Kelly vs. Goliath (Conquering the Basement)

Creek went the door as I slowly opened it and looked into the dark abyss.  What awaited me down there scared the living bejeebers out of me!  Could I do it, would I dare?

Wow - I should consider writing horror flicks!  That's exactly what my basement is - a horror.  Filled with overflowing boxes and bins, it was hard to know where to start.

So I just threw myself in and started digging.  I am thrilled to announce that progress is being made.  First, we piled garbage into one pile and donations into another.  Then we hauled each pile into the car to either the dump or the thrift shop and some things were given to friends (the girls Barbie castle is now happily being played with by a little cutie-pie).  
Two trips to the dump and two to the thrift shop (where I admit, I did buy one thing - baby steps)!
Now we have one clear corner - yippie (oh happy day, oh happy day)!  Hey, it's the little things in life that make me happy.  It's just one corner of the basement, but it's a start!
Look what I found buried in the rubble - The Hubs and I were dating when we had these photo booth pics taken down the shore (that's Jersey speak for the beach)!  Can't wait to see what else I uncover - unpacking all those boxes feels like Christmas morn!
Please don't make me suffer, oops, I mean enjoy this experience alone.  What's your "Impossible"?  It doesn't have to relate to decorating and organization - anything will do.  Always wanted to learn to sew, swim, fly, learn Swahili?  Whatever it is, give it a go with us.  
Update:  See the big basement reveal here!

Don't make me beg - but I would love for you to follow me!  Either through Facebook (where we party like it's 1999) or Google Friend Connect, a reader or email (check the right sidebar).  I promise it won't hurt!
