Today has been a pretty good day so far. The kids are working hard on their studies and the little ones are feeling a little better today. I was able to clean out the big pantry yesterday and will work on our two white storage cabinets that are in our dining room today. I usually store bulk snacks in one and extra buys in the other, like mac and cheese, ramen, and cake mixes. The snack cabinet is a mess as it's frequented by little hands but I don't think I'll need to do much to the other. I've got most of the surface areas in the house clean and orderly, so now I'm focusing on the inside stuff, like cabinets, drawers, shelves, and a few boxes left over from the move. I feel like I've never had a house so organized! It's great to wake up each morning and know that I don't have a huge mess to clean up. I just need to stay healthy so that I can keep it up. The kids are in training mode right now and if I went missing in action then the house would fall to chaos.LOL I still have to remind Jon to unload the dishwasher each morning and if I don't remind the kids to switch activities, they don't.LOL I'm guessing that after about 2 months, they should be able to keep things up without the constant reminders.
I'm also planning on a baking session either today or tomorrow. I still need to make bread and I need some muffins for the freezer. I'm going to play it by ear though, since yesterday was so stressful. I only have to do the minimum but anything extra will be a real boost right now.
I'm still printing out pictures. I've printed the most current and now I've gone back to 1-1-06 and will print everything from there to catch up. It will be so nice to have all the pictures printed and in books so that everyone can enjoy them. I got a shipment of picturemate paper and ink in the mail today so I should be able to print all the pictures. I'm also dating them as they come out of the printer, so everyone will know when these were taken. I'm only printing each date at a time so when one batch is done, I just mark them all and start the next date.
I bought Isaac a Potty. It came in the mail today. He thinks it's a vehicle of some sort.LOL I'm hoping to introduce potty training gently within the next few weeks. He may not be ready yet but it would sure be nice to only have one in diapers at a time. He has figured out how to get naked now and I'd at least like to have a potty for him to try out on naked days.LOL
Well, I guess that's it for now. I better get out of this chair if I'm ever going to get anything done.LOL
