Upon moving to Germany we found a two bedroom with basement storage. There should be a way to insert angel choir singing here. Anyway, it was pure bliss and the insanity commenced. Don't need it right now, put it in the basement. Will probably never need it again, put it in the basement. Don't want to deal with it, put it in the basement. Then we decided to buy a piece of property and build a house. A four bedroom house with a full basement. Feel free to insert the angel choir. As you might imagine the insanity continued. We moved in almost two years ago and it got to the point that I would walk through the basement with my eyes locked on the floor.
So a couple of weeks ago I convinced my husband and we started cleaning out the basement. I thought about taking before pictures and posting them, but who would want to see that? Besides, I really didn't want to share it. This morning I was catching up on my blog reading and saw Nicole's post "The Empty Basement". I think it was pretty gutsy and tomorrow morning I am taking pictures of our basement and posting them. They may not be true before pictures, but I think everyone will get an idea of the real before considering we have already spent about 4 hours
