As I enter into the third and last trimester of growing this baby in me I’ve definitely started nesting! It also helps that school is out so I can devote more time to cleaning/organizing projects without as many interruptions.
Here’re some small successes from this past week.
1. Cleaned and reorganized mine and the kids office. This included throwing out or reassigning ownership of old papers, sorting through the kids school stuff and art work, and simplifying our bookshelve where we keep our art supplies, notebooks, coloring books, and other educational games and such.
2. Went around the house and “got rid” of books that we really don’t need to keep. Hopefully someone else will get some good use out of them. We are blessed with so many books but I’ve noticed if we have too many they just don’t get read. I also put some away in a box that we can rotate out so they’ll still be around when we want them.
3. Cleaned, threw away, sorted and reorganized our “junk” drawers in the kitchen. Hopefully it will be easier to find things in them now.
Next week, I hope I can say I cleaned out the garage, organized a few more boxes in the basement (and got rid of all the horrible brown recluse spiders there! ug!!), cleaned the sewing room and started on my daughter’s summer skirts I bought material for back in April! I know that’s an ambitious list but I want to get as much “grunt” work done before I have absolutely no more energy and it gets unbearably hot…which doesn’t leave me much time on either account!
