While Jonathan was away...

Aunt B was taking care of Ace last Saturday morning and Jonathan went for a run so I woke up early and DESTROYED our upstairs. Our attic has been bothering me forever. We have tons of boxes up there and we're always sucking in our guts and weaving between them when we have to get up there. Here's what it looked like once I got everything out of the attic.

I was just crossing my fingers that Jonathan wouldn't come home at this point.
I just HAD to take a photo after I emptied the attic. Too bad that I don't have a before photo!

I felt SOOOO accomplished afterwards. I put everything into plastic bins (on sale for $3.50 at Lowes) and put it back in the attic after the tailgate on Sunday. Now, I have an entire aisle to walk through stacked and labeled bins and even a free space to walk through.
And Jonathan didn't have to lift a finger!
(Can this count as an early birthday present for him?)
P.S. My thighs, behind and calves were on fire until Tuesday!

I LOVE accomplishing project like that! It feels so great - especially if you've been putting it off for a while. Way to go! And I love your dark hair. :)
