State of the House

So…you’re probably wondering why I haven’t posted anymore on my whole organization/housecleaning schedule. Well…I fell of the horse. I broke a few bones. I sat and wallowed in my misery. Ugh.

SOOOOOOO….tomorrow is Monday. The day for fresh starts. I plan on getting off my butt and getting back ON the horse I vowed I would ride throughout the rest of this year. I have several goals in mind:

1. My home to be clean/straightened every day by the time Mike gets home from work.

2. To do at LEAST one load of laundry a day so that I’m not catching up on the weekends.

3. Take care of the contacts I need to make FIRST before doing any other thing that needs to be done. I have several phone calls and appts that need to be made that I have put off too long…

I think that’s a pretty decent start. Next week I hope to add the declutter calendar to my list. It’s such an easy tool I need to USE IT!!

Hey…who knows…maybe one day I’ll have my life so organized I can schedule time to blog every day…ok ok…I’ll stick with my three goals above…heh

Well, the boy I liked was at PH and being a 6th grade girl I did what any girl my age would do. I chased him. And then I tripped over one of those parking curbs. Yep. I was a dork.

I fell in love all over again this Valentine’s Day

I know you’re probably thinking I’m talking about Mike…but I’m not…heehee…although WHAT I feel in love with directly relates to that wonderful husband of mine. He bought me THIS for my minivan. Yup…I have completely fallen in love all over again with my iPod. I think this is by FAR one of the greatest inventions of all time. I’ve been listening to podcasts for LOST, housecleaning (yes…I am STILL working on motivating myself more in this area), Relevant, Focus on the Family, and some others. AND I can download children’s books for my kids to listen to in the car…it saves me from having to suffer hearing loss from the fights in the backseat.

This is SO NOT a Pay Per Post blog…I just LOOOOOOOOOVE my iPod…LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! I told Mike for my birthday he can get me the iPod Alarm Clock…if and when I get that I will not be going ANYWHERE (except the shower) without it by my side…
