Tackle It Tuesday – Week 5

by Janice

Tackle it Tuesday

Jackson’s Room

Determination, persistence…ok …procrastination.

At after 10pm, I valiantly began to tackle my project. And while I patted my back about my commitment to my blogging project, I had to chuckle about my knack for procrastination.

Yes, today got away from me – that tends to happen often with me – and I didn’t get to my tackle project until 10pm. The only problem was my project for the week was my son’s room! I had already taken the before pictures, but hadn’t gotten to the tackling yet.

So, I waited until he was soundly asleep, and I had finished visiting some blogs, and I crept into his room and began cleaning. He barely moved as I tackled his room for more than an hour. I must say it worked out quite nicely. I didn’t have him playing with toys as I tried to put them away and destroying my “work of art.” (There will be time enough for that tomorrow – but at least I have the pictures to prove it was clean!)

So here are my before pictures:

And Jackson slept through it all:

Note: If you are wondering why I haven’t updated the room to a more boy-friendly, four year old theme, we had hoped to have our baby that was due in early June moved in here and have Jackson in his new room. We have all the hockey decor ready to go and we were about to start turning the office into Jackson’s big boy room last fall. Unfortunately, we lost our baby and decided to keep Jackson in the nursery room for the time being. We are still hopeful that we will need a nursery soon, so I haven’t wanted to repaint and redecorate only to turn it back into a nursery. But Jackson has been complaining lately about his room being babyish, so we will see what happens.
