How is your list going? I know Jill and Stacy have been working on organizing projects, and Karen has been diligently sorting things in 15 minute increments.

I haven't made a HUGE amount of progress - given the business of the month I am happy with all the things I just crossed off (in red on my list).

The boxes in the basement are gone.

The basement has been picked up, playroom reorganized again :) and has remained clean for over a week!

I've goiotten rid of a few piles of magazine and papers. Slow progress there, but progress.

Minor continued picking up of stuff in the girls rooms. Getting psyched up to do the whole thing, but progress is progress!

We've started planning

I just posted some photos of what I've been working on! :D It feels really good to get stuff done!!

This month, I'll be concentrating on finishing the kitchen paint, sewing the slipcover for the bedroom headboard, painting the master bedroom, and continuing with some of the smaller projects I've already started.

Ahhhh, we tackled the front hallway closet this afternoon. Filled the garbage can with old vacuum parts, coats too torn & worn for goodwill, old grungy boots, hats, slippers and broken umbrellas. Honestly, it's been years since everything came out of there.

It's a good thing we had the girls take the house garbage out first, because we filled the garbage can! Plenty went in the recycle bin, we have a pile for the church garage sale including shoes - I made the girls go through their shoe keepers today too - and old door holiday decorations that were gifts from various people. No nail on the new door, so no use for them, should anyone ask.

AND I have two decent coats in my car for goodwill (mine & DH's, from when we were a size or two heavier) and two snowpants & two small girls coats in the washer that I'll take to the school for extra's on Monday.

And we still have a nice coat waiting for Mira to grow into for next year!

What's nice? There is floor room in the closet, and plenty of room for guests to hang up their coats. What a concept!

Soooo - you already know about the girls bedroom. STILL haven't managed the closet, but you know, that's ok. Maybe next weekend.

I still have quite a bit to go through yet in my scrap area - it's just more fun to scrap, and since I am taking Tim's class... HOWEVER, I used up 4 more CKC layouts this weekend! I altered one, and have to add journalling to two, but now they can go in albums, the plastic bags that held them are gone, the few extra supplies are now in my stash :).

AND - We finished the entryway. I'll have to post a photo later in the week. The old narrow hand-me-down
