Spring is here, but why do I keep thinking of: Kids! Wisconsin winters! And Mudrooms!
Wisconsin winters can be BRUTAL!!! Especially, when they go on, and on, and on….and on. This winter left me very frustrated! Not just because it way over stayed its welcome, but because with two kids it was an ongoing mudroom battle. I will admit that I clearly lost this battle to WET coats, snow pants, boats, backpacks, scarves, hats, socks…..a snowball that the kids brought inside to save for the next time they go out. Which was truly devastating to them and me (for different reasons), when they couldn’t find that snowball. Do I even need to mention that sand/road particle mix that makes its way right on in? I am lucky that I do have a mudroom; however it is just not an adequate space once you consider a family of four trying to get ready to leave and the washer and dryer that reside in this space. I need help! I am not sure I can handle another winter of trying to throw a load of wash in quick only to step in a puddle of water or having to brush those particles off my feet. So…as it is finally becoming Spring, I am really giving serious thought to extending my mudroom into the garage by adding cubbies/lockers. Hopefully then, I will be prepared (probably for the lightest winter ever) for next year.
Have you added cubbies/lockers in your garage?
If you are one of those lucky people that have a handle on kids, Wisconsin winters and mudrooms– feel proud. And, please share a picture of your space! (Or even a comment to inspire those of us that are still in battle!)
Hope you have been encouraged to inspire or be inspired!
