-in-progress. But, I’m determined to keep things neat and in order. Seriously, I flipped out on Pedro the other day over the linen closet. He took a towel from the middle rather than from the top. WHO DOES THAT?!? I’m becoming the man from Sleeping With the Enemy.
Are your closets a mess? I know some people that keep their houses so clean on the outside, but hide everything in closets among other areas. I don’t ever want to have a messy closet again!
