Next stop ---

Day 13 DONE!

Before:
After:

I'm gonna backtrack a couple of days because I've been able to get a lot done and my house is starting to come back together.

Thursday was Freezer day -----

That morning I spent 2 hours at the elementary school helping in two of my kids classes. I came home and did the freezer, did my preschool carpool duty, then I organized the fridge, the spice cabinet, upper corner cabinet (stores mixing bowls & such), 2 cup cupboards, took care of kids, helped with homework, read scriptures, said prayers, and tucked the kiddos in because hubby had to work late. Not bad for a days work!

I was glad Toni gave us a hint that the spice cabinet was Friday's task because it gave me a chance to get caught up on a few things.

Yesterday Dan let three of the kids miss school and he took them skiing. It was Hailey's first time and she LOVED it & did great! I'm typing this on my phone so I'll post pictures later.

While half the crew was on the mountain the little ones & I put away Christmas. FINALLY! I had been waiting until the kids went back to school and then came across the 21 day challenge and it didn't happen. As mentioned in an earlier post my preschooler cried when I told her I was putting away the Christmas decorations. I kept them up another week and then yesterday while we were taking down she asked if we could at least keep the tree up until the snow melts. That might not be for another 3 months! But I can at least give her another few days. I finally figured out why. The kids missed the last day of school because we were gone over Christmas so she didn't give me the ornament she made at school until the beginning of January and she told me she wants us to be able to see her present. So sweet and pulls at the heartstrings just a bit. So there you have it. I'm leaving up the tree just a little bit longer.
