Before and After

Before and After

Bakset ruffled shower curtain

 

Do you ever feel that there are days when this blog is about a whole lot of after?

Without any before?

Way too much….where we are…instead of….where we’ve been?

 

Well…if “before’s” are your thing……today is your lucky day :)

 

Look what I found.

 

Laundry Room Before

 

Here’s a beautiful yellow picture of the laundry room….before.

Here’s another gem from the vault.

And here’s the after.

*sigh*

The “before” picture really wasn’t even that bad.  It just needed a little cleaning and fresh paint.

Maybe I never show the “before’s” because I wish I had a really, really great before picture.  One with peeling paint and a shower that was falling out of the wall and ripped wallpaper and a wasp’s nest and maybe a rodent or two.  That would have been awesome.

But I don’t have a “before” like that.

So in addition to my weak “before”s”……I thought I would show you a really great “during” picture.

 

Laundry Room Before

 

Because really…..when it all shakes out….there’s a whole lot of “during” around here.

A lot of muddy “during” from the all-day mud volleyball tournament.

Muddy t-shirts.

Muddy bathing suits.

Squished and squashed and plopped.

All over that beautiful, clean “after” of a laundry room.

 

Muddy Clothes

 

But I wouldn’t trade it for a second.

This muddy life I lead.

All the squishing and squashing and plopping are what makes the world go round.

Because while before and afters are wonderful…..life is truly…..

…all about the during :)

 

PS  May your day be bright and wonderful and filled with non-muddy laundry loads :)

PPS  What’s on your laundry room floor right now?
