I had big plans this week. Then the week started, or maybe I should say last week continued. My kids were both feeling lousy last week and were just finally both over it on Tuesday. Then I woke up on Wednesday morning. End of story, at last count I have taken three (or is it four now?) naps today…following the exact same pattern they did. Ugh.
I was planning to participate in Project Simplify with Simple Mom. This week would have been drawers & closet….I want to cheat and just link to a recent organization of my closet, but that isn’t spring cleaning so I won’t. And for drawers — I have two in my house. One holds my 2 hot pads and 6 dishtowels, and the other our silverware…not much going on there.
Instead, we had a couple sledding outings, LOTS of moose in our yard, and many hours of work. We were having Ali withdrawal’s on Wednesday, so I checked with my sister-in-law and requested her yesterday. We love our Ali, she is such a sweetie. My kids absolutely love having her come; I am adult on duty, but otherwise un-neccesary when she comes. She loves to see moose, she thinks we can beckon them on command.
The following are pictures from the last week. None of them are cleaning, organizing, or crafting. But they are all about loving children. Which is really what my job is. This week I have made deliberate effort to get priorities more defined and straightened out. It’s been a good week.
