I think I know what Jonah felt like when he was swallowed by a whale. Since we put our house on the market we have been going through things, and getting rid of everything we don't need or want to move. Which is a huge part of our house. The worst so far was going through the toys. I think we spent about three months on sorting all the toys that contain 1,362 pieces each.
OK, so maybe it was only like 6 days. Surely it would have been longer if our realtor hadn't called and said, "Can we show your house tonight?" That was Wednesday of this week. That was a stressful day, but I am thankful we have people at least interested in the house, and it was a great motivator to get that daunting task done. No thanks to the kids, I might add. Their theme song through this whole ordeal has been "We are the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything"
Now we have a new rule for our household. No toys are allowed to enter that contain 1,362 pieces. Those toys that only have 2 pieces.... we MAY consider those. Depending on the mood of the day.
Back to the belly we will go, and onward we will trudge until we've got the whole
belly house cleaned out.
