The Little Things

When I got back from my scrapbooking weekend, one of the first things Danny asked was whether daycare was open the day after Thanksgiving. My gut reaction was no. They’ve always seemed to be off for most of our paid holidays. Much to my delight, there was a sign on the classroom doors Monday night wanting to know if the children will be dropped off next week Wednesday or Friday. I felt like I had won the lottery! I immediately called Danny with the good news before I left the parking lot. We’re both in heaven!

So, now that we have an entire weekday to ourselves, what are we going to do? We’re going to do something that we’re both looking very forward to doing – organizing our house! Yes, you read that right. We’re going to organize our house. It has not truly been organized since we moved in almost three years ago. Danny and I don’t go on as many dates as we should, but we don’t usually have any trouble getting someone to watch the kids for a couple of hours. Getting someone to help while we work around the house is an entirely different prospect. If the kids heard us moving around they would be at the gate begging to go downstairs. We’re going to put up the shelves in our pantry so that we have room for all of our non-perishable foods in there. That will free up some cabinets in the kitchen and will allow us to better organize our pots and pans. Danny’s also going to work on his office while I finish organizing my craft bar and get set up to scrapbook a couple of nights a week (Trista, take your nitroglycerin!). We’re not going to get to organize the room underneath the stairs or the storage closet, but we should be able to pull everything out into the garage. With everything out in the garage, we can go through the containers after the kids go to bed and work on that piecemeal. In no time, we’ll finally be moved in. Next we’ll just have to decorate…

I know it's such a relief when my house is in order. Hopefully, you will make a big enough dent to feel great about your progress! I'm excited about your craft bar... maybe you can continue on your awesome scrapbooking trend from last weekend!!
