I remember you, USAmma.  I was around a lot when my first two were little  (2004+ ish).  I now have a 3 year old, and have just come back for a peek.  I have missed Mothering! 
My son's room.  It was clearly suffering and yet I ignored it mostly out of dread.  I could always find something more pressing.  Well, we went through there today and it is awesome now.   Clean closet, lots of space.  Clean floor, clean surfaces.  Clear drawers.  He is in there just loving it.  Out came two whole trash bags of broken toys and rubbish, and one lovely box of donatable toys.  It is very inspiring for moving on to the next task.
