saturday: December 29th
no new photos, sorry. but today was a great day. i started it by meeting my dear, preggo friend, Kelsey, at my favorite store in the entire world (Treasury of Memories)! actually, i started my day with driving RIGHT UP to my choice of the gas pumps as Costco AND running into the store to get formula and getting out of the store less than 5 minutes later! seriously, around here, that NEVER happens at costco!
so after spending about an hour at the store with kels, we both headed out. i came home to a napping child and a working husband. i got busy myself and finished hanging my new message board center (a christmas present from my mom). then i started cleaning up my scrap space and that dreaded mess of a bonus room. that room and the guest room are disasters currently. i can’t wait until we have a garage sale or just give everything to ARC or the Goodwill. i just want all that crap out of my house! but back on track… i barely started cleaning the bonus room (craft area) when buster woke up from a pretty short nap. he was cranky so i fed him, played with him and got him pretty content to play on his own. then i hit cleaning mode. i picked up, put away, re-arranged and re-organized… and pretty much finished up my craft area (until we get our new cabinets up there). davey went down for a nap (while i was still cleaning) and i got started on more of the bonus room. i put away all the Christmas wrapping paper and cleaned off the bed in that room (it was covered with junk). all-in-all, i spent over 3 hours cleaning out part of that one room. but it was worth it.
i was able to sit down and make a 2008 calendar for us while davey took a THREE HOUR nap! yep. he needed the sleep… he’d been so cranky earlier. i still have a lot of cleaning to do in the bonus room, the guest room and our home office (heck, even our living room is a bit chaotic still) but one room at a time is my motto. and with my craft stuff all put away and organized, now i can FIND stuff so i can actually MAKE stuff when it’s needed. now THAT is exciting!
and davey is about 90-95% improved from his horrific Christmas Cold (complete with fever). the little guy has bounced back tremendously well. just a small cough remains. now, if only he would stop waking up at 4 or 4:30 in the morning…… :)
SO GET COMMENTING! (winners will be chosen at random).
coming soon, my "TAG" post and more photos of davey (since that’s what my mom INSISTS on seeing when she checks my blog). oh yeah, which reminds me…. mom, my RED on Christmas Day was in my HAIR!!! yep. red highlights. and i love ‘em!! :)
