Spring cleaning

Spring/summer/fall cleaning will take on an added dimension. Sonshine will be graduating from high school and shipping off to Navy boot camp at some point. In addition, DD will also be moving out on her own.

So any major cleaning will most likely also involve sorting and then packing or giving away. Since I was too bushed to do yard work Sunday, I decided to clean my room. The office space, not the bedroom.

All our family movies were in my room on my bookshelves. Well, I don't watch hardly any of them. Sonshine has his favorites of course, as does DD, so I sorted through and reclaimed my shelves which have bowed with the weight of all those movies.

I went from this...

To this...
And these...
 These are what we're keeping.

 These are for DD and the Brown Eyed Girl to sort through. Anything left goes on Ebay.

And this is Sonshine's box for when he gets to a permanent place of residence other than a ship.

I'm looking forward to cleaning up, cleaning out, and reclaiming my spaces for new purposes.

I also have 3 shelves of movies I would love to part with. I've tried several times but the youngest always says no. Now that she's been away at college a year I wonder...

Looks like you're off to a good start!
