Organizing the Mail

img_8910

Mail comes to our home six days a week. There’s almost always something in our box when we check the mail.

We just toss it on the table and deal with it whenever. Well, that system isn’t working. Our water bill wasn’t paid. Continue reading

Brother P-Touch Label Maker

One of my goals for 2019 is to get our home organized. I want everything to clearly have a place that it belongs.

If everything has an address, a label on a container or shelf, it will be easier to know what goes where, especially when I’m not there for the family to ask where it goes.

Organizing the Utility Closet

One of my 2019 goals is to organize our home. Rather than doing what I normally do and making a huge plan to have everything in perfect order in days, I took a day just to work on the utility closet.

We were also told that Navy has severe allergies to dust mites, so it’s really important that we get the house in order with a schedule to clean and dust to ensure that the dust bunnies don’t make him stuffed up or sick. Continue reading

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

So much changes over the course of a year. 2017 was no exception. Not only was it a fresh start from 2016, but it ushered in a lot of change and excitement for our family.

January 2017

img_7211After having lots of issues with the battery on my van dying, I got a fancy new battery. It’s okay to be jealous. Thankful to not have any more issues.

Girl Scout Cookie season started. The beginning of the longest two months ever. I love the cookies, but I’m not sad when it ends in March.

Lily got an MRI on her ankle. She has Osteochondritis, but we didn’t know the extent until after the MRI.

I celebrated 10 years at work. I’ve been working with the same company for 10 years. That used to be the norm, but it isn’t so commonplace anymore. I love the girls I work with and adore our clientele. Continue reading

Staycation: Day 1 – Productive

Today has been incredibly productive, even more so that I had hoped!

We had a fun trip to the library. Lily got the rest of the books she needs to complete her Building Bridges with Books bingo sheet. Navy got some new books about animals and trucks. I got the American Girl Kit Kitteridge series (again).

We also discovered movies at the library, which will save us on rental fees!

Lily and I played post office with some outdated ATM envelopes. They were just going to be trashed, so we are making sure they don’t get shredded in vain.

Lots of cleaning and organizing. It’s time for autumn cleaning! Then, packing…

My fantastic man and his friend came to see about fixing my van. Navy observed and turned on the hose to help. So grateful for wonderful, caring people who are willing to lend a hand to keep my family safe!

I am so impressed with everything that we’ve gotten done and that we even squeezed in some fun!
