Mom’s Clean Sweep

Sunday, June 18th, 2006

~ Before ~

Clock In : 6/18/06 – 11:45am

O’ Son of mine usually washes his sheets, after the big storm last
Wednesday the dog was all muddy and slept on the bed.

3 years ago I cleaned and organized his room, it took over 8 hours. I was never going to clean it again. The dust on his shelves has turned to dirt. Well, I’m tired of begging, nagging, and yelling. He’s out of town and I have house guests half the summer so I’m cleaning it and throwing away stuff so it is presentable. – send a search party if I turn up missing….

He is not allowed to have food or drinks in his room…. look around!

Now I see why it is such a fight, I wanted to cry after I worked a few hours and the pile was still winning. I hope he is happy I did this, I doubt he will miss any of the stuff I tossed.

New Dressers

I have been looking for a new set of dressers at yard sales. The one he has was falling apart. I found a couple of almost new ones Saturday. Just the motivation I needed to get started on his room.


He gets a new bed

I found that the springs in his bed have broke and are sticking out, he needs a new box spring and mattress. Now. He got a new extra long twin box spring and mattress. We have no bedding that size in the house so he also got a new mattress pad and sheets. His pillow sucked so I got him a new one of those too.

Lost &ampFound

  • Earring on night stand??? (blinking light, clip. not a girls)
  • MY tape dispenser from MY desk
  • 2 screw drivers

Cost

  • $50 2 dressers
  • $350 mattress&ampbox spring
  • $44 Mattress protector
  • $50 Sheets &amppillow

Laundry –
I lost count of loads I did the first day, below is the pile of clean laundry I washed plus one load is in the washer, one in the dryer, plus 2 hampers with more. I found cloths he grew out of years ago piled under toys and stuff. In his defense his dresser drawers were hard to pull out on the bottoms were falling off.


Out the Door:
  • Bags of Toys: 8
  • 1 Box of Books
  • Broken dresser

    (I put a free sign on it and it was gone in less than an hour)

  • Black yard bags of Trash: 15
  • Tall kitchen bags stuffed animals 6
  • 42 drink bottles and a bag of cans

    (dog took it over)

“No mom, I don’t take drinks to my room.”
