Still Movin...

I thought I'd update my two readers about my movin. Yesterday afternoon and today were very productive days.

I had been getting down on myself because I wasn't movin as much as I wanted/needed to. See, I love...naps. They are my weakness (that, and a nice cold Coke!). On the weekends it's so nice to curl up with the kiddies for a nice, dare I say it...3 hour nap! Yeah, so it's not like I'm taking little cat naps...noooo, I'm wasting an afternoon with my naps. Well that has to end. Not to say I won't nap, but not as often as I have been napping.

OK, so back to more positive things. Yesterday I was off to take Jamison to the dentist and to spend a little time with her. We had plans to go to a friends house that evening as well. I decided to take advantage of the time off and I made a lasagna for tonight's dinner. Look at me thinking ahead! It was so nice to have dinner ready when we got home today, it saved SO much time. I also made a chicken club wrap to take to Tonya and Troy's house.

Then today I continued with my quest to be organized! First I cleaned out the microwave stand. You know, the place where everything gets dumped: recipes, coupons, magazines, etc. I put my cookbooks nicely on the shelf and threw away a bunch of stuff I don't need. This weekend I plan on doing a little project with my Kraft Foods Magazines that I saw over on Carrie's blog. I'll be sure to post pictures to show you how it goes.

After that the kids and I headed upstairs and I was determined to do something with my room. See, my room is a disaster area. I don't know why but there is just way too much stuff in it. So, I got the trash can and went to work. There is still stuff to do and organize (sounds like a trip to the Container Store to me!), but I got a lot accomplished. One of the baskets I bought from Garden Ridge I used for all of my makeup (you know the makeup I never wear but swear I'm going to one day...). I'll have to take a picture of that another day when we finally paint the bathroom.

So, all in all I'm pretty satisfied with my movin.

I'm a reader! I LOVE your blog! It's sooo cute that your husband comments on your blog! You're sooo lucky! I wish I had readers who read my blog! I have a really good pot roast recipe to share with you, I thought of you the last time I made it. I figured with two kids you probably like recipes that take little time in preparing. Next week I'll post it for you...it's easy and it's super good! Have a great day!

Oh, you know I love organizing - almost more than shopping!

Naps are nice, but accomplishing things always makes me feel much better about myself.

My favorite nap is Sunday after church, though. That really refreshes me so I can tackle the next week.

Good job on the organizing. I'm actually a little suprised that you're unorganized because you're so fond of list making. That would make me more organized, but I guess that hard part is completing the list! :)

I need some more hair help.

Amanda's hair keeps getting knotted and tangled in the back when she sleeps. Does Jamison sleep with a durag or something? I have a little cotton hat I'm trying. Should I trim off those ratty ends?

I love Jamison's braids. Her hair looks so long!
