I've been very lazy about this whole spring cleaning concept, but I did finally clean out the hall closet this weekend. I took all the snow pants and gloves and hats and scarves and boots out, since it's April now, and the weather's been warm and friendly lately. I've been putting it off, because I'm lazy, and I knew it'd be a big job.
I sorted by sizes and bagged up stuff that won't fit the kids next snow-season to give away. I organized all the gear into bins and drawers that go to the basement for storage, and the piles of bags that go to friends and Goodwill. And then I left them all in the hallway, and had a glass of wine and watched some more Indiana Jones.
Thank goodness for me, I'm still lazy at heart.
When I woke up this morning to an inch of snow on the ground, and flurries fluttering around my cold dog who just wanted to do her potty without getting her paws cold, I remembered those bags and bins in the hall. Even the dog's Ruff Wear Cloud Chaser winter coat is in a bag in the hall.
Well, I thought, good thing I didn't haul all those bags and bins to the basement! That was so smart of me.
Although, if I'd been even lazier, I never would have cleaned out the closet in the first place, and I'd be even smarter. Lesson learned.
