Hey y'all! I hope you've had a wonderful weekend and that you rang in the New Year with lots of friends and family surrounding you. Also, there's something magical about that New Year's kiss that happens at, oh let's say, 12:00:02. I sure do love me some of my Big Daddy and I love kissing him anyway--but somehow---that kiss symbolizes that we've made it through another year and that with God's help, we'll make it through this one too!
Now...for the Doublewide Clean Sweep saga....
This past Saturday our plans were to clean out Robbie's room. Before you get really excited, it didn't there....
We did, however, get the den and dining room cleaned out, did a little rearranging with some furniture, and I got ALL of the laundry done.
I'm happy with that. You have NO idea how happy my family will be now that the piano has been moved from the living room (where NOBODY dares to go) back to the den.
I love playing it and now that Robbie understands that he CANNOT touch it unless I'm with him, it's ok to have it back in the den. In case you're a piano geek like me, it's a Kawai CN41 digital piano and there are so many tricks to it, but I'm working on getting it all figured out!
As far as this post's title....that's that...Christmas vacation is over. I'm not sure if I'm ready to go back or not. The past two weeks with Robbie all day has been wonderful. I just love waking up with him around 9:30 and hanging out, doing whatever.
The school system had brand new WHITE tile (yea...what WERE they thinking?), installed in my classroom over the break. I am NOT looking forward to unpacking everything while trying to get everything together in my mind to actually get some TEACHING done!
Oh well....12 Saturdays until Spring Break! hee hee
Have a great week!

After reading your post of cleaning out. I hit my closet Saturday and took 4 huge bags to Goodwill. My clothes can breathe now.

Remember pics... I forgot to take any.

Good luck on the clean sweep, Josh and I are going to try and conquer our basement this spring! I hope our marriage can handle it!

Sounds like you had a great holiday.
I don't think any of us are really ready to go back to school. We have had snow all week my oldest is still home.
We, or shall I say I, have worked on cleaning our closets and just getting rid of things that we don't really use. Must be something about the New Year. Everyone seems to want to clean out.
Have a great evening!
