technically, it’s still spring

Technically, it is still Spring, which means we can still spring clean… right??

Back story.         We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on May 24th, went out on the boat May 25, 26 and 27th, worked and trained May 28, mall madness activity with the students on May 29, trained May 30, 31 and June 1, went boating May 31, June 1 and June 2…. oh and worked 40 hours the week in between.  Needless to say, come June 3 the house was a disaster, laundry was unfolded and even more still to wash, the garage was an explosion of training tools and boat toys so that we could hardly walk.              I was a bit overwhelmed.

I love working hard and playing hard, but I like being able to keep things a bit organized even during the most go-go-go times.  Last night, Mike and I created a plan for better storage in the garage.  This will help organize the boat toys when we come home from the lake and also store and organize the triathlon training stuff too.  We have a little bit to go, but I really like what we’ve done so far.

I’m super pleased with the results! Now we’re ready to conquer our next weekend packed full of fun!

We put up a dowel rod to hold the life jackets when they are drying. For long term storage they will be moved to the shed.

Mike created this mounting system for our surf boards to get them off the floor and not take up additional room.  It's awesome!

Bought and built a new larger shelf.  It now holds all the car stuff, tubes for the boat, paint supplies and triathlon stuff too.
