Monday's Monet Moment

Happy Monday!

I know this is very late! I have been twirling around the house like a total madwoman today!!! My "to do" list is about five miles long in preparation of The Emilys imminent arrival, and although I worked nearly non-stop, I didn't get many things crossed off the list. I spent most of the day cleaning and organizing Bella's room and playroom. The two smallest rooms of the house took me nearly ALL DAY!! Tons and tons of stuff thrown away, and also given away. That kid is a total pack rat!!! Magazines, catalogs, scraps of paper, fast food toys, on and on and on!!! I also was able to "sneak" out some toys that were way too young for her, but that she had weird attachments to. She doesn't like to let anything go!!! I was expecting drama and tears when she came home from school, but surprisingly, she was totally OK with it! Now she has tons of room to actually play in her playroom! I did organize my desk too, cleaned out the kitchen cupboards, cleaned the fridge and freezer, did four loads of laundry, made bread and the usual daily chores. Tomorrow? Right back at it, cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming, dusting and the oh-so-fun Commissary run. I'm finishing up my meal menu (I'll post it tomorrow!), so I'll make sure I have everything on hand! It's going to be YUMMY!!!! For now? An early bedtime!!!

My goodness I have to take a nap just reading your list of accomplishments. I bet it feels so good and it will feel even better once it is done.

Going through the kids' toys is on my to-do list, too. Didn't make it there today and sure hope I have the energy tomorrow. I noticed my youngest doesn't play in there nearly as much as her older siblings did. Maybe the mess is too overwhelming to her, too!
