Last week was a blur. Last weekend was a blur. Today is finally non-blurry. The kids slept until 8:00 am: win. The kids have played awesome in the toy room and their bedrooms all morning: win. We made it through Target without incident: win.
But before my house is littered in pine needles and candy canes, I've got the summer days of August and September still. And, tightly scrunched between September and Christmas is my favorite time of all. Bring on the colored leaves, the pumpkins, the apples, the hayrides, the cider, the bonfires, the jeans and sweaters.
Hall closets, toy room closets, pantry shelves, and laundry room shelves all have newly arranged bins and baskets and hooks. I'm going to add Professional Organizer to my resume. And maybe Professional Dump-If-I-Don't-Use-It-Because-I-Can't-Stand-Clutter, too.
But wait, have you noticed the theme in these pictures? While I was busy reorganizing what didn't really even need to be organized, my kids were busy playing ever-so-nicely, but ever-so-messily. So now that my closets look nice, it's time to make the rest of my house look nice, too.Today is only Monday. And even though my calendar says there is nothing happening this week, you and I both know that life doesn't work that way. Does it?
