The finished closet!

Yesterday when I woke up I had more energy than I expected. The kids slept in until about 9:30 and then when we got up I made buttermilk pancakes. They are so great and the kids LOVE them. Then I put a roast in the crockpot for dinner and was done with their closet by 12:30. I was super productive. I love how it turned out. Their closet is really big and I had several HUGE boxes that were still packed up from the move. I cleared them all. I even ended up with 2 really big boxes of stuff for the garage sale.

Now I can honestly say that if I needed to pack any of my kids up for an overnight visit somewhere it would take me less than 5 minutes because everything is organized and put away. I did 5 loads of laundry yesterday too. It feels good to get things done.

I still have a lot of things I need to take care of but at least I am making progress. If I let things slide for a day I get behind a week. Why is that? I need to run to the store today and get some more cough medicine for Makayla. She is sick now. This virus made it's way through all 3 of my kiddos. I am so ready for it to be over with.

Great job on cleaning! I hear you about missing a day and being backed up for a week! Isn't that just so weird??

The closet looks amazing! Great job on that, yay for productivity!

I didn't know you got a new camera! What kind?

95% of the time I take pictures when we're out on errands I use my 30D, sometimes I take Allan's point and shoot, but not often.
I hate lugging around my camera, but I'm always glad when I do.

The thing about the moby wrap is it's so snug it keeps Payson held to my chest and I can have both hands free, that's how I take pictures.

Actually, though, I do take a LOT of one handed pictures! It's hard, but what else can you do?
