Humbling as this picture is, it must be shown. Otherwise you could not appreciate the completed task I have just done.
And in some ways I just think it deserves an award or something. I mean it really takes talent to get this much junk into one drawer.
This is my night stand: BEFORE
And here are the contents:
Mexican Train Domino game instructions (you never know when you may want to play dominos in bed)
6 bottles of lotion
4 spiral notebooks
4 coasters and coaster holder handmade by the kids
a cosmetic bag
14 cough drop wrappers (gee, maybe I should set a trash can next to the bed?)
2 thank you cards
3 cough drops un-eaten
2 finger nail clippers
1 albuterol inhailer
1 pair of reading glasses that have not been worn in 2 years
3 tea-light candles 1/2 burned
1 bottle of KY sensual mist
1 hair clip
1 pair of earrings
9 elastic ponytail holders
1 bobby pin
1 tube of chapstick
1 abc necklace for baby
1 tape measure
1 baby calendar with stickers for the 1st year (because when else would I write down things about the baby except when I'm dead tired sleeping from taking care of her all day?)
And just so you do not think I live like a complete slob...I must show you the AFTER:
It will be so nice to end the ever on going joke with my husband....who constantly pokes jabs at me for the overflowing drawer. Note: the first picture was after I had cleaned it out. All contents listed were IN the drawer. He would poke fun and say, Here honey, "Can you put this in your drawer?" Next week I will be taking a picture and posting it of his desk in our basement office.
Ahhhhhh....ALL that cleaning really wore me out. Now, I must go to bed and look at my clean drawer before falling peacefully asleep.
