I'm looking for ideas on how to decorate this house! We've lived here for 8 months and I still don't have things anywhere close to where I want them. I haven't painted Grant's room, I haven't painted our master bedroom, I haven't painted our master bath, the mud room, the living room or the laundry room. So I look through catalogs and I've been spending more time on HERE again, which gets me sidetracked and in trouble. =-) Suddenly I don't care about the inside of the house anymore, because I found THIS! Mark can make this in a weekend, right? And it would be cheaper than a swingset/playset, right? I mean it's just some wood and screws, right? And this would be so much fun to play in, right?

Today is much like any other day. I wake up, get the kids their breakfast and then sit down to write down the things I want to accomplish today. Usually this involves some sort of organization. I'm ALWAYS on a quest to be a more organized person. I'm convinced it will never happen - you're either born with it or you're not...and I was not. I've purchased the storage containers, I've purged unwanted items, I've even purchased the label maker and I'm sure it's around here somewhere.

But I still enjoy reading and watching TV shows about being organized, perusing products that claim to help you get you organized, etc. Today I stumbled upon THIS Web site. Isn't it great?

Let's see - on today's agenda: cleaning, reading more about being organized, listing a few more things on Craiglist (back-to-school fund now at $198 thanks to Craigslist!) and then later going to lunch with a friend and a bunch of her friends. She recently lost her husband to cancer and today would have been their 20th wedding anniversary. Please pray today is full of warm memories and that God's peace be with her and her children.
