completed projects part 2

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


5 magazines


4 books


4 spiral notebooks


4 coasters and coaster holder handmade by the kids


a cosmetic bag


a key


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


7 pens/pencils


1 bobby pin


1 tube of chapstick


1 battery


1 abc necklace for baby


1 tape measure


11 CD's


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.....3 pictures






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.

I'm just wondering about the sensual mist and the tape measure! I hope you left those in the drawer because you never know when that will be needed!? Did the kids help in the cleanup?
