By this I am referring, of course, to my house.
Between the string of birthdays around here, having my niece here for a few days (which means that she and my same-age eldest co-produced an incredible volume of crafts!), being at the cottage on weekends (which means laundry, grocery shopping, packing and organizing on Fridays, and unpacking and more laundry on Monday mornings), h/school books and supplies and papers all over the place, and general life chaos, I haven't paid any attention to the state of the house for a good few weeks...and, believe me, it shows!
Every. single. room. in the house, including closets and bathrooms, needs attention...tidying and cleaning. It's a little embarrassing, in addition to which I'm never completely comfortable in such a messy house. I wasn't even sure where to start, but while the kids were trampolining yesterday afternoon, I spent about thirty minutes in the mudroom, tidying weeks of that room being the dumping ground for everything that came through the house. I probably need an equal amount of time yet to finish that job, but it's looking way better already. Next up after that?? Organizing the hundreds of audio books that we have accumulated through the years, which I gathered together a few weeks ago, dumped onto the dresser in my bedroom, and left there in piles ever since.
It'll be nice to tick at least a few things off of my two-page-long project list!
