Where to begin?

Ugh. Blogger confession: I seem to have misplaced my blog time. I've been out of town for the past two weekends in a row sans kids, and this week I've returned to my not-been-disciplined-or-told-no-in-two-weeks children. Eyeyeye. They are whiped out and I am too.'s been a little crazy getting back on track here.

Here's my other confession: keeping my house clean and keeping up with laundry is taking up ALL of my spare time. I'm so fortunate to have two great sleepers for kids and their 6:30pm bedtime is right up there with winning the Powerball in my book. Despite the fact that I don't go to sleep until at least 11pm, for some reason, I am having a hard time accomplishing much in the 4 1/2 hours I have to myself each evening. I have so many projects going on that I'm having trouble getting anywhere with any of them. Here are a few of the things I've been working on:

- Gloria's wall hanging - it STILL isn't finished!

- Rosemary's coordinating wall hanging - it's about half done

- Rosemary's birthday party invitations - a princess tea party theme

- Basement storage room - it's 5/6th's done being painted...UGHHHHHHHH...just need to finish it (that's tonight's goal)!

- Basement light fixtures - installed the new ones...BIG TIME BOO. Had no idea they were flourescents and they ruined the basement in the flip of a switch. Need to return them and hunt down new ones.

So, while there are all kinds of things underway over here, none of them seem to be getting finished. And what did I just take a break from writing this post to do? Photograph stuff in the garage that needs to be listed on Craigslist. WHY? When did I become so A.D.D.? The underlying problem here? I have no list. I work best off of a prioritized list helping to keep me focused and on track. Clearly I'm no good without a list and am becoming incredibly frustrated with my lack of accomplishments lately. You'll be happy to know that my kitchen is sitting a mess right now and I have clean laundry waiting to be folded, yet I've prioritized reaching out to my faithful followers because YOU. ARE. IMPORTANT!

So what would be next after I finish allllllllllll of these projects up, you ask? Tackling this puppy:

The laundry room. Eyeyeye. In the coming days, I'll do posts on each of the above projects and I can tell you all about how much fun painting raw cinder block is (sense the sarcasm because I'm doing my best to lay it on thick;-) Let's just say that Jeff just cracked open paint can #7 on the extremely modest sized storage room!

So, stay tuned as I promise to get back on track with you. I miss you (and frankly, I NEED you;-)
