Out of Sight, Out of my MindDawn Meehan
I’ve been cleaning my house in preparation for moving. I’ve gotten the boys’ room spotless. I’ve gotten the bathrooms decluttered and cleaned. Apparently I have ADD because I keep getting distracted every time I start working on another room. Every other room in the house is half-done. This week, I’ll finish cleaning and decluttering every other room. That’s the plan anyway.
Yesterday, I took out the entertainment center. By “I took out the entertainment center”, of course I mean that I stood there, telling everyone what do and complaining when they didn’t do it the right way while Austin, Savannah and my friend Eric took it apart and moved it out of the house. This piece of furniture is 100 inches long X 75 inches tall X 20 deep. Obviously it’s not something that can be moved away from the wall in order to clean behind it. This is what I found. . .
It’s like a game of I Spy!
Can you find a ball of yellow PlayDoh, a silly band, a doll with blue hair? A pair of pink scissors, a dart, and a green M&M there?
I spy a paper plane, a cable, and a little green ball. A playing card, a yellow duck, and tiny, cute doll.
Do you see a drumstick, a cupcake mold, and a little football? A dart and a puzzle piece that’s been missing since fall.
Can you spy 3D glasses, a rabbit, and a squeaky baby book? I bet you can find a tiny plane and a headband if you just take a look.
In this picture rests an antennae, a bracelet, a part of a pen. And a tin whistle that will never ever be played again.
Just be thankful I didn’t take pictures of the creatures living under the boys’ bunks.
