Decluttering update...

So....yesterday as I began #2 on my week's list (clean kitchen cupboards. Double yikes.), the boys played with Tupperware, and we enjoyed the spring breeze from the kitchen window, I realized something in the cabinet just wasn't right.

Remember this?

Well Mickey apparently has been hiding out in the kitchen cupboards. GAG ME.
I freaked a bit, then freaked some more. Todd got home, and I freaked some more. Then he vacuumed it out for me, I bought some new mouse traps, and that was that.

But besides that....get this......we got rid of SO. MUCH. STUFF. A nasty old blender, a decrepit Brita pitcher, a butt load of utensils, some disgusting cutting boards, and some other random crap that was living in the mouse den. Plus some old spices, some bowls we don't use, and some other great things for a yard sale that we haven't touched since we lived here.

Oh, and this morning, the traps were empty.
Great.
