So here is an example of what I'm dealing with. What you can't see in this picture is that the other two counters are spotless. I'm hoping in a few weeks that this will be gone. There are--unfortunately--other areas. I'll show you those as well. I figure making it public means I have to get rid of it now.
This whole idea of taking the pictures was actually a thought my husband and I had to take these pictures and send them to his mother as an argument that we didn't need any more stuff. We can't deal with the stuff we have and every ounce of new stuff that comes into the house is just more stuff we have to find a place for. Sigh. I'm working on it--in 15 minute increments. So far, so good. I'll show you the good tomorrow or later today.
