My bedroom is just about complete with purging and organizing, now it's just finding the right decor. I am thinking the colors green and brown with a few hints of black and maybe gold. I think I will use foresty type things along with bears. Not positive on that yet, I will just see how it goes, decorating is the last thing I am going to do as purging and organizing comes first since that is the most time consuming!
As I was doing regular kitchen chores (ahem, the dishes!) I decided to go through my pantry and organize so I don't have food sprawled around the kitchen. I hate clutter, I hate messy and I like, ok I LOVE organized. So when I finally get to the kitchen it's just one less thing I have to organize!
Tonight marks a big mark for our daughter! She FINALLY gets her "big girl bed"! We have one of those convertible cribs so tonight I said is the night I took the extra half hour and put on the big kid railing so she doesn't fall out (or at least it will help prevent it some!) At first she looked a little scared but then as I did the good night routine with the kids I noticed she starting thinking "wait a minute, I'm not stuck in bed anymore, I can keep playing! but should I? but I can!" haha it was so cute seeing the wheels turn in her head. In fact I hear her playing with the toys right now, probably to the disappointment of her brother who is still "stuck" in his crib! Once I get the kids room purged and organized I will put his big kid railing on so he can have a big boy bed! I could tell he is totally ready for it, its just a matter of there being too many toys in that room right now and I'd like it to be organized so I know they aren't pushing the bigger toys up to the dressers and climbing on them to try to see out the window. Yes, I can totally see my kids doing that because that is totally something I would have done when I was a kid! haha :)
Well I am almost caught up with laundry as well this weekend, but we all know that is a recurring chore so is it really possible to ever get caught up with laundry since there is always laundry? Haha nice thought, but I will chose not to think about that one too deeply here.
Yes, this weekend I am very please with how much work I was able to get done, my kids even "helped" as I sat down and went through things. I know I am very prejudiced but I have the best kids ever! Well I am going to unwind a little bit this evening and read a book before I head to bed. This coming weeks marks my 32nd week of pregnancy so as long as I keep on truckin but at a nice pace everything should be done by the end of this month about when I am considered "full term". I would absolutely love to have the baby on November 11th but the way I've been feeling I think its going to be shortly after I get full term, but only God knows when the baby will be born. We are all very excited about it!
