Less than two weeks until the big move date! Cue panic!
Today, we loaded everything I’ve packed so far into the POD, along with the kids’ loveseat that will go in the basement. I’m going to have to go through another pile of stuff I thought was organized but the kids dumped more stuff on top of it. From now on out, each box will get taken out directly instead of lingering inside. It’s too easy to get buried, moved, etc.
I also helped Littlest clean her room today and oh dear Lord it was a nightmare. Every time she “cleaned” her room by herself, she just shoved stuff under her bed or worse, in her closet. So we dragged out tub after tub, filled with everything from crayons to dirty clothes to trash to stuffed animals and everything in between.
The worst, though: doll hair.
Evidently Littlest is a budding hair stylist and has worked on every Barbie and doll she has. Unfortunately, she never threw the hair away – she just hid it in her closet. It was actually quite creepy! (At least she didn’t take doll heads!)
We went through every drawer, every item of clothing, every toy. I have a stack of stuff to donate and several more bags of trash as a result. And her room is packed! She just has the stuff on her bed remaining.
Only two more kids to go….
