If I have a least favorite day, it might be Friday.
I know, everyone loves Friday. I feel rushed on Friday.
Hurry to get things ready for the weekend.Food in the house?
Laundry done? Clean sheets? I spent most of Thursday down
in the basement trying to make order out of disorder.
I pulled all the bins out of the storage "room" and emptied them.
I re-sorted all of our clothes, summer/winter/etc I found my hats,
and gloves!!! I will do Princess's clothes today. I have many bins for her.
Clothes she will not fit into for a while. They need to be organized by size and season.
I used to have all my bins really well organized. Then I had P, the first year was fine..
she didn't change much (and her clothes were sooo small!) I need to pass on what no longer fits.
Put all that baby memorabilia into a scrapbook, or get rid of it!
I got a huge bag of stuff for the next "big shred", and put a bunch of papers into the recycling bin
that do not need to be shredded. Most of this should have been long gone ,I put it all in a box instead of deciding what needed to go where.I'm working on that. I have much more to do, and some school stuff as well today, and I need to be ready for Taco Night at our friend's house at 5.
I did get all my holiday decor sorted and put back inside the storage room, and I found some craft stuff that I thought I had accidentally tossed. I need to get order before Farmer Dad
gets involved. He has this habit of undoing what I just did and moving my boxes around
so that I have to start all over.It's not intentional, he THINKS he is helping. I have tons of things for the spring yard sale. I even cleaned and photographed a couple of items to post on CraigsList
this weekend. But there is still plenty more to do.We have way too much stuff!!!
Have a lovely Friday, and I promise to post some pics of what we've been doing before the weekend is over.

I wish I could come to your house and help you organize. I love doing that stuff. I think the worst part is right before the mess is back in order when everything is out and covering every surface. That is how it was the day I did the Rotate and Reduce. I could still do more pitching. What I could really use is a day in the house by myself.

I think dh is taking the kids to a model train exhibit this weekend so maybe I will have a few hours. And that's why I love Fridays. Another human is home to care for my busy fighting children. They are so much better for him.

Just as I agreed with you on loving Mondays, I also agree that Friday is my least favorite day. It is the last day of the week to get most things done. Ick.

I got everything outside the house done yesterday. But, still, Friday is the end of mine and Gavin's precious quiet time together; weekends mean that people are home and want to get together. Neighbors are all home, so base housing can be noisy and busy.

Maybe I'm strange for thinking this, but I much prefer my Monday through Friday week - time spent mostly hibernating with Gavin.

I like having housing to myself. Isn't that odd?

By the way, still envying you the snow!!!

Not a flake here in DE... Well, not of the lingering-snowy variety.

By the way, when you're done organizing (I'm about to do something similar here!), I have something for you at my blog.

I agree with you on the Monday/Friday thing. My main problem with Friday is that it is getting me closer to Sunday and I have to worry if I've done all the prep work for the church lessons.

It sounds like you got a lot done! That reminds me that I need to sort all the craft bins.

Whew! I feel tired just reading that, and it's already Saturday here!

he he he. They all seem to think they are helping. I had to laugh

I have always liked Fridays, must be a carry over from my working days.

I read your post about organizing and I had a purely selfish thought: I'm so glad I'm done doing that. (Except to re-organize the tubs my DH moved, but that won't take long.)

If I lived close, I'd help. =)

What's up with that, my husband does that also?

I am relieved to find out it isn't just my husband.

Great job! I did a lot of cleaning and organizing today. It makes me feel good.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
