For the past several weeks our Apple TV remote has been missing from our bedroom.  So yesterday I did a major deep cleaning of the room.  Pulled the bed out, flipped the mattress, washed everything, emptied out nightstands, vacuumed EVERYTHING...the whole bit.  It took all day.

Confession #5: I don't deep clean very often.

Good News:  the room is very clean.

Bad News:  no remote.

I did, however ... find 17 pairs of glasses in my nightstand.

And that doesn't included the ones in my backpack, in the car, in my desk cubbie and a few other places.

I've decided I need to do that to every room. No telling what I might find.

My house is too full.  I asked a friend recently if she would come over when I wasn't home and throw away half of everything in here (it's a good thing my kids don't live at home anymore.... 2 would have to go).

Bye for now.

p.s. Lesson I learned today:

Don't buy any more glasses for a while.
