One Down and a few more Tasks to go!

I was so thankful that the girls caught the "help Mom" bug yesterday.  We have way too many clothes.  I had gotten several loads behind - folding, hanging and putting away.  Thanks to my girls they jumped right in and we just had a clothes folding/organizing party.  Or so H declared.  I can't tell you how wonderful it felt to have them help me tackle this.  I told them if they didn't give me anything as a present, this was the perfect gift.  It was so overwhelming, but when we all chipped in it was not so bad. 

Now we still have a few loads that need to be washed etc. and the "basket of missing a mate socks" is still there, but all in all I can check that one off the to do list.  Since the rain has set in I know yardword is off the list for the next few days, so I will pick another inside task.... Maybe I will finally get my kitchen organized and decluttered? 

I know I will be spending time with Mom on Thursday so- probably not much work will be done at our house.  I look forward to spending some quality time with MOM:)

Just enjoying time with my Family!

It's is a busy season, but I don't want to be too busy to enjoy it.  Loving the extra time I have off from work to catch up on some things around the house and spend time with my family.  I hope that my list of things to do will be checked off by the time we all go back to school.
1. organize kitchen
2. clean out my closet
3. yard work
4. tackle the laundry
5. help my Mom
