On Purpose

Tackle it Tuesday (Great tackle!)

Tackle_it_tuesday Head on over to to see what everyone else is tackling this week.

So this could be the best one ever.  The words I am about to write are true! 

One bright, sunny 102 degree day, our 9 and 12 year old approached me in my office.  "Mom, we were wondering if we could give the playroom a makeover.  Like really clean everything out and give stuff away to charity."  Hmmm, let me think that over boys. (I didn’t want to be too enthusiastic, lest they lose interest.)  I asked for some time and thirty seconds later yelled a resounding "Yes!" to already busy boys down the hall.

Here is the before picture:


And two days, a lot of sweat and several trash bags later, here is the after picture.  I give you the best tackle ever. 1) Because it’s truly great and 2) Because I didn’t have to do it!

Cimg0794 Yes, they are available for hire after The Fresh Prince of BelAir reruns are done for the morning.
