I started out this weekend wanting to get a lot accomplished and I feel like we did. One of the most important lessons I have learned as a mom is to de-clutter before Christmas. Out with the old, forgotten toys so that, in just a few weeks, there will be plenty of space for the new friends making there way in. I am really enjoying the Mom's groups on Facebook that are like a safer, mini version of Craigslist. I have sold quite a bit of toys, clothes and books and have found some things to buy on the cheap as well. For me, it's nice to make a little extra cash but even nicer knowing that our once-beloved belongings are going to a child that will really use them and love them, too!
I started the day with a lovely 4 mile run. My first run since I did the North Face 5K while suffering pain from plantar fasciitis. I have been pain-free for well over a week and on Friday my chiropractor gave me the okay to try running. I am happy to say NO foot pain!
L's room, organized and de-cluttered. Still more than enough toys, but much more organized than just a few days ago.
E asked me to play basketball with him. My first instinct was to say no, that I was working on my cleaning and organizing projects, but I am trying really hard to enjoy each moment I can with my children, and what better way is there than playing?
Did I mention we are putting tile in the boys bathroom? Well, we are. Here the boys are hard at work.
Cozy, comfy and dressed for Sunday. PS-I love my new duvet cover.
How did you spend your Sunday?
Are there any things you just HAVE to do around your house before Christmas?
