My Immaculate Home

Man, I'm so freakin' awesome. I decided to organize my pantry. It was a ridiculous mess. So I enlisted the help of Taylor and Erik to clean it up; not that I really had much choice in the matter, though. Here is the magnificent finished product. Look how awesomely clean it is!
No, that is not the "before" picture. That is what happens when you try to organize your cans that are on the bottom shelf with a 10-month-old and a 3-year-old. That's not to mention that stupid container of 100 assorted cookie cutters that I just HAD to have 3 years ago but have probably used only 3 of them. Taylor decided that he needed to use that plastic container to put stuff in, so he decided the cookie cutters had to be removed and would look more organized on the floor.

Now if you're not yet impressed with my spotless home, here's what my living room looks like:

I ordered a gate for my fireplace, and we made a house out of the boxes that it came in. Don't you think it just adds to the overall warmth and coziness of the room?

And last of all, here is my spic-and-span kitchen with nary a dirty dish in sight. It's tough to stay on top of all of those dirty dishes and bottles, but I am often amazed at how good I am at it.

Now for all of you who might be living in filth, which can include piles of clean and dirty laundry strewn all over your upstairs, toilets with rings in them, hairballs all over your bathroom floors, and every single bed un-made, don't despair! (Of course, judging from the pictures above, I would never tolerate such atrocities in my home...) You, too, can have such a magnificent home as I. My secret?

Two little boys and absolutely ZERO motivation at the present moment.

You must have been looking at the hair balls in my bathroom. Oh, the shame.
