So Christmas is gone and the mess is still here. It's really nice having the festivities and of course the gifts but I sure do hate doing the clean up. I always contemplate on the pick up and procrastinate as much as possible. But of course it has to get done and I'm the one that always does it. Today I was stuck inside the house, due to the negative temperature, so I decided to take on the pick up. I actually got everything done in about one hour. My son helped me as much as possible and we both enjoyed it. He's at an age that he loves to help me out and I let him. I see it as bonding time and of course a little help for mommy. Here are some pictures of my before and my after.
