I have rarely looked forward to a normal day like I look forward to this one. We are finally coming out of our flu fog and school is back in swing this week. Hip hip hooray for simple problems like running out of eggs.
Sunday we had set aside for a family work day outside. The weather was fan-tabulous and we all enjoyed being out there. We pulled weeds and cleaned the pool and picked up rocks in the field.
We had a work filled weekend. The kind that makes you wish for Monday when all there is to do it some school work with the kids and dinner in the crockpot.
It’s been a few weeks of endless activity around here. I spent Saturday driving girls around to craft stores so they could find what they need to create some jewelry for their shop. Then we ate Chick-fil-A and talked about our favorite suspense movies.
This weekend proves what my whole family has feared….I am on a mission to get my house completely cleaned out. I mean completely.
I have to say, as much as I love the holidays I love this part of the year too! No more events or fancy decorations and parties. Those are fun, but I’m a homegirl.
I thought I’d show you the nitty gritty of how I keep my school area organized and looking halfway like a normal space and not an explosion.
Hoo boy it was a rough weekend.
We always clean the house and work in the yard on Saturday mornings. It had been a couple of weeks since we’d been able to do a really thorough job. Everyone pulled together.
Remember the old joke….Knock knock. Who’s there? Banana. Banana who? Knock knock. Who’s there? Banana. Banana who? So on and so on until-Knock knock. Who’s there? Orange. Orange who? Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?
I’m a detail person. I organize. It sounds good on the surface, but living with me is not always easy.
Next weekend is the wedding I’ve been telling you about.
