I’ve had a project that has driving me insane (literally) ever since I moved back home. People have been more than generous and given me tons of hand-me-downs for the kids to wear. I love hand-me-downs, don’t get me wrong, but they take a lot of work to get organized. I had plastic bags of clothes all over my house! To top it off: a) I just moved back and b) we are changing seasons and sizes. Sarah is moving to size 18 months and Zach size 24 months. Finally, this weekend I decided that something had to be done. So, Saturday I took both kids to the grocery store (oh, that was fun!) and came home started in. It took me until midnight because of the many interruptions and a couple of hours the next morning but finally everything is organized, in totes and stored in the basement. There are 3 huge bags that I need to take to goodwill and one big box that I plan to take to Once Upon A Child. While I was sorting I found about 6 pair of Zach’s shorts from last year that are in perfect condition that will fit him again this year! I was thrilled to find them. Sarah has so many clothes she can’t wear them all but Zach is about naked for the summer.
Anyway, that is one huge project I can check off my list of things to do. I managed to get all of that done and have a clean house before my parent’s came for a visit about noon on Sunday. They brought back my double stroller, a big thing to go in the yard and a bag off ball that I still had at their house.
My next 2 projects: The cupboard that has so many plastic bowls/lids in it that I can’t find anything and finding the top of the refrigerator. Maybe this weekend???
