First of all I love getting comments from people. Sometimes you just wonder if anyone is reading your blog. Brooke so glad you are okay and back home. Can't wait to hear about your trip. You are so sweet!
Kaylyn you are so kind. I think I am at an easier time in my life to get more crafting done than I was even 2 or 3 years ago, but I have always made time to craft it is my sanity saver.
Coco scraping at least one day a week should be mandatory! LOL
This morning started with Alan & I getting up at 4:45. I made his lunch while he got ready for work. When he left my day got very productive. I did the following: Started reorganizing the den, did 5 loads of laundry, the girls were being pistols so they got grounded from the T.V. and sent to time out for a while. So in the mean time I took everything but their beds and barbie houses out of their room. After they were released from time out all they had left in their room was the barbie houses and a few barbies each. I had all of their things in our bedroom including all their clothes. They have a bad habit of changing clothes several times a day. So I picked out 5 outfits for the rest of this week, p.j.'s and underclothes. The rest of the clothing is packed in containers that I will pull out the outfits again for next week. I have the church dresses hung in our closet. I got 3 bags of trash from the items that they had packed away from last week due to combining the girls in one room since we will have the Lucas family living with us.( TOO EXCITED!!) Anyway I also got 2 and a half bags of toys and clothing to give away. Their bedroom looks so clean, I love this!
After I was done with this I got dinner ready, we are having Cheesy potatoes with ham, summer squash and chocolate pudding. Just waiting on Alan to get home from work.
Tomorrow I will be working with E'lyse and Dallas packing up items from their rooms. We will be going up to Pinetop next Friday to help Coco, Kyle and Talmage move down.
Oh before I forget I found a lady that is amazing. Okay I think she is. I don't normally watch the Rachel Ray talk show but, I turned the T.V. and it was on their was a lady named Stephanie. She wanted to cut down on expenses so she made a resolution to cook dinner in her crock pot every day of this year. Her blog is called "A Year of Crock Potting". This is the link to her blog http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/. I don't know about you but I love my crock pot. I use mine about 3 times a week. So I printed off some of the recipes and they sound wonderful. There are revues or verdicts for each of them. So check it out!
So after dinner, scriptures, prayer with the family and dishes I am headed for a bath, reading and early to bed. Tomorrow I hope to get to work on my Christmas items, maybe squeeze in some scrap book fun too!! Heck I think I might do a page or two while I wait for my sweetie to get home. Have a great night!
