I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Now there's only one thing to figure out...where to put everything. This year I'm going to make a note to find some space for the new toys before they arrive...whew! More on that next week...
I did get a few things done over the holiday, but of course with all of the madness not as much as I thought...but that's OK. That's what the New Year is for right?
I finished all of my shopping and we only lost one gift...still can't find where we put the MP3 player for Jamison. I'm hoping that with all of the cleaning we'll be doing over the next few weeks that we'll find it...prayers lifted :)
I did take my friend a meal and she said that the meals were a huge help for her after her surgery...I'm so glad :) I ended up making her baked ziti (a recipe that she gave me), but I didn't cook it so that she would be able to pop it in whenever she needed dinner. I need to think about doing that for myself more often.
I never made it to the Container store but I will make it there in the next few weeks. Oh how I love that store...I could get lost...where was I?
The thing I want to show you this week is organizing meds in your home. This system has really worked for us and keeps kids' stuff separate from adult stuff (I'm so technical, right). Here's my system:
I got these little baskets from Hobby Lobby and divided up the medicine, one basket for kids' cold/allergy/vitamin meds, one for kids' pain or Rx meds, one for our cold/allergy/vitamin meds, and one for our pain and Rx meds.
This is just me trying to be cute with a little camera angle.
Just a few close ups (am I the only one who loves the up & up brand by Target?):
And then I just keep them all here in one of our (few) cabinets in the kitchen. This system makes things easier to grab and works well for us...simple.
This Week's To Do List
1. Get together with my friend Katie and work on simple photo editing and look through my camera manual.
2. Clean off microwave stand and discard any old recipes or papers.
3. Organize entertainment center...donate/sell old DVDs, organize games and Wii stuff.
4. Crop photos for my Christmas card scrapbook.
