time to myself... almost

What a cute lil' nerd :)

circa 2010

Today my husband took the girls on a road trip to visit family in South Dakota for the weekend. He's going down for the annual Nerd-o-Rama and Zombie party. Have I mentioned that my kids love zombies? No fear in these kids, I tell ya! My kids are pretty awesome. So, anyway, they are all excited to dress up like the living un-dead and get their scare on. I can't wait to see pictures!

I did take part last year, and had a really great time, but this year I decided to stay home and take it easy. I figured it would be best to keep Alex home this year because he's prone to crabiness and this weekend would be surely filled with late nights and lots of activities. Besides, I just got home from a very busy trip to San Diego and I'm not sure I'm ready for such a busy weekend. I had a feeling that I would go and be miserable most of the time and then come home and need a week to recover.

So, in the best interest of all involved, I decided to stay home and keep my handsome little guy with me. We've got nothing special planned. Lots of writing and housework and playing and resting and maybe some cooking, I don't know. I just want to take advantage of this time that I have to get things done!

My biggest goals for this weekend are to get a lot of blog posts written to have ready for publishing whenever I don't have the time to write time-sensitive posts. In other words, general topics that can be posted at any time. My other goal is to get our house cleaned up and do some major decluttering. I don't know why there is ALWAYS a ton of stuff to get rid of. Seriously, why?! We don't even have much money so where is all this stuff coming from? How do we get it?! Is it breeding in the closets and toy baskets? I want to be ruthless. I've got boxes at the ready. It's time to let some things go.

Stay tuned.

  1. I think the stuff does multiply in the closets!!! I hope you took some before/after shots of the decluttering...because I need some inspiration. :)
