This is also my entry for this weeks Friendly Friday Blog Hop:

Go and visit some of the other bloggers and share your info!


  1. I think the list of things that I need to organize might be too big :) My problem is that I organize something and then my husband or one of my two boys goes and messes everything up again. By that point I'm too tired to want to re-organize :)

  2. I so hear you on that one. One day one of the kids was opening something and dropped the wrapper on the floor where he stood. I was flabbergasted and asked "What have I done to make you think that was in any way acceptable"? (espcially w/the garbage not 5 feet away. *sheesh* Stay strong! :O)

  3. followed your blog. well I have a list that long too. not sure if I will ever get through them.

  4. Thanks for the visit, comment and follow, SS. I understand the feeling of being overwhelmed by domesticity ... I think I was absent the day they passed out those skills! But I figure any little bit I accomplish puts me ahead of where I am now. :O)
