One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Goals for the week...

Travis will be gone for work all next week. He leaves Monday and gets home late Friday night. I have decided that while he is away I will get some jobs around the house done. Here is what my list looks like:
1. Clean "junk" drawers in kitchen (we have like 4 of them) -- only need one junk drawer for basics (scissors, tape, pens, etc)
2. Organize hallway game closet and bonus room closet (both are being used for storage and are just a mess)
3. Clean my closet and do a clothing drop-off at Goodwill (I try to do this at least twice a year) -- but this time I am ready to purge more -- I have so much clothing I never wear!
4. Clean/Organize spare bedroom closet and the "empty bedroom" closet (these have random things in them -- and we will need to turn the "empty bedroom" into another nursery soon, so I better get going!
5. Donate books to library (I already have a box started, just need to go through books one more time to get rid of the non-classics, non-favorites, etc.

I think that is all for now. I am going to pick one big thing a night and hopefully my list will be complete by the time Travis gets home! Evelyn goes to sleep usually around 7PM, and I usually go to bed around 10 or so --- so that gives me 3 hours every night to work on everything. I am much more motivated when Travis is gone. He typically sits on the couch with Cocoa from 7PM until bedtime every night ---- I find myself getting sucked in to the tv time with them more often than not. AND -- since I posted these items on my blog, I am more likely to get them completed, too!

You sound like you will be busy while Travis is gone. Hopefully it will make the time go by fast. I too have too many junk drawers in the kitchen. Everytime I organize it justs gets messy again.

When do you plan on looking for baby furniture???

I get more done when JR is gone too. I think that must be a guy thing to watch TV and sit on the couch and then it just looks so appealing to do nothing that we get sucked in:)
