What a busy week....

Can I just sit and relax for a minute....Pretty please with a cherry on top:)

My week has been crazy busy!!!!!!!

Monday and Tuesday were ok,but Wednesday-Friday,I was like OMG!!!!!

Wednesday was my anniversary,so I was trying to get things together for our special night...All my running around like a crazy woman paid off. The night was GREAT:)

Thursday I had to go to the kids school. My son PJ was  selected to be in a Math Competition....mommy is proud:)
So that meant I had to get up extra early to get myself ready plus the kids plus all of the morning things we do. I usually don't get fully made up when I drop the kids off at school...yes I'm one of those moms you see in the car line that looks like she just rolled out of
PJ did really well,he didn't place in the top ten but he was top 15 ,so I was happy:) 

After leaving the school I had a ton of errands to do and I do not like the town I live I would rather go to the dentist and get a root canal. I'm so glad I live in the country and not in the city. My town is falling to piece and nobody cares!!!!

Now it's Friday...another trip to the school for a Award Assembly.Don't get me wrong,I love to see my kids get recognized for doing great.But it's been something everyday and I'm ready to relax.
And my Saturday is booked full too...birthday parties and other things with family and friends.
So maybe Sunday will be my relaxing day...I hope!!!!!!

Kelly's Friday!!!!!

So you know what that means......

1. Where did you meet your spouse and did you instantly know it was love? We meet in high school...9th grade Alabama History class. We dated off and on through out school,but finally became a real couple in 11th grade and we have been together ever since. And we just celebrate our 10yr anniversary:)

2. What is your favorite room in your house?My to snuggle in bed and read a good book!!!

3. Can you wiggle your ears?No...that's weird

4. What is your evening ritual?Cook dinner,clean kitchen,bath kids,play with kids,read bedtime stories,tuck kids in bed,make lunches for the next day,and then FINALLY I get to relax in a hot bubble bath!!!!

5. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?6 hours is usually what I get,but I need 8 or 9 would be so nice.

I thought this was so funny...had to share:)

I'm a member of CafeMom...its a website for Moms. And I saw this....

I laughed so hard!!!!!

You can call me.... Mrs. Organized!!!!!

I wrote of list of things that I wanted to do better in 2011 a week ago. And one of them was to get my house organized. Well I didn't have anything planned yesterday so I decided to get started.

I started with my kitchen,I organized the cabinet and threw alot of stuff out....don't know why I was keeping some of the stuff????

I also rearranged the kitchen so that you can move around alot better.(Meaning more counter space) When my husband cooks he always complains that he doesn't have enough space....Well he has space 

So moving on to other parts of the room wasn't bad,just had some Christmas still up. I does stuff get so dusty???? I went through some books and I'm donating alot to my local library. This room was easy and I was done with it in no time....YAY!!!!!!!

Now the biggest challenge of all......drum roll please................
My bedroom and the dreaded closet....Oh No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have putting this off too long and it has become a monster.
I cleaned under the bed and found stuff that I didn't know I had. I cleaned and organized our dresser drawers and nightstands out....look much better:)
Now the I have too??? HaHa!!!!
I just pulled everything out and started fresh.
I found some stocking stuff for my kids that I forgot to put in their stocking...oops:(
P.S. they ate the Christmas cookies after dinner:)
It amazes me of how much stuff my closet could hold,cause it was packed in there....shame shame on me.
After about 1 1/2 hours I was done and sing HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!
Now that I'm done  my house is so organized and I feel so accomplished in what I did.And it going to stay that way!!!!!!


Saturday, January 8, 2011
