So I got a little distracted from my list with the laundry that has been on my couch for way too long, unmatched socks and scrubbing my bathroom clean. I have knocked down #2 and #3 this week. I fear it to be so, but the toys must be next. We have little kid guests coming in and out this next week and if I don't tackle the toys now I fear for what will happen.
For me this will involve emptying all of the toys boxes and baskets into the middle of the room. Relabeling the containers and sorting. This is not my idea of fun by any stretch of the imagination. Then I will put them on a high, high shelf (though I know a 3 and 4 year old who can construct a ladder) and hope that they don't get drug back out before the new toys make their grand appearance. Ugh.
I'll have to take a picture to give you an idea of my definition of overwhelming.
I've heard from several of you of the great progress you are making on the home front. Heather is organizing 8 closets, Mindi is on the toy purge, Monica (my blogging long lost twin) has conquered her kitchen junk drawer and reclaimed some cabinet space.
Keep up the great work and I'll be thinking of you as I sort Polly Pocket shoes and Lego pieces tomorrow.
