In the recent overhaul of my web site, we discovered this post from 2006 and it made me smile.

In May 2006, I traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to organize the winner of my publisher’s “Clean Up & Clear Out” contest. Not only did she “Win Donna for a Day”, she also received able assistance from NAPO-Wisconsin organizers, Paula Apfelbach and Patty Van Willigen, as well as a local maid service.

Our focus for the day was the living room, but with the contest winner’s help, we were also able to unclutter and organize the children’s rooms to create play and storage areas. The oldest child loved her room so much, she made her bed the next morning before going to school which, according to her mom, was a first!
