Baby Makes 5

Saturday, January 3, 2009


OK, it is 4:41pm and I have 3/4 of the Christmas put away (well, not including the mack daddy tree) , 3 loads of laundry done and folded, I have showered and fed 3 kids (almost 2 times now), caught-up on my soap from last week (while working away of course) and have unpacked all the 3 kids bags from the trip...progress, slow and steady...OK, back to work!

Is anyone else feeling overwhelmed...?! We just got back in town after a week away...I am now facing: putting all of my Christmas away ( no small feat), piles of laundry, unpacking bags and all the gifts, thank you notes (birthday and Christmas), a school science project that needs to be started prior to Monday, a playroom that needs to be cleaned and re-organized to make room for the new loot (this sort of happened mid-December but time again!), a closet that is in bad, bad shape (I must find my fav Yoga pants), a craft/scrapbook/Christmas wrapping room that is begging to be cleaned and, these are just a few things on my "to do" list this weekend. I always make a point to start the New Year off right and clean and organized by the time the kids are off to school in January and Bryan returns to his home office (ah, yet another MAJOR job that needs tackling)...not sure what I will accomplish between now and Monday but I am off to start...wish me luck!

PS-Didn't plan to post until Monday again but I needed a way to avoid my list!

I was feeling very overwhelmed but it has settled and things are getting done!

Answering your question about I am not! My kids are in Christian school but I admire and support all you homeschooling moms...I do think it's the best but at this stage of life it's not possible for us! Have a great weekend..get some stuff done!

Don't sweat my office, I (we, you, somebody) will get to it one day. Thanks for doing all of the other stuff. I love you and we are off to a good start for the New Year.
